Tier Swift tournament announcement
« on: November 25, 2016, 10:23:18 PM »
Hey guys. I have been in negotiations with Swift and he has agreed to come out retirement just one time for this special event. The start time for the tournament is still to be determined.
The first round of the tournament will be a play-in mini-swift round. Each player must get past the mini-swift to advance in the tournament. The settings for the first round will be match independent, and will be selected by swift once all players are determined.
All remaining rounds, except the final stage, will be played Best of 5,
on even faster
, with the settings selected by swift. He is considering his selection now and I will update this post once they are determined.
The winner from Group A will earn the privilege to play Swift in the final stage. Swift will come out of retirement to play the winner in a Best of 7, king-of-the-hill style match-up. Of course these games will be mere formality.
There is no set start time or time limit per round. Given the historic nature of this event, I wouldn't want someone to not have their opportunity due to a technicality. However, I would urge you to act "swiftly" to get your games completed; If at any point, swift becomes impatient, he will advance forward the round and declare the remaining winners. Thus is the privilege of being a Legend.
