Welcome to the fourth Giantbomb EU community Starcraft II tournament! 

The last tournament was a small, but successful one, hopefully we'll have some more players than the last time, though. The more, the merrier.
This tournament is open to players of all skill levels and you're welcome to come spectate even if you're not participating.
  

You can sign-up until Saturday 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/wzavi6mrjt 

2. Join the chat here;
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/GBSCEU4


Replays can be sent to GiantbombSC2@gmail.com
I'll compile all the replays and upload the file somewhere, so you can see everyone's games after the tournament is over.
 

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.
- 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 December 11th, 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.
 

Participant list:

Giant Bomb ID - B.net ID + character code

I'll sign, but in skepticism (I might have to go home to see my parents, so apologies a lot if I have to drop because of this, it's better I say it NOW, however)

Would anyone be interested if I were to stream the tournament on livestream and provide some commentaries with some people, or would you prefer to just watch all the games normally? I'd like to know now because if people like the idea I need to go make sure my livestream is working properly.

I would be interested since I will probably be out early, but beware I am 1337!

Hehe, that's cool :P. Well I might as well give it a shot seeing as how i've never casted games before and I'd really like to try it out and try and provide some insight in games for people and entertain them :). I'll try and see if I can figure out Livestream. I've used it before and it worked but I've never had viewers that could give me some feedback on some things to improve, I'll just ask some of my friends to help me with it.
 
Edit: It would also help get the games started faster I think, because you don't have to get 10 people in the lobby :).

@raiz265: Oh come on, WoW will be around for ever. The tournament is only once a month or something.
 
Also just wanted to let everyone know I got my stream to work properly right now, still got some tweaking to do for the video and audio quality. So if people like to hear me and maybe Thule and Glasshopper do some commentaries on the matches I can get everything set up and we can do this :).

From 19:30 onwards yes. You'll need to be there at least a couple minutes before 19:30 though to sign up, but that should only take a minute at most. After 19:30 I'll create the bracket and it's go time.

I think I got my stream to a decent enough quality now, I've been trying out pretty much every streaming service there is and finally settled on livestream. Is there anyone with some mad photoshop skill that can maybe make some sort of banner or wallpaper picture I can use in between games or something, just make it say "Giantbomb SC2 forum tournament EU edition" or something. I've been toying around with the zoom function on procaster and I'm really looking forward to having some fun casting some games :).
If no one can make me a quick picture I'll probably just end up using the batmanbatmanbatman.com picture :P.

@Thule: Ah okay, I was hoping that was just the deadline for entry and the tourney was on Sunday. I guess I can't make it then, going out to a football match in the evening. Maybe next time eh?

Sure, no problem, I'm trying to host one of these tournaments every month, so you'll be able to join us next month. Keep an eye on these forums and you'll see the tournament thread pop up.

That's good news! 
Hopefully you won't be the only one who recovers from his WoWitis, before this December 11th.
 
In other news, we'll most likely will have a stream going in which me and my brother Jappernaut will commentate on the games. We're still working on the quality, but it's looking ok right now.

We've already got Jappernaut's stream going. It runs pretty well and quality is good enough. Though I will use this to try and get my Ustream stream going for next tournament. Thanks!

Also if people want to play some more games tomorrow, whether it's Raynor party or some more 1v1's, just message me on Bnet. I'll probably be online tomorrow.

It's no problem, I don't think it was bm, no one's forcing you to play all your games. I think you could've still had a chance to win though, you beat me in a Bo3 before. 
 
Hope you enjoyed yourself anyway.
