Timezone help:


1) Sign up on the Challonge sign-up page if you're sure you can participate.(You can wait until the time above if you're unsure, best to do this to keeps bye's to a minimum)

Totally excited for this, I was beginning to wonder when the next one would be. Also, I look forward to maybe playing against you moz! :P

@Thule: Thought it was time to show everyone how it was done...we'll see if I make it out of the gates.

Sweet, this is happening right in the middle of my finals week and i will probably need some way to blow off some steam! Hopefully i dont go out in the first round cause that doesnt seem like a good way to blow off steam at all

edit: my 4gate has been perfected, prepare to be eliminated!
#8 Posted by TheCableKid (242 posts) -

Super pumped, missed the last one cause of work but this one I am definitely in for.

I might try this to see how my Terran is coming  and to put all other Terrans to shame :P ..... Well they will probably be in disgust of how I do. I might go Protoss in my loser bracket round but starting as Terran to get some diversity from all the Protoss  :D

Hey, this time I can actually play in it! I recently switched to Zerg so I'm gonna have to practice a lot for this; I'm pretty pumped even though I'm probably going to go out in the first round.

#11 Posted by wchigo (588 posts) -

Err... I will hopefully be able to make this. But this will be taking place post-move for me, so I'm not sure if I'll be up at that time of day, or will have a strong enough rig to run the game. =x

i'd seriously consider buying an US version of sc2 for this and other events since it's only 40$ (28€) on atm... but i has no credit card :(

#13 Edited by imsh_pl (3447 posts) -

I'd join, if I had an NA account.


#14 Posted by Moztacular (524 posts) -
@Hennet_sim: based on last tournament, we didn't have many terrans towards the end so go terran! I'll be repping zerg like a baller don't worry

#21 Posted by Grimluck343 (1176 posts) -

Hopefully I can make this, I've always wanted to shame myself in this tournament!

#22 Posted by harris (841 posts) -

I will try my hardest to participate in and help organize this tournament.  Unfortunately it'll be right in the middle of my exams, so Moztacular has taken over the primary organizer role. Big thanks to him for that!

Been really looking forward to this and staying on top of my game. A random WILL win a tournament(unless it's already happened somewhere)

It's cool.  But if you could, please please unpin GSL March since that tournament's been over.  We've been keeping GSL May towards the top of the forum, so that doesn't necessarily need a pin.

I'm in, hopefully nothing comes up to keep me from this.

#34 Edited by Obsidian (347 posts) -

I've mostly been playing team games lately (can't believe it placed me in silver 2v2 and 4v4 -.-) because I want to be at least platinum in every league, but I'd like to participate in this tournament. Hopefully I can take a game or two.

What leagues are the people that usually compete in these things?
