Midori’s Mentournament is a special tournament format designed to take newer inexperienced players and pair them up with mentors to give them a kickstart playing Yomi.
The tournament takes place in three parts
- A 3 week training period from the 11th Nov - 2nd Dec
- A single day Round-Robin bracket on Saturday 2nd Dec 9:00 PM UTC
The 3 week training period is intentionally pretty long to try and make sure people are able to schedule in at least a couple of sessions during that time even if there schedules are rather hectic. So don’t worry if you’ll be busy or away for some of the training period, that’s fine.
- Standard Counterpick (First game is double-blind, after which winner is character-locked and loser can change)
- Medium Timer
- Double KO is a win for both players. If this results in a draw then replay the last MU.
- Hands-off (Can be turned on if both players agree to it)
- Mentors should not give advice while a game is being played
- Players are encouraged to take a 1-2 minute break in-between each game to discuss the game with their mentor
