Deadline for signing in is 20th November 2014. When signing in, please state also your preferred time of play from options - CET evening / USA evening / Any time/weekend/weekdays.


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

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 21st November.

2.) Seeding

Seeding for first stage of the qualifying round will be based on players TELO ranking for Multi USA and on 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 in the first stage of first phase- TELO ranking and preferred time of play.

4.) Qualifying round

The qualifying round will be divided in 3 stages. The best 15 (or 10) players will gain access to the Semifinal phase.

*Stage 1: there will be as many preliminary groups of 5 players as needed. Players are going to be divided in groups according to TELO and/or time constraints

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.) How to schedule games

In scheduling evenings, most rounds will be single events: 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".
Players have 72 hours to post their availabilities and/or schedule the events: after 72 hours from the publication of the groups the TD will schedule them ia a "good time" according to the data he has from the posting of the players
;


If you don't try to schedule and don't post it in the forum.... you will likely find a date not fine with your wishes


What is a "good time"? For qualifying stage 1 the „good times“ are whatever was asked buy players in registration and indicated by TD. For all other stages in qualifying round and semifinal "good times“ are weekdays 18:00-24:00 CET + weekends 14:00 -24:00


In case of a player missing a scheduled event: he will be placed last in the group. Players will play 6 4p games and complete the ranking with this alternative format.
In case of two players missing: they will be both placed at the bottom of group ranking. Remaining players will play 6 3p games to complete the group.

*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.
Qualifying phase and semifinal will have one deadline for each stage.




9.) Games ruled off

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

10.) 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.

11.) Starting

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

12.) Scheduling

Players are encouraged to contact each other to arrange evenings where they will play the possible games but they need to schedule one event where to play all the games of a 5 player group. 1st round different stages and semifinals have to be all played as single events..


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



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)

I remind that only stage 1 of qualifying rouns will be protected regarding time preferred.

From stage 2 onwards you will be mixed so you will need to find a compromise for the single events schedule.

It is meant to recude the single-event length. With the amount of Russian and Ukrainian players 1 or 2 hours ahead, we needed to make things easier for everybody and avoid problems in a tight schedule.
