Civilization Rules

To encourage a range of native involved matchups we will use a new set of rules. A native will be played in every game in the event!

Game 1: Both players agree to any native vs native matchup. If agreement cannot be made then a randomly selected native mirror will be picked.

The winner of game 1 picks a native civ and the loser then picks one of the three allowed civilizations. From that point on alternating pick is in place and each player can only use each native civilization once.


Player A chooses Aztec
, Player B must choose:
Port, India, or Spain

Player A chooses Iroquois
, Player B must choose:
Dutch, German, or France

Player A chooses Sioux,
Player B must choose:
Russia, Japan, or Spain

Example:

Game 1: Player A picks Iro and Player B picks Aztec.
Player A wins [1-0]

Game 2: Player A picks first and picks Iro.
Player B must choose: Dutch, German, or France.
Player B chooses France.
Player A wins [2-0]

Game 3: Player B chooses Sioux.
Player A must choose:
Russia, Japan, or Spain.
Player A chooses Spain.
Player B wins [2-1]

Game 4: Player A chooses first and cannot play Iro (Played in game 2)
Player A chooses aztecs.
Player B must choose:
Port, India, or Spain
Player B chooses India.
Player A wins the series [3-1]

Gameplay Rules

1.1 - Players will freely pick their civilization in game 1. After that, players alternatively pick their civilization, starting with the winner of game 1. Game 1 must be a native civilization for each player.

1.2 - Every player must respect their opponent, casters and organizers. Misbehavior will result in a warning and can lead into disqualification. Racism and/or insults will not be tolerated.

1.3 - Every game must be recorded.

1.4 - When a player disconnects from the internet BEFORE 2 minutes, the player can (when both agree) restart and replay the game. When the opponent does not agree to restart, the outcome of the game will be determined by the tournament staff.

1.5 - When a player disconnects AFTER 2 minutes, the players can (when both agree) restart and replay the game. When the opponent does not agree to restart, the player who lost connection will be given a loss.

1.6 - Every player may restart a game BEFORE the 2 minute mark when necessary. This is allowed ONCE per map when the game is NOT casted by an official caster. Restarts for CASTED games will be determined by the caster him/herself.

1.7 - The caster is allowed to restart a game as many times as necessary for optimal play.

1.8 - All games must be submitted to the "Tournament Record Games" forum via the match submission tool: http://eso-community.net/submit_match_results.php

1.9 - Recorded games must be renamed and posted to match the stick in the recorded games section.

1.10 - Players must be respectable to each other when selecting civilizations in a game. Players cannot intentionally change to unfair match-ups, or otherwise be difficult to agree to a match-up. The tournament staff reserves the right to two possible outcomes. 1. If only one player is deemed challenging, then that player will be forced to pick their civilization first. 2. If both players are disagreeable then blind pick will be enforced. This decision is made by the staff.

so its technically possible to play this native only tournament without playing any native civs?

first pick is free, after that you just pick a tad/euro civ every time from the pool

I think it's quite clear: after game 1 someone (I don't know if the loser or the winner) picks one of the 3 native civs, which is „countered" by its equivalent from the pool by the other player. The question is, how is the MU chosen in the first game? :hmm:

I'm slightly confused. If this is a 'WarChiefs Classic' tournament, why would it even involve TAD and nilla civs? The thing that I heard people say is "We want a tourney with native civs only."

Each and every game played in this tourney will involve at least one native civ afaik. nilla and tad for a little bit of diversity since just 3 civs will get real boring real soon

why not? @somppukunkku

sioux is the only one that has a decent civ pool that doesnt almost hard counter them. aztec struggle vs brits and france, though india is a good mu vs them on most maps i guess.

iro just flat out loses to spain and otto on ep, and they are at best even vs dutch.

sioux on the other hand beats japan and russia, and they china is a fair mu for them. they also beat the other nat civs. i'm not sure who wins between aztecs and iro atm, it used to be ez mu for iro, but iro is pretty bad for colonial play atm and they cant ff vs aztecs i think.
