3rd ANZ Royal Rumble!

Aus/NZ General Discussion
Hey there guys,

After a rocky couple of months I am back with another event for the ANZ community to enjoy, the 3rd ANZ Royal Rumble.

The event will be on 5 December 12pm(noon) AEDT

Players will be able to sign up on the day between 8am - 11am AEDT. More info below

For this Royal Rumble, I have decided to have all participants sign up ON THE DAY, I will open the registration form at 8am AEDT for players to sign up, I will post the link to this sign up form on the forums and my personal twitter https://twitter.com/mortondshort . I have decided to do sign ups this way due to half of the players not showing up on the day and causing a lot of hassle for me when making the teams. Hopefully this will mean that teams will be a lot more balanced and organised compared to past Royal Rumbles.

The tournament will work as follows -

Players will sign up alone, and then be placed in a team based on their skill level, I will try to create the teams so that the range of skill level is as high as possible in each team, this will make it so that the higher skill players can share their experience and knowledge with the new or less skilled players.

The tournament will run a double elimination format, with all games being bo1 except the final game which will be bo3.

The game drafts will be done using http://heroesdraft.com/ and using 2 bans per team, the maps will be chosen via 'Random Map'.

Each team will be assigned a captain, they will then be added by the admins if their game is going to be streamed/shoutcasted.

There are no prizes for this event at this time, I will ask Blizzard again if they could kindly give out skins to the winning team, but the main reason for this tournament is for every player in the ANZ community to have the chance at playing in a competitive environment.
If anyone would like to donate skins for the event, you can find how to contact me below.

The event will be live streamed at http://www.twitch.tv/skimmynz and shoutcasted by Skimmy and Starving.

If you have any questions or would like to donate skins for prizes, you can either reply to this forum post, add me in game Morton#1373 or contact me on twitter at https://twitter.com/mortondshort.

I really look forward to having another Royal Rumble and hope that people spread the word and get as many people involved as possible!

I hope you are as hype as we are :D
Question

How will you determine player skill to make it as balanced as possible?

I will be looking every player up on hotslogs to get a rough idea of the players' skill :)
There will also be an area in the sign up form to say what rank/level each player is which gives me a general idea as well
I'll be signing up too! Looking forward to it. =)
Hello :) I'll tag along if I'm well enough it looks like a lot of fun! Cheers.
THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME.
Think I'll be around for this one but depending on how long it goes for (and if my team's still in it), I'd have to bail around 4ish.

Shouldn't be too hard filling spots on the go eh?

Yep that's all good, it is pretty easy to find subs to fill in for the later on games due to teams being knocked out.

When people need to be subbed out, I will only sub in players with around the same skill level as the player that has to leave
GL tomorrow lads, I'll be watching as always. #PickGazlowe
I don't have a hotslog thing (haven't uploaded my replays anywhere) so it might be difficult to rank / put me in a team. Would I still be able to participate?
