Starcraft 2‎ > ‎


Credit to Sam and Dave for this awesome idea!

The Essentials

The tournament will be held at my place on January 8th, 2011. IRC and my place will be open at 9:00am, and signups for the tournament will end at 10:30 am.

IRC will also be available to coordinate for people who are not in the local geography. A howto for IRC using a web browser for those born after 1980 is attached to this page.

IRC Server information (will be available on the 8th):
channel: #starcraftpuyallup
password: weasel


First, I'm thinking of a double elimination tournament, with a blind draw (which means it will be more or less random who you get paired with). Matches will be single round, with both parties voting on maps to eliminate.

Disconnects will count as a loss for the disconnected party, unless the referee calls a rematch (Which we will in most cases, except for rage quites :).

Each player will get to disqualify 1 maps from a pool of 5. The maps for the tournament are:
Xel'Naga Caverns
Scrap Station
Lost Temple
Steps of War


Greg was kind enough to state the obvious that spectating can be done in game. I will have a computer hooked up to every match so that we can spectate in the comfort of the living room. For remote matches, observation will be allowed provided that it does not lag the game.


1st prize is a steam game up to $55, 2nd prize is a steam game up to $23.

General Policies

Just so I have said it, this is an all ages event, so abusive language will not be tolerated, but friendly banter is encouraged.
