What is MAGNA?
A heartwarming greet to everyone in the community. Today is a very important day for VC-AD and VC: MP itself: out of the effort of our very collaborative staff, in an attempt to bring some cooperative fun into the game through a new, sophisticated, and breaking event. Today, the VCAD Magna Tournament is being presented. This is a new event that will occur once a year, the schedulement is designed for a short span of time, based upon super random, mixed teams led by experienced captains and players chosen through auction, that will try to conquer the trophy fighting on VCAD.
How can you participate, any limit?
The applications for players that are interested in being taken into account for this event will be opened soon. Currently, the organization of the event aims for 56 participants, scheduled and divided thereupon within 8 teams. Those applicants who came up a bit late will be able to apply for the event though they are going to stand on a reserve pool - so show up early!
Once applications are closed, accepted applicants will be categorized under the three following tiers:Pro
: Those players that are considered very skillful based upon factual evidence of their experience, years in the game, development through past events and won competitions.Average
: Those players that maintain a regular skillful demonstration when needed, have a considerable time playing the game, may from time to time have good performances in events and be noticeable in servers.
Each team will have the same number of players from each tier after the bidding is done.
How to be a captain?
Captains are expected to apply early. The main considerations for a Captain to be chosen, are the historical development and the ability of the player, i.e. overall history, experience, management of groups, and leadership. However, considering there are only eight groups, you should not feel down if you are not picked up. Though we encourage you to throw your application here if you feel that you have enough conditions. Captains applications are to be opened at the same time as Players' applications, though Captains are to be dealt with in the first place in order for them to decide their team name and have everything ready before the auction. Captains are expected to maintain a full activity and responsibility for their team throughout the whole tournament - so this is a 'no' if you are not going to be active and considering to apply. Vice Captains will also be taken and announced before the matches.
In which teams we will play and what is the Auction?
A discord bot will be set up on Magna’s auction channel where the auction will take place. A specific day will be designated where captains have to show up so they can place their bid on players and teams can be sorted. 200$ will be given to every captain. The money has to be used wisely and bid set on their favorite players or best options. After the bid is complete, teams will be determined and players will have to play in their respective teams. If some player refuses to play in the assigned team, a ban from the event will be issued (considering that we have explained the rules beforehand!).
What is the Event Format?
The teams are going to be divided into two groups and two teams classified per each. The four classified teams will dispute direct matches at the 'Winner Bracket'. The winner of each match will face each other and the finalist will be gathered out of this battle. On the other hand, the teams that were third and fourth in their groups will face battles on the 'Loser Bracket'. The difference is that they will have to pass through an extra battle against the losers of the 'Winner Bracket'. When every match is concluded, the final will be between the team winner of the 'Winner Bracket' and the 'Loser Bracket'. Further details about the event format will be disclosed soon.
