Tournament Hosts


If you have any questions, please message one of the following members.

Streaming


Voobly Official Streaming will be done by _Altay & Platino. Streaming and spectating is allowed for anyone who wishes to do so. The only two rules are 1) Minimum of 3 minutes spectator delay in the game room settings, and 2) If you want to stream, you need to be a spectator, not a 'Player'. More information can be found here.


Start Date


When
Saturday, September 20th @ 07:00am (-7 GMT)
  • You have one week to complete the first Round. The first Round must have the last game played by September 27th @ 07:00am (-7 GMT).

Where
Tournament Lobby - VCOM Ladder
  • The VCOM Ladder must be used for all Tournament games. If the game is launched without selecting the VCOM Ladder, the match will be void and will be repeated.

Time Zone Converter

  • Check your timezone to see if the time & date to play is ok for every teammate.
  • If one of your teammates decides they can't play after Round One has been completed, then you have the option to play 4v3 or forfeit the tournament. You may not substitute players.

Sign-ups


Brackets

  • Brackets will be finished and posted by September 19th.
  • Elimination Rounds: Rounds 1 & 2 are single elimination Rounds (if you lose the first match, you don't move on to the next Round). For Semi-Finals (Round 3) and the Final Round (Round 4) it will be Bo3 (best out of 3 matches). The team with the two wins and one loss for that Round will move on.
  • Tournament will consist of 56 Players with 14 teams per Division. Total of 112 players with 28 teams.
  • Brackets will be decided by VCOM Hosts (who is playing vs who).
  • VCOM Hosts will try to evenly match up teams based on Division Criteria and Timezone location.

Now is the time to post your suggestions for this tournament. Please do not sign up here. This thread is for suggestions/ideas only. A new thread will be created for sign-ups, brackets & for posting your recorded games for each match.

Sign-ups will begin Saturday, August 23rd so we need to get the details out of the way.

Troll posts, or unnecessary/irrelevant posts will be deleted.

Thoughts?

No and No. lol One can pick up where they left off in a few years if they have enough RM games played. Say a person has 50 games in two years, that tells me they are still learning. We didn't have the NPL in 2012 so that is why I stated after 2012 in the suggestion. If a player has 1500 games in MS in 2013 and none in 2014, then your suggestion would make zero sense.

A 1550 rating or 1350 rating is very close to the rating cap for both Ladders. This is why it's a No.

If you have a concern about playing in Division B, you don't qualify. You have almost 200 matches played in the MS Lounge, not including your 300 matches from the previous 5 years.

I have a friend.. he's 1380 in MS and played 800 games.
REALLY BAD 111
can he play on intermediate?
Also there's a LOT of 1400 gamers on MS.

Can they play too?
I didn't really get the idea of intermediate, you say "No more than 200 games played" but look at my friend: http://www.voobly.com/profile/view/151052
I'm not sayin that he will play, I'm just asking.

btw, Im really glad that this is going on..
it's the first one ever C:

I think you will have to play in division B like the rest of us ,you have some good advance times in your games.
Unless the zero games rule is changed for division A any player who has played in MS with not more than 30 games must play in division B.

And yes, i was concerned about playing in Div "B". 300 matches in 5 years, a regular voobly player gets 300 matches in over one year.

I have just got it, dont worry im not trying to piss you off.

In a future, i may suggest a Div C with 13++ NPL players in the same conditions like me. I know a lot of them in NPL (i play with them all the time, u can ckeck my profile :) ), furthermore they donĀ“t play anymore in MS becuase they get bushed there vs 16++ , moreover in MS there are not BF TG (just for 17++, and you get kicked for being noob), thats why NPL got so many BF TGs.

I just was sharing MY situation that may fit with other players that want to join the tourny.

Good Luck indeed! This is a great achivement!
