RULE CHANGE


Players are now required to play with the same unique Player ID for the duration of the tournament, and this ID must match what is on their team's roster.
Quote
§ 13 Player Names, Tags, and IDs

(1) Players must play with the name they are signed up under in the team roster. This follows the three strike policy (warning, one-match ban, ejection).
(2) Players must wear the team tag during official matches. This follows the three strike policy (warning, one-match ban, ejection).
(3) Players must have the same unique Player ID that is on their roster. A player caught using multiple IDs will be ejected from the tournament, and any group of players that are caught sharing an ID will all be ejected from the tournament.
Thanks to Aeronwen for promptly bringing this to our attention.

MAP POOL & TIE BREAKER CHANGE


Nord Town has been replaced by San'di'boush.

Factions for tiebreakers will be randomized for the quarterfinals, semifinals, and grand final. A single faction will be randomized for each stage, and will be used by both teams in the event of a tiebreaker.
Quote
§ 18 Tie Breaker
(1) With a relative scoring system, ties are acceptable during the qualifying stage. As such, no tiebreakers are required during qualifying matches.
(2) Due to the nature of the main event, no match may end in a draw. Should a match end in a tie after the regular time, a tie breaker must be played.
(3) The tiebreaker must be played on Winterburg. Both teams will pick a faction from the list in Appendix c, these picks can be mirrored. Both teams will play the same faction, randomly selected beforehand by tournament staff for the current stage of the main event. The format will be a first to 3 set, with the winner of the set taking the overall victory.

QUALIFIERS FORMAT & SCHEDULING REQUIREMENTS


The qualifier stage format has been decided. All teams in the qualifiers will be randomly assigned to one of four groups, two of which are in the red division and two of which are in the blue division. Each group will have round robin-style scheduling for matchmaking. Teams will play once against every other team in their group on random, predetermined map & faction fixtures. The fixtures are set at the division level, so the red division will have one set of fixtures for each round of the qualifiers, and the blue division will have another set of fixtures. The top team from each group will advance to the main event, and their seed will be determined by their performance relative to the other group stage winners. Because there will be five teams per group, every team will receive a bye for one round of the qualifiers. As such, there will be five rounds of fixtures and each team will play four matches total during the qualifiers.

Quote
§ 4 Qualifiers Format

(1) The qualifiers will take place between Thursday, 16th August 2018 and Wednesday, 29th August 2018.
(2) Format and schedule depend on the number of sign ups. The tournament administration will inform all participants after the sign ups have closed on how to proceed. Teams should expect to play approximately four qualifying matches in the stated time period.
(2) The qualifiers follow a group stage round-robin format. Teams are randomly assigned one of four groups, and the groups are separated into red and blue divisions. The divisions have separate fixtures for each round of the qualifiers. There will be five rounds per group, but each team will receive a bye for one fixture during the qualifiers (i.e. there will be 5 rounds, but each team will only play 4 matches). The top team from each group will advance to the main event, with their seed determined by their performance relative to the winners of the other groups.

...

§ 6 Scheduling

(1) All main event matches must take place on the day and time scheduled by the tournament administration. The tournament administration reserve themselves the right to change the schedule.
(2) Teams are not allowed to play main event matches before or after said day and time unless they are explicitly permitted to do so by the tournament administration.
(3) During the Qualifiers, teams are expected to play two matches per week. If a team fails to play two matches within a week (measured incrementally from the beginning date of the qualifiers) then they must provide evidence of a good-faith attempt to schedule their match. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the match. Any match that remains unplayed at the end of the qualifiers will be considered forfeit by one or both teams (depending on aforementioned attempts to schedule).

TIE BREAKER CHANGE


Tie breakers will now be used during the qualifiers. See below:
Quote
§ 18 Tie Breaker

(1) Due to the nature of the tournament, no match may end in a draw. Should a match end in a tie after the regular time, a tie breaker must be played.
(2) Tiebreakers during the main event must be played on Winterburg. Both teams will play the same faction, randomly selected beforehand by tournament staff for the current stage of the main event. The format will be a first to 3 set, with the winner of the set taking the overall victory.
(3) Tiebreakers during the qualifiers must be played on Winterburg. Format is a first to 3 set, with the winner taking the overall victory. Both teams will play the same faction, which must be faction A from map A for their fixture.

RULE ADDITION


Teams are now explicitly permitted one banner change during the qualifiers. Teams are now explicitly not permitted to change their team name once the qualifiers have begun. A hard deadline has been set on roster changes.
Quote
§ 8 Team Rosters

(1) Every team must provide the tournament administration with a roster consisting of eight to ten players and their respective in-game IDs at least 24 hours before the first qualifying match. Teams that fail to do so are not eligible to play in the tournament and will be eliminated.
(2) Teams may make changes to their roster until their first qualifying match has been played, or midnight BST Saturday, 18th August, 2018 (which comes first). After that, no roster changes are allowed. This includes player transfers and additions.
(3) In the event of a team dropping below the minimum number of players (8) while the tournament is on-going, an emergency roster addition is allowed, provided that the new player has not yet played in the tournament. If a team drops below the minimum number of players again, then they will be disqualified.
(4) Teams are not allowed to change their team name or tag once the qualifiers have begun.
(5) Teams are permitted to change their team banner one time during the qualifiers, which must be approved by an administrator.

Odin, Eduard & Nessa Banned


All three players were found to be using illegal modifications to gain an advantage in a public Warband server. Valid proof was provided to the administration and we are confident in exposing them. They are banned for the duration of the tournament and possibly from all further BladeCast events (pending review).

Eduard is removed from referee status.

ID 3451640 is also banned from tournament servers for joining a team (spectating) without being on either team.

RULE CHANGE, TYPO FIX, AND SPECTATOR LIST


Teams are now permitted to use their emergency substitution at any point (not just when they drop below 8 players) but are still limited to one for the duration of the tournament. To clarify, the emergency substitution is for your team roster and not for replacing a player who has crashed in a match.
Quote
§ 8 Team Rosters
...
(2) Teams may make changes to their roster until their first qualifying match has been played, or midnight BST Saturday, 18th August, 2018 (whichever comes first). After that, no roster changes are allowed. This includes player transfers and additions.
(3) In the event of a team dropping below the minimum number of players (8) while the tournament is on-going, an emergency roster addition is allowed, provided that the new player has not yet played in the tournament. If a team drops below the minimum number of players again, then they will be disqualified.
(3) Teams are permitted one emergency substitution for the duration of the tournament. This substitution may be used at any time outside of a match to add or replace one player on the team's roster. In the event of a team dropping below the minimum number of players (8) while the tournament is on-going, they must use their emergency roster substitution. Any team with fewer than 8 players and no remaining emergency substitution will be disqualified.
...

Finally, all approved spectators must be listed in match results posts, and it is strongly recommended that they be included in match announcement/booking posts. Otherwise, these spectators risk being banned from all tournament servers. If they are members of a team in the tournament, then they are subject to the tournament rules regarding spectators.

REMATCHES


After a brief discussion among the tournament administration, it has been decided that teams which defaulted in the qualifiers will be granted the opportunity for a rematch for matches they defaulted in, granted the following conditions are met:
  • All of their matches for the qualifiers are completed.
  • The qualifier deadline has not been reached (24:00 BST Wednesday, 29th August 2018).
  • The opposing team's captain agrees to the rematch.
The result of the rematch will be considered the final result for the match. If a team fails to show up for the rematch, then the original result stands.
