- Players will freely pick their civilization in Game 1. After that, players alternatively pick their civilization, starting with the winner of Game 1.

Map Pool:
All maps are listed in the order they are to be played in. Follow this link to download the maps for the tournament. Put these files in your RMT folder where your Treaty Patch installation is located.

Beginning with the RO16, players will ban one map from the map pool, with the higher seed player vetoing first. After the maps have been selected, each player is entitled to ban his opponent from playing one civilization for the series, with the higher seed player vetoing first.

All maps refer to the UI Blitz 7.2b versions.

- All games must be played on Treaty Patch.
- All games must be played as NR10. You may not unpause the game at the beginning until both players have written "11".
- All players must obey half-map; this means that when the treaty timer expires, all of your units must be on your side of the map.
- All results and recorded games must be reported using the match results submitter.
- You must be present in the tournament discord at 15:00 GMT on Sunday.
- All players must respect scheduled round timings. If a series is not in progress by the time a round is scheduled to end, the admins reserve the right to make a decision on the winner of the match.

- In case games need to be played on GameRanger, please have home cities and decks prepared!
- All players must adhere to the prospective tournament schedule. If a series is not in progress by the time a round is scheduled to end, the admins reserve the right to make a decision on the winner of the match.
- If you think your opponent somehow had an unfair advantage by using any exploits or mods, please PM one of the admins with the recorded game and screenshots.
- Admins reserve the right to disqualify any player(s) for failure to abide by the tournament rules. All admin decisions will be final.
- If you have any further questions, please ask in this thread!

not quite sure yet, could be esoc 1v1 treaty elo, jp 1v1 treaty elo, jp overall treaty elo, or a mix of two or all three

but you can certainly count on opinion

edit: yeah it'll almost certainly be an average of jp 1v1 treaty elo and overall treaty elo, both current and all-time.

Isn't NR10 an actual game mode though? Or does it start at 20?

NR10 is an actual game mode, this is basically nr40 in 10 mins so you get all vills already and you get a certain amount of shipments and res already available to you.

NR10 is an actual game mode though. If I was active I might've signed up for this thinking I was playing NR10. Maybe some people did

What might be important: if you record and play blitz it doesn’t automatically pause at start. So maybe agree in the lobby before who is pausing the game right at the beginning.

Yeah I would define blitz is tr40 but with the first 30 minutes of booming skipped and not call it nr10. I think the clarification was made though (albeit a little late) as soldier and tit pulled their signups.
