Tournament Format


For newcomers to the tournament, Console Clash 3 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

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

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 3: 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.

4 Bans Total: (2 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.

It looks like only one team has registered so far? Can you confirm? I can try to get a team together.
