Are you ready to participate in a tournament that will decide which is the Conquer Club city of the year?Tournament Layout
This tournament will consist of 32 teams, each representing a city or set of cities. The cities have been carefully chosen based on the location of Conquer Club players (for example, there are many teams in the US, UK, and Canada because that is where a large amount of Conquer Club players are located). Each team will consist of 4 players (and could have reserves / subs in case a player on your team is on vacation for example).
The map for this tournament will be World 2.1. There will be 5 rounds - Group Stage, Round of 16, Round of 8, Semi-finals, and Finals.
Below are the settings for each stage.
Group Stage: Quad, Automatic, Sequential, Flat Rate, Chained, 20 Rounds Limit
Round of 16: Quad, Automatic, Sequential, No Spoils, Parachute, 20 Rounds Limit
Round of 8: Quad, Automatic, Sequential, No Spoils, Chained, 20 Rounds Limit
Semi-finals and Finals: Quad, Automatic, Sequential, No Spoils, Adjacent, 20 Rounds LimitNo outside help and/or intervention is allowed.
In each round, you will play each opposing team in 3 games. In case of a score tie in the knockout stages (Round of 16 and beyond), both teams will play 2 more games to determine which team will move forward.Scoring
Each win (excluding win by round limit) gives you a score of 4. However, for each player on your team that was eliminated before the win, you lose one point (-1). For example, if your team won with two players at the end, your team will only get 2 points. If the game ends by round limit and the winning team has more players left, the winning team will score based on the difference in players before the round limit. For example, if the winning team has three players and the losing team has two players, the winning team will get 1 point. However, if the player count is a tie or if the losing team has more players (but less troops, therefore, they still lost), then neither team gets any points (it will be a tie game of 0:0).
If you have any questions about the scoring, please ask in this thread. I understand it may be confusing.Tournament Guidelines
We would like participating players to have the following:
1) A score of at least 1,500 - this is to prevent against huge score differences between players
2) Some experience playing team games
3) Premium membership - this is to prevent against players potentially not being able to join games
Exceptions could be made for all these; please PM me if you do not meet the guidelines above but would still like to participate. You may also sign up for others if you have a team in mind already.Teams
Teams will be organized into Pots based on their geographical location. Each Group will be allocated a team from each Pot, making a total of eight Groups (Groups A through H). Players may join the city or set of cities of his/her choice; however, it is strongly recommended that you pick the team closest to you. For example, if you are in Australia, you should pick Sydney - Melbourne - Auckland rather than a team in the US.Team ListPot 1: Eastern United States
