Sure, I will change plans of all other players just cause of you. ;)

Brackets are set and ready. Playoff will start shortly after 22:00. After brackets for Playoff will be created, I will give you info If the final battles will be moved to next day or not.

 

Good luck and have fun!

Why are there 30mins between each group stage battle? Why cant it be the old battle time + some minutes, so the group stage would be over in an hour (just like it used to be) instead of having to play the group stage for 2,5h. Add the playoffs on top of that, and you'll have people playing this tournament for god knows how long.

 

Edit: Nvm, just noticed that the group stage is Bo3 so the times make sense now.

 

Just makes me wonder that if group stage is Bo3, then why the hell are start of playoffs Bo1? Why not make it the other way around?

Special tournaments with special prizes have always different rules than standard tournaments.

There is a lot of battles during Group Stage so players have chance to prove they deserve to be between those top 2 that proceed to Playoff. On the other hand, by that time you already have enough warm up on the maps and with your opponents, to be able to play in Playoff on the first try as best as you can.

Take it as something for a change.

To me, you are now surprised only because you didn´t read the rules when you were signing up.

Quite an hostile answer, especially considering I admitted my mistake of not reading the rules properly the first time (It's even in your quote...) and then asked a legitimate question. Chill man.

 

Edit: But just to clarify, I get the reasoning to do the tournament the way it is and I dont mind that much. It's just that having group battles bo3 then start of playoffs bo1 feels a bit backwards. Personally I'd rather play groups Bo1, then playoffs all the way Bo3 (As you can still lose one in groups and go through + you're not instantly out off playoffs after 1 round loss).

Yeah, I totally get it and that is also why we have it like that for all the other tournaments. 

But having the whole Playoff in Bo3 wouldn't be possible. It would be approx 8-9 rounds in Bo3 which would be about 5-6 hours for finalists for only the Playoff. And also the amount of waiting time during Playoff is more difficult since you are waiting for everyone to finish.

Other solution would be having it split directly into 2 days but that wouldn´t change anything on the time spent playing the tournament.

To be honest, there is no perfect solution to it. We use the most common one during our regular tournaments. While this tournament is a bit special, we changed it around a bit. I am aware of the fact that the tournament is quit long (even though perhaps 7/68 is not much shorter) but as I said, this is special tournament, it has a bit different concept, it takes more time but hopefully players will enjoy for once to have bigger chance to change the score and standings.

the description of the tournament is wrong again, it says groups of 6 but the rules say groups of 5. Bo3 is ok but it's stupid to do it with groups of 5, since one team is without a game for each round, and you end up with over 1 hour of waiting time between your 2 rounds
