    We will be hand selecting up to FOUR teams that will receive direct team invites to this years event, one of which will be the Champions of the Twink Cup 2018. In the case that more than eight individual teams sign up for the event this year, all none invited teams will be required to participate in a wildcard qualifying event. Further details to this will be announced accordingly and in good time. Note: To be eligible to be a participant in the wildcard event, your team must be signed up before the signup deadline.


    Team Roster signups begin upon creation of this thread with immediate effect (May 8th 2019). The signups will close on the <insert date here> at MIDNIGHT EST. However, if at least EIGHT teams are not signed up by the deadline there will be a deadline extension for a MAXIMUM of ONE week.


    Below is a template of how it is required for your team leader to sign up your team's roster for the tournament:


    <TEAM NAME HERE>

    Name 1 (Team Captain) Indicated by a BLUE font text color

    Name 2 (Team Representative) Indicated by a GREEN font text color, this CAN be the team captain

    Name 3

    Name 4

    Name 5

    Name 6

    Name 7

    Name 8

    Name 9

    Name 10

    Name 11

    Name 12

    Name 13

    Team Captain's BATTLETAG. i.e TeamCaptain#1234


    Each name must have a hyperlink to the player's “main class” armory page.


    Every team must be comprised of a minimum of 10 and the maximum of 13 players, of which one person is the respectable Team Captain and the same person or another person is the designated Team Representative. If no team representative is indicated then it will be presumed that the Team Leader will be representing their team. The Team Captain is the person who is in charge of the team, the person who the team members believe owns/manages the team. The Team Representative is the person who will be nominated by the team to do the interviews and all other forms of broadcasted related aspects in representation of their team. Failure to sign up your team with the format that has been asked of you will result in your teams sign up to not be verified and thus your team will not be signed up. Please make sure that all required information is posted in your teams sign up post.


    Each teams captain must add of Resurgent ESB’s event managers to Battle Tag to enable us to queue the competing teams up using the spectator client. Refusal to add our event manager to Battle Tag will result in the team to not be eligible to take part in the event.

    The Rules:

    • If two competing teams are of the same faction, each team will play from both the Alliance and the Horde faction's side ONCE and in the event that the series comes to a 3rd deciding game, the faction side that each team will play on in that game will be determined by coin toss. In the finals, the faction’s side will alternate until the very last game of the series, which will be decided by coin toss. The first game of the series will be decided by the random faction selection generator that is implemented into the wargaming feature.
    • Any form of abuse towards the hosts, commentators or any of the authority will not be tolerated. It is each player's job to be able to communicate with respect and to be as cooperative as possible. This is deemed NWL etiquette and an individual or a team may receive cautions or any of the league's punishments depend on the severity of the abuse.
    • In the situation where a player on a team happens to get disconnected and unable to rejoin the game or “DDOSED”, each team is allowed to request a replay of that game ONCE per series. To be eligible for a replay the gates must not have opened as when the gates are open the game is considered underway and thus is not eligible to be restarted. If your team is in doubt that a final/number of players will be ready to play upon the opening of the gates then your team must initiate leaving the game before the gates open. If using your replay in this instance requires that more than one consecutive “leave and requeue” is necessary to have both teams inside the game with 10 people on each team that is permitted.
    • Upon request or necessity of a game restart/replay, the teams will keep requeueing until the teams factions are the same as what they was in the game that is being restarted/replayed.
    • Any behavior that would be considered strange, mechanically manipulative, or non-objective oriented is not permitted and may result in a penalty.
    • Deadly Boss Mods addon is not allowed.
    • No software violating Blizzard’s ToS is permitted.
    • Anyone can play any character on any account, as long as they are signed up on your roster. When you sign players up to your roster you are signing the player up and not just the character.
    • It is imperative that all teams that are in an up and coming game that is to be broadcasted have at least their Team Captain and their Team Representative use the Resurgent ESB Tournament Voice client. Mics in Discord are permitted to be set to ‘Mute’ but NOT to ‘Deafen’. (Discuss)

    General and Compositional Rules:

    • Maximum of a TWO(2) class limit.
    • Maximum of ONE(1) Restoration Shaman.
    • Maximum of a THREE(3) Healer limit.
    • Restoration Druids are NOT classed as a Healer.
    • Restoration Druids are NOT classed as a Stealth Class.
    • Maximum of a TWO(2) Stealth Class limit.
    • “On Use” Trinkets that are sourced, crafted or usable via professions are BANNED.
    • All characters participating in the event must be level nineteen(19).
    • Loot obtained through Satchel of Helpful Goods with a 35 or higher item level are BANNED.
    • Toys, any items in bags or anything other than Healthstones, Mage Food, Bandages and Battle Standards are BANNED.
    • Any items that require you to be level 20 or higher to obtain are BANNED.
    • Items that are sourced from the Battle For Azeroth expansion, through methods including but not exclusive to “world quests” or other non organic methods are BANNED.
    • The enchant '+13 Spell Power' to bracers is BANNED.
    • All Leg Enchants that are NO LONGER OBTAINABLE are BANNED.
    • All Shoulder Enchants that are NO LONGER OBTAINABLE are BANNED.
    • All Head enchants that are NO LONGER OBTAINABLE are BANNED.
    • The enchant '+12 Agility' to cloak is BANNED.
    • MS Pet (Mortal Strike) is BANNED.

    Note: These rules are NOT finalized. These rules will change with the discoveries of the meta and will be finalized when Resurgent ESB feel that the rules provide the most balanced, fair and competitive playing field for all competitors.

    The jumps shown in the video below are exclusively the jumps that are considered to be usable to a teams advantage that are permitted in the Twink Cup 2019. Any jump that is not in the video that has a major impact in either a strategical, or combat manner is strictly forbidden and will result in a warning or penalty in accordance to its severity.



    There are going to be numerous levels of severity when it comes to punishment when breaking the rules. The punishments will be split into three levels of severity. If a punishment of the same nature occurs three times throughout the course of the tournament, the next level of punishment will be awarded. This is based around the universally known “Three Strikes” rule.

    Game Loss

    Minor: If any individual does anything that is considered illegal that does not/did not have any direct impact on the direction, flow or result of the game will be given a warning. A warning is merely a slap on the wrist, however if a team collectively throughout the whole duration of the tournament gets THREE warnings it will result in a loss of the next available game to the team. Repeatedly offending at the warning level of severity will result in the tournament hosts to decide a sufficient punishment.

    Major: If any individual does anything that is considered illegal that has a direct impact on the direction or result of the game will instantly lose that specific game regardless of the actual victor. If a team happens to get THREE "Major" punishments collectively throughout the course of the tournament it will result in instant removal from the tournament. In the game where the final major offense has been committed, players will be expected to play out the rest of the game as normal.

    Disqualification

    If an individual, team or anyone with direct association to a team (i.e someone on the roster, whether they are in the game or not) performs an action that has an extreme effect on a game and it’s outcome will be punished by disqualification from the tournament. Things on this level of severity are things as follows:

    • Using game mechanics in a way that was unintended to be used in such a way, such as gaining a competitive advantage in the battleground
    • Use of third party software that is deemed against the Terms of Service that every player agrees to when playing World of Warcraft.
    • DDoS attacks or any form of harassment that can cause a player to not be able to take part in the game commencing.
    • Absolutely anything that breaks Activision Blizzard Entertainment's Terms of Service
    • Failure to comply with what is asked of you by the tournament organizers.

    Note: Punishment allocation will be entirely up to the discretion of the Resurgent ESB Twink Cup Event team, mentioned at the beginning of this post.

    The idea behind the Poll was to get an idea of when people who would likely be participating would prefer the event to take place. The date selected was only 1 vote below the date with the most votes, and my team can not do the date with the most votes unfortunately :(
