Clan members only, 1v1 format best of three all matches including the finals.
Special rules: Using a handicap rule as follows: increments of 10% per division gap using whole rank not tier ranking. example if it's a bronze vs a silver the silver would be playing with 90% handicap; exemption to the special rule; would be as follows if the both players agree not use the handicap rule. A potential scenario would be if player was a higher rank previous season; (example if gold player A vs gold player B), and gold player B was a platinum previous season handicap rules will be applied to gold player B as if gold player B was a platinum.
Reasons for special rule, as history dictated from previous tournaments, only a handful of players will show, and the rank gaps would be vast ranging from diamonds to bronze, this is a experimental tournament as to test out if this format will still be fun and competitive.
Caster/admin has right to first warn, second declare a winner if after the 10 minute mark there has been no activity for 10 minutes, so around 20 minutes their has been no movements whatever so ever, the reasoning behind this; is since we cast this for fun, we can't be doing casting 8 hour shifts because of mass turtle games(this usually happens with lower level play bronze, silver etc)
Declare your race at the start of tournament, no race switching allowed, you may be random however you must say random.
The map pool is current 1v1 season maps, 3 maps selected from players, the lower rank player gets first pick, so essentially the lower rank player gets two map picks and the high rank gets 1 map pick; If players have same rank they may agree to who picks first.
