April League Invitational
Welcome to the first Invitational Tournament in the new League Invitational Series concept. I’ve explained a lot about this tournament in the general thread for the series, so feel free to refer to that thread for additional information. I’ll put a link at the bottom of this post. I’ll keep these event-specific threads with information related specifically to that invitational.
This event will involve the top 8 players of the March League Month facing off against one another in a Round-Robin format over the weekend of April 10th and April 11th. These players will be fighting not only for a cash prize, but also for points that will help secure themselves a spot in the FAF LotS End-of-the-Year Tournament!
April 10th 14:00 UTC
April 11th 14:00 UTC
The event should be covered by archsimkat and Farmsletje.

This Tournament will take the top 8 interested 1800+ players sorted by their placement on the preceding month’s league leaderboard. If a player fails to claim an invite, their spot will be given to the 9th place finisher and so on.
Then, these 8 players will proceed to play a Round Robin format against one another with each game series being a BO3. Day 1 of the Tournament will be 4 BO3s with Day 2 being the final 3 BO3 games.
In the case of ties, the following system will be used to get uncontested placements:
First, I will utilize total BO3 wins against the opponents you are tied with.
Then, I will use total point differentials. Essentially if someone won a series 2-0, they will gain 2 point score differential in the tournament. If they win 2-1, they only get 1. If you have more total points across all of your games than the person you tied, you rank higher than them.
If there is still some sort of tie left, then it will be determined by highest ladder rating.
The map pool for this event will utilize the ladder pool of the preceding month. It will follow the standard 15 map pool 4/6/5 breakdown from last year’s LotS event.
In order to select the maps played for each BO3, the two participants in each stage will discuss amongst themselves which maps they would like to veto. Each player will be given the right to 3 vetoes and the bottom player in the bracket will be given the first veto. Each player will also submit vetoes sequentially. Once the list is down to 9 maps, the players will be given the right to pick which of the nine they wish to play. The bottom seed will be given the right to pick the first map and the top seed will pick the second.
In the case of a tie, the players will veto down to a single map with the bottom seed once again having the first veto.
