We have finalized the details for the Season 3 Global competition.
This post will discuss entry, tournament structure, eligibility, and rewards.
For anyone who was around for the Season 1 or 2 Global competition, this one is structured similarly.
The primary difference this season is prizing based on performance in ranked competitions.
On Sunday, September 1st at 11:59PM ET we will prevent further algos from entering or leaving the ‘Season Three’ environment, giving Rating time to stabilize on the leaderboard. You will still be able to see the leaderboard and your algo’s Rating and match history. Note that because of the glicko system, it should take a very short amount of time for Rating to stabilize.
On September 3rd 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. Season three algos will permanently stop playing ranked games at this point, and you will be able to remove them to make room for new Season 4 Algos.
Prizes and Competition Structure.
There are 5 ways to win.
All players who enter get $90 for a total of $900.
All players who enter get (11 - rank)*$20 for a total of $1,100. Refer to the list below for a detailed breakdown:
$20 $40 $60 $80 $100 $120 $140 $160 $180 $200
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 $100 for a total of $2k
The player with the most wins in their group moves to the grand finale.
In the case of a tie, the player who won the most matches among the tied players moves on.
In the rare case this does not produce a single winner, rating will be used as a tiebreaker.
The grand finale winner will earn an additional $500
Ranked Competition Performance
The remaining $500 will be distributed among players who reached gold tier in ranked competitions, based on the current final standings.
We will be streaming the games Tuesday, September 9th, at 6pm ET and run until around 8pm ET. As always, you can view the stream on our twitch channel .
