June Fast Cup – less than 48 hours to go!
Time’s running up, get in the loop
We’re getting even closer to the prime hour – just a few steps (and days, on that note) away from June Fast Cup.
The number of team applicants has skyrocketed up to 90 – times and times more than the last time around. Seeing as everyone’s quite excited about the event, we don’t want to leave anyone out. So even though we’ve previously mentioned the tournament was limited to 64 teams only, we’ll be increasing that limit by adding an additional bracket right up before the tournament. As such, all 90+ teams that have applied will be able to participate.
To sum it up, we’ll begin from the round of 64 instead of the round of 32, without changing the times of the tournament. The first preliminary matches will be handled relatively quickly, so we’ll get on to the main part of the event in no time. Besides, if you haven’t registed and still want to give it a shot – this is precisely your only chance, register here while you have the chance!
As a reminder, the registration ends today (01/JUN/17) at 21:00 UTC (23:00 CEST).
Once we have all the team applicants confirmed, the status will change and the grid will be formed – as well as the schedule. This is precisely the time you need to get acquainted with the esports.my.com tournament page and read up on the rules once again.
In order to smoothen out all the edges of coordination it is highly advised for all team captains to get on Discord and come around on the official channel. Contact Marshal#9326 in Direct messages as well, and provide your esports.my.com name, Discord and Skype log-in if you want to have it listed for the Tournament server when it’s set up.
Let’s walk over the benefits of being on Discord:
· The hands down fastest way to resolving your problems without a doubt
· The easiest way to communicate with the refs, the other team captain if need be and resolve disputes
· The easiest way to transfer files and keep track of the brackets as they’re reflected in the group channel that you’re in
· An ability to list your team member’s preferences on the character set they want to receive right as the tournament comes to an end (the rewards will be handed out when the winners are announced)
Here’s the catch – we will be opening the Tournament server tomorrow for a test run, and only those teams whose captains are identified on Discord will be able to get on the server with their teams. So if you want to make sure in advance that everything’s working fine for you and your teammates, and want to “give the grounds a test drive” – be around.
One more thing! If you’re a streamer – whether an experienced one or just an aspiring beginner – this is your chance to shine as we’ve got a couple of spots left. So if you think you’re up to streaming in English – feel free to hit Pask160#8730 up in Discord and get signed up for it!
