    The 2nd Starcraft II Tourney for tf2maps.net will continue! Hurray!

    Tournament starts tomorrow, the 30th of August (schedule)!

    This time there will be an EU group and an US group, so everyone can participate (except for the Asian people of us, but they are too good at this game anyway)!

    How it will work

    Because I think there will be +/- 6 players for EU and 6 players for US I decided to not use a knock-out tourney, but use a group phase first.
    All EU players will be put in 1 group and all the US players will be put in 1 group. In this group you are going to play against everyone, twice. Every time you win you get 1 point, when you lose you get 0 points.
    For example: Players A plays against player B, the player who is named first gets to choose the map (out of the current mappool in season 3) they are going to play on. When then the 2nd time B plays agaisnt A, B gets to choose the map. In each game you get to ban 1 map you don't want to play on, you will just have to tell you opponent that he can't choose that one.
    At the end, when you will have played agaisnt everyone in your group twice, the first 4 will advance to the semi-finals, and after those come the finals.
    All matches in groupphases will be a single game, semi finals will be a best out of 3 and finals a best out of 5, where both players get to choose 1/2 map(s), and the deciding game (if necessary) will be picked by me (Hanz) and omnomnick (who is helping me running this tourney) and will be the same for everyone.

    I will make the match schedule when the sign-ups are done, and will make it public then. For every 2 matches you play (A vs B and B vs A) you get 3 days to complete. If you really don't have time (but think about this before you enter the tourney), I can delay the particular round by a day or 2 if you have a good reason. Otherwise you will lose that round.

    Sign-ups

    If you wish to participate, make a post here with your name, character code, region (EU or US) and race (Terran, Protoss, Zerg or Random)

    Prizes

    There will be prizes for both 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in both EU and US group. The 3rd price gets a hat: Milkman (donated by Verumae) and another hat I'll donate. 1st and 2nd get to choose out of a pack of 4 games, according to which game you don't own yet. 1st place gets to choose first, then 2nd. This game pack consists out of Terraria (donated by me) and 3 other games (donated by Dark), I'll update this once I remember what games Dark wanted to donate. :p

    Other stuff

    - Here you will be able to see the scores + the schedule!!

    - You will be able to spectate games if you want, just ask the players who are going to play that game.

    - If there is anybody here who wants to livestream and commentate on the games, feel free to tell me (supersandvich, i'm looking at you)!

    - Please make a post in this thread when you will play your games and please update your post with the replays after you finished the games!

    Nobody chooses these anyway :p

    Edit: Or I'm actually going to let everybody say 1 map each game they don't want to play in that game, so you can vote out terrible maps. I'll update the OP with this later.

    Antiga Shipyard is among the top3 maps that Blizzard has released atm. Searing Crater is shite tho, a bit like Xel Naga Caverns and Delta Quadrant ;_;

    I haven't played in about 5-6 months or so, and before that I was only playing a few matches for about 3 months or so.

    DO IT

    Yeah there are a few people who haven't played in a time so don't be discouraged because of that! The group phase will last a week or 2 so there is plenty time to learn through that round, and you could even start practicing now! :D
