Civilization Rules:

Players will be told the map, and then both players will log out and whisper the host when they are both ready for the invite. Players cannot play the same civ in back to back games. If there are no casters, the players shall decide on a map and then log out, and relog in with their selected civilizations. All games shall be played in Champion Mode.

Map Pool:

Equal footing, Shelter pass, Arabia, Mountain Crossing, Coastal, Great Lake, Big Island, Treasure Island, Oasis

Starting Map / Round:

Round 1 - Equal Footing
Round 2 - Treasure Island
Round 3 - Coastal
Round 4 - Arabia
Semi-Finals - Sheltered Pass
Finals - Equal Footing

Each map can only be played a maximum of 1 time per series. The loser of the previous game chooses the map for the next game. (ex. player A vs player B, Player A wins game 1, player B then picks the map for game 2. Player A wins game 2, Player B then picks the map for game 3.)

Veto Rule:

Each player gets 1 veto per series, regardless of how many games are in the series. The vetoes will be given out live during the matches at any time a player decides to veto a map. If a player decides not to use a veto, than the veto does NOT get transferred to the other player.

Casting Rules

It is every players responsibility to work with tournament staff for the casting of games.

Only casters that have been authorized by the tournament staff will be permitted to stream matches.

The players in casted matches will be required to schedule their matches with their opponents and with the authorized caster(s).

All streamed games must have a time delay of 2 minutes.

The tournament staff reserves the right to extend the deadline of the match if deemed appropriate.

No additional observers may be present in games.

Gameplay Rules:

  • Caster's can restart the game within 1 minute as many times as they want if they discover map imbalances. Players can ask for a restart within 1 mintue if the casters find it worthy of a restart.
  • There is absolutely no smurfing allowed in this tournament. (Player's can only sign up with one account.). Also sign up with your main account. If a player is suspected of signing up with multuiple accounts we will look into it. If we find enough proof we will remove them from the tournament right away and they will forfeit any prize money they may have won. They will also very likely be banned from future ESOC events.
  • If a player wins a cash prize and fails to claim their prize within 1 month the prize will then be given back to the AOEO bank.
  • All games must have a recorded screen shot of the result and that shall be uploaded with the match result.
  • Balance patches may be released during this tournament, games will be played on the newest patch (It is only possible to play on the latest patches)

Is there going to be a rule that if both players don't have access to babylon and norse (later on in tournament) because they aren't a champion supporter that neither player can use them? Might be worth considering to have a fair playing field.

that is indeed the plan. if 1 of the 2 doesnt have access to a civ at the time of the series, neither player is allowed to play that civ.
