Will ratings be taken at rate at time of sign up or at close of deadline?

Seeding / Spot in the tournament
All players that sign up for the tournament will be given a tournament rating using a combination of their current and highest achieved 1v1 RM rating the moment the sign ups close. Therefore it's essential to sign up with not only your best known but also highest rated 1v1 account.

this is why aoc needs more 1v1 arabia tournaments. It forces experts to stay active on the ladder instead of camping some 2k rating its really nice.

Some interesting looking matchups that may already happen very early based on current brackets. Hype!

How about 64 Players? Deadline isn't closed and some strong player are out of seeding. And many Brazilian didn't even sign up

I disagree. 32 player is more than enough. If you want to play in a top tier tournament then you need to get your rating up if your old expert or practice more if you don't meet requirements. It forces people to stop camping their rates

Exactly. Allowing more playing discourages the activity on the 1v1 ladder. Hyped for this tournament! So cool to see so many top players facing each other in the early stages already. Gl to all!

it's actually a very good idea, that no other tournament did.
Make the number of spots limited, based on rating, but give plenty of time for people to up their rating. Brings a shitload of activity and games, without the need to moderate a bigger tournament, painful scheduling for both admins and players etc.
Also players who make the top, probably spent a lot of time practicing up front, so higher level of games in the actual tournaments, less AW etc.
Swissboy is an innovator like always!!
