Ladies and gentlemen, today marks the official announcement of our next Heroes of the Storm tournament: MadCast: Kings of the Nexus. Please read carefully the below rules, as you will be held responsible for knowing them should you sign up.

  1. The tournament will be a 5v5 draft pick format on various maps with double elimination rules.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
  2. Teams will be formed via a draft conducted approximately 30 minutes before the start of the tournament. The draft will occur in snake draft fashion. Players will all be drafted from the same draft pool.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
  3. Only players present and accounted for at the draft will be eligible to play in the tournament.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
  4. Signups in the signup thread will receive priority over people who show up on the afternoon of the event. The amount of teams in the event and identity of players permitted to participate are all at the discretion of MadCast: MrEpic. Players may show up on the afternoon of the event and participate, but they will only receive spots if there are enough left over after all signups are placed on a team.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
  5. Skill level is not a requirement however you must have fourteen level 5 heroes (This includes the 10 Free to Play Heroes) to support the draft mode.                                                                                                                                                                           
  6. Teams will be selected by captains. Captains will be designated on a volunteer basis at the discretion of MadCast: MrEpic. If there are not enough volunteers, captains will be assigned at the discretion of MadCast: MrEpic.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  7. Do not sign up for the tournament if you cannot attend and play the full tournament, which could run several hours for the winning team. There will be severe consequences for those who leave the tournament once they are placed on a team.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
  8. All Staff, SFMs, RFMs, FMs, and candidates of MadCast are welcome to participate, subject to the availability of slots. Please promote this event to your friends if they’d be interested in a night of kills, tower diving, and hilarity.      

 

MadCast: Kings of the Nexus is hereby scheduled for 3:00 PM Eastern on Saturday, April 30th, 2016. All players are expected to be present and ready by 2:30 Eastern for team selection. Any changes to that date and time will occur in this thread and will be edited into this post. Failure to appear at that time will be grounds for removal from the event along with appropriate consequences, which will be harsher than usual given the nature of this event and its size. Please observe the Event Attendance Policy.

Casting support will be provided for this tournament. We have multiple casting teams arranged from the Admin and Full Member ranks.

 

The winners of the tournament will receive forum badges, and have their names recorded in MadCast. The winning team will have their names recorded in a graphic that will be pinned at the top of our Heroes of the Storm forums, to forever have bragging rights over all that competed.

 

To sign up for MadCast: Kings of the Nexus, please post below with your Battle Net Tag, level, willingness to be captain, and your favorite five heroes. An example follows:

Archillusive, I sent you a PM. Some stuff we have to discuss before you can apply to the tournament.

 

 

As reminder, this is on Saturday. I will be sending PMs out on Thursday and Friday to people willing to be captains.

Remember, people that sign up in this thread will be prioritized over those showing up at the door.
