We are only limited by amount of servers we have available but I don't think that's going to be the issue.

Nice one Doomsday.
Count me and Lucy in - both random factions.I should be around, but Lucy may have to leave early.

The details at the bottom of the image are unclear, so it took me a while to work out what time it's on. I suggest to repeat those details on prominent text below the image.

Also, I don't get this bit (won't there be no non-banned, unplayed maps left after round one?):

For games after first game, loser of previous game gets to pick the map to be played next. However, he cannot choose a map banned before game one. Also, no map can be played twice.

Everyone who registered for the tournament has been added in original post. If you applied but your name is missing, make some noice.

I'm getting hyped. Tournament is tomorrow. 13 players signed up so far. I am going to keep registration still open but lock max player size for 16 players.

Couple of pointers for players and those looking forward to watch the tournament. Tournament starts 17:00/5:00pm UTC. That is one hour earlier than Monday streams normally. Me and ZxGanon will start streaming 16:00/4:00pm UTC and that is good opportunity to get some warmup games for the tourney. Most likely we will use ZxGanon's twitch but I will post more information about that later.

@Players: As explained in the original post, we will be using Discord for logistics for the tournament. Click this link to join the discord channel we are using.

If you didn't read the entire original post of the thread, please do so. It has explanation of tournament structure and rules. If you signed up for the tournament, you should be online on Discord and on OpenRA Swiss Tournaments server at the starting time of the event (17:00/5:00pm UTC). At that time I will check if anyone's missing and announce brackets for first round.

Until tomorrow.

I haven't played a td game in 4 month, is it possible to be matched up with someone who has no clue how to play it as well so we can be both bad and enjoy our mutual mediocrity ?

I'm not kidding,; I even considere a flamer rush !

I know you are kidding but anyway..

Also, when you lose round 1, you will be paired against equally bad player who also lost round 1. ;)

Hi! Unfortunately, Lucy and I spent longer than planned up England's highest mountain, so we won't make it (we won't be back until almost 7pm UT), so please remove us from the pool. Apologies for the inconvenience.

I'll be eagerly watching the remaining games when home and perhaps I can join Ganon on stream.

glhf to all competitors
