Ladies and Gentlemen, As Uber have managed to hype up their next patch to never-before-seen levels with all their livestreams and sneak previews, I think we all need a good outlet for our excitement. Therefore, I propose to host, with assistance from others, a tournament to celebrate the first patch of 2014. Assuming it is released this side of the weekend, I propose to host a one-night-only tournament on Saturday 18th January, starting at 1900hrs UTC. I have created a Google Doc for the purpose of monitoring tournament progress - it is presently set to read-only, so I'd ask that all those interested in participating in this tournament respond with their interest below and I will populate it accordingly. Details: Prizes are subject to change for now - will remove this notice when they are firm 1st Prize: 70,000 DogeCoins and a $10 Google Play card voucher 2nd Prize: 30,000 DogeCoins Sponsors: TheWrongCat: 50,000 DOGE Clopse: 50,000 DOGE evilOlive $10 Google Play card I have initially set this up for a maximum of 16 participants, however if more than 25 people respond expressing interest in participating, I will increase to 32 slots. EDIT: There are now 32 slots! Slots will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and we will accommodate stand-ins for the first round in case of no-shows. All matchmaking will take place in the Planetary Annihilation IRC channel, linked to in the spreadsheet. To keep things moving smoothly, there will be an arbitrary 45-minute grace period to match up with your opponent. Extensions may be granted on an individual basis, however the final decision will lay with the 'officials' helping to run the tournament. Details regarding map requirements and any in-game rules TBC pending judgement after patch release.

I'll keep this top post updated with any changes / additional info.
