Hosted by HeightofAbsurdity, Spook, Karasu and Simon Exile
Group A begins at 12:00PM EST
Group B begins at 3:00PM EST
Group C begins at 6:00PM EST**
Region: NA (North America)
Friendly Fire: 100%
Third Person: Disabled
Modifications: Mercenaries Mod
Class Balance: 50% rule (1 Archer Limit)
Duel: 1v1 for side
Map Selection: Pre-determined
Projectiles: Single Firepot Limit
Tournament Format: 12-team round robin with double elimination playoffs
Winning Conditions:** Teams will play the map both attacking and defending. Most progress wins. If the progress is the same, then the team with the fastest completed objective time wins. If all else fails, Best 2 out of 3 rounds of 5v5 LTS on Moor.
Spectators: Spectators are not allowed. The only people allowed in the server during a match are the players, refs, and streamers. It is the responsibility of the team to make sure they have no members of their roster or a merc in the server when it starts. If that person is AFK, please ask the ref to check and get rid of them. If a spectator is found to have been in the match, that team will forfeit that match.
Referees: To Be Decided. However if you want to be a referee just ask in the thread. Referees will not be allowed to referee their own matches. Decisions by The Council of Absurdity will be final. However if you believe another referee made an incorrect call, come to the cohost in charge of your match (will be found on the schedule) and it will be worked out. A referee must take a screenshot of the final score between the two teams and either give it to either the cohost in charge of that match or post it in the tournament thread on the TBS forums with the score and participating teams.
In-match Rules: Execute good sportsmanship. No trash-talking, trolling, whining, or complaining. Basically don’t be a jerk. You will get one warning. If you do any of these things again you will be banned from the server. If two players are ejected from the same team then that team automatically forfeits the match. In the event of a disconnect or lag spike, if the team can’t sort it out within their remaining pause time and they have no substitute, the match will result in the forfeiture of that team.
Time: 12:00 PM EST, April 11th and 1PM EST, April 12th. If need be, any matches left will be played on the following weekend. A schedule will be available at the start of the TBS forum post.
Roster & Roster Time Limit: Rosters may be changed up to April 10th 11:59PM PST. If you’re found to break this rule, please revert back to the old roster/team, or you will be DQ’d. The match will be played with six players. Each team will be allowed a single mercenary (a substitute not already on any rosters) per match in-case someone is unable to play. All mercenaries must be approved by a tournament host to ensure fair-play and consistency and are not to be listed on your forum post. You may put as many players on your roster as you’d like up to 25 players. Substitutes are not allowed to play for any other team nor are they allowed to make their own team. In order to sub a new player in, post the substitution in chat. If you feel it necessary, please call for a pause from the ref to ensure the substitution goes smoothly.

Disqualification (DQ): If your team does not show up within the 5 minute grace period after the match is scheduled, the rest of the time waited will be subtracted from the team’s pause time. If the pause time runs out, then that team is disqualified.
**The tournament directors (The Council of Absurdity) are allowed to change the rules as they see fit.
Registration will take place on the forums. Post in this thread with your clan/team name, preferred server location, captain & roster. The captain will serve as a liason between the tournament staff and your team.
All players must make public their Steam profile on or before April 11th. Known or suspected alt accounts will be prohibited from participating.
Each clan must be comprised of individuals actually on the roster of that clan/group.
The deadline for roster changes or new teams is April 10th, 11:59PM PST. If you try to change your roster after the deadline you will be given the chance to change your roster back to what it was originally. If you fail to revert your roster, your team will be removed from the tournament and taken off the brackets.
The match will be played with six players. Each team will be allowed a single substitute in-case someone from their main lineup is unable to play. You may put as many players on your roster as you’d like (minimum 6) that are actually a part of your respective team. Substitutes are not allowed to play for any other team nor are they allowed to make their own team. In order to sub a new player in during the match, post the substitution in chat. If you feel it necessary, please call for a pause from the ref to ensure the substitution goes smoothly.
2. Scheduling, Attendance and Score Reporting
A schedule will be posted once the brackets are finalized that will detail the times that teams will play and what server they will play on.
Each match must have at least one non-playing referee present. Otherwise the match does not count. The referee must take a screenshot of the final score and post it either in this thread (with score & teams involved) or submit it to a tournament director through some other method and have them confirm reception of it.
The matches will be played at the scheduled times. If the previous matches for the server have finished early and both teams are ready before the scheduled time, they can agree to talk to the cohost responsible for their match and start the match early. If the match starts later than expected, the five minute grace period begins as soon as both teams have been given the go ahead.
Teams are only allowed to play the players that are on that team’s roster and a maximum of one mercenary (a substitute who is not on any roster for any team in the tournament) per match. Mercenaries, once employed, may only play for one team throughout the tournament. If a team attempts to field a roster that doesn’t meet these requirements, they will be disqualified from the tournament. They may play the rest of their games out for fun under the understanding that tournament resources will prioritize other games.
Each team will be advised to make the check-in time scheduled 10 minutes before the match takes place. If a team is not ready within the 5 minute grace period of when the match is scheduled to take place, pause time will begin to be subtracted from the offending team. When that team runs out of pause time, they will be disqualified.
The seeding/group selection will be randomized.
Server location will be decided by the preferred location set during registration, and the number of players from each region.
All matches will be played on the server assigned by the schedule unless the teams agree to use another server that meets all the server conditions. The server will then have to be investigated by a ref/cohost and have the ref/cohost given the admin password.
The admin password for each server will be changed and given to the ref for the duration of the match.
Each server will have to have all settings specified by the rules in place.
A team may, at any point before or between matches, opt to change to a tournament provided server or, if also agreed upon by the other team, another server that satisfies all the conditions above. A 5 minute transition grace period is allowed for the server switch.
A referee must verify that all game settings for that server are in keeping with the tournament’s game settings.
4. Connection Issues
If a team suffers connection issues they will be allowed to use pause time (see Section 9: Timeouts) to sort the problem out.
If a player has a ping above 105 before the match begins, then the map will be changed to the map that will be played on and the teams will be asked to go to the middle and fight the other team, focusing on the player with a ping of 105 or greater. If the team agrees that it is playable, then that player can play so long as their ping doesn’t consistently spike or the refs notice multiple desyncs and instances of lag. The other team can, at any time, ask the team with the high-ping player to find a substitute for any reason. If this occurs, then there will be a 5 minute grace period for the team with the high-ping player to find a substitute. Any additional pause time will be subtracted from the team looking for the substitute.
If a person(s) has a lag spike or desync, that player will be issued a warning. After two warnings, the third violation will result in that player being ejected from the game.
- Third person is disabled and not allowed.
- Friendly Fire will be set to 100%
- Tournament Mode Enabled
- Hillside Pyre
7. Class Balance
- 50% Rule: No more than half of a team’s composition can be the same class.
- 1 Archer Limit
- 1 Firepot Limit
- Spectators are not allowed. The only people allowed in the server during a match are the players, refs, and streamers. It is the responsibility of the team to make sure they have no members of their roster or a merc in the server when it starts. If that person is AFK, please ask the ref to check and get rid of them. If a spectator is found to have been in the match, that team will forfeit that match.
- Each team will be allowed 10 minutes of pause time over the course of the entire match starting when both teams have readied up. If the pause exceeds 10 minutes or the player(s) is/are still unable to play, then that team is disqualified.
10. Format and Winning Conditions
Each team will play the map twice, once defending and once attacking. The team that progresses farther on offense or, if equal progress is made, the team that completed the objectives in a faster time wins. If the match is rendered too close to call by any of the officiating refs, then the match will be decided by tiebreaker: best 2 out of 3 rounds of LTS on Arena. If the Grand Finals go into a tiebreaker, then the teams will play until one team has won 2 more rounds than the opponent.
Dark Forest: The third objective progress is only measured by if the sluice gate goes down or not, not by whoever got closer to getting the door down. The last objective progress prioritizes the following: Killed Kings Family -> Doors broken -> Progress made on Doors
Stoneshill: The last objective progress is only measured by if the king is killed or not, not by whoever did the most damage to the king.
Hillside Pyre: First objective is measured by most progression on pyre made at any time. Second and third objectives measure destroyed trebuchets and ships, followed by previous objective time.
11. Tournament Progression System
- Day one is a 12-team, 3 group round robin cup. The top two teams will advanced to the double-elimination playoffs on day two.
12. Cheating/Unsportsmanlike Conduct
Any individual caught hacking/cheating (this includes ghosting) will have their entire team expelled from the tournament.
Any individual caught map glitching or exploiting will be either penalized or warned based on their actions.
Any team using a player with a alt account or private, unverifiable profile on tournament day will be issued a warning and asked to substitute that player for another on their roster. Failure to comply will result in the player being ejected from the tournament.
NOTE FOR ROSTERS: You will need to link the Steam profiles of everyone on your roster.
