1)The tourney will be held on
2)Players will be selected on a first come, first
serve basis. In order to qualify you must either be recognized by myself as an
old school br.comer or have posted a report with a
rating higher than 7.0 in their lifetime. This is to make sure the people
playing are part of the br.com community and not people just looking for the
prize. This tourney is about the
br.com community and our friends having a little fun. To sign up just email me
at email@example.com, include a link to your report or tell me how old
school you are, and the name you'll compete under as well as your b.net name
and usual name. The number of players is essentially unlimited, but if we get
more than 64 you’re going in as an alternate and may not get to play. If
we have an off number of teams some people may get randomly generated first
3)The tourney is designed to have a little fun. Please be good mannered towards your opponents in the channel, and of course any cheat programs and map hacks are entirely prohibited. This shouldn't be taken as forbidding any cheese tactics you happen to enjoy using during the games themselves. Excessive spamming of the tourney channel or another player may result in your disqualification. I don't think we'll have much problem here since it's a community tourney.
might have a few disconnects during the games. If both teams agree, then you
may restart the game from a saved game or restart the entire game. Otherwise it
gets played as 2v1 until the finish. If both players from a team disconnect
that team loses, no matter what was happening in game. Finals games will be
restarted from a save.
5)Since it's a br.com tourney, I'm sure that we will have plenty of people wanting to observe the games. If a tourney admin wishes to watch, they must be allowed to. Second priority goes to officially selected people wishing to write a battle report on the games. Other observers are optional and must be approved by all players. No observer may say ANYTHING to either player in the game. The finals and semifinals will probably be full of officials, so don't expect to get to observe them. Any observer must leave on request of the players except a tourney official. And if I’m the one in a game lagging it up, I’ll leave so the rest of the officials will probably do so also if it’s a problem.
6)In keeping with the BR.com philosophy of spreading the wealth, the first place team will be given $50, the second place team leader $30
7)It's a single elimination tourney. This is for two main reasons. First, it’s a lot easier to run and keep track of. This makes it funner for everyone when you don't have to wait on an admin to figure out whats going on. Second, we have a lot of truly good players, but I want to make it fun for the more casual participants as well. In a single game, single elimination tourney luck plays more of a factor and weird and unusual strats that work only once can be used. Finals will be best of three.
8)If both teams agree on a map, they can use any official blizzard map, WCG, or PGT map on melee setting and play on that map. If they can’t agree First round the games will be held on Medusa, Second on Winter Conquest, Third on Rivalry, and Finals on Dire.
9)The winning team leader must save a replay from each tourney game and email it to me after each game. I ask that you post the replay at the br.com replay section.
10) Big thanks go out to Dibbler and Ling who contributed most of the prize money to this tourney. People like this who give back to the community help give everyone a fun time, and they have my admiration.
