    Rules

    Format

    • Mastermind 2v2
    • Day 1: 2 Groups of 8 teams. Top 3 teams of each group advance to day 2.
      • Ties broken by (1) wins vs. tied participants. If there are still ties, there will be tie breaker games. So, you could have potentially more than 6 games (7 games max probably).
      • Your opponent will be selected using Swiss rules.
    • Day 2: Bo1 Double Elimination
      • Seeds 1 and 2 will get byes in round 1
      • Seed 3 will select their opponent from seeds 5 and 6
      • Seed 4 will play the remaining opponent (seed 5 or 6)
      • Seed 1 will select their side of the bracket (seed 3 side or seed 4 side)
    Seeding
    • Teams will be seeded by their average peak rating in season 4. Peak ratings will be automatically calculated at the end of sign-up. You only need to sign up once.
    • Teams are distributed by this process :
      • First team in group A, second team in group B. Repeat this process until there are not more teams.
      • If there is an odd number team, there will be one more team in group A.
    Ready Up
    • Teams must announce in tournament_checkin that they are ready within 5 minutes of each game's official start time. Failure to do so will result in an automatic forfeit. The only exception is if their previous game is going long.
    • If either player on your team fails to show for the game on time, this may result in a ban from participating in future tournaments.
    Lobby Creation, Side Selection, & Player Positions
    1. The top team (the team that is displayed on top in the Challonge bracket) creates the custom game lobby. This may differ from seed order.
    2. The top team selects its preferred side (west or east).
    3. The bottom team selects its preferred player positions
    4. The top team selects its preferred player positions
    5. Once both teams confirm they are ready, the game can be started
    Lobby Creation, Side Selection, & Player Positions

    The higher seeded (closer to 1) team will always get side selection (west or east) and player position priority. This may differ from what is displayed in the Challonge bracket. The only exception is Grandfinals game 2, in which the teams swap.

    Reporting Results
    Game-impacting Bugs, Disconnects, & Remakes
    • In general, we will not be honoring remake requests. Legion TD 2 is an Early Access game, and there will inevitably be bugs. Remakes cause delays that compromise the entire tournament's schedule and also encourage players to cheat by disconnecting or reporting a bug if they are losing or have bad rolls.
    • You should not request a remake, unless it's an obviously critical bug, such as being unable to deploy fighters.
    • Pathing and targeting issues (especially mid and late game) generally will not be considered worthy of a remake.
    • You cannot ask the opposing team for permission to remake. That decision is made by the staff, not the opposing team.
    • To request a remake, you must:
    1. Record your games (here's a guide on how to do that).
    2. Notify the opposing team that you are requesting a remake immediately at the time of the game-impacting bug.
    3. Notify Seraphin in tournament_lobby that you are requesting a remake immediately at the time of the game-impacting bug.
    4. Share video footage of the game-impacting bug with staff.
    Staff will review the video and make a decision based on (1) the severity of the bug, (2) the state of the game, and (3) implications on the tournament's schedule. If it is determined that the bug critically impacted the team's ability to win by 40%+ (e.g. the team's chance of winning decreased from 60% -> 20%) and if remaking wouldn't disrupt the tournament's schedule, a remake may be granted.

    Casting

    Will be casted and streamed by LForward here.

    At the moment, there are 4 teams registered @Cornep. Just I don't have any time to update the list since I'm in a foreign country for my work.
    The list will be updated on Friday evening.

    Team list is updated for the last time ! You can check who will participate and the average peak rating for each team.
    Group A and B have been done also. You can directly check in which group you are on team list.
    Brackets have also been done !! You can see your first opponent for the day 1!

    I updated rule for the day 1. Since there are more teams that I expected, round will be determined by Swiss rule for each group!
    If you have any question, you can contact me directly in the tournament lobby with a @Seraphin on discord or here.

    Thanks to all participants and thanks Auto Attack for sponsoring the tournament !

    @General Freedom And @Goobi : Exceptionnaly, I will add your team to the list even if you didn't sign up on time. But please, next time try to register before sign up ends ;)

    I precise also that the bracket is a tentative one. It can change depending on teams which drop. It will be updated tomorrow before the tournament start if necessary and you will warned if there is any change.
