  • Join the NA group Platypro with this link: battlenet:://starcraft/group/1/392070  And/or stay in the group channel for the duration of the tournament (simply should be called "Platypro").

  • You may play any race you choose for any round in the tournament as long as your opponent knows your race before going into vetoes.  You may choose random as your race.  If and only if both players agree to it, you may change your race mid-round (after vetoes). 
  • Double elimination bracket.
  • Rounds of 64 and before are Best of 1.
  • Lower bracket is Best of 1 until the lower bracket finals which are best of 3.
  • Upper bracket is Best of 3 until the finals which are Best of 5 with the winner of the upper bracket gaining a 1 game advantage.
  • Veto Format: ABBA BAC or alternatively if both players agree, they may veto in another format.
  • In the finals, the winner of the upper bracket gets 1 veto, and the winner of the lower bracket gets 2 vetoes.  The winner of the upper bracket has a 1 game advantage so there will only be 4 maps played total, chosen as ABAB.

  • If your in game name is different from your name here, go to the settings tab in challonge and edit name in this fashion: "ChallongeName ( name)".  
  • Walkover period is 15 minutes after brackets go live and 10 minutes after each additional round start in which a player can't find another player.
  • This walkover rule has exceptions if the bracket has not advanced far enough to cause wait times for other players.  Players may ladder in between games, and not be penalized if the winner of the waiting opponent would face a player who has *not finished their series*.  
  • Seeding is done by aligulac points.  If I can't find you on aligulac, likely you will be stuck with a low seed, unless I am otherwise informed.
  • Remember this tournament is simultaneously a ladder to bigger and better things, and a safe place against all the scary players, don't feel bad playing in it :).  
  • Smurfing is absolutely not allowed, as this tournament needs to be transparent as it is (with its core rule restricting by career earnings).  
  • If you do not message your opponent within 10 minutes and they are looking for you, and they are in the correct channel with the same name as on challonge, you have decided to forfeit your match.  
  • Payments will go out via matcherino, so please add yourself to the player list if you make the top 8.
  • If you forfeit any games in the finals, you will forfeit half the second place prize.  If you forfeit the entire finals, you will forfeit the entire second place prize.
