Honestly, it would probably be better to decrease to the number of teams you’re looking for to 4 or 8, as the number of good teams is really small, and there have been tournaments in the past where teams have been absolutley destroyed and it does nothing good for the community to show a team beating another 500-0, and then seeing that they’re all rank 6 and have never played a tournament game before, not to discriminate against new players, but uh… yeah.

This tournament isn’t just for good teams. The tournament is for the good teams and for any small teams/new teams to participate. The entire first round won’t be streamed, so the worry about seeing 500-0 games is nearly nonexistent.

No problem. Our team has nothing to do with the organization but we did mention we wanted 16 teams for a wide variety rather than just the top 8 teams like MLG did.

This should be another solid event. Can you and Blu make sure to mouseover each armor set + weaponset + amulet for a second or two when checking builds pre-match? That would REALLY help a lot when I put the builds together for the community post-tourney!

We always try, but our priority is to get the matches casted and underway.

Of course, I understand. But it should hopefully only take a second or two to quickly mouseover the armor and each weapon, and some of the biggest feedback I got here on the forums on reddit was disappointment that so many runesets + sigils didn’t get recorded.

I can see exactly where you are coming from, and we encountered this exact problem in the PAX prelims with the first round… The only thing I can say to it though, is even though we had such scores the first round, the other team, not only were they not discouraged, they seemed more pumped than ever to better themselves, and make it further the next time.

May I ask a question, do we need to form the team by same guild tag? I’m SW team but not registered on this competition. so maybe I need to use other guild tag if I sign-up it. but my current team mates don’t have guild slot for make new guild tag.

also can I get the info for what time(of PST or GMT) starting the matchs?
(we asian team can’t join most of competitions by this issue :/)

Can’t answer this directly, as I’m not the one who makes the rules… but I believe it would be best if you were all in the same guild, as it would probably make casting easier, and I’m sure Bagzli will elaborate more. As for the time, it would be 5PM GMT

I am the organizer of the tournament, I made the rules and I will make the brackets. The vVv Gaming PvP Team is only helping me spread the word out so that we can get 16 slots filled up. Keep in mind that I am part of the vVv Gaming organization, I run the guild wars 2 side of things so in extension this is organized by vVv Gaming. They have given me a lot of support on this and have given me a lot of advice so the tournament is run by the entire organization.

I would highly recommend that you are all under the same guild tag, the tag under which you have signed up (if you have signed up). If your friends have all 5 guild spots filled up, they can possibly leave one of those guilds for the duration of the tournament and get re-invite back afterwards?

The bottom line is, I will not prevent you from playing if you don’t carry same guild tags, but it would make things significantly easier on the casters as well as on the audience that is watching. People will recognize you less if they see you all with different tags, they will not take you as seriously.

As for times in GMT it is 05:00 pm, the PST times I have posted in the original post. However, make sure you read about the sign in period and that you log on 20 minutes earlier on Skype to sign-in your team.

Could you add 2 special rules to this tourney, so we see some variety:
1) No more than 1 profession per team
2) NO SPIRIT RANGERS!

Man, a tourney with these rules would be measurably more fun to play in and watch IMO.
