It's RoL tournament time!!

GameReplays.org is proud to announce a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR Rise of Legends tournament sponsored by Big Huge Games

IPB Image


On Saturday 8th July we'll host the first of four 1 vs 1 knockout qualifying tournaments. The winner of each tournament will qualify for the all-play-all Grand Final on Saturday 5th August.

The prizes are as follows:
Overall winner of tournament - $600
Winner of each qualifier - $100

How do you take part?

Sign up for the first qualifying tournament on the GameReplays.org tournament site from Monday 3rd July. Registration for each qualifier will start on the Monday 5 days before that qualifier.

You CAN ENTER EVERY QUALIFIER if you so wish, the only restriciton is that if you win a qualifier you cannot enter another one (for obvious reasons...)

The final will consist of the four qualifier winners in an all-play-all format with each match being the best of three games, the loser picks the next map.

The times of the four qualifier tournaments will vary in order to allow all time zones to participate. The current schedule (subject to change) is:
Saturday 8th July: 15:00 GMT start
Saturday 15th July: 19:00 GMT start
Saturday 22th July: 12:00 GMT start
Saturday 29th July: 17:00 GMT start

So what are you waiting for? Stop reading this post and go practice NOW!

Any questions, please post in $1000 tournament discussion thread in the RoL discussion forum.

Many thanks again to Big Huge Games for their kind sponsorship of this event and to Major and Acrhitect for making it happen!

4 qualifiers with $100 each = $400

These 4 players then play in the final for $600

So the overall winner will take home $700, while the other three players who qualified take home $100 each.

sorry I'm new...

but how do the qualifiers work?

Will there be brackets and scheduled matches and things, or do we just play as many games as we can against other tourney playes and see who does the best in the allotted time?

I can't find the info anywhere, and I've never participated in an online tourney before.

I didn't quite understand it either. Haven't found any information on who I'm playing against. What exactly happens when I go online at 19 GMT today (July 15th)?
