This tournament is open to 32 players, played over five rounds (all on the same day!!). Sign-ups will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Players who were no-shows to previous GameReplays.org tournaments may be excluded from participation. PRIZES:
The glory of winning and the bragging rights and a shiny new Medal SIGN-UP:

If you don't get a confirmation reply immediately, please be patient! Please do not sign up if you aren't 100% sure you will be attending the tournament! If the tournament fills up before you sign up, you will be informed and given the chance to be an Alternate or remove your name from the list.
Cancellation: Things can come up, but please inform Discodave ASAP
if you will be unable to attend the tournament, so that a slot can be opened up for a team that can. Failure to show up without in-advance cancellation may result in registration denial from future tournaments. FORMAT:
The tournament will be Single-Elimination and Best-of-One until there are *FOUR* players remaining (the semi-finals), at which point it will be a best-of-three (and still single elimination).
Maps – Predetermined, dependent on round number. See below.
Factions – All allowed, including random.
Seeding – Seeding will be done through random assignment after registration once 32 teams have signed up. Brackets will be released as quickly as they are filled up. Once the brackets are posted seeding is considered final, excluding updates for Alternate players.
Match Result Reporting – Rounds 1 through 3 will not be watched by referees. Please save your replays in case there is a result dispute!! Once there are four players remaining, matches will be refereed and the replays automatically saved.
Out-of-Sync (OOS) Errors: Due to fact that OOS are somewhat prevalent during KW matches, the following policy will be followed - Firstly, YOU MUST SAVE THE REPLAY IF YOUR GAME GOES OOS. A tournament staff member will review this replay. If there is a clear winner, that player will advance. If not, the match will have to be replayed. Keep in mind that the staff member's decision will be 100% final and non-negotiable. Your eligibility for future tournament may be hindered by conflict. Repeated OOS errors in relation to a particular player may indicate abuse. Should this occur, the player in question may be disqualified.
Cheating/DCing/Dispute Resolution: Reports and issues will be resolved by the tournament manager and the referees. Cheating and intentional DCing will result in removal from the tournament and a ban from all subsequent tournaments hosted by Gamereplays.org. Poor sportsmanship may also result in disqualification from the tournament.
Other: Players that do not show up for their play time and are more than 15 minutes late will be disqualified. At this point, an alternate team will replace them, or the other team will receive a bye for the round. Players are expected to continue playing until eliminated or the end of the tournament is reached. Failure to play rounds in an expedient manner will result in disqualification.
