Our SECOND pre-LAN boiloff tourney will be held Thursday February 28, 2013 from 9:00 – 10:30PM. Information and rules below:
Anyone and everyone (even if you're not attending the next LAN) is welcome! 1st place will earn an extra raffle ticket for the upcoming LAN, and 1st-3rd finishers will earn a marathon point for LAN-day (used to determine LAN champion). We'll proceed with the tournament if we get at least 10 people. Rules below:
Participants will be randomly split into two teams at the beginning of each map- Counter-Terrorist and Terrorist. Each round will proceed until one side has scored 4 wins on that map, and then the map will switch to the next in the queue (with another random team configuration). The player with the lowest score on the losing team at the end of each map will be eliminated from ability to win the tourney (though they can certainly continue to play – they just place an “x” next to their name). At the half-way point we hold a “bonus round” whereby one eliminated player can re-enter play by getting the best score on the winning team for that map. We've found that this format combines luck and skill in such a way that everyone, regardless of skill, has a shot to make it pretty far.
We'll also be trying some new custom maps found through the new CS:GO integration with the Steam Workshop, and we will be throwing in a few arms race and gun game rounds to keep it fresh.
Also, following the boiloff, signups for the LAN will be officially opened! Get first dibs on your seat and come on out and get amped up for LAN day!
