Who will the coaching be given by? I'm only curious, as I have no intention entering as I am a lowly silver league player.

Oh, if you want to know of a good place to get word out on your tournament you should post or contact the people at SC2's biggest dedicated community, Teamliquid.net. I have no idea which mod/admin you would need to talk to (I know Hotbid is one) but they can post the event in their calender and even post a link to the stream when it goes live. I watch a ton of the streams that they link from there.

might want to make an update. Since we got more than 64 people i had to change it to 128 so more people could play. 128 was the second lowest amount of players i could choose. so far we have about 68 people. also if  you want game streamed please contact us so we know.

One more thing, you need to have an account on that site and have to be able to play, you have to sign up for it and check in 30 minutes before it starts so you can play. These are just some rules that people tend to forget.

What should I put for rank if I haven't played any matches yet?

iWINuFAIL's picture

I haven't played in a while so I have no intention of joining but would certainly be up for casting.

Sangyerians you put down the wrong map pool. Those maps are for the best of 3, and the loser of the first game chooses one of those maps, and if the other person loses after the 2 game they chose one of those maps

Only if I knew how to play Starcraft.

This would be awsome to watch livestream if possible for people who can't or don't have starcraft 2

I'm in.  I hope to see some of you mods in the tourney as well!

bip267's picture

you will, we have humankiller, ares, and sangyerians in it. I cant be in it because i have to admin it but i get to be in the stream so thats a perk. There will be more people joining so far we have 75 people out of 128.

So.... how good is everyone here?

@coll1de

Prepare yourself for Semblance's super secret awesome strategy. You guys will never see it coming.

I'd love to sign up but I never took the time to get good so I guess I can prepare for the next tournament.  Which I really hope there will be.

MrDudeMan's picture

To anyone whos thinking that theyre not good enough. Really its more of a thing to do for fun, it probably doesn't really matter how good you are. Depressed John and Dan suck too I think

Mista.Q's picture

Well the reason I don't want to go sign up is that I don't want to face a diamond player (or just a higher player) first round and have no chance, I just wouldn't have fun with that personally.

Sangyerians's picture

Don't get too cocky Ares. Diamond on NA isn't saying much. There're more than a few masters signed up (from TL I think).

 

My iPhone actually died so I haven't been able to log into battle.net (cos I stupidly got an authenticator) but I should be good for the tournament. 

 

Everyone should register. You have even less excuse not to play this than not to ladder, because you could lose points on the ladder but this is just like playing a custom game. You can definitely be a part of something sweet. Make a day out of it, at least hang out on our stream. It'll be like a day long podcast. 

 

Bip, I think we might have to push it a bit earlier for the Americanos, tournaments usually go on for a while and we have to take into account the fact people probably will go to dinner like every hour during the event. What do you think? Too late?

bip267's picture

Its up to you i dont really care that much. Sangyerians  you might not want to do the tournament because we would have to cast you till you get knocked out or not and we still have to decide who we are going to stream.

Sangyerians's picture

I'll probs lose first round anyway. I have two PCs so I can stream and play. We'll talk more about it on Skype, it's like 5am here right now.

XL_ARES_IX's picture

Who said I was cocky? I know that I have no chance at winning, but going in with an optimistic mood doesn't kill you...

bip267's picture

We hit over 100 people! This is awesome and one day left, I might have to change the limit for maximum players at the rate that people are signing up.
