    Squids and Squidettes:
    We at SCL are proud to announce our fourteenth Splatoon Community League tournament-

    SCL 15: Planet RoboSquid

    Saturday April 30th at 1 PM EDT
    Format: Double Elimination (Most of losers is Bo3)

    We're back to bring you one more installment in our Biweekly Tournament Series. Put your skills to the test once again in this tournament on Saturday April 30th at 1:00 PM EDT!

    How to Sign up
    Sign up with Challonge Teams Here: Link

    Then, you can leave a post in this thread telling us that your team has signed up, as well as the discord username of the representative who will be present on the discord channel during the tournament. This is mostly just to be able to doublecheck who's signed up or not in case something goes awry, and to reference discord representatives.

    If for whatever reason the links do not work, let the staff know.

    Rules For Signups
    Team members may only be on one team per tournament. Teams found to be running the same player will be approached and questioned. If the problem persists, then disciplinary action will be taken, possibly resulting in disqualification and/or in bans from future competitions. This will usually not be resorted to unless teams are found to be non-compliant. If members are found lying to play on multiple teams, they individually will be banned and the teams will receive losses for any games they used said players in, even if those matches are already over and entered. You know who you are

    every team may only play up to 8 different team members, and must have at least 4 team members, including the team captain. Squads with more than 8 players must split these players into different teams. EX: Splatoon community league has 16 people, so we would make two teams: SCL1 and SCL2, for example. These teams would be seperate.

    How the Tournament will be Run

    On April 30th at 1 PM EDT, teams are expected to be prepared to play. Discord representatives will need to be online in the Discord chat. where the TOs will be communicating with them. You can find a link to the Discord server at the bottom of this post.

    Teams will be asked to play against each other as laid out in the Challonge bracket which will be provided slightly ahead of time. This tournament is not taking place over an extended period of time. As such, teams are expected to remain active until they are knocked out of the tournament. If a team is not responsive when their match is set to be played, they will be disqualified from the tournament.

    if your opponent is unresponsive, then do not delay and let the TO's know about the situation. Do not leave the tournament for extended periods of time unless necessary or unless you have a long break, and please let us know if you have to leave.

    Games are played as a best of 5 set, until the top 4, which will be played as best of 7 sets.

    We will be using Halo-Style Map Rotations in this tournament. In short, maps and modes are predetermined ahead of time. For more information on Halo Map Rotations rules, check out this thread. The list of maps to be used in this tournament can be found below.

    You may also sub up to 2 players from your roster in between games, every time. You may of course sub in less than that or no one at all.

    Gametype List will be posted on discord in the tournament maps channel on the day of the tournament.

    Connection Rules
    >If a team has at least one person drop in the course of the match, then that team may stop playing immediately and call for a replay. The same setup and player list must be used for the replay, except in the case where a person cannot reconnect for whatever reason, then that person may be swapped out. Matches can only be replayed in this manner once by each team, so any D/Cs in matches after that one must be played out. If the match ends very quickly afterwards so that it is very clear it wouldn't have made a difference in the results, then this rule cannot be invoked. If a team continues to play after a D/C it will be presumed they did not intend to call for a replay.

    Also, if a large amount of people randomly D/C from both teams, both teams must stop playing and a replay will be played. This replay does not count as either team's replay.

    We don't expect too many D/Cs in the tournament, and will be watching for teams that alledgedly D/C an overly large amount. If possible also get what proof you can in case a dispute is had.

    We also need every d/c related replay to be reported directly to us so that we are aware of what happened, and so we can make sure no team seems to be abusing this rule round to round.

    If your game is having lag, play on. If you want to report extremely laggy to the point of being unplayable games, after you get the evidence you need, such as video, if you have to set it to upload or something please continue and finish the set anyway. In most situations we will make you play on, and this saves time. Switch hosts, check your internet connections and do whatever else you can to try to alleviate the problem on your own as well.

    Reporting Problems or Asking Questions
    Players will be expected to provide evidence of any bad sportsmanship, rule breaking, or otherwise, preferably through screenshots taken with a phone or from a livestream or something. Depending on the infraction, punishments will be given out as needed.

    If you are caught lying or faking evidence, you will be disqualified, and the team captain will be banned indefinitely from SCL and all our future tournaments, unless another player(s) is proven to be the one(s) behind it, in which case he/she/they will be banned instead. Everyone else on the team will receive a warning for a certain period of time. Methods will be used to check accounts we expect to be alts of banned players. Bans will extent to NNIDs and IGNs as well, and a banlist will be made as soon as the first person is banned. Infraction history will also be kept, and worse sentences may be given out in the future if the player has been found to be a repeat offender.

    List of TOs for this tournament:
    @Aweshucks - Head TO
    @Fightersword - Head TO
    @WydrA -- Assistant Head TO
    @Flying_Tortoise - Sub TO/commentator

    Hello! I would maybe be about 15-20 minutes late. Is that a problem? I could maybe have someone fill in for me on discord before then but... I might not be able to. Is there any way I could still be in the tournament?

    that is too late. You would be DQ'd

    We still do that a lot. Like, literally SCL 14 was SE. Just nobody signed up for it. We'll have another one soon.

    We'll consider it.

    So, if squads can be up to eight people, but we can only play four at once... what happens to the four people who aren't playing that round? Are they backups? Or do the members of a squad rotate with each fight?

    basically you can run up to 8 *total*, meaning the other 4 are essentially backups as needed. Most refer to them as subs, but you can sub them in between games and between rounds as needed. So long as you don't go past 8 total people, you're good to go.
