We will be hosting another live tournament as part of the Retro World Expo in Hartford, CT on October 14th, 2017! Registration / Cost: The tournament is free as part of your admission to the Retro World Expo! Date/Time: 1:00 pm, October 14th, 2017. Prize: TBD, something fun. Livestream: https://www.twitch.tv/kingraph Format: 32 player cap (registration continues after 32, but can't guarantee a spot) Round Robin play will be 8 groups of 4 players in a 3 game round robin. Groups will be random, but we will try to accommodate requests for friends/groups to be in separate groups as best we can. Top 2 players from each group move on to a 16 player elimination bracket. 16 players are eliminated after Round Robin play. Players will be seeded by win total, followed by goal differential, followed by total goals for. This is the same tiebreaker rules. 16 team bracket will be single elimination format, best of 3 series for all rounds (16, quarters, semis, final). Game Settings: 5 Minute Periods No Offsides, Penalties On No Line Changes Manual Goalie Control Selecting Teams: A coin flip will take place between the 2 players. The loser of the coin flip will choose 2 different teams. The winner of the coin flip will choose to play as 1 of the 2 teams chosen and play as the Home team. If the same 2 players meet again later in the tournament, no coin flip will occur. The players will simply reverse the coin flip results from the first meeting, and so on for further matchups. You can't pick the same teams, so no CHI-CHI or DET-DET matchups All Star teams are ineligible Preset matchups cards will be available for everyone to see and use if wanted. This is for those who are not familiar with every team, or players who just want to reduce the stress of selecting two teams! The cards will have matchups that have two teams that are reasonably similar in strength. @chaos and I will be running the tournament, and will be head referees if needed. We expect the 32 spots to fill up easily (the crowd will be up to 50% larger than Long Island), so it's unlikely either of us will be actually be playing. LET ME KNOW IN THIS THREAD IF ANY VETS ARE PLANNING TO GO!
