Tournament Information:

Registration closes Tuesday, July 28th, 2020.

The tournament will take place in two stages: a Swiss stage and an elimination stage.

The Swiss stage will start Friday, July 31st, 2020.

The elimination stage will start Friday, September 4th, 2020.

Participants must be on the tournament Discord server and be able to be pinged. This is necessary so that all participants can reach each other and be reached by the admins.

All official communication and announcements during the tournament will be made on the Discord server.

Feel free to join the main LADX community server, but please keep all tournament-related scheduling/questions/discussion to the tournament Discord only.

Tournament moderators are: Spicefather, PhantomMat.

Participants are responsible for contacting their opponents and scheduling their own races. 

All races must be submitted to the schedule at least 48 hours prior to the match time. This is to allow adequate to time to schedule a restream and commentators

Players must complete 1 match per week (no more, no less), so as to keep with the tournament schedule.

1st Phase  - Swiss Format:

The format for the first stage of the tournament will be Swiss consisting of 4 rounds.

One week will be allotted per round.

The top 8 players will advance to the elimination stage.

In the event that there are more tied players than remaining 2nd stage spots, the tied players will all compete in a single race to determine who will advance.

Initial seeding for this stage will be done randomly. 

For all rounds following the first, participants will be matched randomly against others of the same (or similar) win-loss ratio. Players will face unique opponents each round, if possible.

2nd Phase - Single Elimination Format:

Seeding for this stage will be determined first by players' win-loss ratios following the Swiss stage, and then second by the average of players' race times from the Swiss stage, as necessary.

The elimination stage will be single race matches, with the exception of the grand finals which may require an additional match due to the nature of the format.

In the unlikely event of a tied race (according to SRL), an additional race between the players will be used to break the tie.

Race Details:

You must stream your race on Twitch and enable VOD saving. 

All races will be done on the SRL IRC server in accordance with the SRL rules.  The times recorded on SRL will be considered the racers' official race times.

Players must be registered on SRL to participate in their tournament matches. Failure to be registered on SRL prior to a race will result in forfeiture of the race. Please visit www.speedrunslive.com/faq ("How do I participate in SRL races?") for instructions on how to register.

SRL racing can be done with any IRC client; however, we recommend the use of LiveSplit's built-in SRL client for the most accurate timing of races.

If any player misses a scheduled match time, they will forfeit the match. Only schedule matches that you are sure that you can make. Matches can be rescheduled/cancelled no later than 24 hours prior to the scheduled time if the party at fault wishes to avoid forfeiting the match.

Stream Guidelines:

All "stream alerts" (such as follows, donations, subs, etc.) must be disabled during your races, so that your game feed won't be interrupted on the restream.

Racers cannot use their microphones during their races. This is necessary to avoid accidental (and possibly inappropriate) interruptions. Just leave it all to the commentators! :)

Matches will be restreamed to https://www.twitch.tv/zeldaspeedruns or one of the other ZSR channels, depending on availability of restreamers.

This tournament follows the official rules of the "100% (No WW/OoB)" category.
