Good news everyone! Our coming event will be our best one yet!
Within the last day we broke our record for sign-ups! As of this writing we sit at 47 sign-ups, and people just keep on coming. If you want to secure your seat we advise you to do so promptly, as prepay will close this coming Friday at midnight. Prepaying also enables you to pledge to unlock the higher prize pot for the tournament(s) you want to enter! The event is less than three weeks away, we can barely contain ourselves.
As you may know we recently revised our Starcraft 2 tournament. As such we have made some revisions to our Team Fortress 2 tournament. First, we added the maps koth_badlands and koth_lakeside_final to the list of playable maps. Second, we adjusted the points for arena. To win a round you must now reach 5 points, up from 4. To win the whole match your team must earn 8 points, up from 5. So to clarify, if your team were to gain 5 points the first round your team would then swap sides and start the second round, and if your team were to then earn 3 more points your team would win with a total of 8 points. We also have revised the list of banned weapons, the full list is:
- Back Scratcher
- Battalions Backup
- Brass Beast
- Candy Cane
- Mad Milk
- Warrior's Spirit
