Hello and welcome to the Qualifier Tournament for the 2021 Fall Invitational. The winners of this tournament will fill up the remaining slots in the group stage as well as determine substitutes. Players who have received invites are not eligible to participate (a list of invites can be found here).
This is going to be a 1v1 Double Elimination bracket with BO3 games in the winners bracket and BO1 games in the losers bracket. The bracket will be seeded based on ladder rating. Each BO3 will consist of a 5x5, 10x10, and 20x20, played in that order.
There is no rating requirement or maximum number of signs ups for this tournament, the number of BO1s vs BO3s in the winners bracket will be adjusted to ensure a timely tournament.
All standard tournament rules apply. In the event of a tie in position occurs (ie 7-8th) which is needed to determine whether a player will advance to the group stage, a BO1 will be played to determine who advances. Signups will close 15 minutes before the start time.
Date: October 16th
Start Time: 14:00 UTC
Chat: /join #fall
Tournament Directors: Swkoll + TBD
In addition to qualifying for the group stage, 1st place will receive the summer qualifier champion avatar. If there are 10 accepted invites, the top 6 players from the qualifier will advance to the Group Stage with higher places receiving a higher group pick/seed.
To signup leave your faf name and ladder rating in a post below (or just msg me on faf).
Hello and welcome to the 2021 Fall Invitational Tournament. The 2nd annual Fall Invitational is a top level 1v1 tournament featuring a series of invited players and an open qualifier to find the top 16 players on FAF. For those who are not familiar, there will be series of invites sent out to previous tournament winners, and an open qualifier on October 16th to fill the remainder of the 16 slots. This is followed by a group stage on October 23rd where the top 8 players will advance to a single elimination playoff bracket on October 30th-31st whose winners will receive prizes and glory, including LoTS qualification points! (See here for details)
All tournaments will be casted on twitch.tv/faflive starting at 14:00 UTC.
Special maps such as crazyrush and hardffa will be put into their own category for the Group Stage and Playoffs rather than being considered normal 5x5s. The map pool in the Group Stage will be increased to 11 (from 10) maps to compensate. Morax's new faction vetoing tool may be used for the group stage and playoffs.

This is an open qualifier, all players who have not received invites are welcome to participate. It will be a double elimination tournament with BO1s and BO3s in the winner's bracket and BO1s in the loser's bracket. Maps will be selected by myself from a pool for each round. Players will be seeded by ladder rating at the time of signup.
The group stage:
This will consist of 4 groups of 4 players playing a round robin style tournament with the top 2 of each group advancing. Games will be BO3s. Groups will first be seeded by Invitational points, then the qualified players will get to pick their group. Maps will be chosen by players from a pool of 11 using a veto/pick system with 2 vetoes each, players will make alternating vetoes and picks with loser seed vetoing first and higher seed picking first. Faction veto will also be used.
This is a single elimination tournament with all BO5 matches expect for the championship match which will be BO7. Maps are chosen by players in a pick/veto system from a pool of 15 with 3 vetoes each, players will make alternating vetoes and picks. Players advancing from the group stage can submit one map to the finals bracket map pool (subject to Tournament Director veto). Faction veto will also be used. There first two rounds of the Playoffs will be played on Saturday and the 3rd place and championship match will be played on Sunday. The 3rd place match will start at 14:00 UTC and the championship match will follow it.
Invitational points have been updated with results of major tournaments since the Summer Invitational, all players have lost 25% (rounded up) of their points for decay, and then 8 points were given for 1st place in the Summer Invitational, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd, 2 for 4th, and 1 for 5th-8th. 2 points were also given for 1st and 1 point for 2nd in the August League Invitational. First place in Mini LoTS #1 will also receive 1 point. The 1st and 2nd place in the October League Invitational will also receive 2 and 1 points respectively. The invite list will be updated to reflect these results after those tournaments occur. This produced the following list of 14 invites:
1- Blast Chilled
@archsimkat Let's go B)

Guys, is this the first time the balance forum has successfully produced a balance change?
@espinotorreto go fight @TheWheelie
@sheikah Is there anywhere we could see a breakdown for what is the % chance for a map type on a given map size?
I think removing game count along with "greyness" might actually be reasonable. There's still rating to determine skill and opti balance will properly infer the uncertainty in new player's ratings.
Congrats to Paralon for becoming King of Crazyrush and to Petric for becoming Prince of Crazyrush.

@fremy_speeddraw It's been so long since you've played ladder that you aren't on the website leaderboard. I have no idea what your ladder rating is.
In lieu of a fancy new UI mod, fixing supreme scoreboard to work in live replay again would be greatly appreciated.
@zeldafanboy Very cool, I don't think anyone has ever made fan art for an event I've run before!
I've posted the challonge and avatars, also I've clarified that there will be a 1500 unit cap.
