No rest for the wicked.

Holy crap, so much is going on!

First, we have now exceeded our record of 18 prepays. As of this posting we have 21 prepays! In response we have adjusted how the prepays and attendance info is shown a bit.

As an additional reminder, prepay closes today (Friday the 10th) at midnight. Keep in mind that we guarantee seats for those who prepay, but those who sign up are at risk of not having a seat if we hit capacity at the time of the event. If you want to secure your seat then prepay today! Once you have prepaid, make sure to pledge for the tournaments you want to enter.


Second, I pulled all my hairs out and finally coughed up the tournament schedule, it is as follows:


Starcraft 2:

2pm (1400hrs) Day1, Saturday September 18th 2010


Heroes of Newerth:

If 6 or less teams are signed up:
9pm (2100hrs) Day1, Saturday September 18th 2010 - Whenever it finishes

If 7 or more teams are signed up:
Stage1: 9pm (2100hrs) Day1, Saturday September 18th 2010 - 2am (0200hrs) Day2, Sunday September 19th 2010
Stage2: 10am (1000hrs) Day2, Sunday September 19th 2010 - Whenever it finishes (remaining matches/finals)


Team Fortress 2:

12pm noon (1200hrs) Day2, Sunday September 19th 2010

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for each tournament will occur AT the event. We will be calling for registration leading up to the tournament, so make sure you are present in advance of any tournament you want to enter to ensure you get registered! You must also be present for each and every match otherwise your team risks forfeiting the match (but not the tournament).


Third, we properly updated the Team Fortress 2 rules to reflect the actual way it will play. Somehow this was missed before.

If you want to read the full details go to the tournament details for TF2 in the event details, but to summarize the new old info:


Arena rules:
One match will consist of two halves. Teams will switch sides from first half to second half. A half completes after 15 minutes, or if a team reaches 4 points. If at any point a team acrues 5 points they win the match, reporting the combined scores of both halves.

KotH rules:
One match will consist of two halves. Teams will switch sides from first half to second half. A half completes after 15 minutes, or if a team reaches 2 points. If at any point a team acrues 3 points they win the match, reporting the combined scores of both halves.

Tie breakers of both modes will be single 15 minute rounds, first team to acrue a point wins the match, reporting the combined scores.

Banned Unlocks: The Sandman, Wrangler, Natasha. Any unlocks past the Engineer update will be banned also.


Boy are we excited to get this event under way! Hope to see you there!

These bans are common within the competitive scene of TF2. ESEA and CEVO ban them.
