So I have this idea that we should have a renegade SC2 tournament and I would like to see if ppl are interested.

So I was thinking that it will be a best of 3 in the early rounds and the final would be a best of 5. When you know who you are fighting the 2 players themself sort the matches and report result to me( im sure everyone is fair enough to not cheat here). Ideal would be to play the matches on a set schedule but dont think that would work so I was thinking you would have a week or something for each round.

So ppl interested post here and I will come with more info when I see how many that wants in( matchups,maps etc)

Interesting, but unfortunately I really suck at SC2 even though I enjoy watching the pro-gaming level of play :)

I'd love some games.
I'm way out of practice, though I've had a few 2's games with krez that sharpened me up a bit.
I'd say I'm probably mid gold in terms of actual skill now, though I'm still sitting in diamond from when I played more.

Okies, I'm taking a 6 day absence as permission to take over, mwahaha!

With 9 signups, we should probably go ahead and start organising.

I'll be making a private channel on bnet whenever I log in, Renegade Legion.
Not sure how it works atm, there's no FAQ and I'm not sure if a private chatroom will stay around once made. (cant see any password protection, or clan options)
Try and join the thing, and tell me what do.

Idea 1:

A group stage (or two) then a knockout tournament.
Group A
4 players
Group B
4 players
Group C
3 Players
---
runners up Group
3players

winner A----------------Winner C
---vs---}_____vs_____{---vs---
winner B----------------Winner runners up

With 3-4 people per group, a round of 1 might be more convenient for those involved.

---------------------------------------
Idea 2
A straight up knockout tourney
With a losers bracket.
Will need an extra man.
---------------------------------------

All replays should be submitted and linked on the forums :D (either one player from each matchup uploads their games, or send em my way and I'll sort it)

--------------------------------------

First matches played, there's still time tonight, but I'm going to set a deadlines for group A-C matches of Friday.
The runners up group matches to be played Saturday at the latest, as well as starting the semi finals.
I'll draw lots as to who plays whom, rather than go with the arbitrary a vs b.

Do post if you're interested in joining the fun in the next tournament, a double elimination knockout.
Players seeded from this week or so will start in the quarters (if we get enough interest!)

double checked: Asurao #929

might it be because i'm on the US battle.net? I've added Dougal and Vadam.

Doc

Cant play across zones :<
I don't know if a temp code will be usable to make a smurf account to play the games on. (I still have the ones that came with the game)
If not we'll have to figure something else, even some dreaded.... account sharing ><

GuardianAnge1
Tuesday, 8th February 2011, 22:49
pretty silly that they block zones... especially between Europe and the US..

maybe it's easier to just cut me out of the tournament

Doc
Tuesday, 8th February 2011, 23:06

Aye, it's been a hot topic since beta. Pro's have to share accounts and the like (or buy copies for multiple regions)

I fear I have to forfeit - I don't have the time atm to play this (and have to admit I missed this thread after the initial post)

But good to see people doing this though :)
