    Post RULES - 1st DoC World Championship - DreamHack 2012

    Dear Champions,

    Please find below the list of rules for the 1st Duel of Champions World Championship with semi-finals and finals at the DreamHack convention in Sweden.
    Introductory post soon linked here.
    • Every participant is asked to post his name and country of origin on a specific thread in order to apply for the tournament.
    • As the game is not officially launched in this region, the tournament is not open to players from North America.
    • Once the deadline is over, the team will choose 16, 32, 64 or 128 participants from the list of enlisted participants.
    • According to the number of participants, the list of dates for the different qualifying duels of the tournament is set (for example if there are 128 participants, 5 dates are selected for the qualifying duels).
    • Participants will then be sent the account name and password to the new accounts provided for the tournament. These accounts include 3 booster packs and players are not allowed to compete, do the campaign or buy any extra gold or packs on this account: any player who does this will be disqualified instantly.
    • Participants are then paired up for the first set of duels: they have to contact each other and find a suitable time for their duel together, within the timeframe set previously by the CM. If a suitable timeframe cannot be found, they need to contact the CM.
    • Every participant must then add his opponent as an in-game friend and take part in a friendly duel against him at the appropriate time.

      • The winner must then provide a screenshot of the victory on the appropriate forum thread to get to the next stage.
      • In case one player fails to turn up at the right time, the other player must take a screenshot of the game open at the appropriate time, send it to the CM and he will be the victor.
      • If an error occurs (Bloomberg or disconnect etc.), the game should be repeated as long as the player who encountered the error provides a screenshot with it in the game. If a player does not provide the screenshot, the game is classified as a defeat for the player who had the error.
      • When they enter the tournament, players are committing to being present at the appointed dates.
      • Players are also committing to sending in the result screen as proof of victory.
    • The 4 finalists will then be contacted in preparation of their trip to Sweden. During this time, separate on-line semi-finals and finals will take place for the 4 runners-up or the finalists if they cannot go to Sweden (in this case, the runners-up will be offered the trip).
    • Only players 18 years old or more will get the chance to go the Sweden for legal reasons. Anyone under 18 to reach the semi-finals and finals will automatically compete in the on-line semi-finals and finals.
    • Only players from the European Union will be able to participate in the semi-finals and finals at Sweden.
      If you do not live in the European Union, you can only take part in the on-line category.
    .

    A chat service on an external website will be provided during the tournament, enabling players to communicate before, during and after matches.

    The preliminary games (rounds 1, 2 and 3) are played in one duel, rounds 4, 5 and 6 will be a best of 3 and the finals a best of 5.

    We strongly suggest that, during the tournament period, you check your personal in-box and the relevant forum posts as often as possible!

    Thank you,
    Aza404 and the DoC Team

    Quick update: Applications for the tournament will end tomorrow night at midnight (UK time), Wednesday 14th of November.

    The first 128 people enlisted will then be sent their account details for the accounts you are to use during the tournament.
    We hope to have the planning for the first duels up Thursday night at the latest and you will have until Friday 16th at midnight to find your opponent, duel with him in the practice mode and post a screenshot of your victory on the appropriate forum thread.

    Please be sure to check the forum posts related to the championship AND your private forum messages during the whole event !!!

    Thank you and good luck!

    Round 4, 5 and 6 will be in BO3. The finals will be in BO5.

    BO3: 3 duels are played, the player who wins 2 duels is declared winner.
    BO5: Same as BO3 but in 5 duels. Here the winning player has to get 3 won duels.
