This is a Tournament Players Association Year 2(TPA2) 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 TPA2 events that will be announced each Monday. Check back on the TPA2 scoreboard in the Tournaments--> General Info forumto see how you're doing.
This event will be a double elimination tournament for 64 players.
Freemiums are welcome but need to keep 2 slots open for this tournament, due to number of games to be played. You must also have completed at least 50 games.
To join, simply reply in the thread that you want in. I will reply in thread when I sign you up. This will also be a seeded tournament, similar to an NCAA basketball tournament bracket.
It is appreciated that you enter your CC score when signing up, but if you do not, I will find and I will record individual player scores when I sign them up. As I record all the individual scores, the seeding will be as follows:
The highest 4 scores will be #1 seeds The next highest 4 will be #2 seeds and so on, until the lowest 4 scores are #16 seeds.
(In the unlikely event that players are tied with the same score resulting in more than 4 of the same seed, the higher seed will go to the player with a higher overall win percentage)
Players will be broken up into 4 "separate" 16 player brackets in order to determine the 64 man field. The 16 player matchups will be assigned with one of each seed. I will then place them in a seeded 1-16 bracket 4 times in a 64 man field. Bracket will be available for viewing when tourney is full and seedings are assigned.
Game play will be as follows: Players will play in 1 vs. 1 games Each round is best 2 of 3 games (Sent 2 at a time, with a third if necessary) Tourney Final will be best of 5 (1st 2 sent, then additional games to follow)
All regular game settings are as follows: Map: Doodle Earth Standard Escalating Chained Sunny Casual
