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

    SCL 16: SAI Qualifier

    Saturday May 14th at 1 PM EDT


    [​IMG]

    We are proud to host the first qualifier for the Splatoon Anniversary Invitational. Teams will compete across four qualifiers, including this tournament, to earn a spot in the final invitational tournament on May 28th. Further information can be found in the thread for that event.

    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

    • Tournament Structure
      • This is a single elimination tournament. As such, a team will be fully eliminated once they have lost one set.
      • Sets will be best 3 out of 5 until the semifinals, at which point they will be best 5 of 7
      • Gametypes will be chosen Halo-style, and will be published on the day of the tournament
      • The bracket is not final until specifically stated otherwise by the staff
    • Team Expectations
      • Team Composition
        • Teams are to play no more than 8 unique players over the course of the tournament
        • Teams may field a team of less than 4 players if necessary, but it is not suggested
        • A player may not play for more than one team in the tournament
        • We do not require teams to post a roster
      • On the day of the event
        • At least one representative of the team is expected to be on the Discord server during the event
        • Check-in will begin 15 minutes prior to the posted start time for the tournament. Any team who has not checked in by 15 minutes after the posted start time will be disqualified
        • Teams do not need to wait for their matches to be called. As soon as an opponent is available, they are to begin the match
          • As such, teams are expected to check the bracket themselves for their matches
        • Teams are expected to be ready to play at all times from the beginning of the tournament until they are eliminated
        • Teams should contact their opponent promptly once both teams have finished their previous matches in order to begin the next match as quickly as possible
          • If you are unable to find the representative for your opponent, check the roll call channel to see who checked them in
            • If you still cannot find your opponent or are not getting a response, talk to the TOs and we will try to get you connected with them
        • All members of a team are expected to be courteous and respectful to their fellow competitors
    • Connection Rules
      • Disconnections
        • If a team has a player disconnect during a game, they may immediately stop playing and call for a replay
          • The match must be replayed with the same players and weapons
            • In the event that the player who disconnected is unable to return to the game, another player may be substituted, but must use the same weapon as the previous player.
          • Each team may only call for a replay once per set, or twice in a best of 7 set
            • If a player disconnects within the first 15 seconds of play, the match may be restarted without using the team's one allotted replay
          • If a team does not immediately stop playing after a disconnect, it is assumed they do not want a replay
        • If a player disconnects soon before the end of the match or when the other team can reasonably be called the victor, the game will not be replayed
          • Final discretion belongs to the TOs in this situation
        • If players from both teams disconnect at approximately the same time, the match may be restarted without using either team's allotted replay
      • Lag
        • Teams are asked to play through lag if at all possible
        • If you feel that the lag is unbearable, contact the TOs, who will deal with the situation accordingly
          • The TOs reserve the right to require a team to take speed tests, and take appropriate action based on the results
          • If you have video evidence of the lag, that would help your case
    • Other
      • The TOs reserve the right to make alter or add rules during the tournament based on their judgement
    Qualifier Points

    Qualifier Points for the Splatoon Anniversary Invitational will be awarded to teams based on their performance in this tournament. The points will be distributed as such:

    1st -- 40 pts
    2nd -- 20 pts

    17th-32nd -- 2 pts
    32nd... -- 0 pts​

    Note, only your two best placements in the quals will count for the invitational. You should still enter as many as you can to Maximize your chances at good results.

    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.

    Don't forget to check out the other qualifiers too you guys if you haven't already. That way you can get as many points as possible.
