Welcome to the third Giantbomb EU community Starcraft II tournament! 

I will be taking over from Milo hosting these tournaments, with his blessing, considering he's busy doing other stuff.
This tournament is open to players of all skill levels and you're welcome to come spectate.
 
 

Let's get this thing started!

 
You can sign-up until 19:30 Central European Time.
http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/europe/european-union/central-european-time/


Sign-ups are open!

1. Sign up here:
http://challonge.com/tournament/signup/2m8rrrwq68

2. Join the chat here; (Use full screen chat, it's linked in the top.)
http://harrism.com/GBSC2/

When joining the chat, you should use the same name you used to sign up.


Here's the link to the bracket:
http://challonge.com/GBSCEU3


Replays can be sent to GiantbombSC2@gmail.com.

I made this e-mail address in order to collect all replays so I can upload them to www.sc2replayed.com. Remember to save your replays with a clear name, something like player A vs player B game X, should be fine.
You can also just upload the replays yourself if you prefer and provide the link in this thread. We used to upload replays on drop.io, but the website has been bought by facebook and is no longer available, unfortunately.

Hope to see you all soon!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
- Both players will get to 'thumb down' 2 maps each, after which a random map will be chosen by me from the 5 remaining maps. Your thumbed down maps will remain the same for the rest of the tournament. Thumbing down maps is optional.
- In the Best-of-3's in the semi-final and final the loser gets to pick the map after the first game. You can't pick maps that either you or your opponent has thumbed down.

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 November 13th, 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.

Streams:

I'm currently looking into setting up a stream myself, but I've never streamed before and I'm not sure whether I can get it going before the tournament starts, but I'll do my best.
Still having one or more additional streamers would be appreciated, considering I'm going to be busy managing everything.

We'll be using Harris' chatroom to organize, which I'll link later on.
 

Participant list:

Giant Bomb ID - B.net ID+ character code
Thule - Thule#725
Haffy - haffy#498
slimziggy - Ziggy#237
imsh_pl - imsh#928
amir90 - Amir#323
Shibbxyz - Shibbxyz#936
barnard_cyryn - cyryn#611
Llama - Llama#170
ZeeQue - ZeeQue#990
Chronologist - Chronologist # 984 

Additional information will follow.

Just posting as a reminder that I haven't forgotten this thread. I'm still trying to get a stream up and running, but it's not easy. I'll keep trying, but I still can't promise anything.
 Hopefully we'll get some more people joining in the tournament, but it's no biggie if it's just the current number. I might change all matches to be a best-of-3 in order to get some more games going though.

Don't worry.
 
Even if we won't have as many people we'll at least play some team games or custom maps after the tournament.

Awesome! We already have 8 people :)
 
Fortunately it's enough to play some 2v2v2v2s and 4v4 if anyone has some spare time or tournament will end earlier than expected.
 
Either way Saturday will be a Starcraft evening :)

Aw, that's too bad. Hopefully you can still hop in later after the tournament for some games. 
 
I'm still tweaking the stream settings. I 've got some more time tomorrow and I 'll hopefully will be able to get it working. However, I can't promise anything, so don't count on it.

Alright, looks like it'll be a small tournament. But I think it'll still be fun. There won't be a stream. I can't figure out how to make the stream not slow my pc to a crawl and how to get sound working properly. Considering I intend to host more than just this tournament, I'm hoping the I'll have the stream running next tournament.
 
If you guys don't mind, I'm changing all matches to be a Best-of-3. We've got a small number of players so it's easy to manage and it'll be a bit more forgiving.  If alot of people don't like this, we'll just run with the regular rules.
 
Central European Time is the time most European countries are running, so if you look at your own clock you should be able to see how long you've got to sign up. For those that live someplace else and don't know for sure, here's a link to the time I'm using to determine when to start the tournament:
  
http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/europe/european-union/central-european-time/  


The sign-up page will go live early Saturday. You can sign up early if you're sure you can come, but if you're not sure, wait until the start of the tournament nears. That way we'll minimize the amount of bye's.

@Llama: I don't know. The chatroom was provided by Harris, the guy who organizes the US tournaments. Maybe he can answer that if he pops in or you could send him a PM to ask.

Ok, thanks to everyone who attended and played some games. I had alot if fun and played some effing intense games.  
We'll play the finals tomorrow, Me vs Haffy. I need to win 2 Bo3's to win the tourney, so I will really have to work for it. Come and observe tomorrow 16:00 CET for some (hopefully) epic ZvZ's.

I'm currently attaching all replays to the Challonge bracket. I've got all my own games and those I observed, but haven't got them all. If you could send them to me at: GiantbombSC2@gmail.com, I'll upload them into the bracket.
You can also just upload them on one of the replay sites and post the link here.
You can download the replays by clicking the paperclip icon next to the match.

Thanks Llama and thanks for playing. I've uploaded all of the replays I've received from everyone. Only games I'm missing are Haffy vs Mole, but i'll ask Haffy for it after we're done playing the finals.
 
Finals are starting in 1 hour and 15 minutes btw, hop onto SC2 and pm me for an invite.  

@Haffy: If you're reading this, just pm me when you're ready to play when you're online on Bnet.
