It's very pity. If one player would take 10 minutes for each turn - and other player would fall asleep - is that would be supposed as cheating? :)

How this supposed to be? If both players want same faction, for example? Who would choose first?

And is it possibly to play w/o spectators?

And why play Hornshark Island... to test normal units?

Thanks for the questions. I addressed two of them in the original post.

As far as the chance for a mirror: if both players want to pick the same faction then that is their choice. I highly doubt it will be an issue.

I'd consider putting even a long time limit (like 10 mins) instead of none whatsoever. It would be very annoying if someone continously took 30 mins for their turn.

I wonder why it's in Ladder Classic Maps. Ruphus Isle is so much better.

You can set "No Mirror" in game settings, it's not an issue.

there might be a turn that takes more than 10 mins in a large complicated game. if someone is abusing the no time limit rule by sitting there for an excessive amount of time even though they arent doing anything then they can report the game to me and i can take a look. I've seen too many good games ruined by timers.

Ruphus Isle isnt in classic because it came into the game much later than the original maps and wasnt created/balanced by Doc Patterson iirc. It wasn't even discussed during the Ladder Map Council days. That being said, it is a solid map, but won't be used for this tournament.

Hornshark Island is extremely different than what it used to be. The 6 units you start with makes things interesting. I would need some more feedback on what people think about this map for competitive play in order to justify excluding it from the random map pool. I personally have never played it since they made the changes.

No Mirror doesnt work when both people pick the same faction :)

Please register myself too. For the next week I can only play after midnight (europe-ish time), I hope that doesn't disable me. I guess if it becomes a problem I will just suffer the respective defeat, not the end of the world :)

This tournament starts on 1st February.

@Cackfiend Based on my previous tournament experience, I believe it's worth requesting participation confirmation in the last week of registration to avoid multiple walkovers in the first round.

Hey this looks fun, I'm in :).
Just to double-check I understand the structure: we play ~5 randomly assigned players, then get seeded into a DE tree based on results?

After re-viewing the initial post, I come to say it is best if my registration is removed from the tournament, as I willl have highly irregular availability and will probably just mess the schedule up. I will try to watch games of the tournament though, and still wish best of luck to all the players, and the organizer. Thanks again and sorry for the inconvenience.

OK, if you change your mind let me know. The tournament starts Feb 1st and you have a week to complete each match.
