Giant Bomb Community SC2 EU Tournament #9, June 25th!

#1 Edited by Thule (692 posts) -

Welcome to the ninth Giantbomb EU community Starcraft II tournament!

This tournament is open to players of all skill levels and you're welcome to come spectate even if you're not participating.

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:

- Typhon Peaks
- Shattered Temple
- Shakuras Plateau
- Metalopolis
- Xel'Naga Caverns.
- Tal'Darim Altar LE
- Terminus RE

+ 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:

http://challonge.com/

When:

The tournament is going to start on Saturday May 25th, 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.

Good to see these still going strong! Hopefully I, or perhaps someone else, will get around to organizing another NA one in the near future.

Yeah, that'd be cool. I wouldn't mind hosting a tournament on the US server, but I'm probably not gonna make a habit out of it.

With a grand total of 3 sign-ups so far(including myself), it's not really looking good. Maybe I miscalculated and many people are on vacation? Or maybe they just quit playing? Hopefully some more people will join in.

If it's been updated and you can actually add more than 4 people to the game lobby then yes, otherwise it'll just be regular Metalopolis.

God damn it! Going on vacation on the 24th. Hope you guys record this, I'd definitely be interested in watching the replays once the dust has settled.

Count me in for the next one, mind. Good luck, guys, and have fun.

Don't know if i'm going to be streaming tonight, because my internet is really tripping. It's be great if we could have a skype call with everyone in it again, so chatting in between games is a little easier. :)

I would love to watch the tourney streamed though I've no doubt the logistics of that would be painful.
