A 1v1 event starting this Saturday at 14 GMT with a unique twist
Over the summer historically there's been a gap in the schedule for events in the AOE3 world, last year we had this filled nicely with Escape's lan whilst this year we're seeing the success of streamers' personal tournements with Jailed's 2v2 tournemant and GUA's 1v1 tournemants both utilising a random aspect for both civilisations and maps. Although it's always fun to see Kaiserklein repeatedly get rolled the Aztec civilisation, I do understand that some players have been wanting a tournement that's slightly more standard for a while now. In light of that I'd like to run a Hidden or Smurf style tournement utlising rules much alike to the 2v2 Treaty Hidden Cup.

Rules
Smurf Specific rules
- 16 players total which are chosen by the top 16 signups by max EP and current JP Elo importantly the list of participants will be private
- Each player will be given a smurf which they are free to use for the duration of the event. However they cannot tell anyone their identity
- Chat will be discouraged by players, players can still chat in game but any chat pertaining to who they are could result in a disqualification
- As each game is going to be casted, casters will not know the identity of players.
- Seeding in the bracket will be done semi randomly, in this regard the seeding will be random but i might change the bracket slightly to keep games interesting.

General Tournament rules
- Bracket structure will be Best of 5s for the RO16, Best of 5s for the RO8, Best of 7s for semi-finals and a best of 7 for the final.
- New world championship rules will be used for civ picks, with the winner of the previous game picking first.
- Map set will be released at a later date
- In general the event will work in a similar fashion to previous weekend tournaments hosted by ESOC

Betting
Due to the nature of the event viewers will know who is participating overall but not who their smurf is. With this in mind $100 of the prize pool has been allocated for a betting event, which is free to enter, More Info HERE

Prizepool
The prize pool currently stands at $500 USD, with $100 from myself and an additional $400 added by ESOC. The prize pool with be split between the betting and the tourney, with $100 going towards the betting, $50 for the player who is able to hide their identity and $50 for the participant that guesses the most players correctly, and $400 for the prize pool of the event, this being split $200 for 1st $100 for 2nd and $50 for 3rd and 4th.

I think you shouldn't have revealed the player list to make this more interesting.

Well done Riot!

Lovely idea, but could you please format this page to look a bit more appealing. It's just a splurge of text, for the prize pool you should make it quick and easy to see!

well hiding my identity should be easy, I already have a plan, I just need to play civs that I'm not used to, and win the whole thing. no one will suspect. EASY

The formating on esoc is really confusing.
