LegendoftheStars End-of-the-Year 2020 Championship

The Group Brackets are finalized. Subs will be able to fill in if people fail to show up/resign prior to the tourney date. A reminder that if you forfeit your placement in the tournament, you also forfeit your ability to claim your piece of the prizepool.

People that have made it into the Groups can give me 6 maps that they would like to play in the Group Stage through PM on FAF/Discord/Forums. I will take their preferences into account while making the 15 maps. However, I need the map picks by this Wednesday.

In addition, I'm still looking for 1-2 additional TDs that could help manage the group stages. If you have an interest, message me. You will be responsible for keeping track of the faction picks and map picks of the 4 players in a specific group.

So some final adjustments to the tournament format following some realizations during the qualifiers:

  1. There will be a rule enforced to keep anyone that isn’t EITHER a caster OR a TD out of the observers. I will be talking with moderation to take action and both force close your client through admin tools and ban you from FAF if necessary. Please do not make me do needless work because you feel obligated to be a nuisance during FAF’s largest event.

If you’re a player, feel free to kick them before the game begins, though I know it’s hard to tell who is and isn’t a caster so the burden isn’t on you.

  1. I will be making the tiebreaker map in the various best ofs be decided by a sequential veto from the rest of the pool left between the players in the series. This means bottom player begins with first veto again, then top player, and so on for 3 rotations until the 7 maps are reduced to 1.

In addition, I should announce maps sometime later today when I get home.

@FtXCommando I might be misunderstanding the situation, but if we really are having this kind of issue, wouldn't this be easily solved by just having the games be password protected?

It’s a solution, just really annoying as now players need to be pm’d by casters, need to pm opponent, games could launch without a caster by accident (already a thing without passworded games)

Hi, what unit cap setting should we use? Just played a game on ditch and 1k seemed brutal low (hit it already 18 minutes in). Also warning to other players: supreme scoreboard unit cap is bugged right now, but it works without the mod.

0

The tourney will use base default settings for all game options. I do not have a problem of people going up to 1500 unit cap so long as both players agree to doing it. If you want to scale up unit cap, just let the other player know before launching the game. If he says no, then launch with the default unit cap.

Also as another small thing, please do not choose close to identical colors during your games. It’s not funny and there’s no reason to do it other than to spite people that might cast/stream the games later.

Good post @arma473 But I deleted the stat post for now. You included information that specifically linked players to their faction vetos and that is unfair asymmetric information for other players to use.

I also couldn't just delete the segments that had it because people can look through post editions on the forum.

I copied the post into a google doc though, it can be posted at the end of the tournament.

Actually just realized you also put that into the game replay post so I had to remove that too. I saved that one as well anyway, just message me if you want access to the doc I put it into.
