Athena Championship Rules

For bugged interactions, talents and banned skins and mounts we will use the same rules at the main Heroes Lounge season.

Similarly map bans and picks will be done the same as the main Heroes Lounge season, including the map pool.


Integrity of the Competition

When signing up for the competition all players were asked to agree to a set standing of honesty to agree that this was an event exclusive to those who identify as women.

For our second instalment of the Athena Championship, we would like to extend our rules on coaching in this event.

Women coaches are allowed to give vocal coaching until the end of the loading screen after the draft, however if a coach is not a woman and communication should stop as soon as the “Start game” button in the lobby is clicked.

We understand several teams have men as coaches, but to remain true to the goal of the event, we want to highlight the option for women to be coaches in esports.

If you feel the integrity of the competition has been broken by any team at any point, please notify Transparent or TinyOwl on Discord.

It is the event organiser’s role to decide if the integrity of the competition has been broken at any point. Their decision on if it has been broken and the severity of the punishment is final.


Format of the Tournament

Titan Division

The Titan Division will be a double elimination format played with all Best of 3s.

Starting at 13:00 CEST, both first round matches will take place simultaneously.

This is followed by both the Upper Bracket final, and Lower bracket semi-final to happen simultaneously and instantly.

This will be followed by a short break,

Then we continue with the lower bracket final and our Grand Final

Olympian Division

The Olympian Division will remain a Swiss League. Over 3 games. There will be a short break available after Game 2.

With the split of the divisions, we hope this will increase the match quality from game 1.

Currently we have an odd number of teams, we are looking to fill an extra team. Otherwise, there will be BYEs awarded.
