ZH Test Map Invitational (You're All Invited!)

The big boss themusic has requested an off-season tournament revolving around the new testmap, and as a servant of the people I am here to provide! The intention is to have high level play on the new map, so the updated mechanics can be tested.


The format will be similar to the Amateur Tournament. The bracket will be double elimination and the opening rounds will be uncasted (or community / voluntarily casted - teams can veto if they dont want to wait). Loser's bracket final and winner's bracket final will be Bo3. Grand Final will be Bo5 with the team coming from the Winner's bracket having a 1 game advantage. All 3 "finals" will be casted.

Since it's my opinion that a tournament with completely unrestricted signup wouldn't be competitive outside of 2-4 teams, there are going to be restrictions on signups (which will be released after ZHL Finals on Sunday). Instead of a LK/Watermelon/Resslayer/Vapour team think more along the lines of Watermelon/Swift/Entropy/Slide. You will be able to choose your teammates, so you'll be able to play with the players that you like playing with, however nobody will be able to completely stack their team.

Players that have not signed up for a previous ZHL/ZHPL season will be ineligible to play. I don't want to background check every player to prevent smurfing, so I will be relying on the skills of past ZHL administrations.

1 sub per team would be allowed.

All games would be played on central.

This will be a one day tournament - expected to run roughly 4-5 hrs for teams that make it to finals.

The tournament will happen on Sunday the 13th at 4 PM EST

We've decided to implement a salary cap system for this tournament



Each team will be allotted 30 points worth of "cap" space. Your bench player will not count towards your cap, however there are two rules regarding this: 1) Your total on-ice cap can never exceed 30 2) 16 value and 12 value players cannot be bench players.

To clarify the second rule, this is mainly to stop teams from artificially lowering the player pool. This is not saying that if your highly paid players aren't performing you can't bench them for a lower paid player.

We have divided players into 5 "pools". IMPORTANT NOTE: If someone was omitted from the original list, that DOES NOT mean they have a value of 1. It simply means they were overlooked, or not expected to play. People who were left off the list can post in this thread to have a value assigned to them.

Here are the current pools of players:

Cap Hit 16:
Proster


Cap Hit 12:
Blitzerg
TwoDeuce
ResSlayer (G)
Guerrila

Cap Hit 7:
Swift
Krazymen



Cap Hit 5:
Eldersage (G)
PHILL (G)
Fable
Slide
Death
Tyrion
Sanji
Angrytits

Cap Hit 1:
BlueDream
Cafca
iSpyGecko
Kaioken
Kelvin
Asgarr
Loogik
Teroh
Kholin
Onslaught
iFound
Shaftman
lykingond
Resteral
muFFinMAN





I don't expect every player listed to participate. Gauging individual interest will be up to the team captain trying to create the team. As long as teams are cap-compliant there should be no further issues with signups.

If you wish to apply for off-position let me know and your cap hit will be adjusted accordingly.

Team Hit List - 27

kWAkStER (12)
Entropy (7)
Mythic (7)
muFFinMAN (1)
pETeRdLaI (5)



multiple players on this team also asked for off-position cap:

Bulbaaaur (5)G
stealth (1)G
Goza (5)G

One extra sub spot was granted for two reasons: 1) the team captain is unsure if Goza/Art will be able to make it and 2) we're nearing the point where teams are more difficult to come by, and this doesn't appear to be malicious activity to limit the player pool. Allowing an extra sub gives players a chance to play a few games, as opposed to 0 games off of a team.


Battered Sleek Syndrome - 21
Sir (7)
Tenkz (12)
Assertive (1) G
Sleek (1)
L1ghtning (1) S

At least We Try - (12):

Eldersage (5)
SwedishDoll (1)
Tyrion (5)
Dalton (1)
