    G4 Hero C x Hero D

    ok too, 1 pointo for victory; My doubt is: IF me and my opponent draw in POINTS 2-2, whe must to replay again all 4 games ? i really dont undestood this part,
    Hi. A 2-2 score is valid for the round. The issue is if a game is a draw. Any game that is a draw needs to be replayed to get a winner and loser for that game. You should play it immediately after the draw game ended, with same person going first.

    I've updated the info in the original post too, based on some feedback/questions so far.

    Thanks and good luck everyone!

    - For each region (Americas, Europe/Africa, Asia/Australasia), there will be a SEVEN-ROUND event over MULTIPLE WEEKS.
    - You can only take part in ONE regional qualifier.
    - All rounds will be played using the Swiss 2-Hero 4-Game (S2H4G) Format (see below)
    - Each round lasts five days (from Thursday to Monday). You will be told your opponent on the Thursday and then need to arrange a time to play your games by the end of your Monday (in your timezone). Aim to play on the weekend!
    - The gap on Tuesday/Wednesday is there for me to attempt to resolve any situations where a match has not been played.
    - Maximum of 128 players per regional. Sign up ahead of time to avoid disappointment!
    - You can sign-up here: http://www.shadowera.com/wc2015.php
    - The top ranking players at the end of each regional will earn a spot in the Grand Finals.
    - The specific number of players that can qualify from each regional will be proportional to number of entrants and will be confirmed at the end of round 1.
    Just wanted to give you some clue as to how the "specific number of players that can qualify from each regional will be proportional to number of entrants and will be confirmed at the end of round 1" will work.

    As of today, there are 33 entrants for Americas, 27 for Europe/Africa and 23 for Asia/Australasia. Let's pretend that's how many we have at the end of round 1, for the purpose of an example. So that's 83 total entrants and 29 spots available for the grand finals. For it to be proportional, that would mean the top 11.53 from Americas, top 9.43 from Europe/Africa and top 8.04 from Asia/Australasia would go through, but obviously we can't send fractional people through, so it would be top 11, top 9 and top 8 respectively.

    To handle the leftovers, I will be using this rule: Any remaining spots from the 29 available will be given to the regionals in order of biggest first, so 12 would go through for Americas in this case.

    Hope that makes sense and also helps you choose which regional to enter if you are so flexible that you can handle being available at sensible times for more than one regional.

    On the subject of being available at sensible times for the regional, if your availability does not match up with the majority of people in your regional because you are not in an appropriate timezone then that may end up counting against you if matches are not played.

    Yes, it is OK. Consider it like the person travelled to compete in the event and was willing to play at suitable hours for that region.

    If you are not happy with this decision, please discuss on the thread I made for this elsewhere:

    This thread is for me to give information, not to justify decisions that have been made.

    I just found this from 2012:

    With that in mind, I've updated the S2H4G scoring accordingly, to only give 0.5 bonus points for a match win.
