This is a 1v1 tourney-join any three games per round-No more than 3 total games in any round:
The exact rule and how it will be written: You are only allowed to join three total games in any given round. Joining 4 or more will disqualify you. If you make a mistake you need to send me a pm within five minutes of making the mistake with the game number. Be careful and make sure you only join three games and no more in any round and you will not have a problem. Bounties count as a game so if you want to try for a bounty in a round--do not join three games right away. Wait to join your three total games.
Now that round one is over-there are no excuses about not knowing, not understanding, my rules are not clear, there is too much congestion on page one. I was fair and gave breaks. I am sorry if this is unclear to anyone, but I will abide by the exact rule listed above. If a mistake is done and the person follows the rule I will go by time stamps of initialized games. If a technical issue happens I will work through the issue. Anything besides these two things will result in disqualification.
To advance to the next round-you have three things that need to be done:
1. Do not join more than three games 2. Do not play the same player more than once-if a mistake happens pm me so I can investigate 3. Just win one game
Maps used: Players choice--maps chosen with players choice of settings-up to five different per round Classic-CC-auto-seq-chained-esc-sunny-have to have the original map (well close to it) Random-auto-seq-chained-esc-sunny Arms Race-auto-seq-unlimited-no spoils-sunny-have to have my favorite map in it
Many games will be set up using the above settings and.......
Each round I will randomly choose players with maps and settings to throw those maps into the mix.
I will pm players that get drawn and give them 24 hours notice to send me settings unless I can find them in the thread.
While the player list is huge I will have at least ten different maps with settings available for you to join--at least until the later rounds
I will also post in the thread free for all choice--basically allowing players to send me a pm with settings while I am making games and I will make some with their settings.
I may also choose some popular maps and setting to throw into the mix.
Since there are many maps and settings please pay attention to what you join. There may be freestyle--if you join a game you are not interested in--you are stuck with it.
Reminder: To advance to the next round you must win one game each round. Any player that does not win one game, joins more than 3 games in any one round, or does not show up will be out of the tourney.
Time frame to join in a round--right now it is about one week. It may get extended or if players have a good enough reason why they need more time I may allow it --it all depends on the situation.
You must choose to play three different players--so if you are green and have joined games it must be against three different players. Nothing you can do if someone joins your games and you were waiting for games. If you join with the same player by accident please pm me for a ruling.
I hope this covers everything. I believe this is very clear. If something should be written clearer let me know.
Feel free to ask questions.

MrBenn-contest for most played maps(1 year) –details: The premium prize will be twelve months for the first person to win on all available maps, or twelve months shared between the players with the most unique map wins (if it's more than four then there will need to be some way of identifying the top four)(over all winning percentage will be the tie-breaker if needed)
Report to HighlanderAttack when you have won on every map or When you are done with the tourney-report to HighlanderAttack the amount of different maps you were able to win on. They will be verified and a list will be kept
General Achievement Medals:
“Best winning percentage for the entire tourney” (minimum 25 games played)—so whoever has the best percentage over the entire tourney with a minimum of 25 games played will win.
“First player to lead the field in wins”—after every round I will check to see who is the first player to lead all other players with wins. This means after the round is complete if someone has more wins than everyone else they have lead the pack and will win the GA Medal. Congrats to TheFlashPoint for winning this GA Medal with a 19-2 record--all other players have less than his fantastic record entering round 8 so he leads the pack
“Player that lasted the longest in the tourney only playing one game per round”—I will check to see who lasts the longest in the tourney but only plays one game per round.
“Last standing freemium player”.—last freemium player left in the tourney—if two players tie they will have a one game playoff—if more than two a round robin playoff
“Last standing first time tourney player”.—last first time tourney player left in the tourney—if two players tie they will have a one game playoff—if more than two a round robin playoff
“Longest winning streak in the tourney”—for this one, players that think they have the longest winning streak must report it to HighlanderAttack—I will keep track based on game numbers for the players that report their winning streak to me. This is wins in a row without losing.
“First Player to beat a team CC member” and report it on the thread—player must finish the game with a team CC Member with a win and report it first on the thread. Hint—Team CC Members are in Bold Color in the threads. I will see if there is a list of all members I can add to the thread for easy viewing. Congrats to Rodion for winning this GA MedalGame 8384462

NOTE: Most of the statistics needed to report data on a tourney can be used with Map Rank. This add on can be used by choosing the tournament and settings needed to show the data. Many of the GA Medals will need a player to last into the late rounds so if you get knocked out too early feel free to announce in the thread your statistics and we can keep track a the records get broken or hold on.
