    2. General Rules
    2.1 Communication and Respect
    The AoE India website (aoe2.in) is the main channel for communication for any updates related to the tournament. Players are advised to familiarize themselves with the website before signing up. Players are expected to be respectful towards their opponents and tournament staff. Any disrespect towards opponents or tournament staff will result in disqualification from the tournament. All decisions taken by admins are final and binding on the players.

    2.2 Scheduling
    Scheduling will take place on the AoE2 India website. Each round will last no more than one week. Players are requested to abide to the time frame of the tournament while scheduling.
    Tournament timeline is as follows:

    13th May – 19th May: Round of 32
    20th May – 26th May: Round of 16
    27th May – 2nd June: Round of 8
    8th/9th June: Semi Finals
    15th/16th June: Grand Final

    Players are requested to actively participate in scheduling in order to keep up with the deadlines. Each round lasts one week, and will start on a Monday. Players are expected to agree on a time to play their games by the following Wednesday. Deadline to play the games will be Sunday 11:59 IST. Please not that no extensions will be given. Admin wins will be strict and any unwillingness to schedule games will be noted for future tournaments conducted by AoE India.

    The first player to post should list their available times (with respect to GMT) on their respective scheduling thread. Players may refer to https://greenwichmeantime.com/time-gadgets/time-zone-converter/ if they are not aware of their time zone. The opponent will then choose the time(s) best suitable for both the players. In case of ambiguity in scheduling, admins will decide a time when the games will have to be played.
    Players are expected to show up at the scheduled time for their games. If players do not turn up within 30 minutes of their scheduled time, opponents may take a screenshot from the world time server and post it to the scheduling thread. Admins will evaluate this and take appropriate action on the same.

    2.3 Recorded Games
    There will be a google drive folder created for recorded games. The link with be shared with the players. The winner of the game is expected to post the recorded game(s) in the respective folder.
    Recorded games should be renamed as follows:
    __vs__Game_.mgz Example: Ro32_AssKickerwa_vs_RogganWololo_Game_2.mgz
    In case of a drop, players may create multiple recorded files, with the name as:
    __vs__Game_-.mgz Example: Ro32_AssKickerwa_vs_RogganWololo_Game_2-1.mgz

    2.4 Drops
    In case of a drop, players must initiate a save and exit and restore the games. If, due to some reason the game is not saved, then players should come to a mutual understanding as to whether they want to restart or want an admin decision on the drop. Admins will then give admin win/loss to the appropriate player(s).

    2.5 Streaming and Spectating
    In case you want to stream your point of view or cast the games, message the admins to get you added to the streamers list.

    For POV streams, players are required to have a 2 minute stream delay, to prevent stream cheating of any kind. POV stream is allowed only if the concerned series is being covered live.

    So far, the official streamers for the event are:
    Wildling_89 (https://twitch.tv/wilding_89)
    Bluewolf (https://twitch.tv/cskbluewolf)
    IND_Jatin (https://twitch.tv/riseofpatience)
    The_Dragonstar (https://twitch.tv/100dragonstar)

    Since it is not possible for all the games to be covered live by the casters, players are requested not to spoil the results until the games are casted. The semi finals and grand final will be covered live. No spectators will be allowed in the game room during the games, apart from tournament staff. Players must make sure that the room is locked with a password.

    2.6 Smurfing and Cheating
    By signing up, players agree to the no-smurfing and no-cheating rules. If caught smurfing or cheating, players will be disqualified from the tournament and blacklisted for future tournaments.

    3. Signing Up and Seeding
    3.1 Tournament Format
    This tournament will include 32 players in a 1v1 single elimination format. Tournament may be extended to 64 players depending on the quality and quantity of signups. The top 32 players will be picked from the signups on the basis of seeding.

    3.2 Signing Up
    Before signing up, players must read the handbook and agree to the rules.
    Players can sign up here
    Admins will verify the respective player profiles. Players will have to play all the games on the most well-known voobly profile.

    3.3 Seeding
    Players will have to have at least 50 games on the voobly RM 1v1 ladder to be seeded. Games on any other voobly ladder, including the old voobly RM ladders, will not be considered. Players will be assigned a “rating” for seeding which will be calculated as follows:

    Rating points = 0.25 * Current ELO (on voobly RM 1v1) + 0.75 * Highest achieved ELO (on Voobly RM 1v1).

    If you have given access of your voobly account that you have signed up with for KoI, or have indulged in point trading a rating penalty will be given to you during seeding. The magnitude of the penalty will be determined by admins.

    Players will then be seeded in descending order of their rating.

    4.1 Game Versions
    Before signing up, players must ensure that they own Age of Empires II HD and all the expansions – Forgotten Empires, African Kingdoms and Rise of Rajas, on steam.

The current latest versions are balance patch 5.8, UserPatch 1.5 Build R7 and WololoKingdoms 5.7.2, respectively. This means that any balance patches released during the tournament will be incorporated in the tournament.

    4.2 Game Mods
    Small Trees, Grid Mod and Short Walls are part of the WololoKingdoms installer and free to use. In addition to this, players may use any graphic mods which affect only their point of view. Tournament admins will not assist players in setting up additional mods.
