- The tournament will be played in a double elimination format. This means you'll have to lose twice in order to be eliminated.
- The semi-final and final matches will be played as a Best-of-3.
- If a player drops from a match, he may request a rematch, assuming the match was relatively even.
- No cheating or use of exploits is allowed.
- Spectating other people's matches is allowed, assuming you don't have to play a match yourself. But please be courteous enough to leave if a player experiences lag due to a large number of spectators.

+ Map to play on will be determined by elimination. Each player will eliminate one map each until only one map remains to play on. (You can also just come to a consensus together on which map you want to play on)
+ In the Best-of-3's in the semi-final and final the loser gets to pick the map after the first game.
How to sign up:
Reply in this thread saying you'd like to enter. Official sign-ups will be at the start of the tournament in order to eliminate no-shows and to keep the number of Bye's to a minimum.
Posting your B.net ID and character code might also be a good idea. This'll allow me and the other participants to add you now, rather than the day of the tournament. This'll save some time and hassle.
You also need an EU Battle.net account in order to participate.
I´m also making it a requirement this time for everyone to sign up using their own Challonge account. The advantage of this is that you´ll be able to report the outcome of your matches yourself, rather than waiting for me to update the brackets.
You can sign up for a free Challonge account here:
The tournament is going to start on Saturday July 30th, 19:30 Central European Summer Time. (CEST)
Sign-ups will be open until 19:30 CEST, so make sure you sign-up in time or you'll be unable to participate.
I'll post the sign-up page on the day of the tournament. Bracket will be posted after sign-ups are closed.
