Starbow Beta Invitational Tournament
Starbow Beta Invitational Tournament is the first invitational Starbow Beta tournament. Starbow is a mod for StarCraft II with basic principles from StarCraft: BroodWar, but with added units and mechanics from StarCraft II. Eight professional players have been invited to play in this one-day event which will take place at Saturday, March 1st, 2014.
This tournament consists of two parts:
- Two "GSL - style" groups with 4 players on each group. The two players from each groups advance to the next round. Each match in group play will be best of 3 games.
- A four player single elimination bracket. The semi-finals will be best of 5 games and the final will be best of 7 games
The tournament will begin at 2 pm CET (central European time) on March 1st 2014 and is estimated to end at about 11 pm CET.
- Group A will be casted by Xiphias and Decemberscalm on https://www.twitch.tv/SC2_Starbow.
- Group B will be casted by Rifkin on https://www.twitch.tv/basetradetv
- The playoffs will be casted by Xiphias and Decemberscalm who are joined by TotalBiscuit in the finals.
$1,200 are spread among the players as seen below:
All games will primary played on the NA server. If both players benefit from playing on another server they may chose to do so after informing the admin and casters. If there are lag issues the players may leave the game and use the "resume play" function from the replay on another server. If a player is not in the game lobby after 15 min of its creation he may be dropped from the tournament. Each match will be casted so no more than two games will be played at the same time and that will only be during group play.
There will be one map assigned the first round of each match. The loser of the first game picks the second map and so on.
In-game chat is allowed but no excess / distracting chat or bad mannered chat. Each participant should be ready and alert from 14:00 CET to he is eliminated or to the end of the tournament. Map-hacking, stream viewing and other forms of cheating will not be tolerated and will lead to the player being dropped from the tournament and may exclude him from other Starbow tournaments as well.
