This edition of the tour will be a little different from the past tours. Main difference here being that the primary purpose of this tour is for coaches to be able to assess players when considering team selection to help promote a league with a more even initial skill distribution.
CPL Players are REQUIRED to participate. If you absolutely cannot play, you must inform me. Failure to do so will disqualify you from CPL.
Max Rank of C- is allowed. In case of seemingly strong players without ladder results they will be evaluated by a committee consisting of myself, and several others (TBA). It's subjective, but that's the best we can do
It hasn't been an issue in the past but I want to be abundantly clear. If you have been C/B/A++ at any point, do NOT post your max rank as D+ xxxx pts. This applies to any account. If you've been 5000 pts on one account, but only 2700 on another your max rank must be posted as 5000.
Failure to read and follow this properly will result in tournament inelgibility
