This event will be run in stages. The Knockout Stage will be held Saturday, April 24th, 2021, matches starting 12 noon EST. The matches for this stage are single elimination, and we plan to run this stage with Best of 3 (Bo3) matches; If more than 32 teams register, this stage might switch to a Single Game (Bo1) format.
The Top 4 will face off on Sunday, April 25th. This stage is Best of 3 (Bo3) and this stage will be live streamed. Top 4 will be played sequentially instead of concurrently, so all 3 matches (semifinals x2, and the Grand Finals) can be live streamed on one of our Official Twitch channels! (These matches will NOT be played at the same time/concurrently, like in the other rounds.)
Please note: Under normal circumstances, ROSTER CHANGES ARE NOT ALLOWED once the event begins. It is important you register your substitute/back-up players on your roster prior to the first round of the event, so you will be able to field a full team every game over the duration of the event (even if one of your main players has to leave, or if your games are held over the span of more than one day.)
Check-in for the event will open FOUR(4) HOURS before the event begins, here on Toornament.com (8:00am EST)
Check-in will close ONE (1) hour before, at 11:00 am EST. You MUST check in to participate.
ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT, AFTER YOU CHECK IN ON TOORNAMENT.COM, PLEASE JOIN THE #SMITE-CHAT CHANNEL OF THE DISCORD AT LEAST 30 MINUTES BEFORE THE EVENT STARTS, OR YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE!
It is important to stay in that channel for the duration of the event, to make sure you do not miss any important instructions from the tournament staff. You can find the discord at: https://discord.gg/GUhyZxFH8Q
Age: To be eligible to participate, a player must be at least 13 years old (or such other age, of greater, as may be required in such player’s country of residence). Players between the ages of 13 and 17 (or such other age, if greater, as may be required in such player’s country of residence) must have written permission from a parent or legal guardian (a form will be provided which must be returned in order to complete processing your registration). IF YOU ARE UNDER 18, THE FORM CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://discord.com/channels/708790719015551017/761211030927441940/786226171864023050
, PLEASE CONTACT TOURNAMENT STAFF PRIOR TO THE EVENT TO HAVE THE REQUIRED PAPERWORK COMPLETED OR YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE.
TARDINESS: If your opponent appears to be non-responsive after 3 minutes, ping them AND the tournament staff via a post in the discord channel, alerting everyone that the opponent appears tardy. If your opponent does not respond/report in for the match within 5 minutes from the time of the first public ping, ping them AND the tournament staff again, and your opponent will be issued a game loss. (If a Best of 3 Series, then repeat this process, and they still do not respond within another 5 minutes they will then be issued a match loss.)
IF THERE ARE GENERAL CONNECTION PROBLEMS/INTERRUPTIONS OF THE GAME'S SERVERS, THE EVENT MAY BE SUSPENDED AND RESCHEDULED TO COMPLETE ON A FUTURE DATE.
Cheating of any kind will result in disqualification without prizes from the event, and being banned from all future events. If you are in a match where you believe your opponent cheated, please send any evidence you may have to the tournament staff. In addition to Hacking, "CHEATING" ALSO INCLUDES USING ANY BUG OR UNINTENDED EXPLOIT THAT EXISTS IN THE GAME, intentionally or unintentionally. If this somehow happens to you unintentionally, you should immediately alert your opponent and tournament staff - if you don't, you will be deemed to have been Cheating, and you will be disqualified without prizing and banned from all future events.
OPTIONAL: We realize not every player can do this, so this is not mandatory: If you have the capability, live streaming and/or recording video of all of your matches is a good idea, to help eliminate any possibility of any dispute arising as to performance in a given match.
DESYNCS, CRASHES, or CONNECTION ISSUES: Should a player crash/desync/disconnect/soft lock at the point of the game at which it is not CLEAR that the match is "solved" (as in already decided at the point of the crash), the team with the player issue may have a 5-minute grace pause that will not take up any time away from their pause time to allow time for the player to return to the match. If the said player does not return the match will continue without the said player, however, the issue player will be allowed to return at any given moment. Once a disconnect happens teams MUST REPORT immediately at the general tournament discord by both match participants.
Sportsmanlike conduct is expected. You are NOT allowed to be disruptive or grief your opponent in Real Life, such as in any Discord or Twitch chat (or any other actions that could be considered unsportsmanlike conduct except for actions intended to be allowed within the game itself as part of normal game-play.) If you do, your actions may result in a game loss, match loss, or disqualification from the event without prizes, solely at the discretion of the Tournament Staff.
ALL DECISIONS BY THE TOURNAMENT ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS EVENT ARE FINAL.
