-The tournament organizer will not participate in the tournament, but will host for others to help practice for the upcoming event throughout the week.
-If final player count is below 24 players, the event will be a Best of 3, Double Elimination contest. Otherwise, it will be a Best of 3, Single Elimination contest.
-Use autopunch as a host when forwarding ports is impossible. Do not forget to mention it was used to avoid confusion - both players need it to connect. Link here - https://github.com/delthas/autopunch
-Streamer is autistic, please put up with him.
-Take it easy.TOURNAMENT PROTOCOL
From previous tournaments, there are some things that we've learned regarding the setup. Therefore, all participants are asked to get a couple things ready for when something inevitably goes wrong.
1. OTHER PLAYER DIDN'T SAVE REPLAYS
As spectating is unreliable at best, it's best to automatically save replays (enable in options). After the match, one of the players must upload the replays (found in Hisoutensoku\replay) and then give strmfriend the link. This will let everyone see your matches on strm.
2. TWO PLAYERS ARE MATCHED UP, BOTH CAN'T HOST
If you can't host, get autopunch (https://github.com/delthas/autopunch
); both players need this. It will likely not function on a work network or an old router, so keep that in mind. ZeroTier is also an option but can be very laggy; both players need it. If the participants fail to have a game until the winner is needed for the next round, it will be decided by concede or coinflip.
3. TOURNEY STARTED, SIGNED UP PLAYERS STILL MISSING
If a player is absent during the first round, his match is skipped until the rest of the matches within the round are done. If he's not there by then, he's counted as a bye and his opponent advances in the bracket. Same applies to later rounds. Don't hold everyone up.
