This thread will cover all of the relevant rules and registration information.  Please see below for all of the details.

The tournament began on 10/16/2010.  Please be aware that this tournament will not begin and end on 10/16/2010.  It will actually take several weeks to complete. 

Background 

In April 2010, we started our first community demigod tournament.  The tournament was 2v2 and certain demigod selections were restricted.  The tourney carried a crash prize donated by people in the community and was won by the two man team of zen_god and King_of_thorns.  For more details on that tourney, read up here: (http://forums.demigodthegame.com/380837). 

Tournament Format

  • The tournament will be played as a 3v3 round robin tournament.  Round robin simply means that there is no elimination outside of disqualification.  Your team will play each and every team.  
  • Each match in the tournament will consist of 3 total games. 
  • We will track every win and loss.  The team with the most wins is the winner of the round robin portion of our tournament.
  • After the round robin has concluded, the top 4 teams will battle it out elimination style in the best 2 out of 3 games. 

Tournament Rules

  • All matches will be played on cataract with default settings (the only exceptions being AI HP on Very High and AI Gold/XP on low). 
  • Each team will play 1 round on the light side, then 1 round on the dark side.  In the 3rd round, if each team has 1 win, the team that had the fastest win in game 1 or 2 gets to pick the side they want to be on.  If one team already has 2 wins, the team with no wins gets to pick the side they want to be on (keep in mind the following rule). 
  • The team that is on the dark side must pick their characters and ready up first.  Then the team on the light side gets to pick and the dark side does not have a chance to adjust their characters.
  • Players using oak may not use spirits to perform a citadel rush.  Any player doing this will have their entire team disqualified for that game giving a win to the opposing team. If you don't know what this terminology means, odds are you aren't citadel rushing with spirits. 
  • Players MUST form their own teams
  • One player from each game must report their stats in.  We will open up a tournament stat tracking thread after the tournament begins. 
  • To track your wins, you must do the following - post the replay at gamereplays.org.  If you have issues with gamereplays, upload the file to rapid share and provide us with a link.  One player from the winning team should do this for each and every match. 
  • Each team must complete a minimum of 2 matches (6 games) per week.  If there are extenuating circumstances, then the decision making panel will review them.  Failure to complete 2 matches per week will result in a disqualification for your team. 
  • ALL teams are required to use the version of the uberfix mod here:  http://forums.demigodthegame.com/399037

Alternates

  • Each team is allowed to have exactly 1 alternate
  • The alternate must not be participating in the tournament (either directly registered for the tournament or on a duplicate account). If it is discovered that the alternate is a player that is already in the tournament, but using a different account, all of those matches will be forfeited.
  • The same alternate cannot be used by multiple teams
  • If a team wins a cash prize with an alternate on their team, that team must determine how they will handle the prize money.  The decision making panel has nothing to do with how you choose to split up the money.

Prize 

There will be a cash prize > $600.  Jongalt will be handling the collection of the money for this tournament.  We are discussing the prize money in this linked thread:  http://forums.demigodthegame.com/398009.  We appreciate any contributions to the prize.  YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PAY TO PLAY IN THIS TOURNEY. 

Here is how we will be splitting the winnings from the pot:

  • 10% goes to the team that wins the round robin
  • 50% of the balance goes to the winner of the playoffs
  • 25% of the balance goes to the 2nd place winner of the playoffs
  • 15% of the balance goes to the 3rd place winner of the playoffs
  • Participation raffle - 1 player from a team that has completed all of their games in the tournament will be entered into a random drawing after the tournament ends.  That player will receive a prize of $30 as incentive for finishing the tournament.  This money will be taken from the total cash pot before any other money is distributed by percentage.  Any player that has won a cash prize is NOT eligible for the participation raffle.

Demigod Selection

Each 3 man team must use the following formula to make their Demigod character selections based on a 7 point maximum.  Be aware that no duplicate demigods are permitted on the same team.  This means you cannot choose random.

  • Demon Assassin/Regulus - 1 point
  • Oculus/Queen of Thorns/Senda/Torch Bearer - 2 points
  • Lord Erebus/Oak/Rook/Unclean Beast - 3 points

Tournament Time Zone

The official time zone of the tournament is set for EST US time.  Players that are outside of that timezone are certainly welcome to play.  However, if there are significant scheduling difficulties due to players unable meet at the same time, the team furthest outside of the EST zone will most likely be disqualified or forfeit that match.  This rule does not excuse folks in the EST zone from any responsibility.  All parties in this tournament should endeavor to schedule their matches with other teams and try to be as flexible as possible. 

Decision Making Panel

This tournament will be governed by a decision making panel consisting of pacov, McShane, hedgie with Jongalt as an alternate.  The panel's purpose is as follows:

  • Review any scheduling issues and making the final decisions with regards to disqualification. 
  • Reviewing replays as required (crashes and desyncs)
  • Resolving any disputes that arise

The panel's decision on all matters will be the final word for this tournament. And last, the members of the decision making panel will not make any decisions on the games they are playing in.  We didn't have a panel in place for the first tournament and that was a mistake. 

How will we handle crashes

If there is a game crash, the players involved in that match should see if they can come to a consensus on the probable outcome of the match.  If there is no clear winner, the 2 teams should replay the match using the exact same demigods and sides (light/dark).  If there was a clear winner at that point in the game, then that team should be awarded the win.  If the 2 teams disagree on the outcome, then the decision making panel will review the replay of the match and render a decision.  Be aware that the decision making panel must agree that a specific team was going to win or the results will be thrown out and the match redone.  Please be thoughtful if you want the panel to review a match. 

How we will handle invalid game states

The lastgamereplay file is still created in the event of an invalid game state, so it is still possible to review the results of a match.  In the event of an invalid game state, players should attempt to resolve the issue exactly the same way as game crashes.  If you believe foul play occurred, submit the replay along with any screen shots, etc, as evidence and the decision making panel will review.  If there is a CLEAR consensus that a team is willingly triggering invalid game states, that team will be disqualified after a thorough review of the facts and will no longer be able to participate in the tournament.  If your game does crash, it might be advisable to take a screen shot of the crash as proof.  Be aware that we know invalid game states can occur without any sort of foul play, so please be mindful when submitting requests for review.

I'm not sure what a "directly" click is. For me it's left-click or right-click. Either way there no link to a file.

pacov: Posting here in the hopes that Lord_Orion might see it.

Haven't heard from Orion all week. Sure he's just been busy, but on the off chance he stays AWOL, what are the chances of us being able to sign on another teammate?

If any of the unassigned players out there who would still like to be on a team want to play with us, we are currently looking for an alternate and/or a primary teammate if Orion isn't around.

you can sign up one alternate at any point.  As long as it conforms to the alternate rules above, it's all good.. and if orion returns, you can still play with him primarily w/e.

Cool guys - I'll add that later today.  Please check with rui again if you see him today to confirm that the 2nd team is good.

Rui - its up to your team to coordinate when you can play together and try to schedule your own matches.  The good news is you can catch a lot of us on vent to schedule.

OK guys - registration SHOULD officially close in 5 minutes - I'm going to extend registration for 2 more hours.  But that will be the final cutoff.  YOU NEED TO FORM A TEAM IMMEDIATELY IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE.

Registration is now officially closed.  You are still able to pick up alternates if you'd like or need to do so.  Just play attention to the rules outlined in the OP regarding alternates. 

edit - and i just noticed that I don't think we ever finalized the actual total dollar value of the participation prize.  If you folks have strong opinions about this, chime back in here and we can discuss.  For now, I'm writing it up this way:

  • Participation raffle - 1 player from a team that has completed all of their games in the tournament will be entered into a random drawing after the round robin tournament ends.  That player will receive a prize of $30 as incentive for finishing the tournament.  This money will be taken from the total cash pot before any other money is distributed by percentage.  Anyone player that has won a cash prize is NOT eligible for the participation raffle. 

I'm honestly not sure if we sorted this out or not, but I welcome feedback.  I think the only other option would be to offer a payout to an entire team, drawn at random, and give them each a $20 cash prize.

Hey guys, it's been brought to my attention that some of the teams in the tourney are inexperienced with demigod in general and some purchased the game during the recent sale. 

This is your opportunity to show that you are a good member of our community, that we aren't DOTA dicks, and are willing to help out new players.

I will not be happy with anyone who belligerently run scores & kills up just for the sake of doing so.  Please don't make me unhappy.  I'm married, that's her job, not yours

I would expect the elite players to really help the new players out.  I might even be impressed if you invite them in to your vent channel to discuss builds, purchase orders and strats. 

But most of all don't be a

Eh It depends.. I can see the allfather's ring paying off greatly.  I didn't do it in my game to be like "omfg we're up 100 kills and going to keep squashing you w/out going for the win.. woo crystal farming" the game was actually undecided at the point I got it (although it greatly turned the tide)

Looking for an alternate!!! Our third Teammate, Lord_Orion has been incommunicado for nearly a week now, and Chiefy and I are thinking we're about to get DQed from the tourney if we don't get some games in ASAP. If you are a registered alternate, PLEASE PM me! I am not going to start PMing people because I want someone who is actively on the forums and ready and willing to communicate.

We are mid-level players but are really laid back and easy to play with. (But still pretty competitive, just not dinks about it.)
