The Settling Scores Tournament

Got a score to settle? A rival you just can't seem to pin down for a fight? Someone who you want to decisively say you play better than? Well, this is the tournament for you.

Dates: 02 October 2021

Tournament Director: CaptainKlutz

Challonge: https://challonge.com/eurjj0fz
IRC: #SettlingScores

Prizes: Tournament Champion avatar + $20 for the 8 highest rated victors

This tournament is open to everyone with a 1v1 ladder rating of 1500 or higher.

How does it work?

  • Pick someone within 200 ladder rating of you who you've played many games against or with and challenge them to a best of 7.
  • The more history between you, the better! We want to see rivalry and revelry!
    If they accept, and I approve of the pairing, then you'll play on October the 2nd.
  • The winner of the Bo7 will get $20 plus an avatar.
  • If more than 8 pairs sign up, only the 8 highest rated pairs will get a payout so I don't go bankrupt 😄
  • The tournament will take place on October 2.

Map Pool

No, half these maps aren't on the vault yet. Yes, I'm planning to have them all ready on time. Yes, I made 10 out of 12 of these maps.

Rules

  • Ties are replayed.
  • Pick and ban order is done between the players (Dota 2 style):
    Dota2PB
  • You will be allotted a timeslot to play in the week before the tournament; you will be evenly distributed (approx. 1 matchup starting every hour) to ensure good coverage by casters. Don't expect to play earlier than 1200 UTC or later than 2100 UTC. I will coordinate with each pair to ensure good start times for each party.
  • All participants need to be in the IRC chat of the Tournament 20 minutes before their slot starts.
  • All tournament code of conduct rules apply.

Looks good!

While we are at it, if you like, I am working on an automated sheet that players can use to query picks. The code is not implemented in full, but this is the template I intend to use. There IS some nice conditional formatting in place so that when factions are entered it changes to the color of that faction (makes it easy to read quick!).

The amount of games, maps, etc can be scaled fairly easily. I can show you how to use it if you like sometime.

(Small disclaimer I am going on a climbing trip in the fall, so long as I'm free lets do it. I could also be convinced to play on a different day if allowed.)
