In all seriousness, after the great success of the ESL 2v2 Tournament, RtN are hosting an invitation tournament aimed at allowing players from all timezones to participate. Be you milking cows in the bog lands of Ireland or doing Russian things in Russia, there is a whole week for teams to schedule each round's games, ensuring that everyone will be able to find a date that suits.
The tournament will run from the 10th of March to the 30th of March. Each round is Best of Three, maps decided by veto. All commanders and bulletins allowed. In order to provide the most entertainment possible, the games will be shoutcasted by the usual suspects - more details coming soon. If you feel like you're the next big thing, just waiting to be discovered, send CoH2Tournaments@gmail.com an e-mail. There are still plenty of games needing casters.
RtN report that are using this tournament to create an initial impression, check the settings and rules, and estimate the workload. They assure us that future tournaments will be open to all comers!
Schedule (Monday to Sunday):
Round of 8: 10th to 16th March
Round of 4: 17th to 23rd March
Final: 24th to 30th March
Currently the tournament is invitational, but since two teams just notified us that they cannot participate, those slots are open. If you think you have what it takes, feel free to send us an e-mail, CoH2Tournaments@gmail.com

Each team will get one veto (top team starts). The top team will then choose the first map and faction they want to play from the remaining map pool. Afterwards their opponent can either play the same map with reversed factions or choose the faction on the second map. If it comes to a decider round, the team with more VP will choose one of the two not played faction/map combinations.

- Mode: COH2, 2v2 fixed positions, Best of 3, Invitational
