Announcing the Really Big Summer Promod Tournament 2014!
« on: May 12, 2014, 08:01:05 pm »
ATTENTION: Signups have been extended until June 7th, 2014

OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCING:

The Really Big Summer Promod Tournament 2014
(or Really Bad if you Don't Like Us!)

hosted by Rails Barlow and Jacob

Initial Prize Pool: $450
DONATE HERE!


SIGN UP --------> HERE!!


The Basics:

1. This is a Six Round Swiss Style tournament, which will then proceed to a finals bracket of the top 8 teams to determine the champion (similar to the WatchL4D.com Spring Promod Tournament Format).

2. This tournament is North American Based (however, participants from any and all regions are more than welcome to participate!)

3. This tournament will use The Latest Version of Promod.

4. Team Signups will be in THIS thread, in order to keep organization simple. Please designate your team captain, and provide profile links and SteamID information for each player on your roster.

5. Teams have a limit of six players.

6. Team Signups close on June 7th, 2014 at 11:59 PM PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)

7. The tournament goes live on Monday, June 9th, 2014.

8. A round announcement for pairings, scheduling, and result posting (via screenshot) will be supplied for each round, as it was in Another Swiss Tournament.

I'd like to add that teams should include their team's preferred server location in their sign up post. We will take this into consideration while pairing teams.


The FULL TOURNAMENT RULES are posted HERE

The map pool for the tournament is as follows:

Qualification Stage:
Round 1: Swamp Fever
Round 2: No Mercy
Round 3: Dead Center
Round 4: Parish
Round 5: Dark Carnival
Round 6: Hard Rain

8-Team Finals Bracket:
Finals 1: Death Toll
Finals 2: Parish
Finals 3: Dark Carnival

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to post a reply and/or contact Jacob or myself.

GOOD LUCK!

REMINDER: Please do NOT post your team rosters on this announcement thread; the registration thread is linked in number four on this post.

Whether I lost or won my final game didn't matter; I walked away a winner because I played with my friends. Don't ever forget what's really important. Anyone can get good at this game if they put enough time and effort into it, but the people who you meet and who you play with are all that matter.

Hey, a tournament that won't be corrupt because there isn't an old man who still plays video games for some reason and can't let go of grudges running it. Big hopes for Rails and Jacob since I believe they can actually run a tournament (not fuck up every week) and not give everyone shit.

Good luck to everyone!

This game would be perfect if only we removed everything from it and installed CS instead.

I don't know how we would prove the money is legit, or even why we would need to.
There have been 3 tourneys in a row now with similar prize pools.
Plus we really don't gain anything out of making up a fake prize pool... It's not like you pay to enter or anything.
We are just doing it because we want to help grow the game. L4D is in a golden age right now and we want to keep it moving.
