Round starts: Monday, October 3rd, 2016
Round ends: Sunday, October 9th 2016 (Midnight PT)

Rules

Pairings

REMINDER: This is a home/away tournament. Some of the flags on the pairings are inaccurate due to a longstanding bug in the software. Click here for an easily searchable list of teams (ctrl + f) with captain denotation, and then go here if you need to find their specific steam profiles.

NOTES: New rule! Players who are permanently banned from the Hot Mess group may not participate in the tournament. Team 1337 and Luminosity were not paired due to their players' permanent bans from the Hot Mess group in accordance with the above. Their matches have been overturned.

Post match schedules, results, or questions related to Round 2 in this thread. General tournament questions should go in the main thread.

Results must be posted in this thread with a screenshot before the round end deadline.
Results are not to be sent over steam IM.

EVEN IF YOUR GAME IS STREAMED,
YOU MUST POST YOUR RESULTS IN THIS THREAD
failure to do so will result in a forfeit loss.

When scheduling your match with your opposing team, offer a reasonable amount of times that your team is available.
AND don't forget to make sure everyone on your own team is kept up to date regarding setting up match times, as well as, dates and times of matches.

All this may sound like common sense but these simple reminders need to be said because stupid stuff, like the examples above, happen all the time.

Be mindful and respectful of each other and the admins won't have to crack the whip. Our arms are tired.   :(

Week one of the First Hot Mess Sponsored tournament is in the books! We are all glad with the turnout and the level of play so far! To kick off the second week of action we are going to start organizing and gathering more streamers and casters of all skill levels and intent! If you have an interest to have your match streamed, please have your match scheduled by Wednesday 2400 EST as to allow us to organize and assign casters to various matches. This is not to say if you do not have your match scheduled by this time you will not have a streamer/caster however in order to organize and guarantee the maximum exposure for your matches, we ask you try and get your matches scheduled by this time! Good luck to everyone the rest of the way!

Why was this match never posted on the forums?

what would that have achieved?

All matches need to be posted via forums prior to match, no exceptions


what would that have achieved?

Since someone is telling me there have been a few complaints about me missing matches...

First off, I am not going to track your team down. It is not my job to follow you and cast your match. If you really want your matches documented and shoutcasted then you and your team need to put effort into helping contact streamers and scheduling properly.

Second, the poor scheduling and timing. Some teams are not even posting their match schedule, and some teams decided to play it the exact day that they post. This gives very little time to prepare and find casters. I am not going to drop my schedule to immediately stream some Left4Dead 2 with a few casters I can hopefully pick up that same evening. Especially when I already had an important event to attend today from 1 - 5pm PST.

TL;DR - If you really want your matches streamed then put some effort into making them easier to coordinate. We are not your lapdogs.

Once someone makes a tiny effort to get games streamed then we'll go out of our way to post before they happen, xbye wasn't going to be able to cast it on short notice regardless. He is the only one that is doing anything so if he can't then there's most likely no point. We had a POV stream from one of our players and that's the best it was ever going to get, We did your job for you.

If the match times are on short notice and we're never completely sure when exactly the game is going to be then our priority isn't going to be making sure that we post our match time so that you can do nothing with that information.
