Here is the format summed up:
After everyone is signed up, we will create a full bracket seeded by your rank on the leaderboard. It's a single elimination tournament. All matches are 2 player matches.
Each round, you have one week to play your match, which consists of six games against your opponent; the first person to win more than three games moves on to the next round, the loser is eliminated. If you end up playing 3-3, you play an additional deciding game.
We will continue to play one round each week until we reach the finals and subsequently have a winner.
The semifinalists will earn some sweet cash prizes, including 500€ for the Champion!
To participate, you need to be a Gold subscriber between September 15th and November 15th. Also you must have played atleast 20 rated games on your account before the signups end. (September 15th)
This includes every expansion including Empires, exlcuding Nocturne. If you have trouble with the shop to set the proper date, feel free to ask here.
