FTW Summer BM Tourny Rules
June 23, 2012

Double Elimination 5v5 BM Tournament. Double elimination means that if you lose, you get placed into another bracket along with other teams who have also lost. If you lose again, then you are out of the tournament for good!

Matches on Sunday and Tuesday (standard FTWGL times; 9:00 and 9:30 EST respectively)

Winner: Best of 3 Maps. In the event of ties, this means the first team to win two maps wins the match.

Maps are best of 13 rounds (+swap roles) & additional map(s) in event of a tie. Most total points wins the map.

Maps will be chosen by each team captain from a pool of approved maps (remember to use the correct explode times). The home team (the team listed first on the bracket) will choose Map 1 and the away team will choose Map 2. The team not choosing the map will be allowed to choose which color they wish to start as. In the event of an overtime the map will be chosen by a process of elimination. Each team captain takes turns eliminating a map from the map pool (which excludes the maps already used for the first two maps) until their is only one map remaining - that map will be played. The team with the most overall points chooses first. If points are even, the home team chooses first. It is recommended that team captains proceed with this process on IRC with a map list in front of them.

FTW Bomb Mode Tournament Config
Unless otherwise noted, all other FTWGL rules still apply. E.g. you can only play on one roster.


First off, as always, only North American servers can be used (unless two South American teams agree to use a different one for example).

Secondly, the Home team (the team seeded first) can either choose server or map for the first map.
EXAMPLE: If the home team chooses the server, then the away team gets to choose the map. For map 2, the away team chooses server and the home team chooses map.

For overtime, the team with the most overall points is awarded "Home team" status and gets to choose the server. The other team gets the server choice if there are additional maps.
