Forts Tournament XXI

G’day Forts fans!

What better way to start off the new year than to crown a new 1v1 champion? We’re extending an invitation to all 2021 Ranked medalists to compete for a chance to be the first winner of 2022. Anyone with a top 3 finish during the 2021 seasons (9-14, Leaderboards) will be granted automatic entry into Tournament XXI. If you did not earn a medal in 2021 fear not! A qualifying event will be held on January 8th at 3PM EST and hosted by Bobereto. Tournament XXI will be hosted by Project Incursus.

How will qualifying work?

Spaces in Tournament XXI will first be reserved for any 2021 Ranked medalists who wish to participate. Additional participants may gain entry by signing up and competing in the qualifying tournament.

How do you earn entry into Tournament XXI from the qualifying tournament?

The remaining spots will be awarded to the top finishers of the qualifying tournament with tiebreakers held as needed.

How large will the qualifying tournament be? How many tournament XXI spaces will be available?

This will depend on the total number of entries and the number of 2021 medalists who choose to enter. We have a minimum number in mind but if enough people register we may expand that at our discretion. If it becomes necessary to cap the qualifying event we may also offer some additional direct invitations on the basis of past tournament performances.

What format will the tournaments have?

This will also depend upon the number of participants. We may use a mix of single elimination and double elimination rounds depending on the final size of the tournament in order to fit time constraints. We may also give first round byes to top seeds if there is an asymmetrical bracket, such as 12 total players.

Please note however. As before, both tournaments will also feature commander bans. At the start of each match both competitors will be asked to select the commander they would like to ban. The two banned commanders may not be chosen by either player for that game on penalty of immediate disqualification.

Seeds? How will players be seeded?

Players in the qualifying tournament will be seeded first on the basis of their Season 14 ranked position. If they were unranked, consideration will also be given to placements in prior seasons, then past tournament performance, and finally hours in-game.

Tournament XXI seedings will first be assigned to any participating 2021 medalists on the basis of their season 14 position, and for the qualifying players on the basis of their results from the qualifying tournament.
