Stealing the rules off of my last tournament, with a few modifications:
Standard 1v1 elimination tournament. Normally I don't go for a losers bracket, so it'd be single elimination, but depending on how many people sign up, I'm happy to implement one.
Games are Score/Solo (it's 1v1, doesn't make a difference)
Best of 7 games (that is, first to four wins).
First game is random map.
Loser of the first game picks the map for the next game. From there, it's alternated choice.
Dual and Dual+ only
Edit: If there are any disputes over the mobile choice of a player, in that it is perceived that that would cause an unfair advantage and for some strange reason you can't work it out like reasonable people, you both play that round as Random. Bear in mind though that I'm not going to be impressed to hear this happening. You're in SoV - be evil, not a douche.
Since GBC's slightly more balanced that GBNA/GBWC is, I'm going to drop any mobile restrictions, unless folks have a particular preference otherwise?
Matchings will be drawn by random number. Edit: Depending on out-of-branch interest, I'll probably rig it so any folks who's not actually played GB often before play each other, rather than dropping anyone in at the deep end. >.>;
Once your matching has been drawn, unless you've given prior notice, you have three days in which to play your match. After which, both players have one day in which to PM me with absolute apologies for holding up this tourney. If neither should PM me about it, both are eliminated and I'll rejig the matchings. If one should PM, but not the other, that one will go through. If both PM me, I'll flip a coin. You cannot go through more than once in this fashion and this is not an option after the semi-finals. If you try to go through a second time like this, you will be eliminated straight off and your opponent will go through. I know it might sound a lil' stupid, but it's about as fair as it gets.
Not sure what prize to suggest for this, given that I doubt anyone really wants GBC cash, so I'm open to suggestions. Or we could just let the winner choose what they want. Prize limit's £20 (~$30USD), but if we have a lot of people sign up, I'll put in a second-place prize too.
I will also be participating so on the off-chance I actually do well for once, whoever finishes below me will win that prize.
