  • 5v5 Tournament Rules + Signup

    Hello!

    Welcome to the Rules and Signup thread. After getting significant feedback from the first tournament, we have amended the rules slightly for the 5v5. Please read the rules before signing up. The signup details will be below the rules.

    For questions and feedback, please go to the announcement topic. Posts in this topic that are not sign ups will be removed.

    Follow this link to see the 5v5 brackets with projected match times

    Rules
    1. No revives. You are not allowed to use Revival Flask or any revive spells. Having any items or spell equipped that can revive will lead to an instant disqualification.
    2. People who are knocked down are done for the fight and have to leave the arena if they get up before the fight is over.
    3. No mounts. Having a mount equipped in the ring will lead to an instant disqualification
    4. Participants are allowed to wear gear with an item power equal to standard Tier 6.3 equipment. This includes, but is not limited to, Tier 6.2 Artifact equipment, Tier 6.1 Hell Artifact equipment and Tier 7.2 standard equipment.
    5. Item quality is not regulated.
    6. Potions and consumables of any tier are permitted, except revive flasks. Note: we will not wait for your potion cool-downs, use them wisely.
    7. Each fight will have a 5 minute time limit. If the time runs out, the team with the fewest people knocked down wins. At the end of the five minutes, if both teams have an equal number of downed players, the next team to score a knockdown wins.
    8. Teams will wait on islands in Black Forest and Queensmarket, to avoid interference. These island are created by us.
    9. Team members must all be in the same location for a quick and smooth transition between fights. If players are offline or not in the correct location, they will not be teleported to the event arena.
      E.g. If 4 of your team mates are present in Queensmarket, and 1 is in Blackforest, you will fight with only 4 members.
    10. Each team must have a team leader. The team leader is the only one who can sign up their team and is responsible for their team at all time. This includes making sure your members are eligible to participate and are in the correct location at all times during the tournament.
    11. No-shows and disqualified players from the Battle Royale tournament are excluded from this event. A full list of excluded players can be found in the second post of this topic or by clicking here. No exceptions.
    12. Bring your best behaviour, good sportmanship is a must. This includes, but is not limited to, being respectful to each other, not throwing fights,


    Tournament Details
    • Tournament will be held on Saturday, February 4 and Sunday, February 5. Players need to present in Queensmarket or Black Forest at 18:00 UTC sharp and await further instruction from a GM.
    • Only the first 16 teams to sign up can participate in the event. Signups open Thursday, February 2 at 18:00 UTC.
    • The tournament will follow single-elimination brackets. Rounds one and two be feature best-of-one, the semifinals will be best-of-three and the finals will be best-of-five.
    • As stated earlier, teams will have to fight short-handed if members do not show up or are not in the correct city. Substitutions are not allowed.
    • Matches will take place in this arena (warning: big image). Team 1 will come from the left stairs, Team 2 will come from the right stairs. The space provided and a small portion of the stairs (which will be marked with standards) will be the fighting area. Leaving the fighting area will count as a knockdown on your team, and that person will be removed from the ring.

  • The following people, and all of their alts, are disqualified from participating in the tournament. Don't try to sneak an alt in. We will check, and your team will not be allowed to substitute. If you are on this list, and do not believe you deserve to be, please contact @FlufferPope on discord: Flufferpope#2853

    Those who did not show up / got disqualified during the tournament made organization and execution way more difficult and cumbersome than it needed to be and they have proven to be unreliable participants. To minimize troubles with the upcoming tournament, everybody who got DQ'd or did not show up got barred from participating. This policy was stated in advance. We would like the 5v5 tournament to run as smoothly as possible for all of those who participate. People no-showing or cheating needs to be discouraged so everyone who participates is able to enjoy the event and have fun.


    Again, there are NO substitutions if you have someone DQd on your team. Team leaders, make sure you know who is on your team.
