Hey guys I want to host a tournament at the iseries for mega lols - Basically I want to do a little Starcraft II tournament for fun - I want to keep it quick and fast paced so I was thinking a winner stays on tournament.

Time and Place: Saturday 13:00 at i40!

Rules:
1) Find out the number players and put each number into a hat
2) Each player takes it in turns to pick a number - this will be the order of play
3) Players 1 and 2 fight first and winner stays on
4) Player 3 will then play the winner of 1 v 2 and so on
5) Whoever survives at the end is the ultimate [TO] iseries Starcraft 2 king of the hill royal rumble champion and gets the prize pool of 1 pint of beer, a doughnut and bragging rights

Maps: First map will be Lost Temple - Winner picks next map

Additional notes:
1) Will be open to other players not attending the iSeries
2) Anyone not on TS or by their computer for the start of their match forfeits the game
3) Intro music, spandex, capes, Diglet costumes and WWE style entrances is allowed and highly recommended

Now I understand this isn't the fairest of tournaments because if there are 5 players, player 5 has a high chance of winning but -

1) Winner picks map so has an advantage
2) We get all games done in a few hours
3) Introducing a bit of luck makes things exciting
4) its a royal rumble!

Spread the word to everyone in TO who plays starcraft, let me know what you think + if you are interested

This means that anyone could play if we allocated 2 computers for the match

What do you mean? If you allocate computers the people not at the iseries will not be able to play, or do you mean that anyone (i.e. not in TO) at iseries could play?

My guess is that he means that people that don't own the game but are on the Iseries can borrow someones comp that has it?

I originally planned it for TO only - I wanted to extend it outside of iseries in case a few players who couldn't make it wanted to join in from the comfort of their home.

If we assign two computers it would be fun to watch - also this could mean anyone who doesn't own SC could join in - that's if they can handle getting 6 pooled :smt004

As long as if a game goes on for longer than 30 mins both players have one person screaming in each ear until the game finishes.

If there is quite a lot of people, you could do a knockout style tournament with 4 pcs being used (2 games at once)


Either way, sign me up!

We tested 4v4, 1v1 is a different story! Protoss probes with their regen shield advantage, micro their faces off, win.
