Season 2 is brought to you by Origin: https://originpc.com.au/

Signups for season 2 are open now and will close on July 3rd at 8pm. Late regos will be open for 48 hours.

Throughout the season you will play 1 match roughly every 5 days. The season will have a minimum of 11 rounds of swiss, up from 8 rounds in season 1. This will allow teams to overcome an early loss easier. Receiving 8 wins (3 losses) will guarantee you make LAN, receiving 7 wins will likely mean you have to have a play-off match to qualify.

The LAN finals is scheduled for September 23rd and 24th in Adelaide at the CG Studio, 10 Lagunta Ave, Edwardstown, SA.

Please find the full details below.

Name: Australian Esports Masters #2

Hello everyone, the last round of matches have now been created. As posted last week, reaching 6 wins guarantees LAN qualification.

The following teams have qualified so far:
Legacy eSports
Dark Sided
Tainted Black

The following teams will qualify if they win this weeks match (ie 3 of the 6 teams):
DedSet
AVANT GARDE
MoneyShot
Funky Monkeys
Skyfire
Incept e-sports

This will give us 6 of the 8 teams for LAN finals. Leaving 8 teams on 5-3 playing off for 2 positions. They will play a single elimination bracket, until only 2 teams remain (ie the grand final of the bracket is not played). You will be entered into matches as usual on the AEM website, you will need to play your matches as fast as possible. Any remaining matches will be played out on Sunday the 25th of June, starting around 4pm Sydney time. It is assumed at least the first round of the bracket will be completed before then. Teams will need to enter their match times as usual in order to be entered into the bracket.

Any teams wishing to pull out of the LAN final for any reason needs to open a support ticket ASAP (regardless whether they have already qualified). It will become a significant problem if I am not alerted by the end of round 8.

LAN Format - DAY ONE - Saturday July 1st:
The LAN format will consist of two groups of 4. You will play the 3 other teams in your group. All matches are BO3. The top 2 teams from each group will proceed to finals on Sunday. Teams drawing will be resolved with head-to-head, then map difference, then round difference. This means if you are tieing with another team in your group, whoever won in your match is ranked higher.

Thus, all teams will receive at least 3 BO3 matches as a worst case scenario. The first match will start at 10AM, doors open at 9AM. We will have the stage and the room upstairs running all day, ie two matches running concurrently the entire day.


LAN Format - DAY TWO - Finals - Sunday July 2nd:
9AM Sunday morning will be used for any matches that failed to complete on Saturday if required.

Semi Finals - 10:00AM start.
1st placed team from Group A plays 2nd placed team from Group B - BO3
1st placed team from Group B plays 2nd placed team from Group A - BO3
Losers final - losers from each match - BO3
Grand final - winners from each match - BO3

In the event of any issues, admin decision on the day will over-ride any of the above rules/structure if required.

LAN venue address:
10 Lagunta Ave, Edwardstown, SA, 5039

Good luck to all teams in their remaining matches.

Thanks
There will be 8 full rounds rather than what was posted previously. This will mean that teams that reach 6 wins will have qualified, and all teams on 5-3 will either play-off or will play a round 9 themselves, and then the winners will play-off.

It is essential that round 7 and 8 run smoothly without any major reschedules. Teams that reach 6 wins will be able to book flights with some decent notice, whilst the teams on 5-3 will have less notice. More info will be posted towards the end of round 8.

If you have any questions, open a support ticket. Future seasons will likely be a full 11-12 rounds to make the end of the season much smoother and to allow teams to overcome early losses easier.

Thanks
Spectator tickets to the finals can now be purchased from here.
All teams will be emailed throughout the tournament with match information, please keep an eye on your emails. You'll be required to offer times to your opponents and will have 24 hours to do so or you will forfeit the match.

All matches throughout the season are best of 3 and EAC is required for all palyers. There will be a minimum of 7 rounds of matches for the season. Then there will be play-offs for any teams tieing for top 8, or there will be an 8th round of matches if too many teams are tieing. If you run into any problems, open a support ticket.

Late rego's are open until Sunday.

Thanks
Hello everyone, the regos for our first tournament close tomorrow night at 8pm. Please ensure your team has 5 players and your entry fee paid. You will be entered into your first round match within the first 24 hours. For each match, one of the teams will offer 3 or more times to the opposing team who will have 24 hours to accept a match time.

All players must use EAC. Team rosters will be editable until the end of the first round of matches, no roster changes are allowed after that.

Late registrations may be allowed for the first day or two, however late regos will mostly be queued and accepted in groups of two.

Please open a support ticket if you have any questions.

Thanks
Today we are proud to announce the launch of the Australian E-Sports Masters website.
In an effort to create accessible competitive LANs on a much more frequent scale in the Oceanic region, CyberGamer has launched our new sister site that will play host to these competitions.

To kick things off with a bang we are excited to announce the first competition the Australian E-Sports Masters will host, an eight team CSGO event with an online qualifying process in the form of a mini league. The online component will feature a best of three swiss format and run for approximately two months. There will be no skill bracket separation outside of the default swiss pairings.

Swiss format starts everyone at 0W - 0L and will pair you in a match with a team on the same wins and losses as you each round. All qualifier matches are BO3. The qualifiers will be roughly 7 rounds and will continue until the top 8 is known. To save you from wasting your time you will be eliminated from the qualifiers if you reach 4 losses. Your matches will be scheduled via offering/accepting times

LAN Format will feature two groups of four in a BO1 round robin competition with the top two teams progressing to the BO3 finals single elimination bracket on the second day.

Signups for season 1 are open now and will close on April 27th.
