So, since DIVEKICK is coming to Steam on August 20th for $9.99, lets have ourselves a Steam side tournament!
The official Divekick tournament can be found here, but since that is PS3/Vita only, I figured I would start a second thread and bracket for people who are only getting the Steam version, or are getting both. I figure that it will run the same time as the real tournament, Friday August 23rd-Sunday August 25th, with finals happening as they come up.
- Tournament will follow a double elimination format, meaning players will have to lose twice to be eliminated.
- Each match will consist of a winner taking 5 rounds. Each round will be 20 seconds each.
- Winner of a set is determined by best of 2 out of 3 matches.
- Losers finals and grand finals will be best of 3 out of 5 matches.
- Character switching is allowed only to the loser of a match in a set, with the winner having to stick with the same character. However, if the loser switches characters, the winner is allowed to switch gems.
- If a player's connection drops during a round, it is up to the opponent to decide if he agrees to do a rematch or not.
How To Sign Up
Just put your Steam username in this thread, and I will add you to the running list. Provided nothing goes screwy, I will post the Challonge! page in this thread on August 22nd, giving plenty of time for players to contact their first matches and start on time.

Alright kiddos! (ignore that). We are just a few days away from the beginning of the Divekick tournaments! Here is a quick update as to what is going on, and what to expect.
On August 20th at 5pm EST, submissions will be closed. I will be compiling to brackets on Challonge! and posting it up by midnight EST. Everyone will need to get in contact with their first round opponents to set up a time to begin.
The tournament itself will begin Friday, August 23rd. Everyone's first rounds should be completed by the end of the day, but of course there will be understanding if that is difficult. The only true deadline is Top 8 MUST be reached by 5pm EST Sunday, August 25th. That way, all territories can participate without too much fear of staying up past their bedtimes to complete the bracket.
Good luck, good training, and DIVEKICK
Its here its here! The day has arrived! Here is the bracket for the tournament starting in a few hours. http://challonge.com/gbDivekickSteam
My apologies to the players who need to have one round before everyone else. I couldn't figure out the correct way for it to Bye correctly, and I am going to keep tweaking it. If I can't fix it, you guys have a bit more of a challenge (but all that much more glory).
Keep me updated throughout the weekend with PMs and posts here in the thread, and I will make sure to update regularly (and by regularly I mean every half-hour).
Update To PMs
Okay! We have some quick changes to make. The first is for all results PM them to both me (@thdemn) and @l1ghtn1n and one of us will update the bracket as soon as we see it. The second is that a few players have been having lobby problems. The solution right now is to pinpoint who is having the problem, and have them drop down to losers bracket. Its a rough solution, I know, but its the best we have right now besides playing online Rock-Paper-Scissors.
