Calibration tournament #2.
26.06.2021 18:00 (Moscow time).
Tournament directors: SiwaonaDaphnewen (Apofenas), Inspektor_Kot
Challonge will be announced by the start of the tournament. IRC channel won’t be used, instead we’re going to use tournament channels in Russian discord (https://discord.gg/rW6AHqr).
Last month we ran test tournament for low-rated players for Russian community. This time we got some funding and doing same for all FAF players.
Tournament will take place in Rus discord, but not exclusive for Russian only.
This tournament will have swiss-style or round-robin format depending on how many players we get. This is based on suggestions from last tournament so participants could accumulate replay base and ask personal trainers for analysis. (you will likely have to play 5-6 games during tournament regardless of results)
Game rules are not standard, so take a look at details below. In short, time for game is limited, you get 20 minutes to kill opponent and if none of players succeeds – map starts shrinking every 5 minutes until 25% of map is left (min 40). Maps will be generated so there’s land in center of map. - this way we limit round length. Previously participants didn't even live long enough to see first shrink
1 place: Tournament winner+50$;
2 place: Faction face+25$;
3 place: Faction logo.
Winner pays the commission for money transfer.
We use discord platform to run tournament. This means in order to sign up you need to send a private message to tournament director and state your FAF nickname and FAF ratings (Apofenas#2305 Inspektor_Kot#7713).
Love, looks like a good way to do a low level tournament!
The tournament is finished.

Thanks for participating!
Got to add that some players decided to avoid tournament thinking they "already lost from start". Yet we used the system that allowed us to split players by their rating and create competitive matchups throughout the tournament (ladder system tends to give much more unfair matchups...). As a result guys with highest couldnt manage to leave group stage of tournament and guy with lowest rating was compiting for 3 place in final stage.
