Hey Tankers,

Registration will open up for the Autumn Classic Monday, November 6th at 6 P.M PST.  Keep in mind that the time changes on Sunday, November 5th!

There will be 4 days of 8 Team Group Play to determine the top 32 teams, after which a 2 day playoff will occur.  There will be a break between these two stages to accommodate the Thanksgiving Holiday (US).  Tournament stages will begin at 6 P.M PST.

Group Stage:
 

Monday, November 13th
Wednesday, November 15th

Friday, November 17th

Monday, November 20th
Tuesday, November 21st - Tiebreaker Playoff (if needed) 

 

Playoff Stage:


Monday, November 27th

Wednesday, November 29th
 

This tournament will be 7v7 at Tier VII.  256 teams will be accepted, first come first serve.  

Teams will be allowed to register 10 players - with some conditions:

- In order to qualify for prizing, a player must play in at least 7 Group Stage games (one full day of matches or equivalent).

- The amount of reserve players who qualify for prizing will not change your team's winnings, so teams who use more reserve slots will receive less gold per player.
 

Prizing (split by team)

 

1st: 200k Gold

2nd: 150k Gold

3rd: 80k Gold 

4th: 70k Gold

5th-8th: 50K Gold

9th-16th: 25k Gold

17th-32nd: 20k Gold

33rd-64th: 15k Gold

65th-128th 7.5k Gold


Final details and a topic with a link to the signup page will be posted on Monday.  In the meantime, enjoy the x3 weekend!

CM, still waiting on the more casual tournaments (single event types, 1v1, 3v3, 5v5, etc) that happened weekday and weekend nights for those of us that work and/or have families.  I'd appreciate it if those can be added at some point.  Not that I wouldn't mind playing in the Autumn Classic, I just don't have the time, especially while living on the West Coast.

I hear you, and that is a goal I am working towards.  As I stated in the Fall Classic wrap-up I will have some more news on smaller more casual tournaments after the Holiday season

But only up to the point that the colorless green ideas sleep furiously.
