The AEL Australian Amateur Cup

Teams: 30
Groups: 17th Jan - 30th Jan
Finals: 31st Jan - 1st Feb 2015
Mode: Captain's Mode
Tournament Format: Group Stage, 1st/2nd through to Double Elimination, Winner Bracket Bo3 and Loser Bracket Bo1.
Prize: Pride

General Rules:
AEL reserve the right to change, modify or amend rules as deemed appropriate by AEL admins in order to maintain the professionalism and sportsmanship of the event. Unsportsmanlike conduct, including: racist or abusive behaviour as well as efforts to circumvent or abuse any policy set by the AEL will not be tolerated and is subject to punishments deemed appropriate by the AEL admin team.

SMURFING is unacceptable and will not be tolerated throughout this tournament. The tournament is designed to actively engage and attract amateur teams to not only compete and show what they are made of, but also to have fun. SMURFING actively ruins the sportsmanship of the tournament as is not fair to any other teams competing, as such anyone caught doing so will be permanently banned from participating in any future tournaments run under the AEL.

Lobby Rules:
All lobbies are created by AEL admins in accordance to their relative start time. It may be requested by the teams/players involved for a match to be rescheduled only if circumstances allow it and there is valid reason to do so.

All teams are required to have their players ready in the lobby 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. Only official tournament players, casters and admins may enter the lobby.

There will be late penalties applied to a team that has one or more players missing passed the scheduled start time:
5-10: -30 seconds bonus time
10-15: -70 seconds bonus time
15-20: -110 seconds bonus time
>20: Match Forfeit
Teams that are participating in matches that go past their next scheduled time frame are exempt from late penalties.

Selection Priority for the group stages will be set to random, for those that make it into the main event, the first match will be set to random and any following matches selection priority goes to the opposing team. All teams that sit on the top of their match box will start on the Radiant side and teams underneath will start on the Dire side. An example is given here:


Teams are to comprise of the players that they signed up with. No other players will be accepted unless an admin is notified at least 1 hour prior to the scheduled match time. Players can be denied at the admin teams discretion. All teams are required to be appropriately tagged with their teams tag and any stand-ins are required to use the 'Stand-in' tag.Teams found to be violating any of the above will be punished as seen fit by the admin team.

Are the times QLD time or?

Also my apologies we are signed up as Lyndon McBride, but our team name is "I'm the Wiz and Nobody Beats Me!" after seeing your post and us having to tag. Just letting you know, if you are able to change our name. Thankyou sorry for the hassle. We were going to change our team name but with the bother during the comp and changing etc, we will just keep the Wiz for this one.

Cheers!

Currently we are still waiting for a response from Valve as it does start in less than a week. Any votes here will be appreciated: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=343437005

I see the groups are scheduled on different dates, I think personally, we'd like to get as many games as possible on the weekends. We're playing in group D. Is it OK to try and reschedule some of the games to play them earlier?

As mentioned in the rules reschedules are allowed to be requested given the circumstances are deemed appropriate by admins, otherwise teams are expected to follow the schedule.
