Ok so first of all, this is going to be my biggest and most complicated tourney to date..
I am looking for teams with a combine score of 4k+ (If there is a low number of entrants after 2 weeks I might lower it, but I will send a pm asking for the okay from the teams allready signed up). Only premiums because of the game load (I will send the games out in either 3 batches of 4 games, or 2 batches with 6)
I realy love conquer type maps, and I love 4-team dubs. I have a list of 12 maps (see the list further down). In round 1 I will use random.org to make groups of 4 teams each, and they will play one 4 team dubs on each of the 12 maps, and the 2 best teams will advance to the next round (I might change the advance structure depending on the number of signups, but it will be atleast 2 teams that advances). In the next rounds, I will seed the teams on how they did the preivous round (so if there is 8 teams left, then the groups would be : Seed 1,4,5,8 and 2,3,6,7) The scoring will be 5 points for the win, and 1 point for 2.place (I made 2.place only 1 because of maps like antartica where 2.place could just as easly been 4.) The points do not carry over. But here comes the twist, when signing up I want each team to pick 2 "home maps", ranking them 1. and 2., and they will be rewarded with triple poins on 1. and double on 2.
EDIT : So I got 20 teams, so this is how the structure will be. Round 1 : 5 groups of 4 teams, the worst 4 teams is out of the tourney (but max 1 team from each group, so there will not be 2 teams out from 1 group even if they both score 0 points). Round 2 : 4 groups of 4 teams, the 2 best teams from each group advances to round 3. Round 3 : 2 groups of 4 teams, the 2 best teams from each group advances to the finale.

Just to clearify, this means the first team that wins on each of the 12 maps.. and if this does not happend, the team that wins on most of them.. I will get back with the tiebreaker rule for the GA medal later..
The settings on all maps will be : Play Order - Sequential Troop Deployment - Automatic Spoils - Escalating Reinforcements - Chained Special Gameplay - Fog, no trench Round limit : 20
