We in there!


Hello players, this year I will be hosting NATT. This is in place of USATT. I came back from the shadows to ensure our players have something to fill the gap between LMS and TWC. I am here today to tell you that we are hosting a 32 player tournament! New blood and veterans battle it out face to face in a 1v1 double knock-out tournament setting to see who is truly. NA's finest! I hope to see a big turn out and good luck!

Sign-ups are to be done by PM. Send me a message on the website via Forum PM. There is no rank cap but only the top 32 ranked players will play. Also include your timezone for scheduling purposes.

Rules

1: 1 on 1 Taiko Match in team style format with a point given to the highest score.
2: Best of 5 for Group Stages, Best of 9 for Finals & Grand Finals, and Best of 7 for every other round.
3: Map pools will contain 7 NoMod, 3 HD, 3 HR, 3 DT, 3 FM, and 1 Tiebreaker.
4: Each Player is only allowed to pick once from each of the mod pools respectively.
5: You are allowed 1 map ban per match, this does not include the Tie-breaker.
6: Each player gets 1 warm-up map, if they wish to play one. A warm-up must be shorter than 4 minutes. If both players agree to one warm-up, the duration must be shorter than 7 minutes.
7: Roll is used to determine who will get the first pick and the first ban. The winner of roll will select the first map, whereas the loser will ban the first map.
8: Tiebreaker will be played if both players are 1 point away from winning. It will not be Free Mod.
9: Players will be seeded according to their global rank.
10: This tournament style is much like the World Cup, with a Group Stage followed by a knock-out structure with a loser bracket.
11: Only Players with a United States, Canadian, or Mexican flag on their account are allowed to register in this tournament.
12: In cases where a map results in a tie, the map is nullified and the player who picked said map will pick another. (In a tiebreaker, it will be played with free mod on, then DT if it results in another tie.

Sorry but No :a

This tournament is restricted to North America only.
You could host your own South American one though if you wished on your own terms!

As cool as it would be to join this tournament I think I am too much of a beginner in Taiko but I will definitely watch. Just wondering why only us, Canada, and Mexico? Technically Central America is considered part of North America.

Even if you aren't very good, tournaments always end up being fun to play in, and I think you'll have fun regardless of the result!

There's very few active Taiko players in Central America and all of the small island countries/territories, and I think the main issue was communication. With that being said, if someone from one of those countries approaches saying they want in and would keep up with it, you can't really say no to them. But for now it's just US/Canada/Mexico because that's easier.

Sorry but what I said is final

UPDATE: I am without internet for an indefinite period of time. Things will go as planned though.
If the minimum of 24 registered players is not met by the 15th. It will be extended by a week.

The estimated difficulty will be around middle 4* maps and slightly higher. The difficulty will go up with each stage so be prepared to bring your all!

It looks like the registration date will be most likely pushed back due to not enough registered players, just a fair warning and prizes will be posted when I get further details pertaining to them.

STATUS UPDATE


Most Important News First: The registration phase has been pushed back a week due to an inefficient amount of Players registered. Be sure to get your last minute registrations in now. If we do not get 24 registered players by the 21st, registrations will be opened to South and Central america.

Prizes: The Staff are no longer giving out prizes for community tournaments but there will be supporter at minimum for the winners, look at the main post to see the exact prizes guaranteed.

Map pool: It is ready to be released at the same time as the groups and schedule are released.

Be sure to spread the word of this tournament!
