We have finalized the details for the global competition. This post will discuss entry, tournament structure, eligibility, and rewards.
On December 31st at 11:59PM ET we will prevent further algos from entering the ‘season one’ environment, giving Elo scores time to stabilize on the leaderboard. You will still be able to see your own algo’s Elo and match history.
On January 4th at 4:00 PM ET we will take a ‘snapshot’ of the leaderboard, the top ten players at this point will be entered into the global competition finals.
Prizes and Competition Structure.
There are 5 ways to win.
All players who enter get $200 for a total of $2k.
All players who enter get (11 - rank)*$50 for a total of $2.75k. Refer to the table below for a detailed breakdown:
$50 $100 $150 $200 $250 $300 $350 $400 $450 $500
Round Robin Groups
Players will be broken up into two groups:
5 players with odd rankings and 5 players with even rankings.
All players will play against all other players in their group.
Each win awards $200 for a total of $4k
The player with the most wins in their group moves to the grand finale.
In the case of a tie, the player with the higher rank moves on.
If they have the same Elo, the player who won their round robin match.
The grand finale winner will earn an additional $1k
The final $250 is reserved for special bonus prizes and raffles, to be given out during the stream to viewers or players at C1’s discretion.
We will be streaming the games Sunday, January 6. We currently expect to start around 5pm ET and run until around 8pm ET. As always, you can view the stream on our twitch channel.
Eligibility and Conflicts
Conflicts and issues will be resolved at C1’s discretion.
Users will be able to see the leaderboard during the stabilization period. We decided while this may be less exciting it would make for a more transparent process.
