Some have suggested having team names for the tourney would be fun πŸ™‚
So... If teams prefer... they can sign up with a Team Name.
If no Team Name given before tourney start,
players FAF names will be used in the Challonge Tourney Brackets instead.

Therefore,
players signing up as Doubles may also include a Team Name along with the
two players names and ratings.

I would like to apply for this. I have no teammate, so yeah ... I am slightly above 1800 i think.

1

I'd like to sign up - I'm 1800+ one week, then 1800- the next.

@edtjuh
Hi edtjuh,
Sorry to inform you that this is an <1,800* rating tournament with some minor exceptions, described below.
and
you have 2 > 1,800 ratings (Glb=1,900 + 2v2 1,880)
If..... You only had the 38 game 2v2 rating of 1,880 rating, AND
you next highest >100 game history rating was "say 1720 rating"..
We would be able to combine weigh the 2 ratings to get a sub 1800 rating,
and be able to register.
Hope to see you in the Rainbow Cup VI Open Rating tourny in February.

New Tournament Rating Calculating method
to determine ratings of players with 1 rating above 1800, where
there is a "small" sample size and
Where the players next highest rating has a greater than 100 game history.
The next highest rating - will "weigh" that rating with a 100 game weight.
That Rating will be combined in proportion with the >1800 small sample rating as
described below:

Example:
Use this formula, to find a Tournament Rating:
(>1800 rating x small sample game total) + (Lower rating x 100 game weight) = (Multiplied ratings / combined game total) = New rating.

Example of the One time this rule has been used "so far" in this tournament:
Exselsior's new RC tournament rating will be
(Glb) 1714 x 100 games + (4v4) 1874 x 26 games = 220384/126 = 1749 Combined adjusted rating

Any Players with 2 ratings above 1800 will Not be able to participate in the <1,800 rating tournament.

Remember >1,800 players....
There is going to be another open Rainbow Cup at end of February where
historically everyone above 1,800 has
been picked to play in the 12 team, 3 man teams.
Hope to see you soon in the next Open!

Remember the idea is to have as many players be able to participate in this 'fun' tourney as possible.
One small sample size +1,800 rating should not disqualify a person.
Lets have fun and also HELP out the AI Mod Developers.
If you play versus AI from time to time....
now is the chance to help give back a little to the AI teams... by just participating πŸ™‚
Thanks

@rowanmorseyt
Hi Rowan,
This tourney is for under 1,800* rated players.
The previous RC's were all Open rated.

Good news though is that the Next Rainbow Cup - RCVI - 3v3 on Feb 25th,
Will once again be an Open rating tourny,
Where you can sign up as a single OR
with One friend.

The Top (12) 2 player rated signed up teams,
will get to play together and
will draft their 3rd team member from the singles draft pool.

So you can sign up with a friend as a 2 person team, or
sign up as a single.
Hope to see you for the RC VI open rated tourny πŸ™‚

Remember........
Registration is fluid until the last day of registration on Sept 11th.

As the Singles registration draft pool fills up...
Singles may recruit each other and make up 2 person teams, Or
remain as singles until registration ends on 9/11,
to be drafted on to the already registered 2 player teams starting on 9/12.

Draft starts from the 12th seeded team, and
proceeds on upward to 1st seeded team.

Players who register as a team, may also submit a "team name" to
be used in the FAF Live casts, and in
the FAF Forged Alliance Forever YouTube channel video upload thumbnails here:
