This weekend, Halfy will be hosting a special EUW tournament based around 1 v 1 Howling Abyss matches. Check in with Halfy for details of scheduling and rules. I’ve reviewed the main points, and on that basis authorized this as a scored Factions mini-tournament.
The tournament will open with four groups of four Summoners. Each group will contain one Summoner from each faction. Every Summoner will face off against every other Summoner in their group. The best Summoners from each group will move on to duel each other. There will then be a round of semifinals, followed by the finals. If at any point the only Summoners left in contention are from the same faction, that faction wins.
Matches will be fought on the Howling Abyss. Victory may be achieved by reaching 100 CS, destroying the enemy’s tower, or drawing first blood.
Usual rules, including Champion lists, will apply. Halfy is authorized to make on-the-spot decisions as necessary, but should not deviate from the standard tournament rules absent extraordinary circumstances. Halfy is strongly encouraged to consult with BourrinoSprotch, who as EUW Admin has immediate authority over the conduct of this tournament.
Each match will have a base value of 1 point. That may not sound like a lot, but there will be a lot of matches.
Running Your Own Tournament
First, I’d like to thank Halfy for organizing this tournament.
If anyone in any region would like to run a tournament of their own, please contact us to propose your idea. NA has been having Featured Matches every Saturday and Sunday for a while now, and I wouldn’t be averse to turning over one of the last few slots in the arc if someone has an interesting idea.
