I have decided to put on a 2v2 Nomad Tournament -
Sign ups are simply by replying in this thread with your two voobly names and ratings. The tournament is open to everyone. Sign ups will close Sunday October 18th. (As of Oct 15, we have 47 teams signed up -- as you can see below)
The tournament will begin week 1 from Oct 19th - Oct 25th, so you will have to play your first match during that week. (although if you cannot play during that week, but you could the following week earlier in the week it would be ok to play it then as well). I am going to make sure the tournament is completed by early december.
You will schedule games in the provided forums (if we get them soon), and once an agreed upon time is set, that time must be honored. Failure to do so may result in the an admin loss.
At this point prize money is NOT set. We will be collecting donations for prize money throughout the duration of the tournament, so I really can't say how much we will have for a prize pool. However, I am hoping to reach a goal of $1000 US. If you are someone who wishes to donate to help make this tournament great, please PM me and I'll send you more info.
So find a partner, practice your nomad games, and get ready for a fun tournament.
Memb will be streaming some of the matches live, as he is the official caster for this tournament.
Thx and I look forward to many of you signing up.
On a side note -- I am looking for a couple reputable AoC personalities to help with running the tournament, and such persons being able to make logical decisions for problems that arise during the tournament. If you are such a person, please send me a PM and I will consider adding you as a tournament admin. Thx very much -- as I am not able to run the entire tourney without some help. Every tournament I have run (and there have been at least 6 or 7 by now that I have run) has a few issues that need to get resolved, so I never expect it to run flawlessly without any issues -- so that is why we need level headed admins that are trusted by the community.
Finally, I am looking for some help with setting up the forums, and making the posts more attractive. If you can help in this area, please PM me and I will be glad for the help.
