Winterfest 2006 Tournament

From GuildWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Winterfest 2006 Tournament was a seasonal tournament event during Wintersday 2006 sponsored by ArenaNet. Guilds participated by playing GvG-Battles culminating in a Guild Wars Nightfall only swiss system tournament that offered guilds a chance to win wintergreen candy cane weapons and other in-game prizes.

To some degree, the Winterfest 2006 Tournament served as beta test for the future structure of official sanctioned tournaments.

Format[edit | edit source]

The Winterfest 2006 Ladder Season started on October 28, 2006, with a reset of the guild ladder; all guilds started with a rating of 1000. During six weeks leading up to the season ending playoffs, guilds competed against randomly paired (but weighted based upon ratings) guilds in single-game match play. The ladder season ended on December 11, 2006.

During the season ending playoffs on December 16th, 2006, the top 32 eligible rated guilds competed in a Guild Wars Nightfall only five-round single-game swiss system tournament. The 1st round pairings was seeded by the final tournament ladder rating. Matches consisted of one battle on a set map.

After the fifth round of the swiss system tournament, the top eight guilds (based upon win loss results and opponent's match-win percentage as the tie-breaker) met in a single elimination tournament taking place December 17, 2006. Matches in the Winterfest 2006 play-offs were decided by winning 2-out-of-3-games with the higher seeded team having home-field advantage in the first game.
