After the last tournaments that we organized and the really good feedbacks we have received regarding our last SuperCups, we decided to launch our first American Tournament!
The reason for this big American tournament is because of the huge demand from our community during the last cups we organized. The last cups we made were mainly based in Europe or Asia, and never in America. To make it fair, we wanted to create this first American Tournament to give American players a chance to play with a good ping. Keep in mind, this tournament is for American Players only. This includes North America, Central and South America.
So bring your friends & clans, build your team and become the best team of the tournament! Would you like to join? Here are the requirements:
Your team needs to be at least 5 people. There will be 5 people playing so a minimum of 5 people is required. You can have as many extra players (reserves) as you want but only 5 can play. You will be able to add reserve players 24 hours before your match.
Your team has to be from North America, Central or South America. We allow teams to use 1 player from other continents.
You have to agree on all the following rules under pain of punishment.

MAP: Tournament Map (The games will be done on Event Servers in the PVP Servers List in NA.) SYSTEM: Best of 3 during the Group Stage and Best of 5 after Group Stage / 5 vs 5 / Day time TOURNAMENT SYSTEM: To be annouced! DATE OF FIRST MATCHES: To be announced!
- Only teams from America (North, Central, South America) are allowed to join this tournament. But you must be aware of some rules about it:
1. Every match will take place on North American Servers.
2. You have to make sure that your internet is stable. The biggest problem in this case is not the ping but the "Packet lost". When a player has Packet lost, his internet is very unstable and it makes him lagging ingame. If we see that one of your players is lagging during the match then you will have two possibilities:
* You will be able to replace him with one of your reserve players. If you decide to replace him, you have exactly 3 minutes to do that. After the 3 minutes, (with or without your reserve player) the match will start again.
* You will be able to finish the match in 4vs5. But in anyways, if your player is still lagging he will not be able to finish the match and you will have to deal with the circonstences.
3. Teams are allowed to bring as much players from outside of America as they want in their replacements. But in your main squad while playing a match, only 1 players from other continent is allowed to play.
- Every complaint about a match will be assigned to kazmightONFIRE and Chupacabra. You will have to bring different evidence to prove anything.
- A player cannot play for more than one team, even if in different accounts. If this happens, the teams involved will be instantly disqualified.
- Every team MUST use our TeamSpeak 3 Server to communicate. We will create rooms for your team with a password. Those informations will be provided to the leader of the team.
- In order to organize the tournament as best as possible, every team have to make sure they can also play during the week (around night time). Teams that help us to organize matches during the week days will be rewarded.
Here's the tournament format of this American Tournament:
We aim to make Group phases and then a direct elimination.
Each team will play against in each other in that group ONCE.
Each round you win brings you one point.
A match contains 3 or 5 rounds (bo3 or bo5). In best of 5, the first team that has 3 rounds won, wins the match. If every team have the same number of players alive after the 5mins, the round is over and it's a draw. (means that a match can end on a score of 2-2). If a 1-1 happens during the "direct elimination", an extra round of 5 minutes will be played between the 2 teams. If after those 5 mins it's still a draw, then the team with the biggest amount of kill during the whole match will be qualified. After this decision if there is still a tie, the team with the biggest amount of rounds during the entire tournament will be qualified. 1vs1 against 3 players of each team can be decided in case there is still a tie.
The amount of players left in each match will be used as a tie-breaker if necessary.
The two best teams in each group will automatically qualify.
If there is a tie among third places, they will play an extra match on against each other to decide who advances. This match will be on BO3 format.
LAG / PING:
Since this tournament will be mainly hosted in NA servers, lagging will not be tolerated. If you have a stable connection, you will be able to play, but if your connection is unstable, you will be kicked from the match.
We will have referees watching over the match. If you are lagging on their screens, you are OUT of the round.
If nobody has died yet, your team will be allowed to bring a reserve in, IF he is able to join the server within 3 minutes (and only once in a match).
We will not wait for you to 'fix your connection'. If you are lagging, you are out of that round. You may comeback on the next round, if there is one.
IMPORTANT: By accepting to join this tournament you need to be completely aware that you will have the ping you have in our NA servers and that YOU lagging (for our referees/other players) will cause a kick on that player.

If another player crashes, then we will pause the match with an Air Horn. No one can move, and the player that crashed has exactly 5 mins to join back. The match continues after the player is back (Air Horn). If the player crashes and comes back with more items than they had before, his team automatically loses the match (not just the round)
