    AsiaFortress Cup 13

     

    [Rules] [Unlocks] [Division Administrators] [Key Dates and Map Pool]

    It's time to get your rosters finalised and ramp up your scrims, because the thirteenth edition of the AsiaFortress Cup is finally upon us! Newcomers and veterans alike are welcome to battle it out to claim the coveted (?) title of AsiaFortress Champion — and while the format and procedures should be familiar to the experienced players, we've made some changes in response to your feedback, so be sure to read the whole post.

     

    First and foremost, we're welcoming a new set of faces to the AsiaFortress team to match the new year. Head Administrator teejay has stepped down to take a less active role, and we'd like to thank him for his service and dedication to improving the league. In his place, we have fwishy officially stepping up. Gothmog and teejay, fwishy and LERL, Takuto and himari will be managing Divisions 1, 2 and 3 respectively for AFC13. If you have any questions, approach them!

     

    Now, onto the changes! The map pool for AFC13 will see a slight change. Prolands will be replacing Badlands and Sunshine will be replacing Granary. We've made mercenary rules a bit more stringent — only players participating in a lower division may still be called in without the other team's consent (provided they are informed, of course), while all other players may be used as mercenaries if and only if both teams consent. We've also added pause rules to make it clear what is considered reasonable. Specifically, each team is entitled to a single five minutes pause for technical reasons per map, and while your opponent may allow more as a courtesy, they are certainly not obliged to.

     

    Playoff procedures have also been changed. Bans and picks will be done from the whole mappool, with the home team banning one map followed by the away team banning one map. The away team will then pick the first map, followed by the home team picking the second and third map. In the event of a best-of-five series, the away team will decide the remaining map order. Furthermore, the Division 2 Grand Finals have been reverted to a best-of-three series, so the only playoff match which will be best-of-five is the Division 1 Grand Finals.

     

    We're also happy to announce that AsiaFortress is now officially collaborating with PURE Servers, and as such, PURE Scrim Servers will be treated as official AsiaFortress servers for the purposes of AFC13 (i.e. servers may be booked for matches in the thread, and in the event that no alternative server can be agreed upon by both teams, Division Managers may declare that a match is to be played on a PURE Server).

     

    As always, if you're not entirely clear about the changes, or if this is your first time playing in the AsiaFortress Cup, the full rules can be found in this thread. Once you're all clear, head on over to the sign-up thread and register your team! Sign-ups close 31st December 2017 and the cup starts 8th January 2017, so don't miss it!

    AsiaFortress Cup 12: Conclusion

     

    With last week's Division 3 Grand Finals, AFC 12 has finally drawn to a close! Congratulations to Too Fluffy for You for proving that Division 3 did, in fact, stand a chance; to ERA for rounding out their ERA of dominance (over Division 2); and to TEAM FORTRESS 2 for playing their namesake to perfection! We've heard your feedback (unless you haven't posted it, in which case head over here) and taken it into consideration, so stay tuned for changes coming to a league near you!

    It was brought to the administrative team’s attention that player ‘Jisoo’ from team ‘Remember Us’ is a smurf of a player currently active in a different Division.

    After a lengthy investigation, the administrative team has found a wide range of evidence leading to the conclusion that the player in question is ‘DeDstar’, previously of team ERA in Division 2.

    Sentence
    As stated in section 6D of the rules, smurfing and use of alternative accounts in multiple teams is against the rules (as the community is no doubt very familiar with now), and thus warrants the disqualification of REUS, with all its matches during the regular season turned over.

    Player DeDstar, in violation of rule 6D, will also suffer a ban for the period of 1 season, excluding AFC12.

    Furthermore, team leaders ‘Zel’, ‘Moo’ and ‘Kairos’ of REUS will also suffer a 1 season suspension from captaining.

    In summary
    REUS disqualified, matches overturned
    ‘DeDstar’ banned 1 season
    ‘Zel’, ‘Moo’ and ‘Kairos’ suspended from captaining 1 season

    Conclusion
    The administrators would like remind that all AsiaFortress Cup 12 Participants are subject to the rules, and must follow them in order to maintain the fun and fairness of the competition for all parties.

    It has come to the attention of the administration that team poe-tar-toe has forfeited at least part of all three of their regular season matches so far. In accordance with section 1c of the AsiaFortress rules, the team is thus considered inactive and removed from the league. In addition, due to their poor captaining, leaders (YELLERR and  Frenchy) have been banned from leading an AsiaFortress team in the following season (AFC13).

     

    In addition, the following teams have issued statements to either the admins or their opponents that they have disbanded:

    bong

    THROWTECH

    Dark Wolves Esports

     

    Furthermore, in light of his history of poor captaining, the team leader of bong, sack has been banned permanently from leading an AsiaFortress team.

     

    In lighter news, the first Transfer Window of the season is now open! If your team happened to disband for the fifth season in a row, this is your perfect chance to find a new one!

    It has recently come to light that team Kweebs has been utilizing a smurf account of a banned player.

    Evidence

    l0203006.log:L 02/03/2017 - 23:15:27: "teehee<433><[U:1:139041873]><>" connected, address "125.212.xxx.xx:42407"

    l0723049.log:L 07/23/2017 - 20:26:26: "Spongebutt<219><[U:1:155077433]><>" connected, address "125.212.xxx.xx:36923"

    Player ‘teehee’ was banned from AsiaFortress League participation for one season due to smurfing in Division 3 while participating in Division 2. Matching IPs between players ‘teehee’ and ‘Spongebutt’ were found, indicating that both are the same player.

    Sentence

    Player ‘teehee’ received a league ban for 1 season and has failed to follow his sentence. Therefore, his ban has been extended to 2 seasons (until AFC14).

    Furthermore, Kweebs has been utilising the smurf of a player banned from league participation, and will therefore have to be disqualified from the competition, overturning all of their matches to their opponents.

    Finally, team leader “Rustic” has been suspended from captaining for 1 season (until AFC14).

    In summary:

    • Kweebs has been disqualified.
    • Team leader of Kweebs, “Rustic” suspended from captaining for 1 season.
    • ‘teehee’ ban extended to 2 seasons.
    • Matches overturned

    Conclusion
    The administrators would like to remind bans and suspensions meted out by the team are to be taken seriously, and that circumventing them will lead to further consequence.
     
    Furthermore, the team would like to remind all captains and participants that it is your responsibility to ensure that players picked up are not of a shady or problematic nature, lest it affect the team in league competitions.
