We are happy to announce the upcoming CTW (Capture the Wool) tournament on the 27th of May. CTW is relatively new to Badlion, but has a long history and a very dedicated community, and we at Badlion are happy and eager to host such a community and introduce new players to the gamemode.

Overview

This will be a team tournament.(5v5) Players will not compete on individual skill level alone, but on their teams cohesiveness and ability to achieve objectives For those of you unfamiliar with the gamemode, Archybot wrote a post outlining the gamemode and the basics.

Date and Time
The tournament will have 2 stages. (All times in EST)
The Group Stage will be occurring on 10:00 AM, May 27th, Saturday.
The Bracket Stage will begin at 10:00 AM May 28th, Sunday.

Registration is closed.
Current time in EST: http://time.is/New_York

Server

We will be using the CTW lobby server hosted in Central North America as our default location. As discussed in the past, this location is most fair to the largest group of players in terms of average ping for SA, AU, NA and EU. Each team will be required to get into their parties and duel the opposing party, as instructed by the bracket and tournament team.

If two teams mutually agree to have their match hosted in a different region (providing that region supports CTW), then the match will be shifted to that region.

Teams

Sign-up page: https://www.badlion.net/forum/thread/169237
Teams will consist of 5 players and 4 substitutes for a total of 9 players, of which only 5 will be participating at a time. One member of each team will apply for their entire team, and will be regarded as the team captain, and therefore maintain the responsibility of roster changes for their team. Players who are not included on a team's roster may not play for that team. Any team who is playing with a member who is not approved on their roster will be disqualified.

Only post for sign-ups if you are your team's leader!

Objectives, scores and ties
Each match lasts for 30 minutes.
The objective is to capture one of each of the enemy's wool and return it back to your base. Once a team has captured all variations of enemy's wool, they win the match.
If both teams fail to secure all of the enemy's wool, the team with the higher amount of wools will win.
If both teams have secured an equal number of wool by the 30 minutes mark, the tiebreaker process begins. For each minute that passes, the re-spawn timer increases until a team is victorious.


Stages

Due to a frankly low number of sign-ups, we've reframed our stage layout.
We will be running a 128 bracket, bo1, until the quaters round.

Sunday, we will be continuing the bracket, from the ro16, except now it will be bo3.

Score Recording
Staff will be responsible for reporting scores and translating said scores onto the challonge. If there are any problems, please make a dispute here: https://www.badlion.net/forum/category/106

Every match, there should a be a staff member spectating. If this is not the case, please contact a tournament staff member to make them aware.
