    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    2. RULES
    Player / Team Requirements:
    • Every player participating in the Tournament must use a level 20 Character.
    • Teams Must maintain communication with admins for any changes pertaining their team's availability.
    • Teams are required to be online and ready to play at least an hour before the tournament starts. This helps administration ensure we have all teams participating, and that we will be ready to start on schedule.


    Sign-ups:


    Team must sign up using the following format.

    Team Name
    Team Captain Name
    Team Captain Battle Tag
    Team Member 1
    Team Member 2
    Team Member 3
    Team Member 4 (Optional)
    Every team is required to present the battle tag of their captain. If a team does not wish to do so publicly, it must be messaged directly to either myself, @Trialmop , @Conq , @Blackout , or @lindenkron .


    Team Composition Rules:
    - Teams must select compositions based on one of the following formats.

    1. Healer / Healer / DPS
    2. Healer / DPS / DPS

    Note: Hybrid damage dealing specializations such as Retribution Paladins and Enhancements / Elemental Shamans constitute a DPS not a healer.


    - Teams may include up to 2 of the same class, yet they may not include more than 1 of each Specialization.

    For example: A team CAN include 2 Priests, yet it CANNOT include 2 Discipline Priests.


    - Two players maximum from every team are allowed to have a second class.

    - A Maximum of 4 players per team is allowed.


    Example Team Sign-up:

    Captain Name Here
    Captain Btag Here
    Team Member 1 - Class 1 / Class 2
    Team Member 2 - Class
    Team Member 3 - Class 1 / Class 2
    Team Member 4 - Class

    - Teams Can swap Compositions on a Per-Match basis, yet once teams have entered a match their composition is considered "locked in" for that match, and even if teams had to leave that match for any reason, they are required to re-enter with the same composition.


    Combat Bugging / Disconnections / Citizenship:

    Combat Bugging:

    • Combat Bugging is NOT permitted. Teams must enter combat through means of their individual abilities and NOT through the use of pets.
    • Once combat is obtained it can be maintained through any means as long as the players are actively engaged in and out of battle.
    • Example: At the Start of a match, a Hunter may not send the pet to attack an enemy and have his team heal him to obtain combat. Yet once the fight has begun normally the pet can be used to maintain combat as long as the entire team is not sitting "afk" behind "line of sight."
    Disconnections:
    • Teams are expected to be ready to play every one of their series through out the entire tournament.
    • Once the gates have opened, the game will be played and scored. If a team member disconnects before the gates open, the game will be replayed without penalty.
    • If further disconnections happen the team will have to play the games out.
    • A maximum of 5 minutes will be given to a team that experiences a disconnection to obtain their member back. After the 5 minutes they must either use a 4th member (if they have one) use 5 minutes of their break time or forfeit the series.
    • Teams are allotted 20 minutes of break time for the whole Tournament. A maximum of 5 minutes can be used per series in order to maintain fluency in the Tournament. In order to use the given break time, teams must contact an admin and inform them.
    Citizenship:
    Teams must obey all rules and behave like mature individuals. Teams must maintain communication with Admins and obey consequences for any action that breaks the rules.

    We advice that every team reads this entire thread, and especially the rules.

    4. Library
    Here are some links to our past Media Releases, which contain more info on some potential teams.


    Stay tuned for more incoming media!



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    5. Updates


    UPDATE 1.
    First off, I'd like to start with an apology to those who participated and viewed the qualifier. The main issues being with the fluidity of the even due to a bugged addon, and with the mistakes made about tuning changes that in turn affected the level of competition in the tournament.

    Although it seems unethical to change things from the qualifier to the finals, it was clear that there were severe mistakes made by administration. With this in mind, we do not want to have a Final stage of the tournament that is not to a certain standard. We hope that the quality of the qualifier is not a detriment to the quality that the Final will possess.


    The two qualifying teams are Rosetta Stoned and Birds

    Note:
    Birds was allowed to qualify due to their team not knowing that they had a banned player playing with them. We do not feel its fair to punish the other two members who played well.
    They will be forced to find another partner for the Finals.


    UPDATE 2.
    • Teams participating in the TOURNAMENT -including the 2 teams who qualify- will have to submit their final team comps by November 6th midnight.
    UPDATE 3.
    • Survival Hunters are ALLOWED but they MAY NOT use Flanking strike or Throwing Axes
    • All Enchants that require more than skill level 100 in enchanting to create are BANNED
    UPDATE 4.
    • Update 3 (above) no longer applies.
    • Survival Hunters are now BANNED for this Tournament.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    We Hope to see you all on NOVEMBER 13th!

    As have I done for many tournaments I have given something to the participants. Since this one is a level 20 tournament which consists of many Trial account holders I have chosen to not give away gold to the tournament winners. Instead I have chosen to give away a http://www.wowhead.com/item=140363/pocket-fel-spreader to tournament "MVP".
    This "Most Valueble Player" shall be elected by the participants only and the player does not necessarily have to be in the finals.

    Good luck everyone and have fun!!

    Heya, Voc. I think there are potentially some 2-person teams looking for 1 more.

    I'll see what I can do about getting any of them in touch with you.

    Thanks for your interest,

    Bop!

    Hey guys!

    It's awesome to see new teams being added to compete, that's fantastic.

    Just a reminder that the rules allow for 4 players per team, and 2 of those players to have 2 different classes listed.

    So if you want to maximize your comps, which you probably will to have better matchups against some potential counter comps, you should fully utilize that rule :)

    Also, double healer teams have been determined to be weak enough in 7.1 to finally be a viable comp choice, so you should be aware of that as a potential option to play as and against.
