Introduction

I have been thinking about hosting a North American battle tournament after Battle Innovation Tournament, but the announcement of 5-a-Side Cup 2013 gave me the idea to host the first ever North American-only 5-a-Side tournament.

I don't aim for the tournament to last very long, I'd rather it be a sort of bridge between BIT and the next battle tournament. A short group stage with playoffs thereafter would be enough. It would be best if the tournament didn't last any longer than 6-7 weeks, depending on the number of teams that register.

We'll be aiming to start Week 1 of the tournament's group stage on May 4th.

Thanks to John and Gelden for collaboration, to Captain Lust for the 5-a-Side idea, to ReneKB for influencing me to host the tournament and to Eternal and his Battle Innovation Tournament for match rules and map classifications.

Thanks additionally to Unicorn for his counsel and his fancy generating map/faction fixtures program thingy.

There's no rule against it. I hope to see two TMW teams, as in BIT, so I'm sure you'd be on one of them.

Though if not with TMW, European teams are welcome to register. Any potential EU teams will just have to keep in mind that the tournament is North American, so they'd have to play entire matches on NA servers.

Would recommend doing some heavy culling on the map pool. Don't worry about offending people, just go ahead and cull like half of those maps because seriously, expecting people to prepare for 15 different ones is unfair and likely detrimental to the interest the tournament will see. ~10 is ideal with the open mixed closed format.

I had thought it would be too many. I personally would have already taken out 3 or 4 of them that are in there now, but I thought I would leave it to the community and potential captains to decide which to remove. 10 sounds like a good number of maps. I'll probably put it to a vote at some point, or consult people directly.

That's fair. Personally I don't see the value in leaving the decision to people with any additional motivation beyond having a good, enjoyable and entertaining tournament. You have admins. Why not use them?

Just making suggestions anyway. I don't think a poll would be catastrophic or anything. Good luck with the tourney!

EDIT: Rounds should be 300 seconds. In EU we play 300 seconds for 8vs8 and it's often too long.

Would an EU team get east coast considering theirs no home/away system like the other tourney or?

Yes.
Since this is a North America tournament, teams with European players will have to play their matches on North American servers. However, North American teams are required to find the best possible server for both teams that's available in North America (in most cases, an east coast server). In the unlikely case of two teams made up mostly of European players facing off, the teams are free to use any server they agree upon.

EDIT: Rounds should be 300 seconds. In EU we play 300 seconds for 8vs8 and it's often too long.
I'd blame the 2 minute that become 5 between swaps and the 5 minute that become 10+ between map potty breaks you guys take.  Never seen such small bladders.     

300 seconds leads to the numerous drawn rounds the EU community has.  NA runs 360 and rarely has this happen.


But in game, every time I have contact with you, you're a giant d*ck. Act right in game and maybe I'll listen to what you have to say outside.
