    I'm thinking of starting a second site-wide SC2 tournament, and wanted to make a thread to get everyone's opinions. Answer the poll and leave your comments here. The one thing the last tourney didn't have was a 2v2 section. This would be lots of fun in my opinion, so I've included that in the poll.

    Anyways, let me know what y'all think.

    As long as they're treated as 2 separate tournaments, It'd be fun to have 2v2's in..too.

    how could you NOT treat the 2v2s as a different tournament?

    I was thinking along the lines of it being compulsory to compete in both or something. Which of course sounds blatantly stupid now that I type it out.

    It will be both 1v1s and 2v2s, and you'll be able to be in one or both, of course. The players (including your teammate) will have to be from this site, to be fair!

    About the EU thing, last time there wasn't one because not enough people signed up, so to have an EU tournament, there would have to be enough interest in it.

    I would like to see another SC2 tourney, but I would not participate this time around. I would probably just watch the games.

    some questions for everyone: how should the 2v2 teams be decided, random or you're just in charge of finding your partner?

    also when's the best time for it to get started, christmas break? or will most of you be unavailable during that time?

    2v2s should be conducted like random 2v2 quick matches. I don't want any stacked teams.

    that's what I was thinking, but that I think it needs to be teams that are together, not single players and which player wins the most 2v2 teams with a new "random" partner each time. As in..at the beginning of the tourney all the 2v2 players will be placed into a random draw and two people are drawn at a time, and that's your team. Not only does this strengthen bonds between two people that might not know each other, but it makes more sense than seeing two diamond players face two bronze players.

    For the 1v1 tournament, I'm in and we need to use my maps :) I've done a lot of balance changes and added a few more. You can find all of them on the NA server by searching "radaka".
