Rigged Wiki:News/Autumn 2021 Team List, New Dates, Rules, and Format
Sign-ups for the 2021 4chan Autumn Babby Cup have closed. 40 teams have been accepted for participation which are as follows:
/a/, /aco/, /adv/, /an/, /b/, /bant/, /c/, /ck/, /f/, /fa/, /fit/, /h/, /jp/, /k/, /lit/, /mlp/, /p/, /pol/, /pw/, /r9k/, /s4s/, /sci/, /sp/, /tg/, /toy/, /tv/, /u/, /v/, /vm/, /vp/, /vr/, /vrpg/, /vst/, /vt/, /w/, /wsg/, /x/, /xs/, /y/
Because 40 teams have been approved for participation, the Autumn Babby Cup will be conducted in a Megababby format consisting of eight groups of five teams. The Cup will take place over a period of four weeks with eight games per day, the final day of the Group Stage for Groups E-H being done on the Friday of the typical Knockouts weekend. Here is a diagram.
Because of the new format and the exclusion of a Qualifiers round, dates will now be as follows:
Aesthetics Export Deadline: October 15th, 23:59:59 UTC
Tactical Export Deadline: October 16th, 23:59:59 UTC
Draw: October 17th
First Weekend: October 22-24
Second Weekend: October 29-31
Third Weekend: November 5-7
Last Day of Groups + Knockout Draw: November 12
Knockouts: November 13-14
Autumn will be played on PES 2021 and have the following rule changes:
- Green Height Bracket
- The stat reduction for medals set to 199cm in height will be increased. Golds will now receive a -6 stat reduction (all stats set to 93), and Silver players will now receive a -3 stat reduction (all stats set to 85).
- Copy Preset Tactics, Change Formation at Kick-off
- The Copy Preset Tactics function will no longer be allowed as a pre-match instruction. You may still use the instruction as part of a timeout during a match.
- Additionally, using the Change Formation function to copy one fluid formation to another within the same preset as a pre-match instruction is also no longer allowed. For example, asking duing pre-match to copy the When-out-of-possession formation onto the Kick-off formation with the intent to turn off Fluid Formation would be denied.
Additionally, day one nightlies will NOT be used in this Cup. Deadline exports will be used for a team's first match as per usual.
