This is a Tournament Players Association (TPA) event, and is governed by its rules, guidelines, and judgments. All are welcome to join and participate in the association. You need do nothing more than join one or more of the TPA events that will be announced each Monday. Check back on the TPA scoreboard in the Tournaments--> General Info forum to see how you're doing.
[edit-dr] This tournament is a league style triples tournament. We will be using a 6 round Swiss Bracket and you will not play a team more than once in the swiss bracket. Teams score points for winning games and sets. Each team will need to choose two home maps to use and there will be no tiebreaker. Each team will just get points. Each round will be played as the previous round finishes. I would like to get 30 teams signed up for this as it is a TPA event and I'm leaving lots of room.
show: GAMES and POINTS
Each round consists of 4 triples games. 2 home games for each team. Settings will vary based on teams choices but all games must be automatic and sequential.
Points will be scored in the following manner. 1.2 Point for a set win. .7 Points for a set tie .5 Points for each game won 0 points for a set/game loss. In the unlikely event that a game goes over 20 rounds, in an effort to keep the tournament moving it will be declared a tie and both teams receive .3 points for that game.
show: TEAMS and PLAYERS
The teams consist of 3 players. There are no score requirements to join but all must be premium members. If a freemium member truly wishes to join then they must commit to keeping all 4 slots open for the entire tournament. They must send me a pm with their commitment to this and I will keep it saved for the duration of the tournament. If I don't feel that you can keep up this commitment I reserve the right to deny your entry. None of the previous applies to the premium members. You also have the option to replace a player 1 time during the course of the tournament. Only 1 substitution is allowed so be sure everyone knows the commitment. My estimate on time would be from 3 months to 6 months.
2.- To sign up as a team, you need to provide me with a team name, team Captain and the other team members. Please include the current score of all the team members(Used only for initial seeding). Please use this format: Code: Select all
Player A: [Player]name[/Player] - Score (Team Captain) Player B: [Player]name[/Player] - Score Player C: [Player]name[/Player] - Score Total Score - 3. I will also need your two home maps. Those can be submitted later but if you do please make a new post. Quoting your original is ideal so it's easiest to see the team that goes with it. Please use this format: Code: Select all
Spoils: Forts: Fog: Map 2: Spoils: Forts: Fog: 4.- If you're an individual and don't have a team set up don't fret. You can still join in the tournament. Priority will be given to fully formed teams but you will be placed on a list of single players and I will either put you with other single players when there are at least 3 on the list or other teams could choose to pick you up if they aren't full. To sign up as an individual player you just need to sign up using this format: Code: Select all

Single Player: [Player]name[/Player] - Score 5.- The Captain needs to advise me if the substitution needs to be made for your team, you cannot let a player sign up for games if he or she is not registered with your team. 6.- I reserve the right to deny your teams entry into the tournament if the proper information is not provided upon sign up. Also if you do not provide the scores like I asked, you will either be denied entry or you will not be seeded so you will receive a bottom seed and have to play one of the top seeds from the start. I will NOT look up your scores if they are not provided at the time of sign up.
show: JOINING GAMES and RESULTS
1.- Once the games for a round are made I send a pm with the game numbers and password(s) to the Captain only. It is his/her responsibility to distribute them to all his/her teammates. If a game is not joined by all players within 48 hours, I reserve the right to cancel the game and count it as a lost game for the team(s) that did not join it. At the very least I will deduct at most .5 points from the teams score and give them an additional 24 hours if no prior arrangements are made. If there is still no attempt at contact within 72 hours there will be no excuses at all, the game will be deleted and the team will receive -.5 for each game I had to delete. If a team had a prior offense in the tournament then they will not get the additional 24 hours grace period and will instead receive -1 points for each game deleted. I usually send an invite as a reminder sometime after 24 hours. If 48 hours will not be enough time then I ask that the team Captain sends me a pm letting me know and exceptions may or may not be made.
2.- When the series is won, posting the results in the forum will help to speed up the tournament. If not it will get checked eventually when I go through the games every few days. To keep things moving as quickly and smoothly as possible, please help me to help you by either posting in this forum or sending me a pm. The winning team's Captain should take care of this, but anyone can.

The team Captains have the following responsibilities:
1.- Sign up your team with the players and, of course, name the Captain. 2.- If a substitution needs to be made, inform me.. 3.- Invite your team members to the games. 4.- Ensure that your team members sign up within the time limit. 5.- Help me out by notifying me of the results of the games a.s.a.p. 6.- In general, ensure that there will be as little delay as possible during this tournament.
