SSL September ’15

The following lines were copied from the original newspost


The modes which will be played in this month are, Insta, FFA, Effic and Efficctf

Player seedings will be randomly determined after sign ups close. To guarantee the highest value of fairness, we are coming up with some new idea this month. In the Qualifier stages every game will be played on the same map, which we will announce one week before the tourney! The map will be shuffled out of the mappool, which will consist of 10 maps. That way the higher seeded player doesn’t have the advantage of the mappick and the lower seed has a higher chance to be the equal of his opponent.

Signups close Friday, September 11th, 11:59 PM CEST.

Day One

  • Qualifier stages.
    • Each match will be a Best of One.
    • We will shuffle one map out of the map pool, which will be played in every single qualifier match.
    • Qualifying games will take place on two servers at the scheduled time.

Day Two

  • Semifinals. Each match will be a Best of Three.
    • The person/team we ranked higher will pick map #1.
    • The lower ranked player/team will pick map #2.
    • If necessary, the higher seed will pick the tiebreaker map.
    • All maps need to be picked out of the map pool (9 maps)
  • Finals. The final match will be a Best of Three.
    • The person/team we ranked higher will pick map #1.
    • The lower ranked player/team will pick map #2.
    • If necessary, the higher seed will pick the tiebreaker map
    • All maps need to be picked out of the map pool (9 maps)

SIGNUPS

Signups will be done via challonge from now on. To sign up you just need to create a challonge account. Then you will be able to sign up via the links you can see below. If you try to sign up via Fearer, Frosty, or swatllama in IRC, you’ll be redirected to our website. If you email us, we’ll send you a link to the signup page. Please make sure you’re familiar with the format and the rules we have laid out. If you have an issue, suggestion, or confusion, talk to us in IRC before signing up. When you sign up, you should know exactly what you’re signing up for.

If for whatever reason, you need to pull out of the tournament after you have signed up, let us know about it in IRC or via email. Be careful about IRC – keep checking the schedule and the participant list to make sure we got the message. Sometimes bouncers go down, our computers crash, we lose our logs, etc… if you’re worried about this, send us emails in addition to IRC, or instead of if you’d like. Don’t be afraid to pester all of us if you have to pull out early.

SURPRISE

We will have a quite big surprise for you guys, which we will announce 1 DAY before the event starts. So, especially the ones who want to participate should be around on Saturday, the 12th September, to not miss the great news! We also recommend everyone to get used to the comed or vanilla client!!
