Prize Donations

Tournament Structure:

The tournament structure is going to be Single-Elimination with the following:

Round 1: 8 matchups in BO1
Round 2: 4 matchups in BO1
Round 3: 2 matchups in BO3
Bronze Match: BO3
Final Round: BO3

Matchups will be seeded (using ladder rating) to streamline elimination of lower seeds.

Maps Selection & Faction Veto:

This tournament will have **NO faction veto **.

The event will have a 15 map pool; however, the BO1 rounds will have a map selected by the TD. The BO3 rounds WILL have a map veto.

For the BO1 rounds, a single map will be selected that all players play.
For the BO3 rounds, maps will be decided by the map veto process.

Map Veto Process

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.

The Ava you are talking about - Ladder Knight is not a permanent avatar and it's being held by the current winner of the latest League Invitational.

That was intended to be a perm ava btw, or rather like a yearly one since I wanted to basically have every person get some part of a knight’s gear and then it can be handed off for the next season.

What do you mean? I have seen events start between 9 AM and 12 noon my time throughout. What is the "usual" time?

0

14 or 15 utc

If I can find some TD help I can start some later. For the foreseeable future, had to shuffle around my schedule quite a bit and after last event taking over 7 hours, really going to compromising some days.

I can run some events to start at 14 for sure going forward, but this one in particular I have to ensure I’m done well before some other plans.
