This year’s EVO is going to be bigger than ever. In order to make sure the event runs smoothly, we’re putting out an official call for experienced tournament goers to join the staff as an official EVO judge. If you’re interested, please continue reading.
What does a judge do?
A tournament judge is responsible for running the double elimination bracket in one or more tournament pools. Judges are also responsible for enforcing the EVO tournament rules while running the bracket.
What do I need to know to Judge?
You should be intimately familiar with how to run a double elimination bracket. Tournament experience is a must. If you’ve run tournaments before or judged an EVO pool in the past, even better! You must be committed to running your pool and finishing on time. This is not as easy as it sounds! It’s a bit like herding cats in a hurricane. If you don’t know what I mean, maybe Judging is not for you. :bgrin: You must be level headed, responsible, and be willing to uphold the integrity of the event.
If you are selected as a Judge, you will be requested to report to Judges training at 9:00 PM on Thursday Night. Judges will also receive an EVO Judge T-Shirt so they can be clearly identified by the players, VIP seating for Sunday’s finals, and special recognition on the EVO2k.com website.
How many spots are available?
There are 52 pools at EVO which require judges.
Sounds like fun. How do I sign up?
Please fill out the following survey and mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org before Saturday, June 13th (that’s REALLY soon). The subject of your e-mail should be EVO Judge Application.
