rules written in cyan have been changed/added January 3rd 2013

7.3.
8.8 removed



Max 8 members per team

Explaination:

- you may have 8 members max

- if you loose some members due to any problems ( real life, kicked from the team ),
you may delete those and add new players who do not belong to another team. Always make sure though to not have more then 8 players total. That will be possible through out the tournament.


If the person has been member of 1 team and leaves than he/she isn't allowed to play any more in this tournament.

So think twice before you leave a team.


1.3. has been deleted on both tournaments


League postponed for unknown time

Hello Captains!

I am very excited to see this tournament get underway. I was looped in a couple weeks ago about it when several members of the community got together to discuss the rules for it, and I am honored to support it. The rules for it were presented to me, then finalized, and are now posted above. I'm proud to put the Cryptic/ PWE "stamp of approval" on them, so please let me know if you have any concerns or questions.

This tournament is a "test" run of what I would love to see occur on a much larger, league scale. If all goes well, I would love to see a PvP competitive league start up once the first class of PvP Boot Camp participants graduates. That way we can have a ton of teams participate!

To provide a little incentive to the winning team of this tournament, I will ship out each of the winners (5 total, 1 for each team member) a boxed copy of STO that has been autographed by the STO dev team. It's also good for 30 days of Gold membership for you or a friend. If we get the league off and running, I would love to see even bigger and better prizes.

Good luck, have fun! See you in the queues

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

You can either participate in one or both tournaments.

Good point if you don't have a team please put your name down @handle and ask for an invite or gather your own team
