Sorry about not being around the past week. It was a bad time for my internet to die. Anyway, I want to set everything in stone now. Anyway, here is a draft of the rules.Rules
0) Tournament will be run on the latest 137, whatever it may be. Only bug fix versions from here.
1) Teams. Teams submitted must follow the rules stated here: http://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=6179.0
and will be sent to FFMaster. No edits are allowed to be made after the deadline, but changes before the deadline are allowed.
2) Matches. Best two out of three advances into the next round. Initial bracket placement will be randomized(I actually want to seed a few people, up for debate). The first map will be chosen from a list of SMALL MAPS
. The second map will be chosen from a list of LARGE MAPS
. The final map will be chosen from a list of MEDIUM MAPS
. (Rule still up for debate, especially what defines as a small/medium/large map. We need to set up a time where we can discuss on IRC, or just post here).
3) Elimination. The tournament will be double elimination. This means that for your first Match loss, you will be placed in the losers bracket. After losing in the losers bracket, you will be eliminated from the tournament. For the finals, the winner from the Winners Bracket and the winner from the Losers Bracket will play. The winner in that final game will be deemed Champion(up for debate, some groups like Team Spooky allow for a bracket reset when the losers bracket player wins, which means they play one final game to determine the champion. Once again, come on IRC or post here to discuss)
Rule 4) THE COLOUR PALETTE PURPLE (05) IS BANNED DUE TO BUGS. Wow, that sounds so stupid when I read it.
