Multi Winter Championship 2013 Tue, 15 October 2013 09:04
Hi all

Cold evenings are again back and so it's the time to play Multi again.

The tournament is already four years old.


Now it's time for the 4th edition, deadline for signing up is 30th October 2013. Group will be announced on 31st October 2013.

Here there are the rules, there are several updates after the suggestions we received last year.In bold the parts modified.
Qorlas




Rules
BRIEF

Tournament will be played during November and December
There will be 3 phases in the tournament:
1st phase: starting groups of 6 or 7 players - 5 5ers and 10 4ers (6 players), 5 5ers and 8 4ers (7 players) for each player. Everyone that meets requirements set in the rules will be able to sign up for the 1st phase.

*Possible single event if needed to fill up the semifinals.

2nd phase: semifinals, 2 groups of 5 players. 3 5ers and 4 4ers for each player 5 best multiplayers there is. The semifinals will be played as a single event!

*Last chance for final as a single event


3rd phase: the finals - 3 5ers and 4 4ers for each player 5 best multiplayers there is. The finals will be played as a one single event!

Tournament system may face some slight changes, after we know exact number of players participating.
Tournament will be played by using USA map only.
Tournament will be played under modified basic rules, known from other tournaments like NC, FED and League.
Tournament director is Qorlas and other supporters that will be indicated.

Deadline for signing in is 30th October 2012. When signing in, please state also your preferred time of play from options - CET evening / USA evening / Any time.


------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------

GENERAL RULES

1.) Nature of games

Games in the tournament will be 5 and 4 player multigames with USA map.

2.) Single players

Every player must play their own game by themselves. Teaming up between two or more players is forbidden.

It's of course allowed to chat with other players during the game, but is forbidden to give any advice to others.

If player X shouts and advices you to "draaaaaw!", it's not really an "advice", it's meant to be more like fun and therefore NOT against the rules. So you may still draw.

Instead if player A gives player B an advice to block player C, it's definitely against the rules.

3.) Blocking

Blocking is natural and essential part of the game. So it's NOT against the rules.

If player gets blocked by others even several times it doesn't necessarely mean that others have teamed up against him/her.

Blocking is really common during the last few rounds, so be aware.

4.) General behaving and netiquette

Tournament should be fun event for everybody, so please behave like people with good manners are expected and respect the basic netiquette.

It means that for example insulting other players and delaying game in purpose is both agaist the rules.

5.) Lost connection

If player loses connection during the game, he/she should try to get back as soon as possible.

Other players must delay the game for at least 5 minutes. If booted player doesn't come back, game must be cancelled and players have to arrange a re-match.

One move made by bot during being booted must be accepted, no matter how dump, unless all other players are willing to play a re-match.

6.) Actions against the rules

Any action against the rules must be reported to tournament directors. They make all the decisions according to knowledge they have, so if there is such cases, it helps if there is some proof or witnesses. All decisions made by tournament directors are final.

So TD = Tournament Director = Tournament Dictator


------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------

TOURNAMENT SYSTEM

1.) Tournament system

The final tournament system being used, will be published after sign in -deadline. Then also starting groups, schedules and seeding will be published. Probably on Monday 21st November.

2.) Seeding

Seeding will be based on players TELO ranking for Multi USA and preferred time zone. Players without TELO ranking will be placed in the groups randomly.

3.) Splitting in groups

Players will be splitted into starting groups by TD's.

There are two factors being used in the split - ELO ranking and preferred time of play.

4.) First phase

The first phase will see as many preliminary groups of 6 or 7 players as needed. The best players will gain access to the Semifinal phase.

Example of a group of 6:

5.) Semifinals

Details about how players reach semifinals will be posted at the start of tournament.

There will be 2 groups of 5 players that will be a single event similar to the one of the finals.

5B.) Last chance for final

3rd and 4th placed int he two semifinals will play a last chance for final. They will play 4 4p in a single event and the player with more points will advance to finals. The two players arrived 3rd in their semifinal groups will start with a bonus of 3.5 points.





6.) The finals

The finals will be played as one single event in February 2012. The date may be changed if all the finalists agree some other date. 5 best multiplayers will play following games in the finals:

game 1 5er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd - Eee

game 2 4er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd

game 3 4er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Eee

game 4 4er Aaa - Bbb - Ddd - Eee

game 5 4er Aaa - Ccc - Ddd - Eee

game 6 4er Bbb - Ccc - Ddd - Eee

game 7 5er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd - Eee

game 8 5er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd - Eee

So each finalists will play 3 5ers and 4 4ers. The player that collects more points will be The Multiplayer Champion.

7.) Points counting

In 5ers 9 - 5 - 3 - 1 - 0

In 4ers 7 - 4 - 2 - 0

If two or more players tie placement in game. They split the points. Example:

Game: Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd

Scores: 125 - 125 - 109 - 83

Points: 5,5 - 5,5 - 2 - 0

Both players Aaa and Bbb will be winners and gain also one win in their record.

8.) Group table placements

If two or more players have same amount of points in the final group table.

a) player with more wins in total will be ranked higher.

b) player with more wins in 5ers will be ranked higher.

c) player with lower seeding will be ranked higher.


9.) How to schedule games

In scheduling evenings: people has to give their ok explicitly with a post in the forum telling that they will play in the evening for which they agreed to play. No PMs to TDs only forum posts count as "OKs";
If someone doesn't show up for games for which he agreed before: games are played with bot.
If a player cannot play a scheduled evening: he can post his "not possibility"; in the forum until 4 hours before the scheduled time. In that case his games will be played another time

If players don't put a post in the forum and they do not show up
games has to be delayed
BUT
at the end of the phase missing games will be scheduled by TD
and their availibilities will be the ones less considered

Games played with the bot cannot be recovered at all. In the first part of the phases there should be at least 3 human players in all games.

*Delayed Games:
if a player arrives in delay for a evening and his game has been already played. The game has to be recovered immediately if he has less than 1 hour of delay, otherwise game can be recovered only if all the other players agree, but the game has to be played the same evening. In case of a missing player for a scheduled evening: games not involving the missing players have to be played first. Bot games can be played only if all-human matches are no longer possible

1st phase will have one deadline. After the deadline TDs will try to set dates and times of play for each of the remaining games in the following week (extension for remaining games is one week).
The TD will ask for all the players to give 3 possible time slots for their games of at least "40 minutes x each game missing";. He will choose the scheduled time for the game according to the info he has.

*In the first phase "no show" gets 0 point, bot placement doesn't count.
If a player has unplayed games and he/she doesn't show up in the event that TD's have set (final deadline) then "no show" gets -1 points. Other players finish their remaining games and "no show" are being replaced by bot, whose placement will not count.

*Bot placement counts only for the points given to other players. If the bot wins he will steal points from the other players but will not give points to "his player".


10.) Games ruled off

Games not played in any form after the final deadlines will be ruled by the TDs.

11.) Games open/closed

In the first round games can be closed if the player with highest ranking involved wished so. In the finals games have to be open.

12.) Starting

Starting is random in every game of the tournament. So it doesn't make any difference who opens the games.

13.) Scheduling

Players are encouraged to contact each other to arrange evenings where they will play the possible games until the first deadline of the phases. In the period after the deadline the TDs will help the players in arranging the remaining games.


------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------



SIGNING IN

Players with more than 1000 overall games played may join the tournament.
Other players can join the tournament only after TD explicit agreement to be asked in this thread.

TD's may decline players whose reputation is not good enough, if they feel player may cause some problems during the tournament.
(Examples: they gave troubles to TD of previous tournaments, or they were hard to offer schedule in previous Multi competitions)

When signing in, please state also your preferred time of play from options - CET evening / USA evening / Any time. If possible choose Any time, because then TD's don't have to put any player in USA evening group against their will, hopefully.

Deadline Wednesday 30th October 2013, 23:59 CET.

If you think you can play the games in two week between 15th and start of December, then for me it is ok.

I'm in of course, but I think that final during Christmas holidays can be hard to schedule (i.e. IF I'm in final I will probably be without connexion from 21st to 28th December)

I hope to play the finals before Christmas time. In any case there wouldn't be any trouble to play them after Christmas Holidays Wink

No worries! I am not going to be strict on the finals deadline Smile

I know most of your preferences, but please please specify if you prefer Euro evenings or USA evenings for the first phase or if you can manage both of them. It will help me in the formation of the groups.

17 players only...

For the first time, I wanted to try this Multi Tournament, but I decided to not because of dates.

Of course, my name wouldn't do a big difference, it's only a personal argument, but maybe I'm not the only one ?

With 12 to 8 teams still involved in NC until end of november (that means 50 to 60 reguler top players maybe ?), it's very hard to manage everything at the same time. At least for me Wink

Last year, MPWC started around one month later... I didn't check why and don't have all informations (too much trouble with Christmas zone ?, pressure from the usual 5 or 6 greedy players that play ALL tournaments and wanted more ?, other... ?), but maybe it's why there aren't so many registrations for the moment.

Anyway, if the director wants to delay from 3 or 4 weeks, I'd give it a try Very Happy ... maybe others ?

I can increase the time for the first phase of a couple of weeks considering that the semifinal phase will be single event.

People wishing to play with the deadlines for the first phase extended of 2 weeks, please post in this thread as soon as possible.

I wish to have as many players as possible.

(and I will play if 1 player more is needed)

OUT *sorry*

I'd love to participate, but I'm sure now I'm not able to schedule my games.

My best times are 3-8pm CET and I'm afraid this will not help to schedule many games Sad
