[Open] Ladder Tournament #1

Post by Cackfiend »

Greetings! I am excited to announce the first Ladder Tournament!

The goal of this tournament is to thoroughly test the Ladder Era https://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=49964 (an era developed specifically for competitive 1v1s) before version 1.0 comes out, and to drum up more interest in the competitive Wesnoth scene. If 1v1 balance is important to you then I highly recommend joining this tournament and discussing the matches as they will be used to further balance the Ladder Era.

Please visit here to register for the Ladder: https://wesnoth.gamingladder.info/

I will be using a Swiss Magic: The Gathering style tournament structure. That means a certain number of rounds based on how many players are registered.

This will be a 6 round tournament since we have over 32 players.

Games will be Best of 3 (BO3)

Round 1 will be completely randomized. In Round 2 the 1-0 players will play the other 1-0 players, while the 0-1 players will play the other 0-1 players. Round 3 will consist of the 2-0 players playing eachother, the 1-1 players against eachother, and the 0-2 players against eachother. etc etc

After the rounds are over the Wins and Losses will be assessed to determine the top 8 remaining players who will then continue to a sudden death style playoff.

If there are more than 8 players with the same Win/Loss ratio then the strength of their opponents and whether or not they won 2-1 or 2-0 in previous matches will determine who makes it into the top 8

Tournament Rules:

1. All matches will be Best of 3, except the final match which will be Best of 5.

2. All participants will have One Week to finish their matches with their opponent.

3. Ladder Era will be used for all matches. https://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=49964

4. Ladder Classic Maps will be used for the random map. No Mirror and Shuffle Sides is required. No time limit. Players may pick their faction/leader if they'd like. (Basically, normal ladder games.) Excessively long turns should be only when absolutely required. Have some common sense and decency here and don't abuse the no time limit rule.

5. All games will be reported to the Ladder. Ladder account required to participate in the tournament. https://wesnoth.gamingladder.info/

6. Game names should be named like this: "Ladder Tournament RD# player vs player". For example: "Ladder Tournament RD1 Cackfiend vs DrakeKing". Game results should be posted here. After the game result is posted a chat will open on the Ladder Discord to discuss the match https://discord.gg/Ud3sKzf but you can also discuss them here.

7. Cheating and Bad Sportsmanship will not be tolerated. Let's have a good time, everyone :D

8. Observers are required to be allowed. Feel free to mute any and all observers if you'd like.

9. All other issues or questions can be brought to me for clarification.

Registration is open for the month of January. The first week of matches will start February 1st.
