About


Ladies and gentlemen!
Welcome to WiFi’s Tournament of Gamekeys: The first independently organized Company of Heroes 2 event in which the prize pool is almost entirely composed of community donations. These donations take the forms of game keys collected from the recent steam summer sale and other miscellaneous sources: there's enough for the top 6 to get something! This 1v1 64 man single elimination tourney will feature 2 days of live events (on twitch) with both The Frontline Network and Rogers ‘n Pounder working together.

Sign-ups


Will start the 13th August and last until the 18th August Signups extended to August 23rd, 12:00 GMT. You can sign up here.

General Rules:


  • No verbal abuse, this includes, sexism, racism, comments about sexual orientation or threats of violent or sexual attack, excessive chat spam, personal attacks; above all use common sense.
  • No stream cheating (viewing opponents stream during a match), this will result in a DQ.
  • No use of 3rd party programs (zoom mod, map hack, etc.) that gives you an unfair advantage against your opponent. Guilty parties will be DQ’d and banned from attending further events.
  • Collusion will not be tolerated, any guilty parties will be DQ’d and barred from this event and attending further events.
  • No bulletins allowed at all (if used your match will be voided and may be
  • DQ’d.)
  • No Mirror Matches (very simple).
  • Referees reserve the right to ask you to change your name at any time for any reason.
  • THE REFEREES DECISION ON ANY MATTER IS FINAL


Match rules


  • Tournament matches will consist of best of three(3) that's it.
  • In game one of each Bo3, the highest seeded player gets faction choice. For each game after in the round the players alternate factions until a winner is determined.
  • If no winner is determined after round two, faction choice for the final round will be deferred to the player who held the most overall victory points in the previous games combined in that round.


Anti-Cheat


There are two methods of anti-cheat used in my organized events, and you are required to use one of them:
  • Method 1 - Use Screenshotter:
    Players will be required to use Screenshotter v3 during their matches to take screenshots at random intervals. You can download Screenshotter from here.

  • Method 2 - Stream your matches:
    If you choose to stream you are required to post a link to your stream in the sign-up thread so referees can check your channel periodically.


Replays


The winner must submit his replays to BinaryBeast for a match win to be legitimized. All players must save all their replays. A referee can ask for one whenever and wherever they choose. Make sure you have them as you may lose a dispute, or if deemed appropriate, be DQ’d

Streaming


Streaming matches is encouraged if you have the ability to do so, both as an anti-cheat and for the enjoyment of the community. You are however required to password your stream if you are participating in any game that is going to be casted. Passwords for your stream during this time should be given to referees ONLY.

Check-ins


Check-ins will begin thirty(30) minutes before the tournament (I recommend you get there even earlier if you can.)

Instant link to the Steam Chat Room for check-ins and to find your opponents or ask any questions you may have.

Just copy it in your browser:
steam://friends/joinchat/103582791434323041

Or go to the group and Join Chat http://steamcommunity.com/groups/tfncasts

Use the same steam name you signed up with or you may not get properly matched which could result in DQ.
