Announcing ESOC Autumn Championship 2016

Starting September 5th
600 dollar prizepool
streamed on twitch.tv/esoctv


Blackstar_OP, Samwise12, H2O. That could possibly be the most impressive list of aoe players one can think of. They have at least one thing in common: All of them are former ESOC Open Champions. We are proud to announce that another name might be added to that already impressive list of amazing players. We are proud to announce the ESOC Autumn Championship 2016.
The Autumn Championship is scheduled to start on the 5th of September. The prize pool will be 600 dollars; 350 for first place, 150 for second place and 50 for third place, plus an additional 50 dollars for the betting event hosted by Goodspeed.

Format
For this tournament we will apply the same format as the format of the Winter tournament. The 32 players with the highest 1v1 ELO will be seeded in the Round of 64, while the remaining players duke it out in a group stage, where those who score the most points will earn their place in the brackets alongside the top seeds. The civ picking rules in the winter tournament turned out to be very interesting so this tournament will feature the same picking rules to continue stimulating non-mirror matches. The tournament will be played on the latest version of the ESOC Patch.

Sign Ups
Like for the winter tournament, the signing up process is almost fully automated: All you need to do is login to your ESOC account and visit THIS PAGE to enter your username for the ESO account you will be using to sign up. If for whatever reason you need to or want to cancel your signup, simply revisit the signups page and click "Cancel my signup". The PR requirement for signing up will be pr 15. The signups will be closed the 2nd of September, so make sure to sign up in time.

Betting
And along with every ESOC tournament comes the betting event, of course. If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s betting on tournament matches with imaginary points. Watching the games live with points on the line is a lot of fun, participation is totally free and there’s a $50 prize for zoi the winner at the end of the tournament. Nothing to lose, much to gain! Sign up here.

Donations
As always, a big thanks to all those who donated and helped make the tournament possible. For future tournaments we will continue to be reliant on your goodwill. Even small donations help us a lot and allow us to continue hosting tournaments. For all the streams, the donation alert will be enabled. To access the link to donate and get it shown on stream, you will only have to type !donate and Nightbot will provide you with the link. You can also always donate normally here.

We hope to see all of you sign up for this tournament. Not only are you creating quality content and entertainment by joining, you are ensuring that ESOC will continue to carry out its mission!

Great to see a less insane prize-pool. I hope that the schedule will be enforced more strictly this tournament (the group stage should take two weeks at most), so that a 64p one without a group-stage can be hosted in between it and Winter. Maybe in the next tournament we can try the more conventional variant of winner-picks-first (on which LessLlamas has elaborated), to see how everyone likes that as well.

Please make damn sure to utilize the official AoE Twitch channel to its maximum potential.

I was so hyped when I read ''Samwise'', ''H2O'' and ''Blackstar_OP''. All of them currently left the game and it makes me so sad.

Great that you're hosting another big tournament!
Question concerning the PR limit: Is it the nilla PR, the TAD PR or the higher/lower one?

I'm sure these guys won't be inactive for ages. We have seen so many comebacks in the past few years.

people tend to donate a lot once the tournament starts up. Dont think it will be necessary to lower the tournament prize pool.

Based on past donations I think 600 dollars is a fair assumption given the amount of tournaments and smaller events we want to host.

OP. Signed up.

I think the reduced prize pool is a good decision.
