AoMEE Team tournament: rules and signups thread
Hi Guys,

I'm sure most of you have seen that supa fly has kindly agreed to donate $250 towards the running of a team tournament and I've stepped up to try and get things organised. I'll post the rules here, as well as encouraging people to sign up here.

If you don't have a team, but you want to play please post HERE so we can try and get a team set up for you :)

So far the pot for prize money is at $300 however at least one player has told me he will donate the winnings from EEL if he wins. Other donations are of course encouraged, but please speak to supa fly about this.

Current donators:
me_supa_fly: $250
Ubermode: $50
LNC_GoldenAxe: $25

With the $325 pot we currently have however, the prize will be spread as follows:

1st place: $150
2nd place: $100
3rd place: $50
Prize for the most inventive, innovative and fun home map strategy (which will be decided by a panel of 3 players): $25


We are very eager for this to become the first of a number of EE tournaments, and so participation is highly encouraged. I will be posting the links to this thread on rts sanctuary, aom heaven and the DoD clan site in order to try and attract players from voobly. I also strongly encourage all players who check these forums to spread the word, in order to attract as much interest as possible.

I will be capping the number of entries at 32 teams, however i think it is unlikely to reach this number.

If we have over 16 teams I will operate a group stage, consisting of 4 teams, operating under the same rules as the rest of the competition. The top 2 teams in each group will progress to the last 16, which will operate under a knockout system. The groups will be randomly selected without any seeds, in which case we may well see clans with A and B teams in the same group; drama! If we have less that 16 teams entered we will progress directly to a knockout stage.

Players currently without a team:

WhereYouAre
Hillary Clinton
Hubscubalub


Entered teams:
KeeN
LNC
It's Okay To Be Gay
Team Supa Fly
The Scrubs Avengers
Team Chaos
JewliciousBaguetteAndTea
Team ConMeo
Janissaries Team
Team Michelini


RULES

Basic rules:

1.) ALL ENTRIES must hold an EE rating of at least 1800+ before signing up, including signups who don't have a team but wish to participate.

2.) Please ensure you have a strong internet connection before signing up; no red turtle players please. This ruins the experience for others. I am aware the game doesn't operate using servers anymore which can causes a regional issue but we can address this by potentially agreeing to a 2v2 instead.

3.) Teams of THREE must be entered with ONE spare in the event of an unforeseen circumstance. Games must be played as 3v3, however 2v2 or 4v4 is acceptable as long as BOTH teams agree and it is confirmed with myself before scheduling, and playing the game.

4.) Games will be played in a BO3 format. Each team will pick a home map. If the score is 1-1 after each team has played their home map, a decider will be played on a NEW map set being made, which is discussed in further detail below.

5.) Clans may enter multiple teams, but players MAY NOT play in more than one team. Can I remind people that that they must enter a team of THREE PLAYERS plus a SPARE. So if a clan wanted to enter two teams they need eight players.

6.) Please no time wasters. I don't want to be having to award admin wins more than is strictly necessary. In the event that a match is scheduled and a team fails to turn up, without giving any warning or reasons why they will simply be disqualified. If a team is unable to field their whole team for whatever reason, a 2v2 may be requested. If the other team doesn't wish to do this, then the team must find a player who is not already playing in another team to fill in. In this situation, I must be informed as well as the other team, with as much warning as possible.


Civilisation rules:

7.) No tripling of the same major god (or doubling/quadrupling in 2v2 or 4v4 games). For example no kronos/kronos/kronos, however kronos/kronos/oranos is acceptable.

8.) No team member may use the same major god twice in a row if they win. For example if a team takes Isis/Zeus/Oranos for game one and then wins, in game two ALL THREE members off that team must use DIFFERENT major gods in the next game. No team member may use any of those 3 gods in their 2nd game. If, however, they LOSE the first game with that lineup they may then use them (or change, if they prefer) for their second game. Players are free to use the same lineup of civs from the LAST game in one match into the FIRST game of their following match.

9.) Chinese civs are allowed, however face the same restrictions of any other civ eg no triple Shennong.

Map rules

9.) Each team must pick a home map. The map can be ANY map from the original ESO RANDOM ALL map set, or the EE RANDOM ALL map set. The new chinese maps from TotD are NOT ALLOWED.

10.) In the event of a 1-1 tie after each team has played, a decider will be played on a NEW random map set that contains the original ESO RANDOM map set (so the maps you would find in rated, including HIGHLAND), as well as the EE RANDOM map set (again, just the maps you would find in rated). It was agreed this was the fairest way to do this without favouring any particular set of players, or playing style. The maps will be labelled on the loading screen whether they are EE or ESO.

In-game rules

11.) All games must be uploaded on to RTS sanctuary. (I understand the forums there aren't working brilliantly at the moment; if that continues to be the case I will have to find some other way to upload the games, but I will keep this updated with that info.)

12.) Obviously no cheating or bug abuse of any kind will be tolerated, players found to be using anything to gain an unfair advantage will be instantly disqualified, along with the rest of their team.

13.) If a player drops before 2.30 the game will be replayed. If a player drops after that the game continues as normal. In the event of a whole game crash or something similar if a player was quite clearly winning, e.g. 4v1 tc with superior economy, military and in mythic age v classic age that team will be awarded the win. If no clear decision can be made, the game will have to be replayed. You may feel as if you were in a strong or winning position but just because your score is two or three hundred points higher this certainly isn't an indication that you were certain to win. In the event of a discrepancy I will have the final word on a win being awarded or a game being replayed.

14.) Likewise, if a map is deemed unsuitable, a veto must be declared before 2.30. If there is something truly game breaking (for example, a tc fails to spawn) then the game must be replayed; this will not effect a team's veto. Each team has one veto PER MATCH.



I believe that is everything; If anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to ask. I will create a heading at the very top of this thread for individual player signups who are in search of team mates. Full teams please signup below. Signups will be open for TWO WEEKS from todays date, so close on 12/6, or until we reach 32 teams (unlikely but you never know ;) ).

Thanks guys, may the best team win!

Here's the map set, which contains both ESO(including Highland) and EE's modified versions. Every player who plans on participating in this tournament needs to subscribe to this mod in order to play this map set.


Edit: I'll also donate $25...

So, if player 1 is isis, player 2 zeus player 3 oranos, and they win a match. they need to switch. but what if they cycle the same lineup? so the next game they would go p1 oranos p2 isis p3 zeus?

Also, great job with the tournament! i hope the best of luck to you guys with hosting it =)

Nope, none of those guys could use any of the same gods their teaem member used. So Game 1 could be Isis/Zeus/Oranos and if they win they then have to be Ra/Hades/Gaia; if they then lose this game they can go back to Isis/Zeus/Oranos for the tie breaker game.

I would like to play, but currently still without a team :)
mINJEN May 29 @ 1:06pm 
I'm not sure there are enough teams of 3 people out there to make something like this possible (can't even imagine 4v4). IMO you should restrict this to pure 2n2, it will have more chance to succeed. If you look at RTSL, it has always been hard to shedule matches.
Gl in this project tho, I may sign up in the future.

theres enough people, the problem is just that a lot of people dont participate in tournaments

i could make a list of 50+ people who do not play in the current EEleague even thou they play everyday or every other day, including myself. but I prefer TG over 1v1, hence I only play in TG tourneys.

im signing up with this team:
keen flame, keen aries, and keen trap, billy
I'll add our spare player once we know who it is =)

I suck compared to y'all, but I'd like to team with conmeo.

Updated :)

DoD look as though they will be entering at least one, possibly two teams :)

@minjen, there's were 32 people entered for EEL, 33 including yourself; whilst not all of them actually played, that gives us at least 11 teams already! Getting something like this running is just about taking the plunge and getting it going at least once.
TheMista May 30 @ 9:19am 
Themista - IamMagic team
ItsOkayToBeGay team
Me, Gmz., TheArsenalStyle, Shogoki
Hagrit can confirm that I was 1802 before I was reset so could I pleas join. I do not have a team yet though
Ubermode May 30 @ 2:15pm 
Updated post.

Themista, full teams only please! Try and find someone else for you and magic, plus a spare :)
Because of desyncs; meaning no specetators, you can upload the casts on some place, and i'll cast over them and place em on youtube, if there isn't anyone casting. Basically how EscapeAoe does em.

So i guess casters: me if nobody else wants D:

What? you can observe just fine with multiple people, no bugs or desyncs in that aspect at all :p
