Join now!
You can continue to join at ANY time. New tournaments will be created around the 15th in "odd" months (January, March, May, July, September, November).
Just post in this topic if you'd like to join with your clan. Preferably add two contacts. You only need 3 accounts to fill all slots and you can even join with a single account.
Any volounteers to help in the organization are also welcome!
Current organisers are Math Wolf & linberson.

Background
This is a laid-back clan competition with a focus on:
* just playing the game with minimal rules.
* creating a fluid ranking for clans.
* allowing clans to join or leave whenever they want.
This is in no way intended to replace Clan League, which provides a more extensive and direct format for clans to battle each other.

The Format
  • Two clan managers for each clan provide communication
    (Currently prefered through PM with Math Wolf [2] -> https://www.warzone.com/Profile?p=7636877711 )
  • Clans are continuously ranked by points scored (more details below).
  • Bragging rights for winning a cup (details below).
Every two months, a new cycle starts with:
  • Two 2v2 single elimination tournaments worth 4 points
  • Four 1v1 single elimination tournaments worth 3 points
  • These are Warzone tournaments without seeding
  • All tournaments have a 3 day boot, vacation NOT allowed. A 5 days banked boot will be included to allow for roughly the equivalent of a single vacation. Also note that auto-commit does NOT break vacation and account sharing is allowed in Clan Cup.
  • The 8 slots in each cycle should be taken by minimum 3 different accounts in the clan (clan icon must match on the date of tournament creation) with a maximum of 3 slots per account. Not all 8 slots have to be filled every time by every clan, so feel free to skip tournaments that you don't like.
  • Templates are decided by 6 different clans that are randomly drawn from participating clans. In subsequent months, (1) clans that have the longest time since they previously chose a template and (2) have played the most cycles get priority to pick a template. Templates must have decent strategic quality. A template qualifies if it has been used in a competitive event before or uses standard low-luck settings (e.g. WR or SR, 16% luck or lower, manual picking, cycling move order). We recognize at minimum all official ladders, most Quick Match templates, MDL, previous Clan Leagues, AWP, original Nations Cup and potentially other competitive events from the past and future. Templates can be repeated with one cycle in between.
  • There are no further rules, just play the game. Taking over accounts, using alts, switching clans, playing with different accounts over different seasons, discussing moves with others, playing for different clans, teaming with your alt, ... it's all allowed. You could even use a "Clan account" to play and discuss moves in your clan forum (just don't complain if your opponent has a spy in your clan). Breaking Warzone rules is of course not allowed but will not be penalized by Clan Cup organizers.

Points, ranking, bragging
  • Every tournament is a Cup. Win the tournament to win the Cup. But you keep it only as long as the same template is not reused in a future tournament. If another clan wins a future Clan Cup tournament on this template, they take it.
  • The total points of a clan are calculated as the sum of the points of individual tournaments.
  • The total points of the tournament are the tournament weight (3 (1v1) or 4 (2v2)) multiplied by a recency modifier (e.g. 10 for the most recent, the 10 most recent tournaments count, details below), multiplied by points for the finish (e.g. 50 for winner, details below).
  • Points for the finish are:
    1st: 50
    2nd: 30
    Semi-final: 18
    Quarter-final: 10
    Round of 16: 6
    Round of 32: 3
    Round of 64: 1
    Points are only awarded if the clan produced at least 1 win, byes do not count as wins, opponent boots do.
  • Recency modifier is as follows:
    ongoing: 10
    previous: 10
    2 cycles ago: 9
    3 cycles ago: 7
    4 cycles ago: 5
    5 cycles ago: 3
    6 cycles ago: 2
    7 cycles ago: 2
    8 cycles ago: 1
    9 cycles ago: 1
  • Example: Warzonians lost in the semi-final of a 2v2 tournament. Since then, 3 new cycles of tournaments have been created. Weight=4, Finish=18, recency=7, total points=4*18*7=504.
    Note: max points for a tournament is 4*50*10=2000, max points for a cycle is 10000, max total points is 50000.

Is it just a leaderboard, or is there a way to win it? Or does the scoreboard reset every so often? This may have been explained in the original post and I could've just missed it - I was a tad confused, sorry.

Best of luck with the competition. It's great to see people coming up with new ideas. I'm not sure whether I would have time for it, but I love the concept except... you are replacing a good way of dealing with the fact that people have lives (vacations) with a terrible one (account-sharing).

Not trying to police account-sharing is fair enough, but this will pressurise people into doing it. They play other competitions and will have a choice between sharing their account, playing when they don't have time to in lots of competitions (not an option if you're somewhere remote without internet), or taking a vacation and booting in yours.

I never join multi-day tournaments in which vacations are not honoured, not even casual ones, and don't think that they should even have that setting available.

The biggest problem with vacations not honored is the fact, that your vacations breaks when you do a turn in a game with vacations not honored.

Simple solution, use an alt or a shared acc. Enjoy!

With the new auto commit, I believe you can input your orders and when you would get booted due to being on vacation, they will just be implemented and not end your vacation. So not respecting vacations isn't a huge deal unless you literally don't have access to the internet (which of course does happen for people).

It continuously updates like a ladder. Points from wins decrease (slowly) over time.

you are replacing a good way of dealing with the fact that people have lives (vacations) with a terrible one (account-sharing).

I am aware and you are right. I never join tournaments without vacations allowed either by the way. However, the alternative is allowing a single person to stall a tournament for 70 days. I know that with vacations honoured, most tournaments would be stalled for quite a while and that goes completely against the concept. I also know that account sharing here could have potential consequences for CL, where I would very much like people to follow the rules, as I am in the audit panel myself.
This was not an easy choice at all, and the one I thought about the longest. It's not the best solution, it's the least bad.

With the new auto commit, I believe you can input your orders and when you would get booted due to being on vacation, they will just be implemented and not end your vacation. So not respecting vacations isn't a huge deal unless you literally don't have access to the internet (which of course does happen for people).

Has it been verified that it doesn't break vacation?

While I like seeding myself, it's probably best not to add it to not make things more complex than they need to be.
