What is "Better Seeding"?

Battles should be created by one of the team captains. If no team captain creat a battle, the captain with the better seeding has to create the battle. It is allowed, to play the matches before the official match time. If a team want to play the match at the oficial match time, you have to wait. Both teams can use the time to prepare themself. If a team is not complete 10 minutes after the oficial matchtime, the team will get one ESL penalty point for each missing player. If a team is not complete 20 minutes after official match time, the battle starts without the missing players!

If the battle starts with a delay of more than 10 minutes, then one of the teams should give a notice in the form of a comment on the matchsheet before the match starts.

3.6.4. Tank and position picking

The team with the better (1 is the best) seeding picks the starting position and also picks their first 2 tanks. After that the other team picks their 2 tanks. This will be done until both teams picked their 7 tanks. Breaking this rule will be punished with penalty points and can cause a default loss.

IMPORTANT:

The seeding in the first round is based on the Overall Ranking. Seeding can change as you progress through rounds based on the teams you win against, here is an example:

  • 1. You're seeded as 3.
  • 2. You win against the team that is seeded as 2.
  • 2. You are now seeded as 2.
  • 3. You win against the team that is seeded as 1.
  • 4. You're now seeded as 1.

In the semifinals and Finals the positions will be picked:

  • 1. Map: Team with the better seeding picks starting position and their first 2 tanks
  • 2. Map: Team with the lower seeding picks starting position and their first 2 tanks
  • 3. Map: Team with the better seeding picks starting position and their first 2 tanks

Each pick may take up to 1 minute.

The tank-picking should only be done in the game chat to avoid any discrepancies. Once a tank is picked it cannot be changed for the map any more. As soon as the tankpicking is finished, both teams should confirm that they are ready in the game chat.

3.6.5. Map Change

Between two maps both teams have 5 minutes time to prepare. The tank picking does not count as preparation time. After the 5 minutes, you then start picking your tanks. If one team isn't ready for the after 5 minutes the tankpicking starts without the missing player. The player is not allowed to join the fight anymore and the team will be punished with 1 penaltypoint for each missing player. Please take screenshots to prove when the last map was finished and when the 5 minutes passed.

3.6.6. Restart

If a player of the team have any problems like disconnect or other, you are allowed to restart your match 1 time per team. You can do this only in the first 30 sec (countdown).
