AAT 2013 (All-Around Tournament 2013) Sun, 26 May 2013 11:21
Hi all!

It is time for the all-around tournament fifth (and last) edition.

Changes of the rules are in bold.

A) Registration ends 5/06/2013

B) Tournament starts 6/06/2013

Schedule of the tournament:

Round Robin: 6.6-7.07
Knockout : starting 8.07 one week for any round needed

C) Tournament Structure:
* First phase with small groups (Groups will have max of 6 players, but best option will be 5 players)
* Knockout Phase (number of players passing to the KO phase will be decided by the TD at the start of the tournament according to the number of groups)

D) Match Structure:

*Best of 6 series
*We will use all the maps: USA, Europe, Swiss, 1910, Big Cities and Mega, Asia, One map will be excluded in each clash
*IN RR:First game, the higher ranked player will choose the map and he will start. In the second game this will be done by the lower ranked and going on alternatively.
-In all the rounds players that were 1st placed in the groups will gain the "higher ranked privilege" regarding the starts over players worse placed.
1st place gains over 2nd and 3rd place
2nd place gains over 3rd place
-In case of a match between players that reached the same group position in round robin, the "higher ranked" will go to the player that had the higher point average in group phase.

*The ranking of the players will be the one that will be used to make the groups at the start of the tournament.

E) The Round Robin games can be played at any order
*In the round robin all the games will be played.
*In the knock-out the games will be played only up to the point needed to declare a winner.
*Ties count and will be considered like half point for both players.
*In the case of a tie after the six games in the knock-out: Game 7 will be played with map chosen by higher ranked player and lower ranked player will go first. Choosing and starting alternates till a player wins by 2. Cannot chose the same map till all maps have been played an equal number of times. In game 7 you can choose the map between all the maps, then you have to play all the maps if you reach game 13

*In the knock-out phase there will be a week to play each round (deadlines will be declared each time)
* Points in the groups: all games count. League rules apply: 1 point for each game win (0.5 for ties) and 2 point for a series win (1 for a tied series).
* Tie-Breaker in Round Robin: 1. points won, 2. matches won, 3. direct match, 4. games won. 5. initial ranking

F) Games should be played open in the knock-out rounds. Choice of the players in the round robins.

G) Seeding and ranking will be made through 2-players ELO as taken by TD at the start of the tournament in the groups formation.

H) There will be one TD.

I) I would like to play it . I can do the TD too if noone of you disagree in this, otherwise I will search another TD or as last choice I will not play.

J) This tournament is thought as a fun competition to be done during the summer, so I take the right to reject players that are suspicious of cheating or do not meet basic netiquette.

K) To sign up for this tournament, please reply in this thread.

L) This will be the last AAT tournament! Next time we will have AAT league where the divisions will be formed according to the placement in this competition! Top 6 players can expect to be included in Division A.
