Tournament format


The following map will be used for all matches:
 

It comes with the following special rules:
 

  1. Each cell on this map is either an Ice (bleu) or Grass (green) cell.
  2. A unit can only target a cell of the same type (Ice or Grass) that they’re currently occupying.
  3. For Area of Effect spells, only cells (and unit contained within) that are the same type as the one where the caster is standing are considered targeted by the spell.
  4. The Punch spell ignores all these restrictions.

The map will stay in the same position for the whole tournament.

The format used for the championship will be Season. Players will keep their team for the entirety of the tournament.

First phase of the tournament is a Swiss round tournament. At the end of this phase, the top 16 players will enter a double-elimination bracket until the champion wins over all!

Games may last a maximum of 50 minutes.

Starting with top 16: after 50 minutes of game time, if no player has won the game when the end of allowed time is announced, the active player finishes his turn, then 6-7 extra turns are played, so that both players have played an equal number of turns once these extra turns are over. Once the extra turns are over, if no player has won, the winner will be the one with the most GG. If the game is still in a draw, the game keeps going until one player has more GG than the other.

Each player has five minutes maximum to play their turn. The use of a device giving an indication of the time is authorized so the players can estimate the duration of their turn.

If players won't play, qualifying can slip for other player ?

Is this the final list?
Are any brazillians supposed to make it to 2017 world championship yet?

Hello,
It would help a lot if we would have infos about the tournament structure, format, boss and bankist of the tournament and prizes for the decision if people will come and how they book their trip. Especially how long it will go if people want to head home at sunday, if the tournament will be closing at 4p.m. for example.

Every info you could give to the players will be much appreciated as soon as it can be given.
Thank you

There is a small mistake with the kamas on the map - on the right column there are 2 Kama, but not on the left one, they are on the second column from the left

I have a relevant question about the qualified players... Will we can use OVA pack and Maskemane's Masks in World Championship?

One interesting question were asked in this thread :

http://www.krosmaster.com/fr/forum/1156-questions-regles/63966-wolrd-map-2017-rouling-question?page=1

A summary of the clarification :

The rule 2 specify :

A unit can only target a cell of the same type (Ice or Grass) that they’re currently occupying.

It implies that you can't primary target. If you can't target, then you can't primary target; the third point makes only meaning with this reading. But for a better understanding we will modify it tomorrow.
Actually, in french, the rule precises that point 2 is about primary target, it was a loss in the translation.

Rule 2, more precise :

A unit can only target, as primary target, a cell of the same type (Ice or Grass) that they're currently occupying.
