Hello, and welcome to the Single Player Edition of Taiko World Cup: Last Man Standing. This time, Dainesl(?) and I will be taking the role of running the tournament. With the TWCLMS2 being a nice success we hope to focus on the core aspect of LMS even more this time: You, being the very best.

For those of you who are just joining us, let us explain what TWC: LMS - Single Player Edition is. It is a spin-off of the traditional Taiko: Last Man Standing, with a twist! Rather than being two teams trying to eliminate the other team by scoring better, you are playing alone. And you aren’t going to face a single player only - you will face several of them! Each player selects a song and plays normally, but the player who scores the lowest is eliminated, think of it like dodgeball!

We’re very excited and optimistic to see the best of the best competing in a new tournament style that shall bring fun to all participants, staff and players! Every player, every country, you are all invited! So with that said, we welcome you warmly and with open arms to the Taiko World Cup: Last Man Standing - Single Player Edition

Please read the rules carefully and thoroughly!
1.1: The Taiko World Cup - Last Man Standing - Single Player Edition (LMS) is a single player tournament, with the aspects of knock-out rules, and a double elimination bracket-like system.

1.2: The maps for each round will be announced by the mapset selector in advance on the Sunday before the actual matches take place.
  • 1.2.1: There will also be a Hidden, HardRock and DoubleTime bracket, as well as a Tiebreaker bracket.

1.3: Match schedule will be settled by the Tournament Management.

1.4: If no staff or referee is available, the match will be postponed.

1.5: Use of the Visual Settings options are allowed.

1.6: If the Tiebreaker ends in a draw, another Tiebreaker will take its place. It will be kept a secret until a draw occurs.

1.7: If a player disconnects, then they’re eliminated from the game.
  • 1.7.1: Unless the disconnected player has a screenshot with their final score, or the server saved their score before disconnection, so we can compare it to the others.
    1.7.2: The second exception is when the player is disconnected at the beginning of the game, before the first 50 notes appeared. In that case, there will be a rematch.

1.8: Maps cannot be reused in the same match unless the game was nullified.

1.9: You will have 10 minutes after the scheduled time to be able to play. If you are not available after 10 minutes have passed you lose your match.

1.10: Lag is not a valid reason to nullify a map.

1.11: Unexpected incidents are handled by the tournament management.

1.12: Any modification of these rules will be announced.
  • 2.1: For a player to sign up, you must PM one of the Tournament Management.

    2.2: The maximum amount of players is 64.

    2.3: The Tournament Team involved directly with the map pool may not participate as players in this tournament. This does not include referees, streamers and commentators.

    2.4: To ensure valid registrations, any registrations and changes will be checked.

    [list:1337]2.4.1: You must specify your time zone (UTC+/-) and your current rank so your registration counts as valid.

    2.4.2: Please have "[TWC:LMS SE]" in your PM title (with brackets).

2.5: All successfully registered and confirmed players will be registered.
3.1: The tournament will have two brackets: A winner’s a loser’s bracket.There will be a total of 4 stages in the winner’s bracket, a total of 5 in the loser’s bracket.

3.2: Every stage is a knock-out stage, which means that the losing players will either be eliminated from the tournament or enter the loser’s bracket (from winner’s down).

3.3: Round 1 matches are seeded by rank.

3.4: Winning condition: In all rounds, you need to knockout all players. The weakest player of every played map gets knocked out from the match (or lose a life). Only the last player(s) left will win the match.
  • - From Round 1 to and including Round 2/LRound 3, everyone has two lives.
    - From (L)Semifinals onward all players have three lives.
4.1: A referee (or tournament manager) will create a multiplayer room at least 10 minutes in advance. Players must gather during this period.
  • 4.1.1: The room will be locked. The multiplayer invite will be sent to all players as soon as possible.
    4.1.2: Room settings are taiko, Head to Head, Win Condition: 'Score'. Room name must be "TWC:LMS SE 2015: MatchNumber"
    4.1.3: The players must occupy slots 1, 2, 3 and 4
    4.1.4: The setup at the start of the match must remain consistent throughout.

4.2: There may be up to two warm-ups per match. The maximum length is 3 minutes.

4.3: Map selection will alternate between every player selecting a map out of the map pool. Each player must use "!roll" once in #multiplayer to determine which player selects second/third/fourth. Highest score will mean second pick. The lowest ranked player will receive the first pick.
  • 4.3.1: The player may select maps out of the NoMod bracket freely.
    4.3.2: Maps may be only picked once per match.
    4.3.3: Selection out of mod-specific brackets is limited. Each player may only select one map from each mod-restricted bracket during the match.
    4.3.4: When a player is down to 1 life, this player receives the next pick. This player will have to skip his next pick in the !roll cycle unless he was the next to pick anyway to avoid them picking a map twice in a row.

4.4: In case only two players with one life each remain, the tiebreaker must be played.
  • 4.4.1: In case two players advance to the next round, the tiebreaker will be played when three players with one life each remain.

    4.5: Results will be published via the Statistics page.

6.2: Matches may overlap.

6.3: Scheduling will be handled by the Tournament Management. Schedules and map pools will be released on the Sunday before the first matches of the actual stage. The Tournament Management will try to create the schedule to respect the participant's time zone.

If there are any questions about the rules, please either post in this thread, or contact a Tournament Manager privately!
