Hello everyone! This will be a TEAM ASSASSIN tournament for 16 triples teams featuring a best of three set played on natty_dread's Age of Steam maps (Orient Express 1883 and Transsib 1914) plus Oaktown's Indian Empire map (I needed a third map and there are steam engines in India). What is TEAM ASSASSIN you ask? It's a type of game in which one team wins (for the purposes of our tournament) by eliminating a predetermined target on the other team. In other words it's an assassin game played by two trips teams. Regardless of which team actually wins the game in question, the team who eliminated their target first in at least two out of three games played will advance in this tournament. There will be a minimum points requirement for this tournament. Teams should have a minimum total of 6000 points between them to participate. Premiums only as several games will be played at once. Teams will be seeded according to total points at the time the games are sent out. Each member of each team will be a target in one of the games, but nobody will know who is targeted--you'll have to figure that out just like in a regular assassin game. Games on all three maps will be auto/sequential/chained and sunny, but the spoils will be different on each one. Orient Express 1883 will be flat rate, Transsib 1914 will be nuclear, and Indian Empire will be escalating.
