2013 Sumobar Major

Post by Concord »

The 2013 Sumobar Major will be played Sunday 21 July.

At 17:00 GMT on 14 July, the Top 24 ranked players will receive automatic bids for the Major. They have until Friday to confirm their attendance.

Meanwhile players ranked 25-64 can reserve a spot in the qualifying tournament on Saturday 20 July. The qualifying tournament will be seeded by ladder rank, and the eight finalists will get play-in bids in the Major the next day. Top 24 players who did not confirm their attendance may also compete in the qualifying tournament.

Whenever the cfg exists, the server will update itself. I added one though. Pennsylvania, USA (Eastern US)

Is this the way sumo tournaments are going to be done now? You have to be a certain ranking in your system to play? Or is this a one/few time thing?

I think this is more of an incentive than anything. If I understand it correctly, it's a sumo tournament directly linked to the tour rankings. I'd imagine other sumo tournaments could be held independently of the ranking (As long as it's not hosted by Concord). Of course with Cody's recent resignation, I don't see a lot of sumo tourneys in the near future.

there'll probably be 4 or 5 tour tournaments like this a year. sumo bar, war sumo, 1v1, classic 1x4. At least one will be open to all, with no minimum rating.
Of course other people are free to host whatever tournaments they want.

Yea, thought so.

Welp, time to artificially inflate my score by selectively challenging not-so-good players.
