For the first time ever, over 750 participants were granted access to the tournament realm. We were able to hold an awesome Time Trials, similar to Blizzard's MDI formatting. Almost 50 teams participated in the recent Time Trials and 8 prevailed! Below are the 8 teams that emerged victorious:
Gromnak Waiting Room (formerly "Abrakeydabra")
Inertia (formerly "Learn to Fly")
Paint for Fem
Account Wide Essences
Depleto Gang Gang

KSM Rules and Regulations
As a quick recap for those who haven't been following, Keystone Masters is a community event. It is not associated with MDI and is considered a separate tournament. Since we are a grass roots tournament, we are able to test different and unique rules and formatting. We've done our best to create an MDI "style" tournament with some added twists based on community interest and feedback. Some examples of these are:
The option to have a 6th player. This allows flexibility in teammates as a backup or to use as a strategic advantage
Limit of one spec per dungeon. Essentially this rule has been implemented to prevent the triple Rogue or double Deathknight comps we've been seeing abused in previous MDIs.
Dungeons and affixes will be known ahead of time to reduce the amount of "work" players have to go through.
...and more! A full list of rules and format updates will be provided ahead of time.
We've also added a fun and unique twist! Introducing...The Coin! Once per tournament, teams now have the option to swap the predetermined map for any map of their choosing that currently exists in the tournament (affixes are static per map). For example: a coin used on Bolstering, Sanguine, Siege of Boralus for a Freehold, will turn into Quaking, Volcanic, Freehold since those are the attached affixes per each dungeon. Teams may use this defensively to avoid practicing a map they hate, or they can use it offensively to try and throw off a different team. This provides a new layer to think about in terms of strategy for the teams and gives the audience a potential new twist!
Of course, it's not a tournament without a prize pool. Winners will receive goodies including Blizzard game time, a 3 month epic subscription to
and a 6 month premium subscription to
! Special thanks to both Raider.io and to Raidbots for sponsoring the event, and to everyone else who helped make this event possible.
