All games of round 1 in our 1 vs 1 tournament have been played. Well done to all who competed and congratulations to the 8 contenders who managed to get in round 2!
After 8 games in round 1 we have decided to make some minor adjustments to the rules and restrictions in order to make the games more active and attractive to watch. The changes are presented below:
Each player has 1 hero ban!
Each contender can select 1 hero to ban. An opponent can’t select that hero during the game. Sadly the draft doesn’t work in a 1 vs 1 so just before the game the ban must be communicated to the referee/streamer (just wait until he asks).
The turret restriction is changed from 2 turrets to 1!
In order to make the game more dynamic and change the speed of games we have decided that the turret rule will be reduced from 2 to 1. This means that only the first turret can’t be attacked directly and has to go down by minions. It is still NOT allowed for a contender to directly attack a turret with his/her hero. Please be careful when selecting heroes with AoE attacks! As soon as minions destroy 1 of the turrets the restriction is dropped and both heroes are allowed to directly attack the opponents turrets.
