All you need to do to register for this tournament is to post your in-game name & Discord name in the registration topic (also linked below). Only register if you're going to be able to show up on the day of. Registration officially closes on Saturday, 27th Feb at 20:00 GMT.
The check-in period will be between 15:00 and 16:00 GMT, at which point the brackets will be drafted and made official. There will be an official check-in thread that will open at 15:00. To check-in: simply post in the check-in thread and include your in-game name if it's different than your forum name. If you check in and you don't participate, you may be banned from any tournaments for 30 days. If you can't play, don't check-in. Only players that are registered will be allowed to check-in. Only checked in players will be in the bracket. If you have a situation that would cause you to not be able to check-in, but you can still participate then message Leikeze.
You will have 15 minutes to begin your games after the brackets are posted. Brackets will likely be posted by 16:05, but this depends on how late players check-in. You must start your games by 16:15 or you will be disqualified.
If you're early then you're on time. If you're on time then you're late. And if you're late you're disqualified!
There is simply no fun in sitting around waiting on people, so the 15 minutes is the maximum grace period allowed in between all rounds. Failure to appear at any stage of the event will result in a forfeit. Extreme circumstances can be discussed with event staff.
If you need to take a break in between games, inform your opponent and the Referee. At most, five minute breaks will be allowed and only if needed. Maximum one break per round. If a player is found to be abusing this freedom or failing to inform the necessary parties or not returning on time, you will be disqualified at Referee discretion.
All matches will be streamed. So do not start playing until you and your opponent have arranged with a streamer.
In case the streamer causes bad lag, you may choose to play without one, however, you must then send the replay after each match to a streamer so that they can stream the matches.
