Introduction


A few months have passed since the last tournament came around for PlayStation 4. Though it has been a while, we are pleased to officially announce the second edition of Console Clash for PS4!

In case you are unfamiliar, Console Clash is a new tournament series created by Alexeus of the Awesomenauts League Project Initiative, that is dedicated to establishing competitive events for the PS4 & XB1 console versions of Awesomenauts.

Prize Pool


Here is the current prize offered to the teams competing in the tournament:

1st Place - $30 Minimum + Additional $30*.

*Aaron12906m will match the pot upon 8 teams being registered.

If you’d like to contribute prizes to this event or any future ones, please email us at AwesomenautsLeagueProject@gmail.com or send a private message directly to me on the forums.

How to Register/Play


Registration: To play in this tournament, you will need to fill in a registration form hosted at this link here: https://goo.gl/forms/PXGks57b6ZYMrH813

Confirming Registration/Check Other Teams: To ensure that your team has signed up for the tournament properly, you may clink on this link here and you should see your team and others registered showing up on the list: http://bit.ly/2ldaiNe

Roster Changes: If your team line-up changes at any point before the tournament begins, then please post a reply on this forum thread or send Alexeus a PM on the forums.

Where to Meet: Once you have completed registration, teams will need to meet up at the Console Clash 2 PS4 group chat during the days of the event. You will receive an invite to the group chat from the staff (Alexeus/TheUnholyicon/Aaron12906m) and are expected to show up for check-in.

Times/Dates


Both days will have a check-in period that begins at 16:00 UTC, with the tournament starting at 17:00 UTC. Here are the countdown timers for each day, both of which will auto-convert the time to your region’s respective time-zone.

March 4th Pools: http://bit.ly/2l95Jqe
March 5th Finals: http://bit.ly/2kbOZe5

CHECK-IN START TIME:
16:00 UTC
BRACKET START TIME: 17:00 UTC

Tournament Format

For newcomers to the tournament, Console Clash 2 is a two-day event that uses a multiple-stage bracket format featuring a qualifying pool on the first day, and then a finalist’s bracket on the second.

(Day 1) Pools

All teams that are ready after check-in will be placed into pools where they must fight every other opponent once. Teams will receive a point for each victory they earn in a set, with the teams that have the most points by the end of the bracket qualifying into the finals on Day 2.

(Day 2)Finals

The qualifying teams are then invited to a finals bracket on Sunday where the remaining teams fight it out in a double elimination bracket, from which a champion will finally be decided.

Bracket Scaling

Depending on the amount of teams that appear on the day of the tournament after check-in. The bracket will scale to accommodate to the numbers present.

Draft Rules/Rule-Set

All drafts will be done at http://www.NautsDrafter.com before every round, of which has been optimized for console use. Here are all the rules for the tournament below.

Set/Streaming Rules

Pools:
-Best 2 out of 3 for All Sets

Double elimination:
-Best 2 out of 3: for all matches except Grand Finals
-Best 3 out of 5: for Grand Finals Only

Winner’s Side earns a one-game Advantage in Grand Finals


Recording Rules:
-Teams are allowed to stream all tournament games as they wish.

Recording Recommendations:
-Enable Past-Broadcasts on your Twitch page & Highlight the streams for archiving.
-Please enable Voice-Chat of your team to show up during matches. (You may mute your stream during drafts if you want.)
-Take Screenshots/Footage of your results in the case of a dispute.
-Label your Broadcasts Accordingly. (E.X: “Console Clash 2: Team A vs Team B”)
-If you are not capable of streaming your match, or it begins to affect your match quality then you don’t need to worry about it. (If someone else can instead, that would be preferable.)

Draft Rules


NautsDrafter is required for all tournaments.

-Draft Settings must be set to “Default” with the correct position for each team.

6 Bans Total: (3 for each team)
6 Picks Total: (3 for each Team)

Legal Maps (Maps allowed in Draft.)
-Ribbit IV
-Sorona
-Aiguillion

Banned Maps (Maps not allowed in Draft.)

-AI 205
-AI 404
-Starstorm

Bans apply to both teams:
-Which means a banned character can’t be played by either team.

Additional Rules:
-No Perma-Banned Characters
-No Mirrors

In Pools & Double Elimination: Teams are decided by seed number.
-Lowest Seed: Team 1
-Highest Seed: Team 2

You must state which players are participating before the draft begins.


First Round Rules

A Veto phase begins before the first round:
-Team 1 will ban a map from play in the round.
(e.x: Team 1 bans Ribbit, so the round can’t be played on ribbit.)
-Team 2 will choose what map to play on from the available map pool.

Second Round & Beyond Rules

After the first round, there is no veto. Instead the losing team will choose both the draft order and which map the following round will be played on.


-(e.x: KillCups lost to WaterBowls first round. So 2nd round they may choose which team they want to be for the next draft. (They want to be Team 2 over Team 1, so they may do that.) They also want to pick ribbit as it is the losing team’s map choice for every round after the first.)

Game Rules


Lobby Rules:
-Lag-tests can be done before or after the draft. Optional and up to both parties.
-No bots allowed
-Only players established before the draft may join.

Disconnect rules:
-If a player disconnects during a match after first blood has been drawn or a turret from either side has cracked on the mini-map. Then the match will continue as normal without breaks.

First of all, thank you very much for those organizing the tournament!

Then, my newbie question: I'm afraid I can't understand how the naut-ban thing works. Can anybody provide a complete example similar to that provided for the map ban? E.g., first Team A bans blablabla and picks blablabla, then Team B...

Thank you very much in advance! :thumb:

Awesome news again Alexeus. Sorry it took me so long to respond, but we did sign up right away.

@MrSolrac if you want I can run you through the Nautsdrafter. It's a website that has a very smooth pick and ban system already in place. It is what we used for Console Clash 1 and worked amazing. I ran through it will all the teams beforehand so they knew how to work it come the day of the tournament.
So if you and your team would like to scrim, or you can drop in my stream and I can give you a run down and we can set one up.
Hope to see many teams sign up, the first event was alot of fun.

Today marks the end of Console Clash 2!

Overall, this event has been a blast to run. With more attendees than before and more exciting games in comparison to the last one.

Many thanks to Aaron12906m & NizStar for increasing the existing prize pool from $30 to $70.
With Aaron matching the $30 Minimum pot and NizStar tossing in an extra $10, making up the final prize-pool.


The Champions of today are “WWJVDD?” of whom defeated “Clean-Up Crew” in the finals with a 3-1 Lead!

“WWJVDD?” Team Members consisted of:
TheUnholyIcon, Aaron12906m & O_M_E_G_A_J

Both teams had a dominating performance in the Day 1 Pools. Alongside the fact that now each team has won a Console Clash Tournament! With Clean-Up Crew having won the last tournament under the name “W.A.R Loaders”.

You can find the Finals set within the past broadcasts of:

https://www.twitch.tv/theunholyicon/profile & https://www.twitch.tv/zinoidies/profile

Thank you to all of the finalists & participants who played in today’s games and got as far as they did. Glad to see that you all had a great time playing in the tournament with one another!

In closing, It was great to see so many new faces today joining for the first time. Of which I hope are now more interested in playing matches of this style!

If you didn't play in this event due to hesitance. I encourage you to jump in and take the plunge, since everyone involved in the scene is happy to play, train or team with newcomers to get better at the game or to enjoy themselves!

So if you can make it, I implore you to entertain the idea! Since this won’t be the last time we’ll be here. :)

Thanks for watching, following and participating in Console Clash 2!


From
-Alexeus & The ALP Initiative.
