Registration for the 2021 Vassal Team Cup is open!

Successor to the team event held last year, the 2021 Team Cup will begin the third week of August. This is a 50ss, GG2, singles tournament to determine what nation can put together the best team of Malifaux players! Gather your best and get signed up!

Registration will be open until August 5th, giving for us a week to organize groups and pairings.

The tournament will start with a round-robin group phase to determine the top 8 teams. Then the top 8 will proceed to an elimination bracket to determine who gets to take home the cup.

Teams must be made up of 3 players. Each player in a team must register as a different faction. Each team must play three different masters in a round. E.g., if a team has a Bayou player and a Neverborn player and Neverborn declares Zoraida in Round 1, Bayou cannot declare Zoraida that round.

We do not want any one country to make up more than half of the teams, but other than that, there will be no limit to the number of teams that can register per country. 

A player pack with detailed rules and pools for the group phase will be posted Soon™.

If you have any questions, contact myself or @Insomniakwulf. We're on the forums, but are more accessible via discord: alcathous#5867 // insomniakwulf#7233

How long is the time commitment?

Ideally it'll be 3 rounds in the group stage and 3 rounds for Top 8 elimination. If it needs to happen to make the number work, we might add a week to the group stage, but we'll try to avoid that if possible. 

It'll be 1/week per round similar to the World Series.

The group stage should end around the first week of September and the whole thing should be wrapped up by October.

Does this mean that group rounds will take place at the same time with final event of World Series?

Roughly, yes. It'll be a week or so behind.

The intention is something running more or less at the same time as the MWS Championship for those who don't qualify.

Player pack is up on the original post!

The player pack describes how round pairings will be determined; each round comes with three maps and teams will assign each of their players to a map. Pairings will be revealed at the start of each round.

We are also going to require that players in a team each declare a different master within each round. E.g., if a team has a Bayou player and a Neverborn player and Neverborn declares Zoraida in Round 1, Bayou cannot declare Zoraida that round.

Players can solo a master each round if they want.

But, in the case of dual faction masters, only one player per team can declare each master each round. So if your team has EXP and TT players, can't both declare McCabe in the same round.
