3v3 March Madness Tourney 2019

Postby FishMob » Mon Feb 18, 2019 8:01 pm

HA3X 3v3 March Madness 2019
$150 prize to first place
Sign ups close Midnight March 4th EST.
There will be 6 teams of 3 players each for a total of 18 participants
6 captains will be chosen based on a voting from all participants
The 6 captains will draft teams
The teams will be split into 2 divisions to compete in a group stage amongst the division
The 2 teams that advance will play in a best of 5 championship round.


Captain Voting
Each participant will be asked to submit 6 players that they nominate to be captains. Submissions should list the captains in the order of perceived skill. The first nomination of a submission will receive 6 points, the 2nd will receive 5 points, and so on with the 6th nomination receiving 1 point. The 6 players with the most points will be appointed captains in the order of points received.

Team Draft
The 6th captain will begin the draft by selecting a player from the pool of signups followed by the next captain in order until each captain has picked. This order will repeat itself for the 2nd round starting with the 6th captain again. If there are more than 18 sign ups some people will not be drafted, but may play as a substitute if one is needed.

Divisions
Team numbers are based on captain ranking.
Teams 1, 3, and 5 will be placed in Red Division.
Teams 2, 4, and 6 will be placed in Blue Division.

Group Stage

You can only use each race once per matchup.

Red Division
Matchup #1: Team 1 vs Team 3.
Matchup #2: Team 1 vs Team 5.
Matchup #3: Team 3 vs Team 5.


Blue Division
Matchup #1: Team 2 vs Team 4.
Matchup #2: Team 2 vs Team 6.
Matchup #3: Team 4 vs Team 6.

The team with the best record from each group will advance to the championship round!
Tiebreaker: Head-to-Head Record
If there is a 3-way tie the tiebreaker will be best K/D spread among all games.

Championship
This will be a best of 5 among the final 2 teams.
You are only allowed to use the same race 2 times max.
The Winner is champion and wins the prize money!

Game will be paused on the race select screen and the hero select screen and each team is allowed 2 additional hero bans for the opposing team. After both teams have decided their heroes, game will begin.
Farming and expos are fair game.
Giving teammates items in an attempt to make them stronger will result in a disqualification.
Disclaimer: You will be disqualified for cheating, hacking, colluding, or engaging in any other form of unfair play not intended for the game.


Prizes and Observers
GlassKey and I are staking a total of $90 for first place prize. However, if you would like to donate, 100% of the donation will be added to that prize.
Donators of $10 or more are permitted to observe the games given there is enough room in the lobby (even if the donator is a player in the tournament).
No other observers are allowed.
Donate Here! Please include your SC2 name in the donation.

Logistics
Teams are to coordinate the day and times of their own matchups based on the parameters outlined.
Timeline for matches:
Group stage must be completed by March 22nd.
Championship Round must be completed by March 30th.
If you do not play your matchups by these dates you may be disqualified.
If your team has shown an effort to be available on several occasions to play the matchup but the other team has been uncooperative then only 1 team may be disqualified with the other being granted the win.
If a team is having trouble contacting a team member, a substitution is allowed ONLY if the other team agrees on the substitute. However, if the opposing team is disagreeing on all substitutes, a substitute may be allowed at my discretion if I deem the player to be of less or comparable skill to the missing player and I suspect the opposing team is abusing their ability to deny a substitute. The substitute may not be a participant already in the tournament.
Prizes will be available through PayPal or Venmo with an even 3 way split amongst the team.
Games may be streamed on Twitch here!

Good luck, have fun.

****UPDATE****

With only 2 days left we are unlikely to reach the full 24 signups for the tournament. People have still expressed interest in playing regardless, so we will play with 6 teams instead of 8. The format is going to change in a few ways. Each group will now have 3 teams instead of 4. Each team must play both other teams in their group 3 times each. It is now 3 total instead of a best of 3. The team with the best record among those 6 games will advance. The following tiebreakers will be used if needed - Tiebreaker: Head-to-Head Record. If there is a 3-way tie, the tiebreaker will be the best K/D spread among all games. A new rule will also be implemented that you must use all 3 races once and only once vs both teams. We will pause the game on race select screen to allow teams to discuss their race strategy. The 2 teams that advance pass the group stage will play in the championship round. The championship round will be a best of 5. For the championship round you are allowed to use each race 2 times. Since we did not reach our goal of 24 players the prize will be cut to $90. At this point, feel free to send Glass or I your 6 players that you nominate to be captains. The order of your list matters! Good luck. I'm looking forward to beating you guys ;-)

I've also decided to ban 2 farming heroes from each race. Since farming is allowed, these heroes would be too powerful and probably picked in most games.

Banned Terran Heroes: Marine, SCV

The tourney can officially start now. If the players are all online for one of your match-ups go ahead and play it. I will try to be online most of the time to help facilitate everything. Its better to get them done ASAP but I realize not everyone is available at the same time. Remember, you can use a sub if you need and the other team allows it. $150 is up for grabs. Good Luck.

Changing format to best out of 3. People don't seem to like 3 total. This wont affect any of the games that have already been played.
