[Reserved for Rules/Guidelines/Procedure]

[color=yellow]I would like all contestants and people involved to get discord (if they don't have it) and join the server by following this link:
https://discord.gg/bpm2B8j


*Note: Since I am giving my own money, I reserve the right to have the final decision in the rules/format.

Note: This is a work in progress, so please discuss.
My preliminary idea is to have an initial phase of 1v1s, followed by a multi-team match phase, and finishing again with 1v1s. I need to get a ballpark of how many players there will be though to see what I have to work with. I would like there to be something fun, exciting, and challenging for everybody (since some player's hate just doing 1v1s).

*Note: Since I am giving my own money, I reserve the right to have the final decision in the rules/format.

Awesome Drone! We should get on Teamspeak sometime (maybe this weekend) and discuss how to do commentaries. I have some ideas for sports graphics I would like to make/insert into commentaries that include passives and stuff that educates the audience.

Sign me up! I'll have to dust off my old Disrhienn tactics...


Also, I'm gonna laugh if butterbread signs up and wins the second-ever FLOPS tournament.

Awesome, for all of you players feeling rusty, you have a month and a half to dust off your skills. Since I am hosting, I will not participate, so I would gladly play anybody who wants to practice.

Welcome back Eufnoc. That's perfectly fine :). You're definitely not alone. In fact, the majority of people here haven't either! Let me know if you need help installing or if you'd like someone to practice with.

IS there a place to actually sign up or we just post here to count us in.
I'm in.
So what you're saying is if there are 100 people that sign up for the tournament, then you are going to give the winner of the tournament $250 bux?

Got you added. Yep just post here that you're in! :) Yep if we can get 101 people I will give the winner a $250 gift card and donate $125 to the project :thumbsup:
