Hall of Fame:

List of previous EU tournament champions:

Rules:

- 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.

Maps:

Map pool:

  • Cloud Kingdom LE
  • Korhal compund LE
  • Antiga shipyard
  • Entombed Valley
  • Metalopolis
  • Shakuras Plateau
  • Tal Darim Altar
  • Daybreak LE
  • Metropolis LE
  • Ohana LE

+ 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.

The Official sign-ups are done on the day of the tournament itself. Simply replying in this thread that you want to participate is not enough, you have to sign up on the day of the tournament with your Challonge account.

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:

http://challonge.com/

You also need an EU Battle.net account in order to participate.

When:

The tournament is going to start on Saturday June 30th, 19:30 Central European Time. (CET)

If you're unsure about the time check here: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/europe/european-union/central-european-time/

Sign-ups will be open until 19:30 CET, 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.

Bumping this for those who may have missed it. I won't be able to participate because I'm on the NA server, but I'd still enjoy observing this.

Good luck duder ! I remember a while back looking at a liquidpedia bracket for some UK tournament Grubby played in and saw you took a game off him, I think. I was like, I recognized that name from Giantbomb !

Last time was a ton of fun (even though I hadn't played in 6 months and got annihilated). I'll try to make it!

Edit: I'm a dumb ass and missed the EU. Ah well, hopefully there's a stream or something.

Too bad the EU GB scene has become so small, but I'm sure alot of people will pick it back up once the expansion hits(myself included).

You guys might get some good games out if it though and once you're done, you can watch Shibbxyz win UK Nationals. ^^
