ERA's: All Era's EXCEPT ADVANCED will be included, in a sequential order, I.E. Early, Mid, and Late.

TERRAIN: Terrain will be selected randomly with each round and announced before the match.

XenoCorp HardCORE Tourney

General Rules:

HARDCORE rules encourage and reward individual Captain skills. The HardCORE tourney consists of three "phases":

Phase I - 1V1 Player Vs Player match

Phase II - 2V2 Team match

Phase III - 3V3 Team match

XenoCorp HardCORE Tournament events also run the "Gauntlet MVP" - the top scoring player from the entire tournament will receive an additional prize for their accomplishment and be given the "XC HardCORE Gauntlet MVP" award.

Shiplist for the 1st HardCORE tourney will be  - OP Plus 4.0 - XenoCorp HardCORE Edition!

Any player can compete in each phase, the only restriction is that if you choose to participate in a team phase, then you must declare your team when you sign up for the match. So, player A can sign up for Phase I, but cannot register for Phase II until he/she has a partner. This is to encourage players who have played together ... well, play together :)

It is the TEAM's responsibility to ensure availability for the scheduled matches. It does not matter if you are available when a Phase II or III match occurs, if your partner is not then you will forfeit the match and your opponents will progress up the ladder. On the day of the tourney, players will confirm their participation - only after confirmation will the actual matches be selected from random.

Phase II and Phase III matches ALL sides in the team must fly the SAME RACE.

EXAMPLE :

   Acceptable : Team A in a Phase II match picks Federation. All members of the 2 person team fly Federation.

   Unacceptable : One Captain in Team A in a Phase II match picks Gorn, the other picks Romulan.


Each player / team has a maximum of 5 minutes to start the match with the indicated BPV and Era. XenoCorp Tourney Masters will start the 5 minute countdown once the terms for the match have been announced. If you do not launch within time, BOTH parties will forfit the match.

Speed will be ran at speed 8, UNLESS both players agree on another speed. If another speed is chosen and agreed upon, that CANNOT be a reason for a replay of the match. Match speed will default to speed 8 if both parties cannot agree on a different speed, and in no way can a game speed dispute be ground for "extension" of the 5 minute rule for Phase I. If you don't want to play speed 8 but your opponent(s) want to fly speed 8, then it's speed 8 and you must launch within 5 minutes or your team forfeits the match.

Individual Gauntlet scores for the match results will be as follows:

Destruction of oppposing player(s) and ship(s) : 5 points per player
Opposing player(s) disengage: 3 points per player
Opposing player(s) forfeits: 1 point per player

Point accumulation is cumulative over the entire tourney event. Point totals will be compared at the end of the event and the indiviual(s) with the most points will be declared the "XC HardCORE Gauntlet MVP" award.

EXAMPLE :    Player 1 & 2 are on Team 1
      Player 3 & 4 are on Team 2

      During the match, Player 1 blows up Player 3, then player 4 gets revenge and blows up Player 1 and forces player 2 to
disengage from the fight, so scoring for the Gauntlet MVP would be as follows:

   Player 1 : 5 points
   Player 2 : 0 Points
   Player 3 : 0 Points
   Player 4 : 8 points


The Gauntlet scores independently from the results of each Phase, and carry over to the next Phase. The Captain with the most points at the end of Phase III is declared the "Gauntlet MVP".

Once you have signed up, nothing else is required on your end. You MUST provide a valid email address during registration, so ensure your registration information is correct as you will be added to the D.Net Tournament forums.

Matches will be run by designated Tourney Masters. If you have an issue with a match, you need to IM one of the XenoCorp Tourney Masters who will be in the SFC-Direct Chat Lobby and on Dynaverse.Net teamspeak (teamspeak.dynaverse.net - PW: sfcrulz).

BPV will be declared on the NIGHT of the match.

Phase Specific Rules:

Phase I ( 1V1) Rules:

Any player wishing to participate must sign up by the indicated date.

BPV will be randomly chosen from the proper era.

NOTE: XenoCorp Tourney Masters will announce the BPV and Era before the match commences. There will be NO advanced notification of the BPV / Terrain for the 1v1 ladder.
