We are now in the Double Elimination Phase of the tournament!

Start scheduling those matches for the first round! I will be clarifying the times of this weekend's matches soon.

Use the channel "LFBattle" or "Dust Tourney" to schedule your matches. Every corp in the tourney should have at least 1 Rep in the "Dust Tourney" channel.

AttentionPlease be aware that one member of each team in each match will need to record the match so the results of each match can be verified.
-If you feel your corporation cannot meet this requirement please contact me at Kane Spero in game or kain.spero@gmail.com and we can discuss your situation. I may be able to use screenshots of the end match scoreboard to verify results.

AttentionI need CEOs Interested in sponsoring a wildcard team to send an in-game mail to Kane Spero or just email me at kain.spero@gmail.com

  • Interested corps can also reply in this thread to be added to the list.




-You need to have "Dust Tourney" In the subject so I can spot it easily.

Since I am awarding the prizes and will be helping promote the tournament Imperfects and its sister corps IMPSwarm and Internal Error will not be fielding a Corp Team for this tourney.

***********************



PHASE ONE: OPEN ROUND ROBIN Feb 2nd to Feb 15th

Corporations participating in the tournament will earn seed points for corp battles during the Round Robin. The specific rules will be explained in a separate post and linked here. 12 Teams will be seeded along with 4 wildcards.

Round-robin rules: https://forums.dust514.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=55607&find=unread


PHASE TWO: DOUBLE ELIMINATION TOURNAMENT Feb 16th to March 9th

http://www.dust514stats.com/bracket.cfm

The seeded and wildcard teams will advance through the brakets until one team is victorious as the Open Beta Tournament Champion. We will be working with participating corporations to facilitate corporations competing from as many time zones as possible.

While we will be flexible within reason should a corporation not schedule their matches in a timely fashion they will be penalized with a loss and may be disqualified from the tourney and may be replaced my a Wildcard team.

Special Announcements




***RULE CLARIFICATION***

RINGERS

As mercernaries we should be able to be mercs on the corporate and individual level. During the Open Round-Robin matches with ringers will be counted towards qualifying as long as there are no more than two ringers in a given battle.

Ringers from a different corporation at the time of a given match forfit their eligibility for the idividual tourney-wide community prizes, but will still be eligible for prizes given for the recording contest for any footage that they submit. Video material sent by ringers will also make the compteting corporation eligible for the seed bonus points.

Kills and warpoints made by ringers will not be counted to a team's (Corporation's) total for stats purposes.

RINGERS IN THE DOUBLE ELIMINATION PHASE OF THE TOURNAMENT WILL RESULT IN DISQUALIFICATION FOR THE COMPETEING CORPORATION.

In order to NOT be considered a Ringer for the Double Elimination Phase of the tournament each member must be part of their competeing corporation PRIOR to downtime on the 15th of February. Employment history Eve-side will be used to resolve any disputes.

*****************

Current Match Submissions

Only two matches are allowed to count for a coporation in the tournmant against any given opponent (Corporation) during the Open Round-Robin. Zion's victory at Akadagi against SI is invalidated due the entire scoreboard not being recorded, but this allows the match on 2/5 to be counted. (Otherwise this would exceed to two-count rule). Unless a corroborating image is sent in by SyNergy gaming for the 2/5 match this match is also invalid due to the entire scoreboard not being recorded.

Any images or recordings of the final score board that I cannot read will NOT be eligible for qualifying points. You must include the names, corp, kills, and warpoints for everyone in the match in the recording or photo. Please try to make the focus on the images as sharp as possible. Any images or videos too large to link can be sent directly to newedensports@gmail.com but must NOT exceede 20 MB in size.[/quote]

The short answer is yes.

I'm going to be working with a team to see if we can implement both Eve and Dust side betting. I think the guys can pull it off Eve-side, but I think the market mechanics may not be mature enough to pull it off Dust side though.

Who do you think? All corp tournaments are is an ISK farm- we should've gone with either the death race or random-team tournament.

Yeah. It doesn't feel right hosting and competing at the same time on the corp level.

Also prize information announced!

Just a reminder, the message needs to be sent to KANE Spero (my Eve side). If you happen to send it directly to me I may be nice and forward it along to Kane. He might not like that though.

Instead of just streaming, how about just the ability to record it? I.e record the last 5 mins or so, that way people with not so good comps or what not can still play/be eligible if they have an HD PVR etc.

This could be an option. I know people also may be hesitant to stream a live match due to the tactical information that might be given away doing so.
