And so, the time's come again, fellow DOTA fanatics. It's been over a year since we ran our last Community Tournament, and to popular (and nagging) demand, I've decided to bring it back in a bigger, and hopefully better, format.
This year around, I have built a full team of admins, judges, casters and artists to help support this event. With a bit of luck, this'll ensure the highest quality possible. We'll be able to provide you guys at home with VODs of the games, graphs to easily showcase the current standing of the tournament, a wealth of support and contacts for the teams, and just an overabundance of information for those interested. But more on this later.
After a lot of consideration, I have decided to shamelessly copy TI4 and start the tournament off with a round-robin group-phase, having each team face every other once in a BO1 (Best of 1) game. At the end of the cycle, we will tally the amount of wins and losses of each team, and depending on overall standing, eliminate certain contestants and diving the rest up into a winners' and losers' bracket. In the case of multiple people occupying the same position on the ladder (same amount of wins, losses), a tiebreaker will be held. From there on, the tournament will take the shape of a double-elimination event where teams face off against each other in a series of BO3s until they reach the grand finals, which will be a BO5 series of games.
We will be providing feedback and updates on the tournament both in this thread, as well as on this neat page. (More detail will be added to it as time goes on.)
Before we head on the sign-ups, I'd like to adress the differences between this year's tournament and that of the last. As you've already surely seen, there is no seperate brackets for people of individual skill. Some of the newer players here might despair at this change, but read on, I believe we've found a way to ensure that everyone will have a fighting chance. Now, the reason for this decision is that the lower bracket in last year's event received very little attention compared to that of the higher one. People were less interested in watching it and due to constraints, we were only able to provide them with some of the rewards. As you may remember, the winners of last year's higher bracket got the chance to play against the Daily DOTA gang on a special stream on the site.
The hope is that the round-robin format will ensure fair games for everyone, with some being losses against more experienced teams and some wins. As an example, I'd like to cite that it was the least experienced team last year who ended up winning the lower bracket due to smart drafting and the ability to study and learn from their opponents. With a much larger tournament this year around, there'll be a wider variety of teams attending, and so increased potential for growth for every player involved.
The second major change to the format is in our management department. The biggest problem last year was arguably communication. Setting up games became difficult with so many people in so many different time-zones and only two admins available. This year, it'll be different. Each team will be given a dedicated admin, selected by proximity to ensure no time-zone issues occur, who will be their contact person throughout the tournament. Any issues, any questions regarding scheduling/match-ups/what have you, will be answered by this individual. And of course, we will be displaying brackets and graphs galore, so that the current standing and schedule of the tournament is completely clear to everyone.
Oh, and one more major change, no restriction on the total amount of teams. Everyone is welcome.
And with this, I'm opening the sign-ups to the tournament, please look below for more information and regulations.
Each team can consist of up to 7 players, consisting of a 5-man core line up, and two stand-ins. It is, however, only necessary to enter 5, but one stand-in or more is greatly encouraged.If agreed upon by both teams attending a match, one of the stand-ins can also coach the game, but only if the second team is doing the same, so keep this in mind when selecting your team-mates.
When signing up, do so via this thread. Before anything else, make it clear who is the captain on your team, and have said person provide their Steam ID for contact purposes, then state a name for your team, a teamtag, the names of your players here on the site and on Steam, (Steam Link not obligatory). If your friends do not have a Giant Bomb account, don't worry about it. Friends of community members are very welcome. And finally, indicate the time-zone of each player.
For those of you who do not, as of yet, have a team, we have created a sister-thread for team creation. Check here for other players looking for a team, or for additional members to their teams.
Sign-Ups will be open for at least a week and a half. We might very well start the Round-Robin phase of the tournament in advance of said deadline if enough teams sign up early.
Similar to last year, we will be handing out rewards to the winning team in the form of extended premium subscription and additional goodies, thanks to our generous benefactor @mrpibb. This is the second year in a row he's helped out, so be sure to give him your thanks. Further details to come.
- Tournament Consisting of multiple phases, the mode will be "Captain's Mode"
- Round-Robin style Phase 1, each team plays each other once in a series of BO1s, competing for the best win/loss ratio.
- Tie Breakers Phase 2, teams with similar scores will compete against each other in a series of BO3s, the winners and losers will then be distributed to the winners' and losers' brackets.
- Double-Elimination style Phase 3, the final stage of the tournament, teams fight each other in a series of BO3s, advancing through the brackets until a winner is declared after a grand finals series of BO5s.
- We require the sign-up of full teams, consisting of a minimum of 5 players, with a maximum of 7.
- We are creating a seperate thread for team creation, check this here out if you want to participate but don't have a full team yet.
- When signing up, state your captain and have him provide his steam ID, the name and teamtag of your team, then list your players and the time-zone for all playing.
- The current standing and schedule of the tournament will be displayed on this page, as well as here, and in google docs to come.
- Sign-Ups will be open for at least a week and a half. We might very well start the Round-Robin phase of the tournament in advance of said deadline if enough teams sign up early.
- We mean to be very flexible with the scheduling, so if you aren't sure you will have time to play, please do sign up anyway, we'll make it work.
Teams participating will be listed in the table beneath:
|Team Name||Team Tag||Captain|
|Freakinchair's Fraud Squad||GAF||Ellen Pudge|

- Set Two: @vitor (UndoneBahamut on Steam) - Twitch link to come.
We're still looking for additional casters, so please inform me if you're interested.
The beauty of round-robin BO1 games is the very small amount of time required to play 'em. As such, we will be running games throughout the weeks to come, and scheduling the more difficult and longer match-ups for the weekends. This should ensure that everyone can attend the tournament, and that it'll be a continous series of games as opposed to games only being played over the weekends. The hope is to finish the entire tournament in under two weeks after it's beginning, but depending on the availability of the teams, this might change.
This section will be filled out as the tournament progresses, here you will be able to see a full listing of every match-up. Google docs will also be provided.

The general idea is to have the tournament span over two weeks after sign-ups have ended, playing the majority of the round-robin games during the first week, and the later, more involved phases during the two consecutive week-ends. Unfortunately, it is very hard to pinpoint just how long the event will last as availability can become an issue when matching up players from different regions. Last year, we had planned on a 3-week long tournament and due to TI4 and other matters, weren't able to finish it for a whole month and a half. This year around, our tournament is far better set up in terms of communication, and we're using a format that's much more appropriate for casual players, so I can just about promise you that it won't be a repeat of last year in this sense. Ultimately, we'll have to wait and see, but an additional week may very well happen.
Partial teams should visit the Team Creation thread first and foremost. We suggest both posting a message in there in which you detail your current team and what roles you're looking for, as well as searching through the thread and messaging people you believe would make a good addition to your team. Once you have your full team, please post a message in here, following the Sign-Up guidelines.
As further questions are posed, I will be filling this section out with my answers to them.
I'd like to take a moment here to thank everyone participating in the tournament, both on the management side and on the players. If anyone else is interested in helping out as a caster or as an artist, please visit this thread for more information.
This tournament has taken a LOT of time to set up, but despite the larger workload, it's felt considerably more relaxing than last year. This is mainly due to the great help I've had, and just my general excitement for this baby. Last year, we had our hopes for making the tournament succeed, but the feedback was beyond what we'd hoped for. You can read my thoughts on last year's tournament post-mortem here. We'd really like to make this a regular thing, and will continue to strive to do so as long as people are interested in the tournament and in the game.
The AMAZING banner was made by @flaboere on the site. Can't overstate how impressed I am.
I will be participating in the tournament myself along with a group of friends. We simply couldn't resist throwing ourselves into the fray. In order to ensure fairness, I have given over scheduling of all my team's matches to another admin. Same rules apply to us as everyone else.
