3rd phase: the finals - 5 players- 8 games 3 5ers and 5 4ers in total. 4 4ers and 3 5ers for each player

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

Deadline for signing in is 31th March 2015. 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 EUROPE 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 02st April.

2.) Seeding

Seeding for first stage of the qualifying round will be based on players TELO ranking for Multi EUROPE 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 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

Example of a group of 5:

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

Players arriving 1st in the groups get 10 points, 2nd 7 points, 3rd 4 points, 4th 2 points, 5th 0 points. In case of ties the ponts are divided.
Tie-breakers are in order: number of stages won, number of games won, Comparison of relative placement in the 5 games involving both players, TELO ranking at the start of tournament.
*Stage 2:
Players are divided in groups again according to their placement in the first stage.
Example for 6 groups (25 players) (A,B,C,D,E,):
Group: A1,B2,C3,D4,E5
Group: B1,C2,D3,E4,A5
Group: C1,D2,E3,A4,B5
Group: D1,E2,A3,B4,C5
Group: E1,A2,B3,C4,D5

Same format and again players get again points according to their placement. Points are summed with those of first stage.

*Stage 3:
Players are divided in groups according to a snake format from their placement in the ranking after the first two stages.
Another time groups of 5 and again the same format.

Top 15 players progrees to the semifinals.
Tie-breakers are in order: number of stages won, number of games won, sum of the ponits obtained in the various groups, TELO ranking at the start of tournament


5.) Semifinals
All players start again from zero points!

In case of 25 or more players:

1st part: 3 groups of 5 players. 2 5ers and 4 4ers for each player. Groups realized through a snake format starting from the results of first phase.


Group A: 1-6-7-12-13
Group B: 2-5-8-11-14
Group C: 3-4-9-10-15

2nd part: 3 groups of 5 players. 2 5ers and 4 4ers for each player. Groups realized through the following scheme form the results of first part:
Group 1: A1.B2.C3.A4.B5.
Group 2: B1,C2,A3.B4.C5
Group 3: C1,A2,B3,C4,A5.

Tie-breakers are in order: number of stages won in semifinal, number of games won in semifinal, sum of the ponits obtained in the various groups in semifinal, ranking after qualifying round

6.) The finals

The finals will be played as one events at the end of May 2015. The date may be changed if all the finalists agree some other date. All players start again from zero points! 5 best multiplayers will play following games in the finals:

GAMES:
game 1 5er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd - Eee
game 2 4er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd (first of game 1 rest)
game 3 4er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Eee (second of game 1 rest)
game 4 4er Aaa - Bbb - Ddd - Eee (third of game 1 rest)
game 5 4er Aaa - Ccc - Ddd - Eee (4th of game 1 rest)
game 6 4er Bbb - Ccc - Ddd - Eee (5th of game 1 rest)
game 7 5er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd - Eee
game 8 5er Aaa - Bbb - Ccc - Ddd - Eee

The player that collects more points will be The Multiplayer Champion. In case of a tie both players will be declared champions.

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.) 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)

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 EUROPE evening group against their will, hopefully.

Deadline 31th March 2015, 23:59 CET.

That solution would be fine if this was the only tournament going on.

The problem is, I already planned on Thursday for our groups games. I moved one fusion match to make room, and Monday might be the only day opponents can play fusion TAG match.

I will play Monday, but I do not want to hear any complaints from fusion players if my TAG match is delayed, otherwise I would have to stick to the Thursday date for multi Europe.

Typical, we get our lowest seed switched out who goes on to get 3 points... obviously not that familiar with Europe Multi, and our group gets someone who wins the group.

And have to switch around schedule to make it work, just makes the whole thing not fun. Thanks.

Yes, it seems that the tournament schedule is not the best this year. It was already tricky to start with but players chose to play a full Round Robin in Fusion. So, yes it's busy, sorry about that... We'll do better next year.

Thanks Drake (and his/her Fusion opp.) for arranging your schedule and thanks to anybody else who also adjusted to make this happen (ZiL for the TAG, Lexx for the TAG the following week, Balduvian and tempest0, and dandee for making it work).

I don't get this.

  • You got a lower seed back in your group.

  • Tempest0 was 1650-ish DoW ELO before finishing last in 5 of 6 multis in the tournament, Balduvian is 1634 after winning your group.
  • Tempest0 has played 100 multi euros before the tournament, Balduvian around 60 with similar opponents.
  • Nobody blocked Balduvian out of Palermo in the last game when he had 4 tickets. I know you were busy with Cad Stock, Ath Wilno and 3 stations.
  • I don't think tempest0 was playing like a newbie. He just happened to be in a group with Lexx, 335d, lirex and me.

    If we had let one group play with 4 players, then someone would have complained that those players would have gained an advantadge. If Megasiv had replaced me, someone would have complained that a #1 seed was replaced by a number #4/5 seed.
    Switching Balduvian with tempest0 seemed like the best option by dandee at the time.

    I will play Monday, but I do not want to hear any complaints

    I just thought it was funny Smile

    Anyway, there are 2 more rounds to play!

    I don't get this.


    It could very well be that our group just sucked, and Tempest would have won our group. But seeing how he got only 3 points, made it feel like a bait and switch, and thus not very fun feeling at end of the round - mixed with all my crappy tickets didn't help.

    Obviously not on purpose, but this combined with some of the grouping for Asia and Swiss makes me think TELO isn't a good way to seed players if they are mixed with players who don't have an established TELO.

    Yes seeding in Asia was not very good...

    If we use 2er overall TELO, then specialists are underrated.
    If we use DoW Elo, then multi screw the rankings in Europe.

    Maybe weighted seeding for AMC/SMC/Multi Euro would compensate the flaws of the different seedings: 2er overall Telo + specific TELO (and why not) + perceived rankings for small turnouts but I don't know.

    For multis, the luck of the day just plays too big of a factor to find something that would work or just make sense. And the different rounds do not give as much importance to the original seeding as before.
