COIL EU Mini Duel League

In light of stony's news and the new influx of players from Desura I've decided to resurrect my idea of competitive leagues again.

This is 1vs1 duels, not a clan league, unfortunately until it can be organised the clan scene in the EU is not active enough.

Tournament will be held on the 18-19th of February. Match schedules will be decided based on the players. Each duel will be played separately on the same server, contestants will be asked to use the IRC in order to stay up-to-date, the forum thread will also be used to post changes, however.
[Winner, Runner up, 3rd/4th] & Blue forum name
Note: For fairness sake, there is no prize difference between the pro and amateur tournaments.
1. Duel tournament BO5; units and mirrored/non-mirrored will be decided later on, players may get to pick between mirrored and non-mirrored unit choices, if there is a dispute the admins will help resolve it, default is mirrored units. [1]

2. Duel tournaments max limit at 8 players [2]

3. Duel tournament participants will be filtered in terms of SF or level. There will be an amateur duel league and a veteran duel league, anyone above level 30 may choose to play in the veteran duel league, and anyone below level 40 may choose to play in the amateur duel league. [3]

4. For organisation an IRC channel [4] will be used to keep players updated and players will regularly be informed of their respective match times and opponents. [5]

5. To minimise any lag or unfair advantages/disadvantages, only participants in duels will be allowed on the server at the time of their match, the server will have four to five players in at most. [6]

6. Players waiting for their match will have to either regularly visit the forum thread, the IRC channel, or the in-game lobby, but there is nothing required of them until their match comes up.

7. Players who do not turn up after ten minutes of their match schedules will be disqualified from the tournament, however if notice is given in advance the match may be rescheduled. [7]

8. Duel tournaments will be held over a weekend due to their small size, each match will be streamed and possibly commentated on. [8]

9. Players that lag will not receive a handicap of any kind, if a lagout occurs or any problems occur with connections of each player, the opponent can agree to repeat the round, however if they do not want to repeat the round they do not need to. If players are based in different countries, they must agree in advance which server they want to play on. If it cannot be agreed upon, players will fight on an EU server by default. [9]

10. Bugs with specific units are not allowed, people who know what these bugs are should know not to use them. If you are caught exploiting unit specific bugs you will be given a warning and the round will be reset, if you are caught exploiting again after this against the same opponent you will be completely disqualified. [10]

[1]: (adminlist is the same as the old one, so admins you should know who you are) If you wish to sign up to be an admin you should PM me. Admins are required to watch and referee games and to report the scores.
[2]: This is so that the tournament will be as quick and simple as possible, complications may still happen but it should be a lot easier to resolve them in a small tournament. I may do bigger tournaments in the future if people sign up and turn up to them.
[3]: I will be running two separate 8 man duel tournaments, prizes in each tournament will vary based on the skill level of the tournament
[4]: If you are new to IRC use this to connect: Mibbit Chat Link
[5]: It is your responsibility to turn up on time and to know any changes that have been made to the matches.
[6]: Anyone wishing to watch the duels will have to visit the stream, you'll most likely get a better view of the matches anyway.
[7]: Match may or may not be rescheduled based on the amount of notice given. The duel tournament will be finishing on the weekend, delays may only be for the Saturday-Sunday period, after that the match will be cancelled and you will be disqualified.
[8]: If stony is available for streaming his stream will contain the commentary with any volunteers, I will run my stream alongside his and on my own if he is not available.
[9]: Apologies to any US players wishing to play without lag or latency issues, but I don't want to make things too complicated by having duels played on two separate servers.
[10]: For this reason, sadly predator duels will be excluded from the unit selection unless players specifically ask and agree on using the unit, in which case bugs will not be penalized.

Make sure you reply if you want to sign up, only 8 spots in each tournament.

Amateur = level 1-40
Pro = Level 30+

No, players between levels 30 and 40 get to choose which league they play in.

Hopefully stony can get the replays to upload on the duel server after each match takes place.
