Now With UAC! Check Post #3!
All of the information you need to register, participate and have fun in this tournament is located within this topic. If you need assistance in any way do not hesitate to contact CGO Staff for help. Our contact info is located at the end of this topic.

CGO's Twelfth May Tournament

Hello AVA,

Two tournaments down, and another within 30 days. Previously such consistency was unheard of in any league other than CGO. In this past year we've seen several organizations step up to the plate, and take a big bite into the competitive space of AVA. The most notable organizations have all shown that this consistency is possible within AVA, replicating much of the success (and more), of the earlier CGO events in 2011. We are proud to be conducting events with such consistency, alongside other top organizations, who share the same determination to provide not just consistent events, but quality events. Enjoy this tournament, and all future AVA events!

Match Format:
Format: 11 Rounds/6 wins
Halves: 2 Per Map
Maps: 1
Map Win Condition: The team with the highest rounds won from the two halves of the map wins the map. There are no match ties, only tiebreakers. Read below for information on tiebreakers.
Match Win Condition: First team to 1 map win.


Tiebreakers will be handled according to:

1. If a map results in a tie, the map is to be replayed with these settings:
- 2 Halves
- 7 Rounds/4 Wins
- All other settings as a regular match
2. If another tie is induced, repeat step 1 with 5Rounds/3Wins & onwards.
3. There are no map ties. All maps must be won by a team in order to gain a map point.
4. The team who wins the most rounds out of the tiebreaker series, wins the map. The rounds won from the normal two halves do not count towards the tiebreaker series or vise-versa. The tiebreaker game's scores/rounds are separated and independent of the regular match scores/rounds.

Map Selection:

To decide the maps that teams are playing, follow these guidelines:

Map Exclusion Process:

1. Team A (Higher Seeded Team) chooses one of the 7 available maps to exclude.
2. Team B (Lower Seeded Team) chooses one of the remaining 6 maps to exclude.
3. Team A (Higher Seeded Team) chooses one of the 5 remaining maps to exclude.
4. Team B (Lower Seeded Team) chooses one of the 4 remaining maps to exclude.
5. Team A (Higher Seeded Team) chooses one of the 3 remaining maps to exclude.
6. Team B (Lower Seeded Team) chooses one of the 2 remaining maps to exclude.
7. The last remaining map is the map to be played for the specific match.
8. You must follow this order of steps in the map exclusion process for every round of the tournament. Do not mass exclude 2 maps. One map at a time.
9. The Winners Bracket Finals, Losers Bracket Semi-Finals, Losers Bracket Finals, and Grand Finals will be a 'Best of 3' series. They will only do Step's 1 and 2 in their match exclusion process.
10. Higher Seeded Team gets first ban choice, while the Lower Seeded Team gets side choice. Reverse for the second map. Consult admin for the third map.
Highest Seed is the team with the lower seed number. 1 is higher than 2. 20 is higher than 30.

How to Report Someone Using an Illegal Item

1. If you spot a player using an illegal item you must follow these steps.
2. In the public chat, you must state that the item in question is illegal and that the player needs to leave the game before they kill another person (do not state this during a rush, planting/defusing, or a time where the specific individual will not be able to receive or act on the message clearly).
3. Screenshot this statement in the public chat.
4. If the player leaves within a round, and they have removed the violating items, they may join back in the game.
5. If the player does not leave, does not listen to you, or gets 1 or more kills/rounds after you have clearly informed them of their violation, screenshot the kills while holding tab. And also write something else in the public chat notifying them of their disqualification from the tournament.
6. Upload both (or all) screenshots to an image hosting service and send them to InkofDeath on xFire.
7. It is the team's responsibility to ensure they know the correct weapon restrictions
8. It is the team reporting the illegal item responsibility to declare an illegal item. Not the violating team.
9. Be patient and wait for our response.
10. If a team has 3 or more violations in a game, on an individual or split between multiple players, follow the above steps and the team will be disqualified.
11. CGO reserves the ability to act as an additional authority to also dispute any illegal item violations. This decision must be made by InkofDeath directly to the team. If not, continue to play the match as normal.

Subs, Subbing & Player Conflicts

The following is a list of guidelines to follow in any event that relates to subs or subbing players in:

1. You may sub in a player from your registered roster of players at any time during the match.

2. You need at least 3 players present in order to start a match. You may play with 3 players until the Semi-Finals of either the LOSERS BRACKET or WINNERS BRACKET. At this point, you need at least 4 players present.
3. If in the first round of a half a player disconnects or does not load in quickly enough as they usually would, the team may call a 'dead round' (typing 'Dead round' in global chat). From this point you will exit the game and restart the match on the same map and settings already determined.
3.a. You may only call a dead round twice per half.
3.b. You must call the dead round in the first 10 seconds of a round starting (you may need an SS as insurance).
3.c. If you call the dead round after 10 seconds, the other team has no obligation to leave the game. If you leave, it will count as a loss on the half you are playing. Either team must provide screenshots to verify their accounts and accusations of any occurrence.
4. You may only use the players and accounts listed in your registered roster located here <link will be provided – check back on April 12th>.
5. Teams have a grace period of 10 minutes after the designated match start time. After 10 minutes the opposing team may start the game or dispute the problematic team for disqualification.
