Seasonal Map Cup Spring 2019

highlight


There is nothing better than an experienced commander at the helm of one's forces. A fellow who's sturdy, hardened from battle, and has a great tactical mind. What could go wrong?

Welcome to the second season of the Seasonal Map Cup! It is bigger and better than ever before.

This tourney will feature some new and returning custom maps as well as the SMC Dynamic Commander Mod. Our Master Mapmaker created the new and reworked maps under the consultations by some of the best players in the game. For this season, we had Talisman, OrangePest, and VonIvan share their experiences on the frontlines to create the pool of maps used in this tourney.

Every three months, as usual, these maps will change and we will host a new tourney, showcasing the works of our Mapmakers and the pros.


Details



The 8 best players are selected after the sign ups have closed. Those players compete in the tournament. In case a player cannot make it, 4 players are chosen as reserves.

The Cup consists of 3 such tournaments, featuring a point system to crown the overall best players for this season.

This is being used as a placement qualifier, where the top 3 players will automatically be seeded for the finals in December. The players that do not place will be eligible for the two additional seasonal qualifiers following this one, as the placement players will not.


Map Vetoes and Faction Selection



First, the teams toss a coin. The winner chooses either to pick the map or pick the faction first. Obviously, if the winner of the coin toss chooses to pick the faction, the loser has the map pick and vice versa. Before picking the factions, the teams pick the map.

BO3
  • Game 1: Coin toss winner chooses either the map OR faction first.
    Then the loser chooses their faction AND chooses the map if one is not yet picked. Then the winner chooses their faction if he hasn't chosen one yet.
  • Game 2: players swap Allied/Axis and play same map as G1. The players that chose faction second, now chooses their factions first.
  • Game 3: VP leader chooses faction first on a map that has not been played
    in set preference order of map 1, map 2, map 3, map 4 or map 5 as shown in the map pool.


BO5
  • Game 1: same as BO3.
  • Game 2: same as BO3.
  • Game 3: Coin toss loser chooses either the map OR their faction first.
    Then the winner chooses their faction AND chooses the map if one is not yet picked.
  • Game 4: players swap Allied/ Axis and play same map as G3. The players that chose faction second, now chooses their factions first.
  • Game 5: VP leader chooses faction first on a map that has not been played
    in set preference order of map 1, map 2, map 3, map 4 or map 5 as shown in the map pool.


Other Details



  • Lateness may result in VP penalties or worse, and are decided by the referees/organizers.
  • Match fixing is disallowed.
  • In the event that only one player shows up for check-ins for a round, that player is awarded with a bye. The opposing player is disqualified.
  • Please restart CoH2 before any tournament games, and close external programs before playing to avoid crashes.
  • Players have to follow the in-game mod guidance. Example: "Pick a commander within the next 15 seconds."
  • Player can't use any abilities within the 15 seconds window.
  • Bugsplats: If there is a bugsplat within 7 minutes, the game will be replayed. An exception being: player 1 "bugsplats" after 5 mins after losing their whole army except one pioneer. In this case the referees/organizers make a decision of what will happen.

    If there is a bugsplat after 7 minutes the referees/organizers 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/organizers, a winner is decided. In case there isn't a clear winner the referees/organizers 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/organizers 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/organizers. They will decide what happens.
  • If there is an issue the the SMC Dynamic Commander Mod during gameplay the referees/organizers will do either one of the following depending on the bug (if any):
    - 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/organizers, a winner will be decided. In case there isn't a clear winner the referees/organizers will make a decision of what is going to happen.
    -If the game encounters a FATAL SCAR Error, the players will have to send their warnings file to the referees/organizers. The warnings file is located in "DRIVE_\Users\Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes 2".
  • Report that your series were played in the SMC discord! Referees/organizers will insert the scores on challonge after they are cast on Sunday, the website on which the brackets will be view-able as well. The links to the brackets will be given after the sign-ups end and before the tournament starts!



It is up to the players to upload the matches, and they must notify a referee in the SMC discord. Upload all games, and link them to the SMC discord in the "replay-submissions" section. If you do not upload the series you have played, no points will be awarded and it counts as a no show for both players. It is recommended that both players save the replays.

Please upload the replays with this format:
SMC/Round(R1, R2, etc.)/Game Number(G1, G2, G3, ect.)/Your Name - Opponent's Name)

Here is an example of how you should post your replays:
