    Messtival! is back!


    [​IMG]



    The second edition of Messtival wil kick off on Saturday 7 November, at 6 PM CET / 12 PM EST / 9 AM PST. Check in will start an hour before that, so 5 PM CET / 11 AM EST / 8 AM PST.

    Messtival! 2 is a 1 day event. This is the time table for the rounds:

    Round 1: 6:00 PM - 6:50 PM

    Round 2: 6:50 PM - 7:40 PM

    Round 3: 7:40 PM - 8:30 PM

    R16: 8:45 PM - 9:30 PM

    QF: 9:30 PM PM - 10:30 PM

    SF: 10:30 PM - 11:30 PM

    F & 3rd place: 11:30 PM

    Note that all these times are in CET (Central European Time). EST is 6 hours behind, PST is 9 hours behind.

    A maximum of 32 teams can sign up for Messtival! 2.

    The tournament will start with a Round Robin group stage, which will lead to a top cut for a single elimination knockout stage.

    16 to 23 entries (minimum) → Top 8 cut

    24 to 31 entries → Top 12 cut [​IMG]

    (this image is how the round of 12 would run with exactly 24 entrants and is therefor subject to change)

    32 entries → Top 16 cut

    All the matches in the group stage will be best of 5. The same applies for the round of 12 / round of 16.

    The quarter finals, semi finals, finals and match for 3rd place will all be best of 7.

    To sign up for Messtival! 2, this is what has to be done:

    1. Provide a roster of your team with 3 to 8 players, using the following formatting:

    Name of team

    1.
    IGN of player 1 (Captain)
    NNID of player 1

    2.
    IGN of player 2
    NNID of player 2

    etc, etc

    You can post this either in the thread or on discord in the #register channel.

    2. Register your team to the tournament on Challonge with the link you will receive after completing step 1.

    We will use the Monthly Rankings for seeding.

    Thanks to this thread http://squidboards.com/threads/squidboards-monthly-rankings.10631/ by @BestTeaMaker .

    The 8 highest ranked teams that enter, will go in seeding pool 1. The next 8 highest ranked teams will go in seeding pool 2.

    When drawing the groups, we will draw a group head from pool 1, a second team from pool 2 and the other 2 teams at random. The current Bracket show the seeding pools, and not the actual groups!

    Note that this is assuming we reach the cap of 32 teams and there will be 8 groups of 4 teams. If the cap is not reached, we will use the same principle but the seeding pools will be smaller (equal to the amount of groups).

    The tournament will use Halo style rotation.

    All map and mode combinations have been put in a map pool and all SZ and TC maps (except for Saltspray Rig and Moray Towers) have been added to that map pool a second time. A sheet with the exact distribution can be found here: https://goo.gl/YtafOJ

    This map list will be randomized for every round to decide the map/modes played in that round. A document with screenshots of how the draw was done will be available upon request once the map list is released (somewhere this week).

    Every BO5 match will consist of the following games in a random order: SZ/TC/RM - SZ/TC
    Every BO7 match will consist of the following games in a random order: SZ/TC/RM - SZ/TC/RM - SZ or TC

    Communication will go through discord. Those of you that played in Messtival! are already on there. Everyone else, this is the link: https://discord.gg/0Y3fMDQtHtajVNVs

    The general channel is free to join for everyone! As a spectator you are free to join in and discuss the tournament while it’s running. You’ll also find the links to streams and the bracket on discord, so you can follow the hype live and discuss it with members of the competing teams as well as fellow spectators. Have a question or suggestion for the TO’s? The general chat is where you’ll find your answers (as long as it’s nothing too personal :p).

    The rule on DCs can be found in the complete rule set, which will follow shortly.

    A team is allowed to make 2 substitutions in a match. This does not include the substitution for a player that had a disconnect. That player may be substituted regardless.

    In between matches every team is free to substitute as much as they would like, as long as the starting 4 players are registered to the tournament as a part of that team. This rule still applies if your team ends up with a player short for any reason. You will either have to go in 3v4, or forfeit. While this sounds harsh, it’s the only way to ensure that the substitute rule will not be exploited.

    The lower seeded team has the privilege to decide who will host,

    1. team Nintendome
    2. The Octosquad
    3. C-
    4. IU Water
    5. TeamKaxe

    We try to find the best possible compromise for every timezone but we can't really ask Europeans to play late into the night on Sundays.

    Send it to me since the Challonge account is under my name, but for check-ins, Dylan will probably be the one who checks in

    Hi, great that you guys are signing up :)

    Roster changes can be made until 24 hours before the tournament starts, but you need to notify me if you do so. You can just do that by editing your post and do @Njok . Or you can tell me in a message.

    However, we do not use Skype so I highly recommend you join the discord server since you need to be there during the tournament anyway :)
