Ok guys - sorry for the haste on this, but I need to head off to sleep and I'm looking to try to get a practice tourney going ASAP. The tourney will happen THIS WEEK on Sunday at 12PM EST (2/6/2011) - (a more friendly time for many folks in different time zones).
Here are the quick tourney rules (side note - its a practice tourney, so I am setting all of the rules):
- This is an all welcome tournament - play for fun.
- The tourney will be 2v2
- 1 player may choose any DG they want. The other player MUST choose either sedna/QoT/da/reg. DOUBLES ARE ALLOWED.
- Single elimination (you lose once and you are out)
- We will use brackets (whoever is at the top of the auto generated bracket will be on light side - whoever is on the bottom is on dark)
- Light side must pick their dg's and ready up 1st (this rule is kind of crap, but we are using it for this tourney)
- Map is cataract using default settings
- All players must use uberfix 1.03 (you can download from here: http://www.box.net/shared/qf7lhj1zjl)
- 1 player from the winning team MUST upload the replay
- ALL PLAYERS MUST REGISTER USING www.JeeLounge.com - you CANNOT participate if you do not create an account here (other details below)
- You must be available when the tourney starts (Sunday NOON EST - I will let you folks know ASAP)
Here are some more details about the whole JeeLounge deal. We have a guy that's been in the community for some time and is a solid player (IamKira). He indicated in another thread and to me privately that he is tied to a site that could GREATLY simplify organizing tournaments, etc, for us. As getting tourney's successfully completed has been a huge pain for us in the past, I'm all ears for new ideas. Anyway, I checked out his site and I think this will be excellent for the community. So, this test tournament is primarily to try out the new system and see if things work well for us. If so, then we'll be using JeeLounge going forward for all community tournaments (and the next few tournaments will all carry a decent cash prize (and future ones will likely be sponsored by stardock). So, here's what you need to do if you want to participate.
You will not need to repeat the jeelounge steps again for future tournaments once you have registered.
And last, I can auto-assign teams if needed. I could put everyone that registers into a team. So, please follow the steps if you want to participate. I'd appreciate everyone making an effort to register so we can test this new system out quickly and get on with planning some cash prize tournaments. Reply here if you have questions and to tell us if you have formed a team (again, you MUST register on the site AND tell me that you already formed a team.)
Here are the registered teams:
- darkliath/insidious intent
Pitch in and help out - I hope many of you can join us in the practice tournament and just play for fun! We can play for pride/butt whopping in the next one. For now, I'd really appreciate anyone that is willing to register and help us test this out. Thanks!
