This tournament will be run on the official C&C Tiberian Dawn Remastered server, so please confirm that you are able to access it before you attempt to join this event. In addition, for ease of communication and for the organisation of your own matches, all participants will be required to be in the GameReplays Discord channel. When signing up, please state the username under which you will be playing in the tournament, it is preferable for your in-game and discord name to match so your opponents/referees can find you easily.

It is your own responsibility to make sure you check in and show up at the correct time and date. Check in procedure is elaborated thoroughly further below.

Event Format


The tournament will be played as a single elimination tournament. All games will be best of 3 up to the Semi finals which will be played as Best of 5. Grand finals will be played as Best of 7. Third place playoffs will likely not be held, however, if both third and fourth place players wish to, they most certainly can be held before the Grand Finals.

Signing up and checking in


You must be signed up by the time that sign ups close (1 hour before the event is due to start). Entries after that time may be accepted at the discretion of the tournament organizers. Apart from that, you need to be checked in before the event starts. All check-ins will be done on the GameReplays Discord channel in the specific check-in chat channel under remastered tournaments. Check-ins will be started 30 minutes before the event is due to start and then brackets will be created, a simple message saying "check me in" will be more then enough to let referees know that you are attending. Participants who have not checked in by the time the check ins close will under no circumstances be added to the brackets and be able to participate in the event.

Please note Commanders, letting someone else play in your name in an event is treated as cheating by GameReplays and will be punished accordingly. The fixed penalty for a first offence cheat conviction prescribed by the site rules is a 28 day suspension from GameReplays. The penalty for a second offence is a permanent ban.

Map List
The following is the map list for each round based around 16 players signing up and will be adjusted on the day dependant on numbers. No other maps will be added to the map pool listed so there will be no surprises of unexpected maps. Positions to be chosen will be pretermined as stated, if you have any doubts about which positions you should be choosing then please see the map overviews in the sign up thread. Following the completion of the first game, players will reverse positions on the same map. The deciding map will always be Green Acres with the pretermined positions of top versus bottom.

Although we will leave the decision to the players, if they cannot agree which positions they will take, be it the first game of a map or the deciding map, then the player on top in the bracket goes in the top position and bottom of the bracket goes the bottom position.
  • Round One: Four Corners, Reverse, Green Acres
  • Round Two: Red Sands, Reverse, Green Acres
