Autumn Instacup (#4) - morosophos - 11-09-2018

Instacup #4 - Instagib Duel Tournament

Hello fellow instagibbers!
Long time we haven't had a good test of our skills. Let's fix it by playing an Instacup #4, which we'll host at Nov 24th-25th.

We decided to use a shorter format to avoid having issues with player availability. The cup will take just two evenings on Saturday and Sunday.

We don't have any prize money so far, but donations are highly appreciated!

1. General

Join #xonotic.cup ( https://webchat.quakenet.org/?channels=xonotic.cup )

1.1 Group Stage
The group stage has a seeding purpose for the bracket and no one gets eliminated in this stage.
  • Each group consists of 4 or 5 players
  • Round Robin
  • Best of 3

Group 1 plays out seed #1, #2, #3 and #4
Group 2: seed #5 - #8
Group 3: seed #9 - #12

Obviously the group stage will have a seeding already, which means that you should end up in a group with similar skilled players.
This way, also lower level skilled players can have some fun and not just get stomped.

1.2 Double Elimination

There will be a Winner Bracket and a Loser Bracket.
If you lose a match, you will drop to the Loser Bracket and continue playing.
If you lose again you are out of the tournament

1.3 Schedule

Saturday, 24th November 2018: Check-in opens: 18:00 CET | Tournament start: 19:00 CET | End: Group Stage + 'How far we can get' in the bracket [approx. 23:00 CET or earlier] // http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/
Sunday, 25th November 2018: Start: 19:00 CET

If a player has to leave for some time, he has to message one of the admins! We will try to schedule his match a bit later then.
If you do not let an admin know then you might get disqualified from the tournament for delaying matches.

Demos will be recorded on the servers. Please be aware that this will record all chats including private ones (via "tell")
