Salvation is a HOTMIX 4on4 draft league. It's been rumored on the QW scene ever since the QHLAN draft 4on4 tourney and now it's finally here. Brought to you by a dynamic admin team and a strict schedule.
The system is a captain based tournament with 10 captains and 10 teams.
Each team will have 5 players, determined by a 'captain's pick' live streamed event in about 1 week. Here captains will fight over the players in the pool to make the best team they can.
Teams are divided into 2 groups of 5 where #1 will move to semifinals, #2 to quarter finals, and wild-card games between 3rd and 4th from each group, fighting each other for the remaining quarter final spots. An interesting concept indeed.
With a tight schedule of Sundays and Mondays (which can be studied in detail here
it should help ensure better coverage and smoother execution. Unfortunately not all players can adhere to these conditions, but it's their hope that there will be enough interest and active players signing up to make this new project a success.Confirmed captains
With 10 teams of 5 players, minus 10 captains they need a minimum of 40 players to fill out the teams. But even if you don't get picked for the draft, left over players are still eligible to be traded into the teams during season if such need should occur (players going idle etc.).
What I'm almost looking most forward to is the live streamed event in about a week where captains will pick their players, gonna be sweet.
So I urge to visit their site for more detailed info, this is gonna be one heck of a tournament!Links:QuakeWorld Draft - Salvation 2012SignupUpdated seed list of signed players and captainsSchedule and timeline.Discuss the format or make suggestions in our forumIRC channel #draft.qw
