QuBIT VII @ High Tech [NE STASH mirror] - 3/06/2021

Post by maxryanb »

High Technology High School is pleased to announce our seventh annual Quiz Bowl Invitational Tournament (QuBIT VII), which will take place on Saturday, March 6th, 2021. We'll be mirroring STASH, a nats-level housewrite by Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. This is the official Northeast mirror of STASH, covering all states to the northeast of and including New York and New Jersey. Contact us if you have reason to be excepted from the regional restriction. I, Max Brodsky, will be the Tournament Director of QuBIT VII.

QuBIT VII will be held on Discord using buzzin.live and TJ Electronic Scoresheets with Category Stats. Cameras will be required throughout this tournament and must show both hands of each player. This will be strictly enforced.

We will have an opening meeting at 8:30AM and we're aiming to start at around 9 AM. (Tentative, will be set closer to the date)

Registration
Registration for this tournament will only be accepted through this form, which will be kept open until the end of March 4th. Staff may register here, compensation of $40.

Question Set
We will be mirroring STASH, a nats-level housewrite of difficulty comparable to PACE. Please take this increased difficulty into consideration when signing up, especially if you are a newer team.

Format
The field has a hard cap of 24 teams. Because of this relatively small field size for a large region on a high-level set, we will be prioritizing A-teams for guaranteed spots before B or C-teams, taking into consideration the strengths of teams.

Prelims will consist of four brackets of six teams playing a 5-game round robin. The top two teams in each bracket will move on to two championship brackets with four teams each. The third and fourth place teams in each bracket will move on to Consolation 1A and Consolation 1B with four teams and so on. From there, a 3-game round robin will be played to determine seedings for a final elimination bracket phase. The top two teams from each championship bracket will play a four-team elimination bracket to determine 1st-4th, the bottom two teams playing for 5th-8th. The same will be played for the two pairs of consolation brackets. The format can be seen on this spreadsheet, which will be used and updated live throughout the tournament. 10 games guaranteed for all.

Ties within a bracket will be broken by points per game (PPG). Brackets will be ordered by their top team's points per bonus (PPB) for snake-seeding reasons in the Prelims->Playoffs reseeding.

Fees
$70 for each team. (No more than six players per team; only four players playing at a time; subs only at half)
-$40 per moderator, no limit. (Those who sign up to staff are not guaranteed a spot and will be notified with time before the tournament)

Payment
More to follow

Any team cancelling after 11:59 EST on Monday, March 1st, will be expected to pay full tournament dues.

Misconduct
We are committed to keeping quizbowl a safe place for all participants. Harassment, cheating, and other forms of misconduct will not be tolerated and we reserve the right to remove any player or team. Players will be expected to abide by the PACE Code of Conduct. If you would like to report any misconduct by players, staffers, or others, please contact me or fill out the Misconduct Reporting Form.


If you have any questions about this tournament, reply to this thread or email me at [email protected].

We look forward to seeing you online in March!

QuBIT VII has been designated a platinum NSC qualifier! The top 25% of teams (rounded up to the nearest integer) will qualify for the PACE NSC.
