We have said from the very beginning, that due to the scant participation in this informal tournament, and to allow for real life issues, that the team rosters would be flexible.

This is why the "official" rosters will be submitted for prizing after the tournament is completed, to make sure that the 14 members of each team are those who actually put in the work.

 

Apparently, this next week will be difficult for some teams to field a full team.  There has been some question about filling teams for battles with "free agents", due to a team being shorthanded. 

This has been allowed in at least two separate matches so far this tournament, once with SICK using an unregistered pilot without a clan tag, and once with WHAWK using an unregistered pilot without a clan tag.

 

There is actually a provision for this in the tournament rules.

 

Block Quote

2 stage double elimination style  -  Random seeding in Stage 1, which will determine seeding for Stage 2.

ALL TEAMS ADVANCE TO STAGE 2!!

 

Once registration closes, Stage 1 brackets will be randomly seeded.

One team in each match will be designated the "Home Team".

"Home Team" is responsible for creating the Training Room for the battle, per the Setup outlined above.

ALL aircraft are to be hidden from the opposing team.

NO BOTS ARE ALLOWED! If your team is shorthanded, you may fill empty slots with anyone who is available to fly, or you may fly shorthanded...it's all up to you.

Teams MAY change out their aircraft between battles, as long as the aircraft restrictions are met.

Once a battle has ended, the winning Team Captain should take a screen shot of the Team Score panel.

Once a team has won a total of three (3) battles, the Team Captain of the winning team must post the Team Score screenshots to the forum thread that will be set up for reporting results.

Battle results must be posted by midnight of the following day (i.e. Friday and Sunday).

 

Let me finish by saying that an "anonymous benefactor" has donated 98,000 gold for prizing, to be disbursed as follows:

 

1st Place Team - 4000 gold for EACH member on the official 14-man roster.

 

2nd Place Team - 2000 gold for EACH member on the official 14-man roster.

 

3rd Place Team - 1000 gold for EACH member on the official 14-man roster.

 

Due to the flexible nature of the rosters for the tournament, each Team Captain must send me their official roster AT THE COMPLETION of the tournament, so that I can forward the rosters for disbursement of prizing.

 

That should answer any questions.

Remember people, this tournament may have gold prizing, but the main purpose to have have some fun PvP battles.  The game is always at its best when the sky is full of players, rather than bots.

SO JUST GO HAVE FUN!!

Good luck this week.
