    Hello all!

    @Damnbrolol (Cole) and I have decided to put a small cash prize together to get a SL20 3v3 tourney going for NA. Hopefully this will boost the participation in the bracket and bring additional life, entertainment, interest and competition to the bracket!

    The date is TBD for now, we're first seeing if there will be enough interest and participation for the tourney and second with TBC right around the corner we figured we'd wait until after it releases and the hype calms down a little bit for it. This will also give people some time to read over the rules and get some new toons, comps and teams going. The tourney will most likely happen in 9.1, the rule sets are not set in stone given more or less changes will be needed for 9.1, once we have more teams officially signed up though the sooner we can put the tourney into motion!

    In order to ensure fun, fair, competitive and interesting gameplay to watch and play; Cole and I have agreed to the following rule set after much discussion. We tried to have as little rules as possible to keep it simple and maximizing participation while also keeping it fair and balanced.

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

    -Class/Spec Bans-
    • Hunter (Everyone saw this one coming, there was talks about just banning Survival but after more thought we decided to ban Hunters in general because all 3 specs kits are loaded compared the rest of the dps specs at 20. They also put out the most dps very easily with a lot less effort required. Hunter 3v3 WGs make the games very quick and boring to play and watch. Also if we did allow hunters, every team will run some sort of Hunter comp and the teams who do not will have a lot harder of a time finding success. Hunter Comps vs. Hunter Comps vs. Hunter Comps would get stale as well! Apologies for the inconvenience for all you hunters out there, we hope you understand!)
    • All Tank Specs
    -Item Bans-
    • All weapons and gear (including trinkets) with a equip, use or chance on hit effect that cause any form of CC (slow, root, incap, stun etc.)
    • All weapons and gear (including trinkets) over ilvl 34
    • All weapons and gear (including trinkets) that are now unobtainable in game (Grandfathered)
    • Additional item bans: Destiny
    • No Sader swapping!! (Getting Crusader Proc then swapping to another weapon with Crusader to get 2 Crusader Procs)
    -3v3 Composition Rules-
    • 2 DPS 1 Healer comps
    • No Hunter or tank specs
    • No class stacking
    -Match/Series/Bracket Rules-
    • Bracket will be made with challonge.com
    • Double Elimination
    • BO5, BO7 Finals
    • First map is Nagrand (mystery locked comps)
    • Winning team of match locks comp in first for the next match
    • Losing team of match then picks the next map and lock comp second for opportunity to counter comp
    • Teams breaking rules forfeit the match where the rule was broken but can continue the series
    • Disconnects will restart the current match with same map and comps.
    • 1st Place Award: $350, 2nd Place Award: $150
    • XPOFF Badge Award in the works for all the players on the 1st place team!
    -Team Rules-
    • 3 or 4 Player Teams (if you want a substitute or not)
    • Any class available to the player is allowed to be played except hunter/tank specs and so long it follows the 3v3 Composition Rules.
    • Aiming for a minimum of 8 teams and a maximum of 16 teams. Also trying for an even number of teams to avoid free bys.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If there is a lot of interest and participation for this tourney, Cole and I can host another in the future potentially with a $1000 prize pool and after the results of this one we can better narrow down the rule set less or more if needed.

    If you are interested in signing up, comment on this post with your team name and your 3-4 player names. Teams will be signed up on a first come first serve basis.

    If you do not have a team but are interested in playing, comment your name and classes down below and see if you can put a team together!

    You don't need to be in full ilvl28 greens to compete!! All of my toons only have a few pieces of ilvl28s some even just one or two pieces and they perform just fine!

    If this attracts more players to the bracket, we could host 10v10 tourneys as well!

    Tell your friends, gear a homie, thanks!

    *Also looking for someone to stream/host/commentate the tournament in an official and professional manner, let me know! (Whatever happened to Blackout and NWL?)*

    This is awesome, guys! I'm decently sure my vet has gear that fits the rules, so I'll try to wrangle a team.

    If I cant, I'd be happy to help set up spectator matches, stream, etc.

    It will be sad not bringing my Hunter into this (though I understand your reasons), but I look forward to competing regardless!

    It was a tough decision, but eliminating one class to make room for a lot of other inventive comps and different classes and specs will be worth it!

    It will allow for more variety in the tournament! No hate for hunters but in a competitive environment there just a bit too over tuned.

    Support the idea to ban hunters as a hunter. I also think that if it wasn't for the ban, 3v3 would likely become 2+hunter v 2+hunter, that's much less variety. Plus most kills would be done thanks to hunter pressure so they would look mostly similar. All specs, too. If the variety will turn out to be a fake one, as in, if most teams will now be running warriors or, I don't know, warlocks, no big harm done, that would be a useful data point.

    Good luck, will be watching the games with interest, let the best team win.

    Just playing man I hear where you are coming from, surv and bm are just so oppressive right now. At least Mm has rpedictable damage. Would you consider exceptions for range only surv? (still surprisingly strong because of mastery) Regardless I am looking forward to it even though I wont be able to play ( my main only has ilvl 40+ artifacts and I dont want to make a new priest right now)

    Thank was one of the harder decisions, but having roughly double the stats hurts competition a bit. do you have disc, holy, and shadow all that high? could always get a a different specs, or even BC dung weps maybe!

    I would definitely be interested in this 100%. My main is a Hunter but I definitely understand why they're banned haha. I'm working on a few other classes and once a got used to them I would love to be a part of it!!

    Willing to help in any way! (either by signing up a team or helping with coordination)

    I don't know how you're planning to enforce weapon switching mid battle but reach out on discord and we can set some shit up. I've been rolling around some ideas with the TF guys so lets see if we can collaborate.

    Unless they roll with a weapon that has the exact same stam, itd be noticeable.

    Good point
    Does this also mean set bonuses (Desolation, Wastewalker procs) are also banned?
