The first ever Australian Dota 2 Banjoball Tournament is here, and is open for everyone to play! Sign-up below with your premade team and show everyone your true potential! Don’t have a team? No problem! You can also sign-up as an individual player and get placed on a team based on the main heroes you play in Banjoball. The tournament will be run on the Banjoball League Discord Server in the text channel #tournaments, please ensure all players have a Discord account and have joined the server before the tournament starts. Link to the server is here: discord.gg/0ymW5P1TI3uzWgrE If you do not know how to join the server, watch the first half of this video: Dates & Times All games will be played on the 3rd of July and will start at 12:00 p.m AEST. Matches are scheduled to be played in 30 minute blocks. If two teams are ready to play early they are welcome to do so. Times may change and breaks will be added for teams during the day, make sure your captain is actively checking the captains chat. Format The tournament will follow a Double Elimination Bracket with a Best of 3 Grand Final. All other games are Best of 1. The bracket will be released once enough teams have signed up. General Rules Players from any region are able to participate, however all games must be played on the Australian server. If neither team is from Australia, please get your captain to notify an admin who will tell you what to do next. This tournament is open to players of all skill levels. Teams must be present on the Banjoball League Discord Server: discord.gg/0ymW5P1TI3uzWgrE Teams must not be more than 15 minutes late for their game, if they are more than 15 minutes late they are disqualified. Team captains will be invited to a separate Discord chat where they will need to provide results of the games, including a screenshot of the full end-game scoreboard. There is currently no prize for winners, this tournament is more designed for fun and to ensure high quality Banjoball games, however that may change. In-game Rules There is a one hero per team rule for this tournament, no team may pick more than one of the same hero. If a team picks two of the same heroes by mistake, the game must be remade. No Slark! Slark is deemed too overpowered at the moment and is banned for this tournament. If slark is accidently picked or the rule is forgotten the game must be remade. If the game crashes or a player disconnects and cannot reconnect, the game must be remade at the same scoreline with the same heroes and played to 10 goals. For example, if the game crashed at 5-2, the first team would need to score 5 goals to win, and the second would need 8. Each team has 5 minutes of total pause time during matches, to cater for disconnects. If more than 5 minutes has been used, the opposite team are allowed to announce they are un-pausing the game and the team with the missing player has to micro the missing player.
