Eagle’s Rest Tournament Format Rules & Guidelines

Recruitment begins

[Transmission start]

Destination: Uchore, while a valuable mission, was a diversionary tactic by the Wizard Aquila. While all eyes were turned to the edge of the universe, he executed a plan to stealth land his ships on Von (new human home planet) and the seven Prime colonies. It has now been revealed all defense personnel have been replaced by clones under his control. The human colonies are now effectively Aquila’s, with all ships and military lost to him.

Only the off-world ships remain free from his clutches. An alliance of the Free Fliers has formed, hatching a plan to take out Aquila’s dark-matter fiber network which has become ubiquitous throughout the sector. It is hoped that by cutting this off at the source that the clones will be disabled and his operation thrown into disarray.

Aquila’s adopted home planet, Eagle’s Rest, in a remote star system (a small former mining colony), is the target of this operation. The Free Fliers need to find the ultimate pilot capable of evading the planet’s defense perimeter and destroying the heart of his comms base.

The ranked leaderboard as well as the players Elo will be reset on each Free Fliers Cup start date:

Free Fliers Cup #1: 16–09–2022 at 12PM CET
Free Fliers Cup #2: 30–09–2022 at 12PM CET

Players can play an unlimited amount of ranked battles during that time. At the end of each Regular play phase, the top 16 players in the leaderboard of the ranked play mode will qualify for the Playoff bracket.

In case of a tie in the leaderboard, rankings will be determined by the win rate ratio of each player during the mission, then by the results of head-to-head confrontations and finally the win ratio of tied players versus the other Top 16 participants.

Playoff bracket play will consist of a single elimination bracket with 16 players played over two days in a best-of-three format at the following dates:

Free Fliers Cup #1: 26–09–2022 & 27–09–2022

Free Fliers Cup #3: 31–10–2022 & 01–11–2022

Player’s seeding will be determined by their rank in the leaderboard. When a match begins the player with the highest seed will decide if he wants to act first or second in the first game. After that, the loser of the previous game gets to choose if he wants to act first or second in the following game.

After each Free Fliers Cup, Players will be awarded points based on their ranking in the Playoff:

  • Top 1: 20 points
  • Top 2: 15 points
  • Top 3: 10 points
  • Top 4: 8 points
  • Top 5–8: 6 points
  • Top 9–16: 2 points
  • Top 17–50: 1 point

After the 3 Free Fliers Cups, the Top 16 players with the most cumulated points will qualify for the Freedom Strike. In case of a tie in the amount of points, rankings will be determined by the following rules (based on Free Fliers Cups Playoffs matches), ranked by priority order:

  • Number of Playoffs played
  • Total number of wins
  • Net Score (total number of wins — total number of loses)
  • Head-to-head
  • Sum of total wins of their opponents
  • Sum of Net score of their opponents
