# Rainbow Cup V ~ 3v3vAI ~ <1,800 ~ \$1.2K

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

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
Thanks

Can you register Popiska and Plunder in one team pls?

RowanMorseYT - sign me up! if I can....

rowan for shame

@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
Hope to see you for the RC VI open rated tourny

@fearghal alrighty sounds good!

Draft pool

Sign me up chief, 1800

Don't be shy... Sign up below now (registration open till Sept 11th)
Only 4 teams of 2 signed up so far with avg combined rating of 3300.
and
Only 9 singles for the draft with ratings bet 1100 and 1700.

We are looking for 36 players to participate,
to make up the 12 teams we need to fill the brackets.

Still looking for 8 more teams of 2 and
some more singles.

If you have weekend of Sept 24/25 free....
ask a friend to play, and
get a very good - Three in Twelve chance to
take home some sweet \$\$ winnings and a cool avatar.

excuse me i should be captain

@deli
Hi Deli,
To be a captain... you have to sign up with another player as a 2 person team.

Players that sign up as Doubles AND
make up the top 12 combined avg rated team are seeded 1 - 12.
(the higher rated player of the 2 person team is considered the captain)

Then the 12 teams will pick "draft" from the Singles pool to make up their 3rd team member.

If you sign up as a single (as you have)

• you have to wait until registration is over and hope to
be drafted on to one of the 12 teams.

But...
YOU can always join with a friend at any time,
and then be a captain of one of the 12 teams,

You can also ask any of the other singles in the draft pool now, to join you.
(the players in the single's pool are "free agents" and can join with
anyone, at any time, if they so choose, or
they can remain in the singles pool and wait for the draft.)

This tourney is to allow 2 Friends to sign up and play together, AND
for opportunity to get drafted on to one of the established teams.

The registration process is "Fluid", and
you can change your registration status at any time,
from a single - to part of a doubles team,
break up your team and change partner,
break up team and change to single, OR
if you are a single - recruit a player from the draft pool at
any time to make a 2 person team.

Ask a friend to join you, or
contact some in the draft pool now to join with you, or
wait until later date to join with someone else.

If you Don't join with a friend, and choose to remain as a single........

• You have a very high rating - and will "Most Likely" get drafted onto one of
the 12 two person teams.

If we D'ONT have 12 teams before the draft starts,
(but have 36 players total)
we will make the highest rated single draftee's captains,
(most likely you, if you don't pick a partner before draft)
and then have them draft one team mate from the singles pool,
to create a 2 person team.
We will then "Re-Seed" the 2 man teams, by avg combined rating,
and then start the draft.

Hope I made this clear, If you still have questions....
Check Post #4 above to see the current
4 teams and 9 singles.
