The infinite tournament with avatar & money rewards

TA4Life hosted WWPC back in the days and it slowly died. LEXTOC and Morax are restoring this tournament to it's former glory. There's a wall of text you'll have to read to understand how it works, but read it once and you'll have a good understanding of it. Trust us, it's worth it!

Other infinite tournaments:

Description

  • This is a non-stop tournament with 4 divisions, which are the following:
  1. O1900 (over 1900 ladder rating)
  2. U1900 (under 1900 ladder rating)
  3. U1500 (under 1500 ladder rating)
  4. U1100 (under 1100 ladder rating)

How does this work?

  • There is always a champion for each division who will have to defend his title each round (which lasts 2 weeks).
  • Everyone can sign up to challenge the champion of his division.
    • However, if there is more than one challenger, they will be having a little knockout (best of 1) tournament between them hosted by the TD.
    • The TD will give the maps the challengers have to play against eachother.

Rules

  • Wednesday: knockouts will be posted.
  • First week: knockouts get played.
  • Second week: champions BO5's get played.
    • Sometimes it happens people with different timezones can't match up before the given deadline. When this happens contact the TD.

Rating Limit

  • There is a tolerance of a 100 rating points, however this only counts for people who want to be placed in a higher division, example:
    • A player with 1425 rating has the option to join U1500, or U1900. A player with 1550 rating however is not allowed to join U1500, he must join U1900.

Final BO5

  • The challenger who won the knockout tournament (if there was one) will get to play a BO5 (best of 5) against the Champion. The maps will be chosen like this:
  1. This map gets chosen by the challenger
  2. This map gets chosen by the current champion
  3. This map gets chosen by the current champion
  4. This map gets chosen by the challenger
  5. This map gets chosen by the current champion
  • (if draw, challanger choose next map)
  • You may not play a map in the BO5 for the champions title more than once.
  • If the end result of the BO5 is a draw the challengers will get to choose a map.
  • If one of the teams won before the BO5 is finished, they may finish it if both teams want to, but this isn't necessary.

Important

  • You may only sign up for one division! Note that champions are allowed to sign up for one division as well, even while being champion of one.
  • The winner posts his replays ID's in this topic (you can get the replay ID by opening the local replay in file explorer, the number in the replay's name is the ID)
  • Always leave via the score screen to make sure the replays don't get corrupted.
  • The TD's can always change the rules.
  • The TD's are nice people. If you think something in here is absurd, just post it here.
  • Game settings are the same as the ones in Ladder.
  • There are certain mods which the TD will allow if both players agree.
  • A disconnect has to be discussed with the TD if both players don't agree to play the game again.
