Wrex won the tournament, congratulations Wrex!

Hall of Fame:

List of previous EU tournament champions:

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:

Map pool:

  • - Cloud Kingdom LE
  • - Antiga Shipyard
  • - Entombed Valley
  • - Metalopolis
  • - Shakuras Plateau
  • - Tal'Darim Altar LE
  • - The Shattered Temple

Still deciding on a map pool, will have something here soon.

+ 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.

The Official sign-ups are done on the day of the tournament itself. Simply replying in this thread that you want to participate is not enough, you have to sign up on the day of the tournament with your Challonge account.

I´m also making it a requirement this time for everyone to sign up using their own Challonge account. The advantage of this is that you´ll be able to report the outcome of your matches yourself, rather than waiting for me to update the brackets.

You can sign up for a free Challonge account here:

http://challonge.com/

You also need anEU Battle.net accountin order to participate.

When:

The tournament is going to start on Sunday February 19th, 19:30 Central European Time. (CET)

If you're unsure about the time check here: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/europe/european-union/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.

Participants:

Thule - Thule #725

EthanML - Squall #512

Jazz2 - Wrex #397

Vajngi - Vajngi #964

Haffy - haffy #498

Elbon - Elbonbunny #474

I think Saturdays the best time for Thule, not completely sure just thought I seen him say that somewhere.

#23 Edited by Thule (737 posts) -

Saturday night used to be my only option for hosting(due to working on a Saturday and having to go up early on Mondays). However, that's not really a problem anymore, considering I don't work on Saturdays anymore. I just kept hosting them on Saturday night because I was used to it.

If most of you guys are okay with it, I could delay the tournament until tomorrow afternoon/night, depending on your preference.

edit:

Okay, I think I'm just going to host the tournament on Sunday(tomorrow) anyway, because alot of people are working/busy this Saturday.

I'm currently thinking tomorrow 13:00 CET or 19:30 CET. Please tell me what you prefer.

Ok, thanks for playing everyone! It's good to see that we've still got a decently sized group who show up for tournaments.

About the finals: Haffy was offline, so I could've awarded Wrex the win, however he declined. So I'm gonna give Haffy a chance to win the tournament tomorrow, same place, same time. (Feb 20th, 19:30 CET)

If he's unable to play or doesn't show then I'll give Wrex the win whether he likes it or not. :)
