Hello Xplorers Fans,
We are proud to invite you to our:
XPLORERS C&K SPRING TOURNAMENT 2021
We are looking forward to fair and exciting games.
AsoBrain Tournament Manager
For more information:
The entire tournament will be played with Cities & Knight games to various points. Games shall be played in the 'Tournament 1' lobby, these games will be automatically recorded and will not count for your personal ranking.
You may sign up 1 entry per house hold. If you wish to sign up with more then one name from one house hold, please contact the Tournament Manager with an explanation as to why you should be allowed. If we have reasonable suspicion you are entering with 2 or more names without approval, all entries may be disqualified.
Based on approximately 100 contestants, the tournament will consist of 5 rounds. In the first two rounds (this may vary, based on number of contestants) the best 2 players will advance. In all other rounds, only the winner will advance.
Each round, contestants will be placed in named groups of 3 (or 4 if needed) players. In the first round, groups will be based on time zone (placed together) and 2020 year ranking (mixed up). 3 matches are to be played in a row with the following specifications (if all agree, in custom order):
Rounds will be scheduled as a group within a larger time frame to accommodate groups with players from completely different time zones.
Scheduling will take place on our forums in the topic created for your group. As a group you will schedule a date and time to attempt to play all 3 games in a row. During the round, please check your group topic at least once a day to complete the scheduling as quickly as possible. If you are unable to schedule within the given time frame, the tournament organization may disqualify the player that is most accountable for the delay.
Each player in the group will post their available hours for every day of the entire week like the following example:
|Date||Amsterdam time||Optional Timezone|
|Monday April 25||19:00h - 05:00h||10am - 8pm PDT|
|Tuesday April 26||20:00h - 03:00h||11am - 6pm PDT|
|Wednesday April 27||18:00h - 05:00h||9am - 8pm PDT|
|Thursday April 28||19:00h - 05:00h||10am - 8pm PDT|
|Friday April 29||19:00h - 05:00h||10am - 8pm PDT|
|Saturday April 30||19:00h - 05:00h||10am - 8pm PDT|
|Sunday May 1||19:00h - 05:00h||10am - 8pm PDT|
This way you can easily find matching dates and times for all players, even after a first attempt fails. Posting you 'could perhaps play tomorrow around 5pm' is insufficient and inefficient because when it fails, the process will have to start all over again.
Each group will play 3 matches as specified for each round. For each match:
The winner of the tournament will receive a golden Xplorers cup icon and eternal glory in our hall of fame.
