Sign-ups and checking-in:
Sign-ups are now open in this topic. The first 64 players that have a valid sign-up will have a 'secured' spot. All other players will be placed on the waiting-list. On tournament day all players will have to check in. To do this, join the COH2.ORG steamgroup chatroom. Simply post the following message in there: '<Playername> checking in'. We'll provide a list on where you can see if you've been confirmed by the referees. Check-in period will open at 14:00 GMT and will stay open for 90 minutes, so until 15:30 GMT. After that we'll make the brackets and you can start your games. Don't worry if you're on the waiting list, there is always a number of 'no-shows,' so chances are you'll be able to play if you check-in.
Make a match-thread in the Events Central forums after the brackets have been released. The threads have to be named like this: "R1: PlayerA vs. PlayerB." Use this topic to get in touch with your opponents and the referees. After your games have been played, post the result of your series in the same thread. Include the score, the winner, and provide the replay of the game(s). Upload the replays to our REPLAYS system on COH2.ORG.
The Sunday Night Fights crew of Yoink, AmiPolizeiFunk, and ntd will bring you a selection of games from the final day, on Sunday August 4th at 6pm GMT (7pm BST, 8pm CEST, 11am PDT). Join us on http://www.twitch.tv/sundaynightfights. Hopefully we will be joined by a guest analyst, TBA. Five (5) additional copies of the Soviet Commander: Mechanized Support Tactics, as well as a signed copy of Chris Velasco's Company of Heroe 2 Soundtrack, will be raffled off to channel followers!
Good luck, have fun!
