What is the C!X COMMENCE? - The C!X COMMENCE, taking place at the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, is an Officially Branded™ Round-Robin League under the Fire Pro CRITICAL! brand (aka, the Blue Brand) in the vein of NJPW's G1 CLIMAX, with the participants separated into two Blocks -- the Challenger Block and the Free Agent Block.
What does it involve? - It's a Round-Robin League, which means by the end of it, each participant in each Block will have faced everybody else in their block.
At the end, once the Round-Robin section has been completed, the highest scoring wrestler from each Block will face each other in the Finals, with the Winner receiving a CRITICAL! Club World Championship match on January 31st at "CRITICAL! Royale", a Royal Rumble-styled Officially Branded™ FPC! event with Julian Caesaro-inspired arena decor, and the runner-up receiving the final entry slot in the titular C!R Match.
Who qualifies? -
1) Anybody from an FPWAlliance Affiliate and/or the Official Roster Collection who voluntarily signs up!
2) Everybody from the C!C World Championship Division is automatically signed up in the Challenger Block, given that this event has C!C World Championship implications.
3) All of the Free Agents are eligible for automatic sign up as part of their Perpetuity Permission given in the thread! (Handlers may request certain specifics to be announced later. :) )
(NOTE: The number of slots for participants in the Free Agent Block will be determined by how many wrestlers are put into the Challenger Block.)
3) Your edit adheres to the criteria of the Official Roster (200 pts and under, no Cement, and no Cement Logic -- as usual, we're looking for good matches over edits specifically designed to win them).
4) Of course, make sure to link to your edit's Workshop page when you sign them up. :)
5) As usual, Custom edits only, no real life wrestlers (unless you're a wrestler in real life and your edit is you), thanks.
6) If you're manually signing edits up, you can sign up to 3 edits to enter, and your manual sign-ups will be placed in the Challenger Block, even if the edits you're signing up are part of the Free Agents pool, to signify that you've manually chosen to sign up to enter.
How will this work?
1) If you sign up for the Event with an edit who ISN'T part of the FPWA Free Agency, they will be added to the Challenger Block.
2) If there are an uneven amount of wrestlers in the Challenger Block, a Random Selection will be run to move randomly selected participants from the Free Agent Block to the Challenger Block to even things out.
3) The two lowest scoring wrestlers (regardless of Block) will "win" the dubious distinction of being the first two participants in the CRITICAL! Royale match at CRITICAL! Royale on January 31st.
4) As usual, the Event will feature some Championship matches over the course of its running, such as the Finals containing as part of a Double Main Event a CRITICAL! Club World Championship match between C!C World Champion NorthStarLion and Women's Hoss Madness Winner Oshiro (as per her request).
5) In the event that NorthStarLion, the current C!C World Champion, wins the C!X COMMENCE, he will be allowed to CHOOSE his opponent at CRITICAL! Royale, should he successfully defend the C!C World Championship against Oshiro at the C!X COMMENCE Finals show.
More info will be provided as the show approaches and as questions get answered. :)
Matches that aren't part of the League itself will also be announced by August 30th.
Sign-ups for edits not already booked for the League will take place from now through August 30th, with recording of the League itself to commence sometime during the week of August 31st-September 7th.
