Good afternoon, Templars and Assassins.

This tournament is going to be a very large one, so you have a lot to read if you want to participate. This is only the first incarnation of rules, you can expect them to shift a little before this tourney rolls around.

Understand that the Domination and Manhunt sides are basically separate tournaments. For instance, you could sign three teams from one clan up for each without breaking the three team limit.

Currently this tournament is Xbox 360 only. PS3 teams may sign up, and if we get enough for a tournament -- meaning 8 or more -- I will handpick a PS3 player to deal with that side.



DOUBLE ELIMINATION, best 3 of 5. Finals best 4 of 7.

NUMBER OF TEAMS TO BE DETERMINED BY NUMBER OF SIGNUPS. Currently stands as a 16-team, but if 32 teams sign up, we're going there. Oh yeah.

Each team has room for 4 starters and 4 subs. No more. If you are a member of a clan, "any member of my clan can sub" will not fly. If this is a problem for you, let me know and I will consider your situation. There is a LIMIT OF THREE TEAMS FROM ANY ONE CLAN in each mode.

A player can participate in both modes IF his or her team does. If your entire team is not playing the other mode, you may not join up with another team. Subs may change, but changed subs may not participate unless the starters have a real good excuse for not being available, and inform me of this.

Seeding will be randomized. In the Winner's bracket, high seed will host. In the loser's bracket, low seed will host.



Participants from ALL REGIONS are accepted. However, the tournament will be timed for American players as they make up the majority, and I am not going to change it so that your team from Kazakhstan can play. If you want in and you're in a funky time zone, be ready for a late night or an early morning. The times have not been set yet, it will be dependent on how large the tournament is. What I DO know is that the dates will be between December 20th and January 20th, but NOT on Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve or New Years.

Lag tests will be done before each match, and you will continue switching hosts until one that does not generate severe lag comes around. If that doesn't happen, see below.



This brings us to the lag rules. Lag is a part of the game brought about by a wide range of player nationalities, and it will be treated as such. Basic lag, such as if you are slide killed, will not be subject to retrial.

If you have video evidence of GAMEBREAKING lag -- we are talking about the whole people teleporting back and forth across the map stuff -- inform me and you will redo the game. If this is constant, every game, and you have video proof that you are losing purely because of the lag -- such as if you are slide killed from a great distance through your defensive ability for a 1000 point kill and then lose by 300 -- the lagging team will be moved to the loser's bracket or eliminated.

If BOTH teams are lagging, tough luck. You guys are playing through it. Make sure to have fun and record it, it will probably be pretty amusing. Any team accusing the other of lag is REQUIRED to have video proof. If the other team accuses you of proven gamebreaking lag and you can not prove that they were lagging as well, you'll lose the round. Sorry, but if you want all regions allowed this is what you have to deal with.



There will be no complaining or smack talking, no cheating. If exploits are discovered in AC3 prior to this tournament they will be banned in the final tournament rules. This means uncounterable tactics or glitches. Example: If it's discovered that you can drop abilities while Shielded, hence running in while shielded and dropping a smoke bomb so your team can wipe out the other without them ever countering, this tactic will be banned in the final tournament rules. You may say "But Chachi, that's the team's fault if they are all together to be smoked." If the tactic is not banned, there is nothing to stop the entire offensive team from bringing shield and smoke and going individually at their enemies. Now say there is an obvious counter to this maneuver, which at the moment there is not. If that is found, this will not be banned. Basically, all counterable team plays are allowed. This includes everything from ACR Manhunt. Running, gunning, knifing, chucking smoke, however stupidly unskilled, you name it. All of these things can be beaten. Something will have to be EXTREMELY bad to be banned from this tournament.

Currently, ALL ABILITIES AND TACTICS ARE ALLOWED.



Next key rule component. THERE WILL BE NO DRAMA. If I catch wind of a team cheating, or talking smack beyond playful competition, that team will be disqualified immediately. I am going to speak to your team before I disqualify you, in case you can give me a ridiculously good excuse for why you should still be in the tournament. Don't expect favoritism, whether I know your team or not. I will have the final rules by December 15th, so check then and make sure you understand all of them.

Another point -- in recent tournaments, teams have felt inclined to "give the other team a second chance." This ALWAYS ends negatively. If the team you are playing breaks the rules and you do not inform me to disqualify them, that's fine -- but if it causes drama AT ALL, BOTH TEAMS WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. Basically, if the other team breaks my rules, I expect to know, and if I don't you may pay the price later.



Team leaders will notify me by Xbox message of the result of each round as it happens.



This tournament may be for a prize, I have not decided yet. As of now, it's for glory.



Signups start now. First come first serve. Team lineups may change up until the final rule day, December 15th, excluding subs, which can change up to gameday. Following that date, any team starters being removed will result in disqualification and the next team on the list getting in. Any subs being changed may only play as a last resort, so don't try to sneak around it that way.

List your name and your team, with leader, team name, and mode that you will play -- Dom, MH, or both. Also mention which platform you are playing on.

Final rule thus far. I, as Citizen War once said, am the absolute dictator of this tournament. All disputes will be resolved by me and me only in discussion with the involved team leaders. There is no reason it should come to the point where I need to. The rules covering lag, cheating and DQs are very clear.

If you managed to read all this and want to hop in, get to signing up!

I for right now wish to list myself as a free agent for 360 if possible.

Yes, I said 360 not PS3, as of now Outcast Templars has no plans to join until a PS3 tournament is official.

Um, ain't it a little early? And isn't this a little ambitious?
Just saying.

Don't mean to discourage you. But most of us are suffering from severe tournament burnout.

On top of this, after my experience in the last tournament, I don't know if I'd every play a team from Europe again.
Good luck regardless.

I don't know about the rest of Europe but I live in UK and I always play with my clan from USA (most) and I am always the best connection of them and they all ask me to host as all connect to me and some of them can't connect to players within USA :)

Tis early so that people have the maximum time to get a team together, tournament burnout also is not going to last until December. This will be the first AC3 tournament, so I see no reason to spring it on people particularly fast. Mentioning it this early allows me to adapt the rules as the game is learned and in accordance with how many teams sign up.

I have listed you as a potential PS3 team. If 8 PS3 teams apply, a tournament will run.

Baghdad, notify me of whether you are a PS3 or Xbox team.

ROFL not expecting good things from YOU,(especially in asa) is quite impossible :P im not thinking that there's a better asa player on ps3 than you (not even ted95on or neenkin) xD i wish i was such a beat in asa :/ but fortunately im 'acceptable' in MH ^_^ so if u want we can try both modes with some other competitive players :D

-__- i cant stop talking .. sry I will try not to spam that thread o.o

If I may ask why are u bring domination mode in this tourny if the game has not came out. why?

08-17-2012, 09:18 AM
If I may ask why are u bring domination mode in this tourny if the game has not came out. why?

Because it has been demonstrated plenty clearly that it will be a solid competitive mode. It's not like this tournament is happening before the game comes out.

Lmao thats not happening. I can set up a day two scrim series in Domination but there's not going to be a day one tournament when time zones might prevent participants from having the game.

Nero, just let me know. Legends is Apache's clan, right?
