With the upcoming CIG, it is of course time for another small man vs machine competition. This time it is going to be a team melee (aka Archon mode in StarCraft 2), since it would be interesting to see what human players would do with more apm.
The format is going to be a Bo1 double elimination bracket with a Bo3 finals (no winner bracket advantage). Human players can sign up in teams of at most 2 players, with both players playing the same race. If you want you can sign up as an individual player (and get double the price money).
Bots can sign up only individually. Since team melee replays don't work (and bots aren't that great yet), whenever a bot is playing vs human player(s) it will instead be a one on one game with the other team member allowed to have vision of his/her team mate and chat with him/her.
Since bots still use 1.16, you should have a copy of it available as well in case team melee 1/18 doesn't work with 1.16 . Against human players you can use 1.18 if you want.
Also, due to the lack of functioning replays. Try to stream your games if possible.
