You also may have seen in the recent article that togood2222 created a series of videos about the changes in each of these maps between version 8.11 and 9.0. Here's the Pearl River video in case you haven't gotten to see it yet:

Is there any way we can get a starting time frame that does not interfere with people that have to work for a living?

Is there any way to make these prizes actually worth while? 100 gold a player might as well be 10x standard first aid kits.

So you put Malinovka and Serene Coast in with Severogorsk so that you could run Pearl River on it's own?

It's actually pretty fair considering no one has any heavily tested strats

Now that registration is complete, here's the look ahead at the tournament:

 

There are 45 teams which met the entry requirements. Since 40 teams move on to round 2, that means that only 5 teams will be eliminated tonight (and the other 40 will earn 1,000). Tonight's matches will be used in seeding the groups for tomorrow night, when only the top 2 in each division will make it through to the playoffs, so play your best to get the easiest road to success tomorrow night.

 

Tonight's matches begin at 5:00 PM PST (8:00 PM EST)

Thanks for the brackets. Good fights to everyone who showed up last night. It's unfortunate that teams not showing up are still in the tournament on day 2..... Should probably be a rough percentage of the initial teams that make it to the second group stage, then a set number go to the 3rd day. Otherwise we still have to deal with 2 or 3 noshows, which is a waste of everyone's time. Alternatively, up the prizes for the top 16 or something, and more clans will apply and show up. I don't mean to complain really, not you admins' fault people don't show up.

That or make it so less teams advance to round two.  If you can make it to round 2 without even showing up that is sad.

Usually this isn't an issue. This tournament had lower registration than the others in this series have, which led to this happening. If it becomes a bigger issue, it could become percentage based or have a minimum point requirement in the future.

The round robin stages have come to an end, and it's on to the playoffs.

 

Group 1 saw [GANGZ] make their first attempt at an Exhibition, however they fell just short to the mainstay clan [OTTER] and returning playoff competitors [D-O-S].

 

We had another very close race in Group 2, ending in a tie for 2nd place. Returning champion [NTR] showed their dominance again by winning every fight in both rounds up until now, while there was a tie between [SG] and [MYTH_]. Due to the head-to-head tiebreaker, SG moves on to the playoffs for the first time.

 

With [ANVIL] hot on their tails the whole time, we saw two former champions make their way through Group 3. [HAVOK] and [RELIC] will move on to the playoffs representing Group 3.

 

Last but not least, we see two clans make their way to the playoffs for the first time in Group 4. [CAZA] and [-M-A-] clearly showed that they are the top clans in their group, and will move on to challenge those in the other groups.

 

 

 

Congratulations to the clans that are moving on to the playoffs. You're all guaranteed a minimum of 10,000 and can double it with each win. The bracket is posted at the top of this topic, so have a look at who you'll be facing off against tomorrow. With half of our playoff pool being made up of former champions, this may be the first time we see a repeat champion. And don't forget, you're not only playing for the gold, but also an entry into the Summer 2014 Clan Invitational Tournament.

 

Good luck!
