KEK-Tourney🍪 by Ezad

Dear Esoc People,

I am excited to announce the First KEK🍪-Serie Tournament. This tournament format will highlight maps that are often overlooked in the standard map pool selection.

General Tournament rules:
- The Tournament will contain 8 invited Players only
- Players will play on: Old competetive, forgotten and Trolly maps
- Players will have the option to ban specific maps, but there will not be bans on civilizations.
- Some General Tourney rules:
Spoiler

This Tourney:

- Players have to sign up in "MyEsoc" with:
Name & Link to steamprofile
- If there are more than 8 players who signed up for the tournament: Myself (and admins) will decide individually, who will take part in this event. Eventually everyone can sign up, but the final decision belongs to the Admins.
-Players will be invited after the Signup Deadline
- Crucial Reminder: In order to participate in the event, it is essential to have "The African Royals" and "Knights of the Mediterranean" DLCs. The USA/Mexico DLCs are not mandatory for this tournament. This is due to the fact that specific maps can only be accessed with the DLC content.
-There wont be any seeding in this tournament. All playermatchups in the bracket will be determined randomly live on monday 1st april.
- No Civbans, There are no restrictions on the 22 civilizations that can be selected.
- Mapbans, Each Player will have the option to ban one map of the mappool given.
- No Civresets: in a Bo7, Players are forced to play 7 different civs, Finals 9 civs.
- Civpicks: Players will use the civpicktool for the matchups from this present: https://aoe2cm.net/preset/TeKVG
- Games need to be livecasted to avoid OOS Replays due special maps. Players have to stay in contact with the Casters the whole series

glad to see the admin coinflip making a return
If I were a petal
And plucked, or moth, plucked
From flowers or pollen froth
To wither on a young child’s
Display. Fetch
Me a ribbon, they, all dead
Things scream.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks. I imagine the selection will be based on ELO?

Not only, Elo helps, but we will filtrate, who fits the best in this tourney. A bit hard when there are more than 8 good players ofc :P
