Cryptic wins!



With last month's tournament (which went extremely well!) just a week behind us, we're ready to announce the next tournament! As always, the tournament is open to all skill levels, so we encourage everyone to participate. You can always just drop by to watch the stream, too. The tournament will be in double elimination format. 

Important Info

The tournament will be at 1:30PM CST (2:30PM EST, 11:30AM PST) on Saturday, February 19th. At that time, check back here for specific instructions. It's important that you check back here when these instructions are posted, or you may be disqualified. Be sure to read below for instructions on signing up.
Sadly, you must have a account that is capable of playing with US accounts in order to participate. Check out the EU Tournament if you're not eligible for this one.

2st Round: Scrap Station
3nd Round: Steppes of War
4rd Round: Metalopolis

You can watch the tournament here when the tournament is live. 


The prizes are as follows: 
First place: $10 steam game 
Second place: $5 steam game 
While we do not anticipate it, these prizes are subject to change.

How to Enter

To entry, simply post below saying you'd like to enter. We will be collecting your SC2 name and character code at the beginning of the tournament, so it is vital that you check back on this post when the tournament is beginning. 
Sign-ups will remain open until the tournament begins.  
Thanks, we look forward to seeing you at the tournament!

@wchigo: Hey, you did better than me last time! I'm sure you'll do fine - or at very least above the "make a fool out of yourself" level.

I'm in!

#11 Posted by harris (848 posts) -
@LordXavierBritish: You'd likely pick up a lot from watching the stream - and hey, you could get pretty decent in 2 weeks time! In the worst case scenario, you'll lose twice and have some good replays to analyze.

Bwargh I may have to miss this one as my girlfriend's mom will be staying with us that weekend... BWARGH!!!

#18 Posted by Thrawn1 (1340 posts) -

do you think the time/date for these will ever change? 

#19 Posted by harris (848 posts) -
@Thrawn: The times/dates are usually based on when the organizers/streamers are available, so they usually end up being about the same.

@Wunder_: Are you gonna be able to make it while you're in Australia?
#27 Posted by Wunder_ (1171 posts) -
@harris: Depends if I'm in my dorm yet or not - if I'm still on mobile internet I can still probably cast.

Sure thing. I'll make some people feel good by donating a couple of wins.  =)

I may be a mere bronze leaguer, but I shall use this as a learning experience (as in, "How to get your ass kicked in five minutes and still retain your dignity!").

I'd like to enter as well(low bronze league level player who got misplaced into gold league and has no time to practice). I'll hopefully be able to get some practice in before this tournament though.

#46 Edited by Arkanti (256 posts) -

 Lol, I managed to disable my NAT completely on my router without knowing what that would do exactly. It turns out it makes the router pretty much useless! Couldn't connect to it through Lan or Wireless to access its controls to turn NAT back on again, so I had to hard restart it losing my internet config. And then I realised that I'd lost some of my net info like the VPI/VCI settings, luckily I managed to get on to phone tech support from my IP even though it's like midnight here to find that shit out again.
Man I can't believe I made it so close to not getting to play again due to further internet related retardation (although admittedly the fault would have been laid squarely upon myself this time.)\
Edit: Arkanti #899
Do we really need to enrol in this thread? Normally we're just asked to sign up on the ladder page anyways.
Holy shit this is on next week bahaha. I stayed up for this. Oh well, see you guys next Sunday(Or Saturday if you live in crazy world).
