feRfe's custom patch project for Warcraft III is finally ready for release along with accompanying tournaments throughout the week!
feRfe, a long time Warcraft III human player and WCG Grand Finals Competitor, has been working on a new project called WC3F which is a custom patch that changes many things in Warcraft III to make it more dynamic and interesting! He will be hosting a multi-day WC3F tournament series over the next week on W3Arena. Make sure to test it out yourself with friends! You can find links to a video introduction (although this will contain some outdated patch information; most notably, vetoes have been removed) and the up-to-date patch notes below.

Patch Notes: http://pastebin.com/5Zbb5N5a
Official Streams: http://www.twitch.tv/imaginelimits
Format: Single elimination, Bo1 until semifinals; semifinals & finals bo3
All rounds before the semifinals play Winterspring Valley. Semifinals and finals follow the map order above.
Sign ups: You must sign up with the same account name as the w3a account you will use to play the tournament.
Check in: Check-in begins 30 minutes before the tournament starts.
Replays: Winners must upload their replays after each round to http://tft.w3arena.net/replays to advance. Do it before you report your result, as an admin will check to make sure that it is up before he advances you.
AFK: AFKing for more than 15 minutes after a match without notifying an admin first will result in a forfeit. You must provide a reason and an ETA as to when you will be back.
Disconnects: Re-game if neither player has been scouted yet; otherwise, post the replay for an admin to review in case of disagreement.
In the first couple rounds, games hosted will not be match specific; the pair of opponents who joins and is ready first will be allowed to play.
For any match, refusing to play on the bot chosen by the admin will result in a forfeit.
An admin may make one of the players in a match the game owner so he can start his own game. In that case, these are the commands you can use.
In-game bot commands: to start the game, type !start; to ping, type !ping. make sure to "spoof check" (whisper the bot with "sc") or else you will not be able to use commands after joining the game.
Here is the schedule:
Admins: feRfe (a.cute.girl@w3arena)
Bots: IHArena_SEA1 (USWest), IHArena_USe1 (USEast), IHArena_FRA1 (Europe)
Wednesday-Friday: $5 tourneys @ 18:30 CET check in, 19:00 CET start
