NationCup XX : Group Stage

HomeNews

This year, we had to set up a qualifier tournament due to the important ammount of signups. After these 2 weeks of intence games, two teams have unfortunatly not been able to do the necessary to play the NationsCup Team Mexico and Team Turkey. However, they both showed some very promising matches and we hope to see them again in 11 months for the next edition. You'll soon find a complete recap of the qualifier week that will published by Shoushou in a few days. Congratulations to all teams that played, you managed to play 100 % of the matches. Let's keep the rythm!

Now we can kick-off with the long awaited swiss format group-stage. As you may know, we went through a direct vote in our forums to determine which system we should be using and decided to go for the Swiss System. This means that, instead of having usual groups, we'll have only one group with every team. Each week, you'll be matched with another team that has the same win/loss record. Once you get 3 victories, you're qualified for the playoffs, but if you get 3 losses, you're out.

Here's how week 1 will look like:


We'll announce the matches every week (it's impossible to predict the matches in advance being result based). The matches are seeded for week 1, but they'll be random from weeks 2 to 5.

For week 1, teams have till Thursday 26th, 22:00 CET to inform me by PM or mail (nationscup@urban-zone.org) of their map/gametype choice for their first match. Passed that deadline, the latter will be forced and won't be able to be changed without opponent's approval.

Click on Read more... for additional information on rules, server configurations and the next group-stage rounds.

The rules have been sent to every team captain and can be found on the competition's page. If you need clarifications, just ask. The small changes dues to the swiss format are the followig:

- Every map must have a winner (with overtime in CTF & BM if needed).
- Every match must have a winner (so if each team win a map, you have to play a third one).
- New server configs can be downloaded here. Please inform your server owners!


The rest is classic and the same as the previous NC editions, but we want to be sure everybody is informed properly. Keep in mind that you have only a few days to schedule and play the match, so don't waste time and contact your opponents as soon as possible.

Fixtures for this week's matches can be found there.
