# RCVI - Venus Rising ~ 3v3 ~ \$1,500

Registration is now open.

To calculate a players RC tournament rating:
We use the players highest leaderboard rating (200 game minimum)
Jan 6th screenshot is used, with a 1 yr history database.
Global rating has 50 points subtracted from rating.

If highest rating is of a game type with - less than 200 games played...
We will proportional blend the players next highest ratings to obtain a RC rating.

TD will assign ratings ~ No math required

I'm interested

Going to use a combination of team sign-ups and drafting.
With a 2 player team max rating of 4.1 K for pre draft registration.
Players rated above 2.2 K will be capped at 2.2k for the 4.1K team sign up cap.
Remainder of team players are drafted.

I have come up with a new
Team formation and Draft process,
for this tournament.

It allows Captains to register as a Single, or
with a playing partner as a 2 player team
But...
this method gives Captains a "trade option"
in round 1 of the draft (see below)
...........

Players may register as a Single, or
as a 2 player team - with a 4.1K combined RC rating cap.
(Captains of these teams who are rated >2.2K have their
rating capped at 2.2K, - allowing the registering of
any player RC rated 1900 and less)

The top 8 rated players, registered as either
a Single, or as a 2 player team captain, are

TEAM FORMATION and DRAFT PROCESS
Round 1 of draft:
Draft starts with the 8th seeded Captain and
continues sequentially up thru ALL 8 Captains.

When it is a Single Captains turn to draft he may:
choose ANY player in the draft pool,
whether or Not the combined team total rating is >4.1K.

When it is a 2 player Team Captain's draft turn,
he has TWO options:
1: He may "Pass" and Keep his pre-draft registered partner, or
2: He may "Trade" his Pre-Draft registered partner and
----------"Draft" - ANY player in the draft pool,
thus sending his Pre-Draft registered partner to the draft pool.

Round 2 of draft:
8th seed Captain drafts Any player in the draft pool.
Continue draft process up to #1 seed Captain.

.

So what we basically have is:
A 2 round draft, with the
Captains option to register pre-draft with
any one mutually agreeable team player,
within a 4.1K rating cap.
But...
Still allows Captain's an Option to trade their pre-draft picks.

Any pre-draft player who was "traded" out - in Round 1 of the draft, is
immediately placed into the draft pool, and
has the rest of Round 1 and all of Round 2 to get drafted, and
possibly.. even by his original team

I believe this method works very well, and
is "fairer" to the top seeded Captains in both -
weaker and stronger fields of players.
With a weaker field -
Captains will get to register pre-draft , and
"lock in" - one player of his choice.
With a stronger field -
Captains may have an option to trade out his pre-draft pick, and
draft a player that would of been above the pre-draft registration cap.

@Fearghal you could talk to @Javi about creating one of the longer dedicated posts for this that would be on the website

I'd like to give it a try.

New Team Entrants!

Team "Venus" is entering the tournament as AI team #4
Venus is sending their 2 top commanders -
Commanders 'Deep Pink' and 'Shocking Pink' are
reporting for their first RC appearance.

Team "Spacenet" is AI team #3.
Spacenet has regrouped since their last defeat and
are now stronger than before.

Players may now find themselves in 4-way FFA Brawls-
With Team #2, Spacenet and Venus!

The 2 main reasons for adding another AI team:

1-Unbalanced AI behavior's and builds from some AI's, when...
---AI's spawn on opposite sides of the map and assigned to same team.

2-FAF Live casters suggested adding a 4th AI during the last 2 RC casts :)~

i would like to sign up a team consisting of me Sulfur1 and Flying_Olsen

"Good luck and a safe landing commanders!"
