Team Creation Details

  • A group of 8 selectors will select/draft from a pool of 8 selectees.
  • The 8 selectors will be from the previous 1v1 summer 2015 tourney.
  • The 8 selectors will draft in order opposite of how they placed in the tourney. 8th place finisher picks 1st, 7th place picks 2nd, an so on.
  • If a player in the top 8 will not participate, all the lower places will move up a slot.
  • Players must choose a team name, limited to 15 Characters.

Bracket Seeding

We will use the same formula as per the last tourney, listed below. Add the 2 player ranks value for a team total overall bracket rank. Teams will be ranked in order from highest to lowest for a bracket seed.

Players will be entered into the bracket system with a value that is derived by using a combination of overall Halo MCC Kills, Assists, Deaths and highest Playlist Ranking. We will take the K/A/D ratio and add 10% of the highest Playlist Ranking value.

Example overall bracket ranking value: A player with 6000 kills, 2500 assists, 4500 deaths, highest skill rank 26. ((6000 + 2500) ÷ 4500) + 2.6 = 4.489.

Highest seeded team will always be red team, lower seeded team will be blue team.

Tourney Gameplay

  • Highest seeded team will be always be Red Team, lowest seed is always Blue.
  • Each selected map/gametype combination will be used for all series of a round.
  • All gametypes will have a tie breaker resolution if a game ends in a tie.

  • The Slayer gametype will be used only once in a round/series.
  • A map/gametype combination will not be repeated over the course of two rounds.
  • It will be CRITICAL to have 2 game moderators (hosts) for the first 3 rounds.

  • Each round will be given 1½ hours to complete a series.
  • A team will receive a series/forfeit if they are unable to start their series within 15 minutes of the starting match time.
  • If for any reason, a team is unable to start the final game to complete the series within the final 30 minutes of the 1½ hour block, this team will receive a forfeit. Such reasons as missing a player, network issues, or other technical issues.
