    The application period for the Awesomenauts League with Bets Season 2 has ended. There have been 18 teams who have had their application accepted! Those teams will now move on to the next stage: tryouts.

    The goal of these tryouts is to rank teams according to the following criteria:
    • Skill level
    • Game knowledge
    • Entertainment value
    • Sportsmanship

    Before introducing the tryout bracket, an explanation is necessary. The bracket is divided into two segments: the outer bracket and the inner bracket. This is not a traditional bracket; the winners of the outer bracket will not advance to play against other winners of the outer bracket.

    Instead, teams will be placed within the inner bracket depending on the outcome of the outer bracket. These inner bracket positions are predetermined - they will be blurred out until results from the outer bracket are submitted. This is to prevent potential situations where teams will lose on purpose to "get a better match up".

    Remember, winning/losing does not guaranteed qualifying/elimination. These match ups are chosen to rank teams amongst each other. Therefore, if two of the best teams are against each other in both segments of the bracket, chances are both teams will qualify for the league regardless (if they meet the necessary criteria). The focus on each match should be to win and show your best game play because this will give you the best chance of ranking high and qualifying for the League.

    With that out of the way, here is what the bracket looks like, with the inner bracket blurred out:

      Image

    As you can see, the outer bracket will be played on Aiguillon and the inner bracket will be played on Ribbit IV. Each match for the tryouts will be best of 1, therefore, you will only play a total of two games throughout the entirety of the tryouts.

    #ALWB Tryout Draft

    • A referee will be assigned to each Match from the list of referees
      • If a referee is unavailable, then the next referee on the list will be assigned to the match
      • If no referee is available, then both teams can agree on a referee of their choice
    • The following is the draft process:
      1. Simultaneously, each team announces their starting players
      2. Simultaneously, each team submits one ban to the referee
        • Both teams can submit identical bans
        • The ban will be considered game wide and will effect both teams for that game only
      3. Simultaneously, each team submits their first pick they intend on playing to the referee
        • Teams are prohibited from selecting a ban
        • Both teams can submit identical picks
      4. Simultaneously, each team submits their second ban to the referee
        • The ban cannot be one that has already been picked
        • Both teams can submit identical bans
        • The ban will be considered game wide and will effect both teams for that game only
      5. Simultaneously, each team submits their second pick they intend on playing to the referee
        • Teams are prohibted from selecting a ban
        • Both teams can submit identical picks
      6. Simultaneously, each team submits their third ban to the referee
        • The ban cannot be one that has already been picked
        • Both teams can submit identical bans
        • The ban will be considered game wide and will effect both teams for that game only
      7. Simultaneously, each team submits their third pick they intend on playing to the referee
        • Teams are prohibted from selecting a ban
        • Both teams can submit identical picks

    Here is an example of the draft:
    Example wrote:
    BOSS vs. NN
    Map: Ribbit IV
    1. BOSS bans Coco, NN bans Nibbs
    2. BOSS picks Skree, NN picks Froggy
    3. BOSS bans Leon, NN bans Leon
    4. BOSS picks Ayla, NN picks Clunk
    5. BOSS bans Vinnie, NN bans Ted
    6. BOSS picks Froggy, NN picks Lonestar

    Bans: Coco, Nibbs, Leon, Vinnie, Ted
    BOSS Line up: Skree, Ayla, Froggy
    NN Line up: Froggy, Clunk, Lonestar


    BOTH teams must submit results to awesomenautsleaguewithbets@gmail.com containing the below information:
    • A copy of the replay in .zip format
    • Both team names
    • The draft process shown above
    • Additionally, time stamps of highlight reel plays (Optional, but strongly encouraged for videos!

    How to Schedule Games

    For teams who are unfamiliar with this style of tournaments, teams will be responsible for scheduling their own games within a specific time frame.
    1. Locate your team on the tryout bracket and determine which team you are matched up against
    2. Locate your enemies team on the registered teams list
    3. Add your enemies' team captain on Steam
    4. Determine the best available date within the time frame for both teams
      If there are conflicts while scheduling games, contact me on Steam.
    5. Contact a referee and give them a heads up

    List of Referees:

    Time Frames

    Below are the time frames for each tryout:
    • The outer bracket (tryout 1) June 12th to 18th
    • The inner bracket (tryout 2) June 19th to 25th

    The sooner the games are completed the better. The inner bracket will be revealed as the outer bracket is completed. Teams will be notified via Steam who their opponent is for the inner bracket. Therefore, teams may be expected to finish their inner bracket match up sooner than the time frame.

    Please play your games as fast as possible. There is a lot of work that happens in the back end and it will make it easier and allow more time for more things to be completed on time. We both win!

    Good luck to both teams and have fun!

The bracket has been updated slightly to reflect the results of the games that have already been played. Some matches for the inner bracket have been determined.

Please get your games in as soon as you can even though it wasn't expected of teams to play their inner bracket match for a few days. The sooner they are played, the sooner I can work on some of the cool new things of Season 2.

For the purpose of this bracket only, blue indicates a winner and red indicates a loser.

The outer bracket has been fully completed. The entire inner bracket matches have been determined, please check the above post for your match up, if you haven't already.

Remember to submit results. If I don't get the outer bracket results in email form by tomorrow, then a lot of teams will have a decreased odds of being selected as one of the teams.

Here is what the predetermined bracket looked like:
