By the decision of Clanbase Chiefs, I will be supervisor for EuroCup XX season. Killerboy and mundus will be supporting me. So, when you know the crew, time to know some rules.
CLANS ROSTERS AND SIGNUP DETAILS
First of all, I would like to say that you need at least 8 players to pretend to be invited. Create clan property named "Players for EC" /
Fall 2009 or something similar and include at least 8 players there.
You have to have 8 players who aren't on such field in any other clans
!! THAT'S FOR OC CLANS AS WELL !!
While signing up, in the field "notes for supervisors", enter league you want to play ( EC / OC Premier/ OC 2nd, etc). Include any additional info ( clan's achievements eg). which might be helpful for us while making groups.
If your clan does not have at least 3 players which played in EuroCup ( at least groupstage), you cannot rate yourself as 10. If you do so, your team will be excluded from Fall 2009 season.
Please remember that we have a right to exclude any clan!
Clans will be chosen by watching on several things, including:
- estimated skill
- achievements (CB EC/OC seasons, CB 6o6 ladders, ESL 6o6 cups, Warleagues, ETMasters, Miscellaneous)
- might be smth more; the most important are published
Expect I will definitely give some chance for clans already existing pretty long, active and with some kind of results.
What are "Miscellaneous" games?
If you pretend to play in EuroCup / EuroCup qualifier, you can invite me or Killerboy to spectate your game. We will connect only if you and your opponent plays under tags ( means clans only) and valid nicknames. Any try of faking will result in excluding clan from Fall 2009 season.
6th map will be chosen on a special meeting ( By invitation Only!).
- missile_b2 ( or b3 if update comes)
8th map will be chosen on a special meeting ( By invitation Only!)
First 3 matchweeks of OpenCup will be played EXACTLY on the same maps as EuroCup, so that it will be easier to find an opponent.
BY INVITATION ONLY MEETING
I'm going to invite 2 players from several TOP clans to discuss a couple of things I feel that they need to be discussed. The meeting will most likely take place on 9/10 th September.
- viewing maps: fun beach final and snatch3 with shown objective ( by myself ) and discussion about usefulness of those maps.
Downloads can be done from arni's FTP:
DOWNLOAD Fun Beach Final
- discussion about 8th map for OpenCup
Current options: fun beach final / snatch3 / dubrovnik
- voting for 6th map for EuroCup ( choose between adlernest and missile_b2)
Note: if there is a group of at least 8 players who wants to add a map to voting, map will be added.
Note2: if you aren't present on viewing maps period, you are NOT allowed to vote.
If a frequency on that meeting is poor, expect new map in mappool then.
EUROCUP INVITATIONS FORMULA
It is possible that in this year formula will be changed. Traditionally, some clans were receiving direct invitations and some were fighting for rest of the spots in 1-match elimination. In Fall 2009, it can go by different way.
4 clans directly invited to EuroCup, 16 clans invited to EC Qualifiers. Winners of qualifiers - in number of 8 teams will go to EC groupphase. 8 clans which lost their game make 4 pairs - some kind of loser bracket final- winners will get remaining 4 spots.I have gone further. While 8 losers will be fighting for remaining 4 spots, 8 winners will make 4 pairs. Why's that? Direct invitations will give poule 1. Winners from winners poule 2. Losers from winners poule 3. And winners from losers poule 4. That means more games, more public poules.
Differences: traditional way - more clans involved in EC, proposal - loser bracket.
I have honestly no idea what will future bring. First of all, it's closely related to the quantity of signups. Also, I am completely obliqued to CB Chiefs decision ( if they allow EC Qualis in other way).
That might mean that EC Quali teams will have to play 2 games in 10 days period. I am also speaking about possibility to extend EC Qualis time period to 14 days ( and maybe longer quali trees then).
I will be able to give further info after the signups are done.
From this place, I would like to ask all clans to signup as soon as possible ( especially those TOP teams, so that I'll know who to invite to a meeting). Please read this newspost carefully, check, if you have valid pb guid entered ( if not, upload it asap!).
I'm not available on the first two weekends of September and I won't have time for you till the end of this month- I am busy with my uni stuff.
Good luck & have fun
