MULTI EUROPE MAP CHAMPIONSHIP 2017 - Registration IS OPEN! Wed, 06 September 2017 20:07
Let's play now! Registration is open until 19th of September. 20th of Semptember groups will be published.
Please, add platform info in registration (Steam/Web/Both) and time to play (EU evening, US evening).

Dandee is busy, so I'll be TD of MEMC, because this is my favourite tornament!

Rules
BRIEF

Tournament will be played during September and October will be 2 phases in the tournament:

1^ phase: semifinals,

In case of 20 or less players
1st part: 2 groups of 5 players. 2 5ers and 4 4ers for each player. Groups realized through a multi europe telo and platforms.
For new entry in Memc. Multi Elo + Europe Elo and Platform.

2nd part: 2 groups of 5 players. 2 5ers and 4 4ers for each player. Groups realized through the following scheme form the results of first part:


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 Docent and other supporters that will be indicated.

Deadline for signing in is 19th September 2017.


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

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 20th of September.

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) Semifinal

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. same points for both groups of semifinal.


2nd part: 4 groups of 5 players. 2 5ers and 4 4ers for each player. Groups realized through the following the RANK form the results of first part:

Group 1: 1/8/9/16/17.
Group 2: 2/7/10/15/18.
Group 3: 3/6/11/14/19
Group 4: 4/5/12/13/20

ATTENTION: groups suffer changes depending on the platform


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
Could be additional round.

6.) The final

The finals will be played as one events at the end of October 2017. 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
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

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 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)
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.

(Examples: they gave troubles to TD of previous tournaments, or they were hard to offer schedule in previous Multi competitions)

proably most would be able to play around 20:00-21:00 CEST.
Not a good time for me, but it's getting harder and harder to find good players that respect the game's netiquette.

So I'm in and hopefully we'll find a fit time.

Unfortunately I don't have time to participate in organization; it seems that the only way to revive this community would be to directly propose to competitive and respectful players we find in steam to join.

I have used MULTI EURO TELO after MEMC 2015 (MEMC 2016 wasn't calculated, but Truckerteller as last winner got #1). And we have two unrated players. 3 players have problems and if they want to play and find one more guy then let's do 3rd group Smile But now for two groups only:

Truckerteller
3 cannonade 1678
5 RUS Sivorro 1664
6 RUS Docent CMEPTb 1659
30 BTB lirex 1590
36 Photios 1578
37 GSV3 1576
46 onyx puffin LOL 1542
Olimpionik ?
VojFromMars ?

Group A:
Truckerteller
RUS Sivorro
BTB lirex
GSV3
Olimpionik

Group B:
cannonade
RUS Docent CMEPTb
Photios
onyx puffin LOL
VojFromMars

First stage. Two rounds. This group and one time more. Top5 promouts to the Final. But if we got some problems for top5 (a lot of guys with same points), could be one additional Semifinal.

Good luck!
