Dates: This tourney will begin on 11/25 (weekend after Thanksgiving), end on 1/7 (weekend after New Year's), and then the top 2 teams will play a championship match. The team sign-up deadline is 12/2, and the trade deadline is 12/14 (midway). Players who haven't previously played in a match can join teams whenever.
Rule caveats: Spacewalking is enabled for Polis Massa, non-negotiable CTF maps are Death Star and Tantive. Challenging will now be alternating map/faction picks. Example: STR challenges BWW to a match. STR picks map 1, BWW picks faction 1. BWW picks map 2, STR picks faction 2.
Format: It is still classic 4v4 CS conquest and CTF, though the rules can bend due to gentleman's agreements. However, because the top 2 advance, open ladder has been modified to a loose, repeating double round-robin. Teams must play every other team at least twice before playing a specific team a third time.
Example: STR plays BWW twice. STR cannot play BWW a third time unless they have played Destroyer's and Shotty's team two times as well. Once STR has played everyone twice, the limit resets, so they cannot play BWW a 5th time (total) unless they play Destroyer and Shotty's team 4 times (total).
All of these rules are subject to change via vote from the committee. All rules not mentioned are the same as the ones used in season 14 and the previous winter tournament (viewtopic.php?f=118&t=1309
