First, the players will do a coin toss. The winner of the coin toss chooses to either do the first veto or pick the faction first. Obviously, if the winner of the coin toss chooses to pick the faction, the loser gets the first veto and vice versa. Before picking the factions, the players will veto maps from the map pool.Map Vetoes and Faction Selection
Map vetoing will be done first. So if the winner of the coin toss chooses to pick the faction he/she is not obliged to pick the faction until the map is determined.
- For the first match, the players will alternate making vetoes until there is 1 map left. This map will also be played in game 2.
- If the winner of the coin toss chooses to have the last veto, the loser must make the first veto.
- If the winner chooses to have the first pick of faction, the winner must make the first veto.
- If there is a game 3, the veto process is repeated. In this case, the winner who chooses last veto or faction is the player with the greatest number of victory points from game 1 and 2 combined. (Victory points from a defeated player do NOT count. Only victory points from a victory count).Other Details
- Lateness can result in VP penalities or worse, and are decided by the referees.
- 5 min break between games, in extreme cases a longer break can be give by the referees. This however doesn't happen without the permission of a referee!
- Match fixing - including not playing to full potential against clanmates is disallowed.
- Please restart CoH2 before any tournament game activity, and close external programmes before playing, to avoid crashes.
- Bugsplats: If there is a bugsplat within 7 minutes the game will be replayed, unless there happened something very special. In this case the referees make a decision of what will happen. If there is a bugsplat after 7 minutes the referees will do either one of these things:
- If both teams agree, the game will be replayed.
- If both teams don't agree to replay and if there is a clear winner according to the referees, this player will be given the win. In case there isn't a clear winner the referees will make a decision of what is going to happen.
However, the player that bugsplatted has to screenshot the crash with windows time/date showing! If this doesn't happen within 5 minutes the referees are allowed to give the win to the team that didn't bugsplat.
- If there is any sign of cheating during the games, contact the referees. They will decide what happens.
- Report your scores in the STEAM GROUP CHAT! Referees will insert the scores on Challonge, the website on which the brackets will be publiced as well. The links to the brackets will be given after the check-ins in the steam group ended!
The winning player of the match must upload all 2-3 games, and link them into this special thread. You run the risk of being banned from future events if you do not upload all your games! So do not forget!

- Players will be playing the live version! Future tournaments might be played with the revamp mod in the future but will be announced earlier to give players more time to prepare. We also want to wait and see how other events work out who might use the revamp mod
- Double OKW (Oberkommando West) is not allowed as well as double Soviets or double USF or double Brits! Only double ostheer is allowed in this tournament, this has been done to not force axis into a certain combination of factions as this seems unfair to us.
- Just to be sure, teams that contain axis and allies factions are not allowed. For example you can't play as brits and okw against soviets and okw. We are saying it here again to make sure nobody will accidently think this is allowed. It's axis vs allies, not axis mixed with allies vs axis mixed with allies
