    Welcome to the 4th Iteration of Calamari Cup
    Saturday 13th of February 2016 at 5pm UTC
    4v4 pairs Round Robin

    Current signups: 82

    Welcome once more to another tournament! In order to celebrate this year's Valentines, we'll be hosting a 4v4 Round Robin tournament, but things will be a lot different this time! Teams will sign up as a pair, then get matched with another two players to form their own group of 4!

    Make sure to read thoroughly, as you'll need substantial knowledge of the rules


    [​IMG]

    Follow the Links/steps below to get your team signed up

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Leave a reply in the thread so we can get notified of your signup

    Signup Rules
    Teams must designate 2 players who will play as a team throughout the whole tourney. If a member needs to swap out with someone else before the tournament begins, both themselves and their teammate must inform one of the TO's in #registration-edits. During the tournament, a pair can swap out one of their members, but this swap is permanent and can be done only twice. If you need to permanently swap a player, notify a TO in #registration edits. A squad can register as many teams as they would like.

    If you are found to be playing for multiple teams at a time, you will be disqualified. Alternatively, once knocked out of the tournament, you cannot swap in for another team


    [​IMG]

    4v4 PAIRS: GROUPS TO ELIMINATION - - -
    Max of 32/64 pair signups
    • One representative from each pair must #check-in on the Discord server on tourney day
    • Beginning 5pm UTC
    • Check in starts 4pm UTC - Ends 5:10pm
    • Teams that do not check in by 5:10pm are DQ'd
    • Teams will go against each other in 4v4 formations
    • Teams will be announced 1.5 days before the tournament begins
    • The group of 4 should decide on one player to communicate and organize matches
      • This information is not required by the TOs
      • If teams have issues deciding, bring the situation to #helpdesk
    • If teams wish to communicate, they may do so in their own servers
    • Pairing teams will be done on the basis of TOs helped by BTM's rankings
    • Groups will then be decided randomly
    Round Robin Groups
    • Teams will be separated into groups of 4
    • Teams will find their opponents within their specific group channel (a, b, c, etc.)
      • 32 signups (16 teams) There will be 4 groups - 2 teams move on from each group
      • 64 signups (32 teams) There will be 8 groups - 1 team moves on from each group

    [​IMG]

    Disconnection rules

    • A team may only reset one game in a set due to a DC. If a second DC happens by the same team, the match is played on
    • A pair that has a member that DCs may swap out a player only twice and permanently
      • YOU MUST NOTIFY A TO OF THIS CHANGE IN: #roster-edits
      • Both pairs can swap out a teammate twice, leading to a total of 4 permanent swaps per team
    • When a match is replayed - players from both teams must use the exact same weapons and gear as last game. If the DC'd player decides to swap out, the player substituting in may pick any weapon of their choice
    • If you have any qualms with the rule - PM feedback to @Demiose or in the feedback thread after the tourney
    • In case of a dispute, we encourage players that DC to take a screenshot of their error, as there may be some cases where TOs overrule a DC and allow the match to be counted
    • There is a Discord phone app for uploading convenience
    Lag Rules
    • If there is a recurring case of a player who is accused of lag, they may be asked to measure their connection speed
    • They may perform this using the website "http://www.speedtest.net"
    • players may be forcibly removed from the tournament and subbed out because of a lag advantage
    • if you need help from a TO regarding this, bring the situation to the #helpdesk channel on Discord
    • Forcibly substituting a player will not count towards a pair's two permanent swaps.
    • Report lag issues at #helpdesk

    Players are expected to have an understanding of how to use Discord
    How it works: (For newer players)
    • The leftmost coloumn with icons are your servers. The Calamari cup server uses a pink squid as our logo
    • Using the left sidebar, you can scroll between different text channels used for different purposes (explained below) treat each text channel as a different 'group chat'
    • The server admins can give members custom colours. In our server, TO's are pink/red
    • The center of the screen is your chatlog
    • You can edit settings by selecting the gear icon on the bottom of the leftsidebar
    • You can message other players by clicking on their name and selecting the large blue Message button
    • Navigate through your direct messages by clicking on the top icon on the serverlist: (3 people icon)
    • The right sidebar displays the users who have joined the server
    Uses of each text channel:
    • #announcements: Used for communicating important messages to players, especially at tourney day
    • #links: provides quick access to important links
    • #overview: provides an overview of the CC rules. Refer to it if you need a quick refresher
    • #universal: The general text channel. All players - whether involved with the tourney or not- can chat
    • #report scores: where the results of each match should be posted
    • #check in: Where team captains must check in at the day. A simple "Team X checking in" will do
    • #helpdesk: If any disputes arise - or help is needed. Bring your questions here rather than PMing a TO
    • #roster-edits: Captains may edit their team roster by posting here before check in begins
    • #group_x: where teams should go to find their opponents within their specific group

    All players on the winning team will receive 3 months of Squidboards premium to commemorate their victory. Think of it as a personal gift as well as contributing to the growth of the Splatoon community!

    Hey everyone! We've recently decided that we might need some extra staff to keep our tourneys going with a large number of entrants. The 48 teams last tourney was slightly overwhelming us so we want to be prepared for the next time - or the one after that! If you feel you're interested in helping out, just shoot me a PM @Demiose , but I've gotta tell ya in advance that not everyone is going to be accepted. We'll probably recruit a hand or two.

    We're also interested in venturing into the realm of commentary streams beginning from CC5 onwards! Although we're not 100% on if we want to do this just yet, if we get enough staff we can make it a reality! Hit me up if you're interested, have good internet/computer, want to do commentary or otherwise.

    Thank you to the TO's [ @Dne1494 @XenoPixel @Burritoburger ]
    Special Thanks to @Blast

    If you want to do a 4v4 using 4 of you team members, you need to sign up 2 different squads comprising of members from your team, then have the good fortune of being paired together in the tourney. Although, I don't really recommended aiming for this goal, as the point of the tourney is to be paired with another team and working together :p
    As for whether or not this will be counted in the SMR... That is mostly to the discretion of those who run it. However, I have a feeling it won't count as squads in the tourney are a combination of two different teams, and the system goes off of individual team wins, so combo teams could easily skew some data.
