Signup:

Since we are only allowing a limited number of players, sign up will be on a first come, first served basis. As soon as we have our total number of players, sign ups will be closed. To sign up, head to:

www.thegladiatorroom.com

Head to the forums there and post in the appropriate thread. You will find it in the tournament sign up forum.

Reporting:

If you are signed up, you will report to the chatroom on the website 15 minutes prior to the start of the tournament. You will post in the chat that you are ready to play. We will start the tournament promptly at the appointed time. We will wait until 10 minutes after the start of the tournament for any no shows. Anyone who shows up late or who doesnt show at all will be disqualified and their opponent given a bye. If you are eliminated, feel free to hang around the chat to find out who wins, set up casuals, whatever.

I will try to answer some questions that come up often.

What about lag? Dropping? Etc?

Here is how lag will be handled. Once you have your opponent and you have exchanged Gamertags, one of the players will host a player match. Make sure you set it to only have two spots and one private. Once the match starts, you have the first round, AND ONLY THE FIRST ROUND, to determine lag. If you have lag, or feel you have lag, you will drop before the first round ends. If you do not do this, the match will count. If you do drop, the other player will host a player match. Same rules will apply. If you still find it unplayable, then you may drop and come back to board, and post in the chat about your problems and I will see about rearranging the bracket. You are only allowed to do this once, so if your second opponent still lags, you will just have to deal with it.

Dropping will not be tolerated. If a connection is lost after the first round has been completed, either the players work it out among themselves, or you may come back to board and post in the chat your grievance. I will be the sole authority on determining the consequences, if any, that will be assessed. Make sure you remember the details of the match, so an accurate assessment can be made.

Any other problems that arise shall be brought to the board and will be dealt with then. If you have any questions about these rules, please post before the start of the tourney.

How will I know who I play? Will someone message me?

A bracket will be posted the day of the tournament and will be continually updated throughout the tourney. If for some reason you cant check it, i.e. you dont use a router, then tell me in when you sign up and I will make sure you know who your next opponent is.

Once again, to sign up head to:

www.thegladiatorroom.com

Good luck and have fun!

I would like to apologize in advance to those that have signed up for our previous tournaments (particularly the HDR cash prize one). We moved to a new host, and so you will have to register again. :frowning:

Sorry about that.


#3

spectator mode would have been cool


#4

Yea, it would have been. :sad:

We only have 3 spots left on HDR (might have to make it bigger if we get a lot of interest).

About 20 spots left for SF4.
