July 13 Friday Night Livestream Tournament With $10 Steam Raffle

#1 Edited by Moztacular (468 posts) -

We had some fun last week so we are back bigger and better this Friday with another mini-SC2 tournament. A $10 steam game purchase will be raffled off, just in time for the steam sale that (God damn better) start soon. Check back here for the livestream on Friday night, details below:

 
WHAT: A king of the hill tournament is a simple winner stays style where you play an opponent 1v1 and if you win you play another person. A friend and I will be casting and streaming the matches. 

WHEN:  Friday July 13th starting at 9:00pm EST. Late comers welcome there isn't a deadline to "signup." We will play for several hours or until I run out of players, so don't be afraid to check in late if you can't make it right at 9:00pm.
 
WHO CAN PLAY: Anyone is welcome to play, I won't be filtering out players in low leagues, though you can expect that if higher level players emerge it will be very difficult to beat them if you are a low league. You're still welcome to play and you'd probably enjoy watching on the stream. 
 
WHERE: North America server-Head to the channel 'giantbomb' in SC2 around 9:00pm EST or when you are ready to play. I (moztacular) will be there so send me a message that you want to play. I will add you to the first come first serve list of players. 
 
THE PRIZE: A $10.00 steam purchase will be raffled off at the end of the night. If you play a match you are eligible for the prize. You do not have to win or be present at the time of the drawing, but you must play at least one match to be eligible for the raffle. If there are not enough players to warrant an effective king of the hill tournament I reserve the right to keep the $10 steam purchase for a later date when we have more players.Thank you.
 
THE STREAM (it will go live at the time of the tournament):   

  
 
Hope to see you there.
Thanks,
Moz

glad to see some folks are planning on playing with us tomorrow night! I'm sure everyone is doing what I'm doing right now and browsing the steam sale for stuff, just thought I'd remind everyone that all players are entered into the raffle for a $10 game :)

I'll be there!

I'll probably watch the stream once it's done. 9pm EST is like 4 in the morning here, so I'm going to pass on joining in.

I made this for Shibb in order to make it more challenging for him to win.

The Shibbxyz handicap generator.

Before the start of a game roll a six-sided die:

1) Shibb cannot use his keyboard and must play with the mouse only.

2) Shibb must turn his monitor upside-down.

3) Shibb cannot make any unit besides Drones, Queens and Overlords.

4) Shibb can only place buildings if he makes up a haiku about said building and types out the haiku in chat.

5) Shibb must run up and down a flight of stairs every 4 minutes of game-time. If Shibb's house does not contain stairs, he must run toward his front door, touch it, and run back.

6) Shibb is only allowed to press the 'd' button on his keyboard with the tip of his nose. He is also only allowed to touch the 1-9 keys with his cock.

Another bump to catch some more folk's attentions. I encourage everyone who is still interested in SC2 come and play so we can have a nice turnout!
 
We'll be live in about 4 and a half hours at 9:00pm EST

I'll be tabbed out in the Giantbomb channel if anyone wants to warm up before this gets underway. Just send me a message so it blinks. (I also kind of wanted a reason to post and maybe catch some last minute people)
