ARILOU ARTIFACT – May SuperMelee Knock-out tournament
« on: May 22, 2007, 10:21:39 pm »

Woops, forgot to post this earlier. Anyway, its time for another KO tournament!
This is the Arilou Artifact! See how it glows and throbs. Surely you want a piece of this? You can play online against other StarCon geeks, how marvellous!

Date: 2 June 2007
Time: Saturday from 4pm EST
Place: #uqm-arena at irc://chat.freenode.net

Be here for this fourth ever online Star Control Super-melee knockout tournament!

Time where you live
Sun 6 am Sydney
Sun 8 am Taihape
Sat 1 pm Los Angeles
Sat 4 pm New York
Sat 9 pm London
Sat 10 pm Paris
Sat 11 pm Helsinki

Tournament structure
Basic Knockout tournament (just like the tennis).
Seedings based partly order of entry but mostly on your NetPlay tournament record.

Provisional Schedule (all EST)
16.00 Check-in/Register
16.20 Cut-off for entry
16.30 Round of 16 begins
17.15 Quarterfinals
18.00 Semifinals
18.45 Final – Arilou Artifact

Game rules
1) Maximum 200 pts per fleet
2) Maximum one of each ship type per fleet (no duplicates)
3) Maximum 40 minutes per melee - Timed out games result in both players losing and exiting the tournament (an effort to nullify boring stalemates)
4) You must have your team set up before melee - this prevents you adjusting your line-up to counter your opponent’s team!
5) Thraddash ARE allowed
6) Organiser’s decision is final on all matters and can override rules 1 through 5.

Everyone in the universe should enter. The tournament will be structured in such a way to give newer players easier games early on (don’t ask how, it's complicated)

I hope to see you there! Nice people who don't complain/make excuses when they lose are especially encouraged. Remember, this is about funness.

err...

Apologies to anyone who turned up to this. I was at A&E with my partner (who poked herself in the eye with a peice of grass would you believe) until 5am. I was in no position to be online at 8.00am.

So we'll do this 'May' KO tournament next week - in June

Finally, I might catch one of these!  I just have to not forget... there's the trick, you see...

What date/time will this be at now, exactly?

Okay, well it was bound to happen eventually. I won a tournament! Never mind that I won the final due to the fact that my opponent couldn't handle the lag and gave up in exaspiration.

Anyway, go me.

As for you KanmuX, maybe you'll be there for the next one!
