Hall of Fame:

US Giant Bomb Community Tournament winners:


- 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(Losers's bracket and Winner's bracket) 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 pool:

  • Antiga Shipyard
  • Daybreak
  • Shakuras Plateau
  • Shattered Temple
  • Tal’Darim Altar
  • Terminus SE
  • Entombed Valley

+ 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:

\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/ READ THIS \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

Official sign-ups will be done via the Challonge website on the day of the tournament itself. This is done to eliminate people who sign up a week ahead of time and then never show up. You'll have the ability to sign up officially until the starting time of the tournament(listed below). You will need a Challonge account to sign up. (also below)


Sign up page is Live

If you want to join, please post your desire to do so in this thread, it'll get me some idea of how many people I should be expecting.

You also need anUS accountin order to participate. (Or a time pass in case you're from Europe and don't have a US account) “I have some guest passes available as does other members of the forums”

I´m also making it a requirement 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.

When:The tournament is going to start on Sunday April 29th, 12:30PM CST(Central US), 1:30PM EST(East Coast US), 10:30AM PST(Pacific Coast US),7:30:00 PM CEST (Central European Summer Time), 17:30:00 GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)

If you're not sure about the timezones, check here. (Also let me know if I made a mistake)

Sign-ups will be open until 12:30PM CST / 1:30PM EST / 10:30AM PST /7:30:00 PM CEST / 17:30:00 GMT. This means you should arrive/sign up before those times, otherwise you won't be included in the bracket and won't be able to participate. Signing up will only take a minute, but don't be late, because if you don't sign up, you cannot participate.

I'll post the sign-up page 1 week before the tournament. Bracket will be posted after sign-ups are closed.

Remember to join the 'giantbomb' channel on to meet everyone and find your opponent(s) quickly.

#32 Posted by gerp (244 posts) -

I'm signed up, but will probably be terrible.

#33 Posted by Hennet_sim (351 posts) -

@gerp: There are people from all skill levels in this so it shouldn't be that bad.

#34 Posted by Shibbxyz (289 posts) -

Maybe I Join tourny what time is it on for me in Uk? I have NA account I can use :D

#35 Posted by Hennet_sim (351 posts) -

I think the time for UK is 17:30:00 GMT

#36 Posted by NaDannMaGoGo (338 posts) -

Ahh too bad, US. Don't have a second Sc2 Account.

But perhaps I can join one of the EU ones.

#37 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19824 posts) -

@NaDannMaGoGo: You can still ask for a guest pass; some people probably still have some. I do for anyone who needs one.

#38 Posted by llamaegg (232 posts) -

Bah, totally working while the game goes on, people could have spectated my terrible lack of skills!

Nah I'll be fine, I am not used to playing with bigger delay anyways, so that wouldn't be too enjoyable for me I suppose.

#40 Posted by Hennet_sim (351 posts) -

You know it would be fun come on :D

#41 Posted by NaDannMaGoGo (338 posts) -

Maybe you're right ;O

Well how would I have to do it again with an US account? I just remembered I still have a Guest Pass of my own.

Should I create a new BNet account and attach it to that? Guess that would be the easiest thing to do.

#42 Posted by Hennet_sim (351 posts) -

Good lots of people have signed up this is going to be a fun tournament :D dare I say the great tournament ever. Still time to sign up.

#43 Posted by NaDannMaGoGo (338 posts) -

Gotta ask once again, do I have to create a new BNet account to get an American Sc2 version via Guest Pass working or can I do that on my normal account too?

#44 Posted by Slag (5776 posts) -

dammit want to play so bad, but can't make the time.

Gl HB to all.

I think you have to make a new account, not sure about this.

#45 Posted by NaDannMaGoGo (338 posts) -

Aye, well now I gotta install that client too though right? Urgh, so much work!

I need to search how I can have to installs at the same time.

#46 Posted by Anupsis (330 posts) -

I'm up for it. Been awhile since I've played but it should be fun.


#47 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19824 posts) -

Happening relatively soon, folks, don't forget!

#48 Posted by baldgye (771 posts) -

isn't it 6:30pm uk time? :/

and yeah to make an NA account, you'll need to download the NA client and then make a new account on the site... but with two masters level fools.. I can see what the results are gona be :P

#49 Posted by NaDannMaGoGo (338 posts) -

Oh, the BNet account itself has to be us as well? Well I'm out then. Failed to realize I have to make the account on the US BNet. I even wanted to ask if that's necessary but didn't end up doing that.

It's too much of a struggle anyways, I hope Blizzard manages to put in some way, to just change server regions within HotS. I must imagine that's going to be one shitty job is their database wasn't build with that in mind but it's just stupid.

#50 Posted by Hennet_sim (351 posts) -

@NaDannMaGoGo: Ahh sorry to hear but yea the accounts across regions needs to be vastly improved.

@baldgye: Just because there are master level people here should not make you give up but it should make you play the best you ever played.
