Let's get started!
1. Go here and submit your SC2 name and code in the following format: Name_Code (e.g. Harris_788). No need to register a challonge account or anything, just click 'sign up for this tournament without a Challonge account.' This will enter you in the bracket.
2. Go here, connect to chat using your SC2 name and code in the same format as above (Harris_788). Find your next opponent on the bracket below the chat and set up a game with them on the appropriate map. The map to play for each round will be listed here.
3. After your game, upload your replay here and report the winner in chat. In order for your win to be registered, you must report it. Go to step 2.
IntroAfter an excellent first post-release tournament, with staff participation and great community coverage, we're ready to hold our fourth somewhat-monthly Giant Bomb Community StarCraft II Tournament! The tournament is open to all skill levels. Feel free to drop by just to spectate matches, too. We're trying out a new system to run the tournament this time, so things should run a lot smoother and with far less delays.
Important InformationThe tournament will take place on Saturday, October 2 at 1:30PM CDT (2:30PM EDT, 11:30AM PDT). At that time, specific instructions will be posted here. Please note that these instructions will be quite different from previous tournaments, so be sure to check back here when they are posted. If you're late, you may be disqualified. We may continue at a later date if we cannot finish all matches on the first day.
Unfortunately, you must have a battle.net account that is able to play with US accounts in order to participate.
DetailsFurther details will be posted here later on.
Help us outWe're looking for a person or two to stream/commentate matches as they go on, and/or upload commentated replays later on. If you'd like to help us with any of this, please say so in a reply or PM. Thanks.
How to enterSimply reply below saying you'd like to enter. This time we'll be collecting your SC2 name and character code and assembling the bracket at the start of the tournament, instead of collecting the information as you sign up.
Sign-ups will remain open until the start of the tournament.
