What if I have mardi gras oogie? Can I choose any from golden avatars ?
Yaay! I've been longing for a GC tourny for such a long time!
This looks good, but the only thing that stands out to me is the amount of kills needed to win. I really feel like it should be changed from 5 to something like 10. If the time limit had been 15 minutes, 5 kills would have made more sense. 10 kills got better synergy with 30 minutes for sure. It would also prevent the games from being very passive/decided on just a few plays/mistakes. An example from the '2v2 Valentines 1 tournament': After 10 minutes of passive farming, one single teamfight decides the match; their Magmus dies 0.1 second before me and we win the match and move on to the semifinals. Such a rough way to lose... I just think a few more kills needed would make the games more fair and show the real potential of the players.
Also, what are your thoughts on Banning Pick? There are such a few heroes in Banning draft and if one team manages to get any of the heroes: Panda, Succu, Tort, Pest or Gaunt that team will most likely win (unless you're called DeathGr0wL/ImbaBoy, then you'll win with anything..) Potential combos/heroes that work well together will get very limited and hard to get, but that's maybe the reasoning behind Banning draft, I don't know. One possible way could be that you can ask the enemy team before the game if they are up for Banning Pick, if the answer is no, then Banning Draft is the way to go, no questions asked.
These are just my opinions, you do what you want with the tournament! Will sign up for it regardless!

pfffff,bring it back to MM S2, then we can talk about tournaments and supporting the map.
If you dont sign up in forums you will be removed from the brackets!
What does this mean: "You MUST wait 10 minutes after the start time, any longer then that is at your discretion" ?
Also what is the signup deadline, if any?
