Conquer International 2020 - Tracking Thread

Welcome to Conqueror International 2020! Based on the Esports tournament for DotA 2, this will be an exciting, prize filled series! Premium is technically not required for any qualifying tournament; however, it will be mandatory for the final tournament, and as such, this will be a premium only event.

Background
show


General game joining/deadbeat policy:
show


Signing up
show


This series of tournaments will start with 9 qualifying tournaments (called Minor's) that lead up to the main event (Major). Each Minor will be a competition between 8 doubles teams in a bracket with predetermined rules (Standard, Sequential, Automatic, Escalating, Chained, Foggy, No Trench), best of 3. The top 2 teams will qualify for the Major! "But wait, why do I care if I get 1st or 2nd, if I qualify no matter what durr?!" Well Jimmy, other than not losing 2-3 games and earning a tournament medal for the qualifier, each team that takes 1st in a Minor will receive 3 months of Conquer Club Premium each, while 2nd place shall only receive 1 month each.

Because we want 18 unique teams at the end of this series of minors, no member of a team who achieves either 1st or 2nd place in a tournament will be allowed to attend any of the others.

The maps used for the minors will be Africa, Canada, Europe, Central America, Japan, North America, Australia, South America and New Zealand.

Once all 9 tournaments have been decided and we have our 18 teams for the Major, we will begin by splitting the teams into 2 groups of 9 for a Group Stage round. Each team will choose their own maps (no Beta maps) and settings for this round (map selection may be changed for Bracket round), and play a round robin of 2 games against each member of their group (one of each teams map/settings). Each win shall give a team 1 point; at the end of the round robins, two teams will be eliminated, determined by whoever has the lowest score in each group. These points will also be used to determine seeding for Bracket Play!

Bracket play will begin with 2 brackets, with slightly different paths to the grand finals! Teams with seedings 1-8 shall advance to the upper bracket (UB), while teams 9-16 shall advance to the lower bracket (LB).

UB will play 3 rounds of best of 3's to advance to the grand finals; higher seeding will have 2 games with their map/settings, while lower seed will have only 1. Each time a team loses in UB, they are dropped into the LB.

LB is more complicated, teams that lose in the lower bracket are eliminated from the tournament. LB shall start with a sudden death round, playing a best of 1 to see who advances, with higher seed getting to choose the map/settings. Round 2 shall begin the entry of the UB teams that were eliminated. Example:
show


Teams from UB will continue to be added to face teams that advance in the LB. All in all, LB will have a total of 5 best of 3 rounds, with the winner of LB advancing to face the winner of UB in the Grand Finals in a best of 5. Each of the top 3 teams will receive prizes (TBD), and the team that walks away with the victory will receive a GA medal (confirmed by Benga?).

Round Robin Tiebreakers wrote:After the Round Robin concludes, tiebreakers will be as follows:
*Team that has more Away wins
*Less rounds to win/faster wins
*Which team qualified earlier in the Minor series

Does that mean that you'll wait until each tournament is completely over before opening the signups for the next one so no previous winner can join? It might take a while

It may, which is unfortunate; hopefully the idea of premium level prizes draws teams fast so we can get the ball rolling fast.

Also technically I only need to wait until the finals have begun, and with only 8 teams that's just 2 rounds completed.

A request was made, and I pondered it for awhile, but decided to move forward with CI Singles edition.

The 2nd post has been edited to include the tracking information for both tournaments; each tournament shall now have a (doubles) or (singles) tag. Because singles games are affected a lot more by luck (initial placement/turn start), these tournaments shall be best of 5.

The singles version of CI just wrapped up Europe, moving on to Central America qualifiers, while the doubles version will soon be starting up in Japan! Not a bad pace, and soon we'll be enjoying the main tournament and the months of premium (36 singles, 72 doubles) that I'll be able to hand out!

Congrats to Coninefan on being the only player to qualify doubles (Austrailia, 1st) and singles (South America, TBD).

Was hoping to do that myself first, but glad someone did it!

With things working out between CC and I, I thought I'd post how the prizes will end up breaking down:

After the Round Robin concludes, 2 teams will be eliminated, and 16 teams will remain for bracket play. Ranks 9-16 play in a BO1 matchup to advance; the 4 teams that fall there, will not be getting any premium from this tournament. With 12 remaining, here is how the prizes will breakdown.

1st place: 1 year
2nd place: 9 months
3rd & 4th place: 6 months
5th through 8th: 3 months
9th through 12th: 1 month

For CID, this will be per player.

Singles is still on the Austrailia tournament, but in the semi-finals, so probably in the finals in the next few days (which means South America can open recruitment at that time) and finished in a bit over a week would be my guess.

So I'm pretty fucking stupid, and Tin Trumpet actually did this first, in both Canada's (1st place each). My bad Conine, but still a good achievement.

CI Doubles Major has 1 game to go before round robin play wraps up, seedings are given out and bracket play begins.

CI Singles Minor - New Zealand enters the finals, and once players get me their map choices (or I get annoyed at sending too many messages and cut a few for non-response), then the Major begins!
