There is no entry fee but as always, donations and gifts are always accepted. This tournament is being sponsored by SGO, all prizes provided by them as well so, if you're inclined to drop a few bucks in the donation bin on the SGO site or the LC site, it's much appreciated.
Our set of rules are as SIM as possible without being too heavy handed or leaning toward one set of "SIM" guidelines than others. SIM means different things to different people, but generally speaking, this will not be lobby ball and will have rules. That said - with no entry fees, we expect fair gameplay and good sportsmanship all around. This tournament is intended to help promote your league, your players, your brand and have fun in the process so in short - don't be a jerk or get pissed or nit-picky if you lose.
To review, this is a SIM Tournament Play it like you would see on Sunday. General rules.
- No cheesing! (Excessive tosses, drags, money plays, etc)
- 4th and 1 on the opponent side of the 50 is acceptable anytime.
- Going for it on 4th down is unacceptable in your own territory unless the situation calls for it (down multiple scores in the 4th, little time left, etc. you guys watch the NFL, you get it).
- Chew clock only allowed if up 21+ or leading with less than 4 mins in game.
- No roll out passes exploiting CPU's AI. Be sim - mix up runs and passes.
- You have 24 hrs to get in contact with opponent, failure to communicate is subject to disqualifcations.
- No Nano Blitzes
TBD but no later than the first week of June. The date will depend on how quickly the brackets fill up.
Leagues can pick their best players to play and those players can pick their favorite team to use.
Again, there will be two tournament brackets, one for PS4, one for XBOX1. 32 players from 16 leagues (2 players per league) in each.
Base All Madden. More details to come.
That's it! Be sure to get your players together quickly and register for this torunament!
