    Well its back by Popular Demand. With the success and good reception of the last one, I am proud to announce the Second TH Mini-Tournament Series for SC2. This time however, we will hopefully see both Veterans and new contestants. All leading to more unique match ups. My personal hope is that we will see more diversity in the races *HINT* *HINT* but I guess we can only wait and see...

    This mini-tournament series is the same as the last one, it is all for fun and it will focus around convenience for the players, meaning it does not follow a strict schedule nor does it require any contestants to be of any skill level or league. So Beginners to Pros and everyone else in between are welcome to join regardless of their schedules. :thup:

    Did I mention there is Total of 160 Reputation in Prizes?

    Realms & Tournaments
    Unfortunately because of the lack of Cross-Regional play installed by the Omnipotent Activision Blizzard, we mortals must once again divide the series into different mini-tournaments to reach all the people of interest. Any Regional Server that manages to get eight (exceptions to this number may be applied if requested) entries will receive its own mini-tournament and all the fun that comes with it. However, both the North American Server (American League) and the European Server(Euro League) automatically receive their own tournament and will begin once eight people are approved as contestants.

    Tournament Setup
    For the regular eight player mini-tournament, the setup is simple consisting of Three (Possibly 4) rounds of 1v1 style play - The Round of 8, The Round of 4 (Semi-Finals), and the Finals. In the Final round, the losers of the Semi-Finals will duke it out for third place and at the end of it all if the Finalist of all the realms wish to continue on to the Grand Finale, they will meet for additional round(s) to win further glorious titles and prizes.

    Elimination
    The decision on who will move on and who will be eliminated after each match-up will be determined by whoever can win the best of three games. (Meaning you must win Two of the Three to move on). All Rounds will be made in this format, except for the Finals (this does not including the Third Place Match-up but does include the Grand Finale); where instead of the best of three, it will become the best of five!

    Prizes
    Ah yes, the part everyone is interested in... The Standard Mini-Tournament can last a few months, so because of this the prizes are on the generous side. (Which I am sure no one is complaining about)

    Grand Champion = +45 Reputation + The Custom Title of Grand Champion
    Realm Champion = +35 Reputation + The Custom Title of Realm Champion
    Realm Runner Up = +25 Reputation
    Realm Third Place = +15 Reputation

    Rules & Regulations
    Amendments to the Previous Rules can been seen below.
    1) All games MUST be played on the Server that is designated as host for that specific mini-tournament.

    2) All Talk inside the Games should be held in ENGLISH.

    3) Players must be respectful to one another at all times within the Tournament. This means no taunting, spamming, or insulting your opponent, as well as rage quitting. We expect you guys to act like adults, so we will not be afraid to enforce this and punishment may extend to your removal from the tournament or even future tournaments.

    4) Games can be played against your match up can be played whenever the most time is convenient for both of you. Matches do not have to be held all at once, and can be held at separate times or even separate days. However, games must be played within the given time for that Round.

    5) The Maps that you will be playing on for each of the games per round will be selected at random from a pool and given to both you and your match-up. YOU MUST PLAY THE MAPS CORRESPONDING TO THE CORRECT GAME IN THE MATCH UP. YOUR GAMES WILL NOT COUNT IF YOU PLAY THEM OUT OF ORDER OR PLAY DIFFERENT MAPS THEN THE ONES GIVEN.

    6) Each Player beforehand will be able to pick two maps he or she would like to void from their game pool. These Voided Maps will not be selected for your match up. However, once the tournament begins these two choices can NOT be changed. So for the most part if you submit them, your stuck with them. So choose wisely.

    7) Each player will also be selecting from 4 Race Selections before the tournament even starts. These four extend to Terran, Protoss, Zerg and Random. You can choose ONE of these selections to be your Race for the whole tournament. Players will not be allowed to change their race selection once the tournament begins or anytime after. So once again choose with care.

    8) The out come of a Disconnection in a Game will be decided by the two opponents. If both players agree that the game was NOT completely one sided to the point that it was obvious who was going to win. The said game will have a rematch ether immediately or at a later date. (If conflict between the two players occurs, please contact me or post in the thread with the replay and we will review it). This regulation applies for all games, except for the Finals. (See Regulation #13)

    9) As well, on the Rare Occasions of a Tie (Where there are no longer any more minerals or attacking units on the field from both sides) the game will end in a rematch.

    10) In any cases where Both Players wish to have a rematch for any reason (such as Scheduling problems, Real Life interference, etc.), the players are allowed to hold a Rematch. If both players do not agree, the player that is requesting the Rematch will be forced to forfeit that said matchup.

    11) Rematches for a said match can be played ether immediately or at a later time/date but MUST be played before the next map in the match-up order can be played. All Rematches must be played on the same map as the game in conflict.

    12) Replays from each game must be submitted to the thread, by ether the two players or any of the spectators involved. This is important for us to ether look back at the game to make a judgment call and also to later make into videos for others to see.

    13) Spectators and Observers are allowed in all matches! However, they can not talk specifically to the two players involved in the game (and I mean in anyway), nor can they give any unfair advantage to one or any of the players in the game. All Regulations apply to the Spectators and Observers involved just as if they were any other player. Any rule breaking behavior between Spectators and Observers will result in harsh consequences.

    14) For the Final Match-up, all games must contain at least one approved referee from the correct realm list. These Referees will make all judgment calls on Disconnections, Ties, Behavior Problems and will report back that the results posted by the players of each final game is accurate. *This Regulation does include the Grand Champion Matchups but it does not affect Third Place matchups where the referee is still optional.

    15) To keep the Tournament as streamline as possible, Players must communicate with their opponents in some form (perferably in Private Messages). If a Player in the match up becomes extremely inactive and has not responded to their opponent on the basis of scheduling their match ups by the deadline of the round. The player that is inactive and has not responded will be kicked from the Tournament and will be restricted from joining the next tournament. If the reasons for your Inactivity were Personal, or out of your countrol you can contact me and the punishments will be ether waviered or lessened.

    16) And last but not least, do not forget in the heat of the games to enjoy yourself and have fun. ​


    Amendments
    Amendment to Regulation 6 - Your Voided Maps can be changed as many times as you would like in your submission post (it does not have to be announced) until the tournament begins where at that point you will be stuck with whatever is posted.

    Amendment to Regulation 7 - Same as Regulation 6 except when it comes to Races. Races can be changed as many times as you would like in your submission post (preferably this one be announced) until the tournament begins, where at that point you will be stuck with what you got.

    Adding of Regulation 10 - If in any cases where Both Players agree to have a Rematch for any reason, they can do so.

    Highlight in Regulation 13 - Observers can not specifically communicate to any player privately under any circumstances. (We had problems with that last tournament)

    Amendment to Regulation 14 - In third place match ups, unlike last tournament, they do not require a referee.

    Adding of Regulation 15 - Opponent Inactivity in a Matchup - This one is important so you should go up and read that one specifically.

    The Maps
    The maps below are the maps that will be used in the Tournament The maps will be selected from a Randomized Map Pool for each match up. Players are allowed to void two of the maps below in the list from their personal map pool.


    Player Registration
    A change from last time - Players will Register through posting their entry forms in the thread. This way any changes you wish to make can be made before the tournament by editing the submission post. :shades:

    Players must abide to the regulations set forth in this tournament and must also be able to connect to their designated servers without complications.

    Only submit if you are completely sure you are dedicated to play through the duration of this Tournament.

    Only 8 Players from each Realm will be allowed to participate in their region's tournament.
    The Mini-Tournament for any Realm will begin when all 8 players have been submitted & approved.​


    The next few posts below this one will contain specific Mini-Tournament information for each Realm. (Each realm receiving its own post.)

    We hope to get as many participates as possible for all servers. So don't be afraid to join and spread the word!

    What are you talking about? Both jungle basin and Shakura's plateau is in ladder games.

    There was some talk on teamliquid.net about Shakura's plateau not being available for ladder games since you couldn't thumb it down in the map preferences. However, it turned out this wasn't the case.

    However, most people were quite angry about the fact that Shakura's plateau was supposedly removed since most people find it to be a very nice map in general. I agree. I can't speak about Jungle Basin since I haven't played it that much. It seems too small for my taste though.
