When are the matches?
The first round will take place this week and determine the four greatest Lords in both the player and Firefly brackets.
Round One (Firefly Staff) – Friday November 20th @ 2:30pm – 4:30pm GMT
Round One (Players) – Sunday November 22nd @ 3pm – 5pm GMT
Each of the first round matches will last a maximum of thirty minutes. If both Lords are still standing after thirty minutes then the Greatest Lord score will determine the winner of the current match.
The brave Round One winners will continue to fight in the quarter finals next week, again with Firefly matches held during the week and player versus player bouts on Sunday November 29th.
Round One matches will take place on the excellent ‘Duel in the Sands’ player-created map, adjusted and rebalanced for use in the tournament. Players will be given 10 minutes of peace time, initial resources set to ‘Medium’ and 1000 Gold.
