Victory with the greatest weight disadvantage
Format: Competitors will compete only in their specific Pilot Skill Rating (tier) bracket. Before each match, competitors will contact their opponent (in Discord [Required]) and arrange a tonnage agreement. Either pilot may use any mech of any tonnage, so long as both pilots accept the arrangement. In the case that the pilots cannot agree on tonnages, then they will both pilot a stock trial mech decided by the match official at the time of the match; efficiencies will be ignored. There will be NO scheduling leniency for ‘mechlab reconfiguration during the best-of-three rounds. Once registration is closed (1159pm PST Friday, 14 Apr 2017), a bracket will be arranged and published through challonge.com (link will be posted in Discord). Pilots MUST contact their opponent to arrange tonnage agreements for each round in their match as soon as the bracket is published. Please pay attention to the brackets during the tournament; pilots will need to play another match to determine MC reward order should they place in the top 8 (if T1) or top 3 (if T2-T5).
No Streak SRMs
During the final round of the event, there will be a Roughneck standard pack given away in the twitch chat. There may also be other prizes given away in twitch chat throughout the event.
