National Tournament

2016 Rules/Mappool

The rules
Where nothing specific is stated on this page, the JJnet clanwar rules apply.


Number of participating teams
These plans have been made with a tournament of eight teams in mind. If more teams are added, they will need to be adjusted a bit.

The mappool

The mappool consists of two parts: the group stage mappool and the knockout phase mappool.

Both subcategory is made up of popular "old" maps, less popular old maps and new maps.

In the group stage, maps are predetermined. In the play-offs, they are selected beforehand by the teams and the better ranked team has the advantage of a wider array of choices.

During this tournament, teams can't agree to play other maps than those in the mappool or those scheduled for their specific games.

Each team can pick each map only once during the knockout phase

Each team is allowed to have 1 veto map from the mappool. A team can pick its own veto-level during the knockout phase.

After the group stage ends, captains will be asked for their team veto map.

The layout

Maps are either announced by officials or picked by clans well ahead of games in order to facilitate training for the teams.
After the group stage, the first two teams of each group will move on to the play-offs. The remaining four teams will do the same thing for places 5-8.
The group stage is round-based. The play-offs are scoring-based. 
In the group-stage, draws are possible. 

If teams end up with the same amount of points after the group stage, this list will be followed:

1. Who has earned the most points?
2. If still tied: Who had beetter score difference? (=scores-scores against)
3. If still tied: Which of the teams won when they faced off in the group stage?
4. If still tied: Which of the teams made the most scores?

The match-ups
The groups were seeded based largely on their performance in previous national tournaments.

Each level is played twice (2x 10 min), once on each colour.
A coin-flip (repeated for each level) determines which team gets to pick colour first.

 

Play-offs

Semi-finals
A1-B2
B1-A2

A1, B1, A2 and B2 pick a map ahead of the match (not at the time of a clanwar itself) from the Knockout mappool.

The highest ranking team gets to determine the map order pick colour first on all levels (including the tiebreaker).

Finals / Bronze games

All teams pick a map from the Knockout mappool ahead of the game. The order in which the maps are played are determined by a coin flip. The order in which colours are played on maps is determined by one coin flip for every level played. 

Play-outs

A3-B3 for 5th place

A4-B4 for 7th place

A3, B3, A4 and BB pick a map ahead of the match (not at the time of a clanwar itself) from the Knockout mappool.

The order in which colours are played on maps is determined by one coin flip for every level played.

General

To determine the tables in the group stage, match scores are in rounds, a win is 2 points, a tie 1 points and a loss 0 points.

The purpose of letting teams pick maps ahead of games, is the same as the purpose of scheduling the new levels very early in the group stage: to make it easier for the teams to prepare for their matches.

Deadlines are set by a tournament official to set a time-frame for making important changes, in our case: picking a match date, and (in the play-offs) maps. They are binding in the sense that if you don't abide by them, you get into trouble, but not so binding that they can't be bent to accomodate the wishes of the playing teams. In other words, if you miss a deadline, you will be at the mercy of the opposing team. Similarily, in the case of a game's scheduling, the set time is binding, unless the teams agree to change it.

In case of a tie in the knockout-stage, the veto method will be applied to the entire tournament mappool. The map should be played twice to circumvent colour bias. However, if the teams agree - presumably because the selected map is fairly balanced - they can agree to only play one tiebreaker round. Either way, the last tiebreaker round will be played with /overtime on /otlimit 30, and the overtime limit will be reset until a team scores or forfeits (/otlimit reset).

Each level is played twice (probably 2x 10 min), once on each colour.

Rules clarification:

Players that aren't registered for the tournament or don't belong to any of the competing nationalities are in principle not allowed to play. When problems occur and a new player could solve that, the tournament officials should be contacted. Only they can decide whether the player in question is allowed into the team or is allowed to play temporarily or disallowed completely.

Every team MUST USE the country tag and each player MUST USE that specific tag during the game. Referees can rename a specific player to meet the requirements of this rule if necessary. Broadcasters MUST use [BC] tag BEFORE their nickname, and referees MUST use [REF] tag BEFORE their nickname.
