This thread will serve as the tournament headquarters. All information and announcements I have will be posted here including round assignments, deadlines, official win-loss records, and other information you need throughout the course of the tournament.

Before we begin, however, there are a few rules and regulations I need to go over to facilitate fair and smooth gameplay.

I-Posting of Assignments-
I will post all matches at the start of each round and assign starting colors for the first game. After the first game, colors will be determined by white going to the player who lost the previous game. This will
be checked at the conclusion of each round.

II-Match Scheduling-
Although I assign the matches of each round, I do not and will not schedule your time to play. Once assignments are posted, all opponents need to contact one another and arrange for a playing time. I will do
my best to pair up people with similar availablilities, but that won't be possible in every case.

If you attempt to contact your opponent and get no response within 24 hours, please let me know. If I don't hear from you, I expect that all is going smoothly. I will not make remedies to the situation after the deadline if I have not been contacted beforehand. Let me know ASAP. Matches will be played on Yahoo! Games and you MUST use the Yahoo! ID you signed up with to play all matches(no exceptions--if there's a problem with this,
contact me right away). Be sure to familiarize yourself with the setup of the game applet before your first match.

III-Playing the Match
Games may be played in any of the social
lounges(opponents need to decide where to meet). The player creating the table needs to set the following options:
Protected Table(Be sure to invite opponent), and make sure there is no timer and the Rated Game box is checked.

IV-Procedures for Players Who Abandon/Get Disconnected From the Game
If a player leaves a game in progress, the opponent must click WAIT the first time the dialog box comes up. If the player has not returned by the second time the box comes up, the opponent may choose to WAIT
longer or FORCE FORFEIT as his/her discretion. In cases of a forced forfeit, the winning opponent must e-mail me and let me know it was a forced forfeit, then post results.

V-Winning a match-
The first player to win two games wins the match(All games in a match should be played directly in succession unless that isn't possible--in which case, contact me for approval). Keep note of who won which
game and in what order because that information is necessary for results reporting.

VI-Reporting Results-
For the preliminary and first elimination rounds, results need to be posted in this thread prior to the dealine by both opponents. For the semi-finals and
finals, results need to be sent by e-mail and a post made in the thread saying they have been sent(During those rounds, I ask that you don't reveal the results
of the match until I've posted the next round's assignments or listed the official results).

Here is what is needed for a result report:

Match Number(will be listed in round assignments)
Game 1 Winner
Game 2 Winner
Game 3 Winner(if necessary)
Match Winner

Both opponents' information must match. If it doesn't, I will do an official check and the player(s) whose results do not match the official results will be penalized.

VII-Accusations of Cheating/Problematic Players
If you feel a player has violated the rules in any way or is not cooperative in showing up to play or cooperative during game play, e-mail me the problem and all supporting information you have(DO NOT POST IT
ON THE BOARDS). I will investigate the situation and inform you and the player in question of any action I choose to take on the issue.

VIII-Problems or Concerns
Contact me with any problems, questions, or concerns you may have. Remember that I will be very reluctant to remedy a situation after the deadline if no rules have been broken and I haven't been contact prior to
the end of the round. Unplayed matches that are not approved by me will result in a double forfeit. Be sure to let me know of any problems that arise

I know this seems like a lot, but we need to make sure this runs smoothly.

Thanks, good luck, and first assignments will be up January 3rd in the Afternoon or Evening.


G'luck guys, looking forward to seeing the results :)

Sweep, sweep, sweep!

Okay...here goes. I have the round 1 assignments. You'll have just over 72 hours to contact your opponent to make arrangements, play the match, and BOTH post the results. Failure to post will result in a penalty. ALL players are required to post the results of their match(see previous post above).

On to the match assignments:

NOTE: Each assignment is proceeded by the match number needed in result reporting. The first name listed will play white in the first game and in the second and third games, white will be played by the one that lost the previous game. Be sure to read all rules above before proceeding. There is no reason that anyone shouldn't know what is going on. If you have questions, contact me ASAP

1. Holyangel vs. Shadow Stalker
2. Dricis vs. Exile
3. Gerien vs. Dagrim
4. Saliko vs. Canius
5. Darkwolf vs. Barak
6. Superjames_008 vs. Sartek
7. Stryfe vs. Courtjester
8. Muaddib vs. Dancer
9. Mornelithe vs. Tribal

Good luck all. Results must be posted by 20:00 TB time on January 6th.

Tribal beat me both times. The last game was at least barely passing in my opinion.

Deadline for posting has passed.

DarkWolf had to drop from the tournament, so Barak is awarded the win in that instance.

There are two matches that have not been reported to me.

Saliko vs Canius
Superjames_008 vs Sartek

You four need to e-mail me by 10:00 TB time January 7th to let me know you are still planning on being in the tournament, or you may be removed from competition. If your round has been played, post your results here before that time to avoid receiving forfeits.

Next assignments will be posted around 12:00 TB time January 7th.

Thanks for the work, guys. It's running smoothly for the most part :)

I got you down, too, Canius, just after I made that post.

Here's round two :)

4. Courjester vs. Dricis
5. Dancer vs. Stryfe
6. Sartek vs. Mornelithe

Remember that if there's a problem getting a time scheduled or your opponent is unresponsive, to let me know as soon as possible and definitely before the deadline.
