It's time to open up this year's supply of tournaments.

As has become customary for odd months, January will have an 1v1 tourney on its 31st day, at 09:00 UTC. The registration is open until Friday, January 30th 2015 23:59 UTC, and everyone is welcome to take part regardless of their skill.

Additionally, players can volunteer to substitute for anyone missing after the registration has been closed and before tourney itself starts. Substitutes will be used if the original signed-up players fail to arrive within 30 minutes of start without notice, in order of sign-up, based on this thread.

Tournament rules:
- Single elimination
- First map of each round is predetermined, the following maps will be selected by the loser of the previous game from the featured 1v1 map pool.
- Finals are best of 5, all other matches including the bronze match are best of 3.

The tournament bracket will be seeded randomly after registration closes.

The players coming first, second and third will receive special unique collectible awards to their player profile, and receive tournament points which will at the year's end determine the year's altogether best tournament player.

The starting maps for each round are:
Round 1: EvoRTS-New_Iammas-v05
Round 2: Intersection_v3
Round 3: Comet Catcher Redux
Semifinals: Ravaged_v2
Bronze: MoonQ10x
Finals: OnyxCauldron1.6

You can inspect the tourney bracket at http://zk.challonge.com/zkjan2015

To sign up, post this forum thread and don't forget to show up on time. Pay attention to the timezone, and set a calendar notification that will remind you. If you are going to be late, try to warn about this in advance.

I dont know why you dont just make it an option to sign up via challonge, its much easier than way, anyway I'll sign up but it's 50/50 whether I'll actually be able to play because my internet is really dodgy lately

The audience presented in the picture describes the ever urging excitment that resolves around these tourneys :F
Same goes for the number of racers. There are only 3, wich reflects the number of competitors in the tourney as well.

No automated challonge signups is because like 5 people signed by challonge the previous time and there was an interesting but impractical game of guessing who was whom. And then some of them didn't show up as well.

You're on.

Maybe I'll make it to round two this time!

(Jokes aside, I want to give a massive "thank you" to everyone involved in this decision. The noob-unfriendliness of previous tournament seeding was a big part of the reason I stopped participating)

I'm a bit surprised double elimination wasn't used, as that would have helped with both this problem and the new problem of "finals before finals" that would likely occur due to randomized seeding.

Oh, yeah, I'll also be streaming as usual. Hopefully GBrankAdminSaktoth and NLrank[XIV]Floris will be available as well.

You'd think more people would be eager to sign up with this much cool stuff on offer

I'll sign up as a substitute for now. Depending on happenings between now and then, I may make that a full-blown participation.
