The series will go to number 32. After 32 we will have a Grand Finale tournament. Rules about exactly how we will handle duplicate qualifications and/or vanished members will be published later.
In the meantime, I am dressing up these last 16 tourneys with some GA medals, maybe some other prizes, maybe some other special features. PM me if you have a cool idea for GA medals and/or special features that could be incorporated in this series without destroying the basic simplicity of it.
For this one, I am applying for a GA medal for the winner of a "Bronze medal" game between the two losing players in the Semi-Finals.
Map: Baltic Crusades
Settings: Auto Seq No Spoils Chained Foggy Trench No Round Limit Warning to all the silly trench-haters: this is a trench tournament!
Tournament Flow: 32-player 1v1 elimination bracket. Bracket-randomization feature at Challonge.com will be used in setup. 1 game per round for first four rounds, followed by a best-of-three Final. Freemiums are allowed, but are required to reserve one spot for this tourney, and will default if they fail to do so. If a freemium makes it to the final, we can play 1 game at a time.
