Weekly Cup #8 - Lucky Break
We're pretty excited to announce another DTO Tournament! After last weeks open tournament on Unity 5, we're changing things up with a new time. Don't forget, anyone can participate!
This week, we're testing out a no-signup cup, where absolutely anyone from the DTO community can jump into the tournament - you don't have to worry about signing up this week, just turn up!
When is the tournament?
This tournament will be held at 10am Perth time (GMT+8) this Saturday, the 9th of May, players should be ready 15 minutes before the allocated start time. Check http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20150509T10&p0=196&msg=Down+To+One+Cup+ for a countdown clock.
What format will this tournament be played in?
-All DTO weekly tournaments will be played in a double elimination bracket (so, you can 'lose' one game, but won't be immediately knocked out of the tournament).
-Any solo player can sign up & play in this tournament - no teams are allowed.
-The amount of players signed up will determine the amount of players in each round.
-Each round will have a minimum of 5 players in it, and a maximum of 10.
-The top X players (usually 2, but dependant on round size & upper or lower bracket match) in a round will proceed in their bracket, with the rest of the players in that round being awarded a loss, and either moving to the losers bracket, or, if they're already in the losers bracket, being knocked out of the tournament.
What are the rules for this tournament?
Our full competitive ruleset can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1h1i_JYd2_HBMj3KPeBlH14r5qVQLWnNFeO3EocswpVo/edit?usp=sharing - the main things to remember are: no teams, no intentional exploitation of known bugs, and of course, no cheating. As we are still experimenting with various rules whilst in an early stage of development, some changes will probably be made to these rules throughout development.
