So in place of the 40v40, I'll be hosting an open registration 5v5 BG Tourny!
I'll be taking registrations on the WoW forum from 6PM to 7PM. I'll be selecting 4 horde teams and 4 alliance teams to participate. If participation seems sparse, we'll run with as few as 4 teams, or draw more from the faction with more registrations.
5v5 RBGs is a possible addition to the game announced by Blizzard in a twitter post. It is the more probably of two solutions to the small amount of players quing RBGs (The other is quing with 5 and getting 5 others). In preparation, TCT has been running 5v5 battles against each other to see just how viable the bracket will be.
I'll be casting all the games from the streams, streaming two streams from the players on my own. If you'd rather listen to my audio or simply watch the other streams, I'll be providing links to them on the WoW forum post used for registration.
Let me just say, you're in for a treat!
1 Player who is capable of live streaming, preferably on Twitch.tv. Learn how from a great guide by Hydramist: http://hydramist.tv/portfolio/xsplit-setup-guide/
Live stream must be medium quality or higher and must persist through at least 80% of the match. If you're new to streaming, please test your latency! It can be bandwidth intensive
Minimum 1 Healer, Maximum 2.
Tank specs are prohibited to reduce stalemates. Be creative for FC maps.
Rocket boots and parachutes are prohibited
Battle for Gilneas
Temple of K
AB and EOTS didn't make the cut because there are simply too many nodes. We're going to keep an eye on Silvershard Mines for future matches. I believe it will still be entertaining based on how it plays out in 10v10 RBGs, but have concerns about battles being too small (frequent 2v2s and 1v1s are not exciting... or are they? You decide!)
I'm sure there will be many details to iron out, so look out for my thread tomorrow around 5PM. See you there!
December 14th @ 7PM, look out for live streams of a best of 3, 40v40 match between TCT and Dara Mactire. The event will be hosted by Game for Glory.
Rules For The Event:
1) Maps will be AV, Isle then random between AV / Isle
2) Goblin Gliders will not be allowed in either map (spot one on a stream? call it out!)
3) Lust, Brezzes and other CDs that are allowed in War Games (for whatever reason!) are permitted. It's too painful to police that, especially if it gets fat fingered.
4) Paid refs will be used to check for rules, hacks or other funny business
5) Darkspear Horde's lack of players will allow for TCT to invite up to 15 players. Skill Capped will be joining the fray!
