Welcome to the fifth Giantbomb EU community Starcraft II tournament!
Last time we had a false start, but I'm back and this time we won't have any problems or scheduling errors. (I hope)
This tournament is open to players of all skill levels and you're welcome to come spectate even if you're not participating.
Let's get started!
1.) Sign up here using your Battle.net ID(i.e. Name#123)
2.) Join the ingame chat channel 'giantbomb'. Remember the tournament starts at 19:30 CET, so you might want to be there 5 minutes early, though it's not a big problem if you're delayed.
3) If you're not playing/participating, you can watch Jappernaut's stream here:
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:- All current 1v1 Ladder maps will be in the map pool.
- Delta Quadrant
- Shakuras Plateau
- Steppes of War
- Scrap Station
- Blistering Sands
- Xel'naga Caverns
- Jungle Basin (Isn't in the map pool anymore, but I need an uneven amount of maps for the elimination method to be fair.)
- 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.
When:The tournament is going to start on Saturday February 12th, 19:30 Central European Time.
Sign-ups will be open until 19:30 CET, 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.
