Its that time again, the CLWO Competitive Event for the Summer season for 2018
We are running a 1v1 Knockout event & a Major 5v5 Group event this year.
Please keep an eye on the main post for any updates or changes missed.
*** NOTE: Applications are open until 8th June. Games are able to begin from the 15th June up until 29th June 2018, with the 3rd & 4th July being the Semi-Finals & Finals. ***
(There may be changes at any moment without prior notice)
These are the important bits you'll need to know:
- Blacklisted players are NOT allowed to enter / play in this event. The CLWO Blacklist plugins will be in effect, so blacklisted members will be unavailable to join this event. In addition, if you are steamrep banned / reported as a cheater, you will also NOT be eligible to join the server & unable to compete in the event.
- The CLWO General rules applies to each tournament. Any trolling / mis-behaviour / racism etc will lead to disqualifications or even suspensions / blacklists from the community. - The tournament administrator(s) (Currently LakiM) & Main CLWO Senators (Square, MrGibbyGibson, Classy, iNilo) have the ability to disqualify any applications, forfeit any matches (within reason) or make changes to the tournament at any moment.
- If you are blacklisted during the tournament / disqualified, all matches will receive a loss to your name & the opponent(s) will take the win. This applies to 1v1. 5v5 is allowed to play as 4v5, unless the team finds a replacement that is APPROVED by LakiM due to the blacklisted player. For example, if the player that was blacklisted/disqualified was a LEM (skill leveled) player, the player that is a replacement cannot be same skill level as blacklisted/disqualified player. LakiM will make this decision.
- If you decide to not turn up to a match because you "don't feel like it", or decide to "forfeit yourself" without a valid reason, you will receive a suspension from future tournaments & the possibility of a blacklist. (Main CLWO Senators will make this decision.)
- All registrations will need to be accepted by the Tournament Administrators in order to play, this applies to both the 1v1 and 5v5. I will leave a post with your name / team name once you have registered to let you know if your team is eligible to compete.
- Once your team is registered & eligible, I will need to add each player & confirm they are wanting to play for that team. Once all members confirm, no swapping or changes are allowed.
- Eligible team=All participants are community members of CLWO, LakiM and Main CLWO Senators will decide who are eligible and who arent.
We've updated the Anti-Cheat system this time, as we do each time, to the best system possible. We are now using EAC's Client-Side system to be run for each game. You can download Easy Anti-Cheat from the steam store (for free) here - Run this program first, and then open CS:GO, and then join the server as soon as you get the details, for the anti-cheat to work. NOTE: If you don't have the anti-cheat running, you will be removed from the session until it runs.
The Major 5v5 Group Event:
The 5v5 event this year will allow as many groups to register, and will allow each team to face each team once to build points towards the final. You will gain 3 points for a win and 0 points for a loss (no draws available, as there will be a repetitive BO6 Overtime) which will go towards your team. Each game will get a map-veto & will be a BO1. The top 4 teams will qualify for the final shootout, where 1st place will get first pick & face 3rd place finishers, and 2nd place will get first pick & face 4th place finishers, both being a BO3 match, following to the final match, where the winner of 1st/3rd place will get first pick & will also be a BO3, to crown the champion.
The 1v1 Knockout Event:
The 1v1 Knockout event will consist of 3 maps, like the previous events. 1 AK/M4 Map, 1 AWP Map & 1 Pistol map as a decider. Registrants will be put in a list, in order from registering to the event, added to the challonge list in the same order, and will be shuffled 5 times to decide the matches. Some players may need to play an additional game to qualify to the main first round, dependent on the amount of players that register.
The application is only required by the captain of the team / individual. If you are in a team, but would like to register yourself to the 1v1 event too, only submit the 1v1 application as your 5v5 will already be entered.

I will be looking to stream the 1v1 and 5v5 Semi-Finals & Finals on Twitch, keep an eye out ;)
Hello fellow community members, I have seen a great interest in chess from many members of the community and is why I have decided to run the first CLWO chess tournament. NOTE: Applications are open until Friday 9th March. Games are able to begin from the 10th March 2018 up until 16th March 2018, with the 17th & 18th March 2018 being the Semi-Finals & Finals. Note: (Exceptions and changes may be made depending on the number of players).
These are the important bits you'll need to know:
- Blacklisted players are NOT allowed to enter/play. - The CLWO General rules apply to the tournament. Trolling/racism etc. will lead to disqualification. If broken to the extreme then it may lead to a blacklist. - If you are blacklisted during the tournament / disqualified, all matches will receive a loss to your name & the opponent(s) will take the win. - If you decide to not turn up to a match because you "don't feel like it" without a valid reason you will be disqualified from the tournament. - If the admins of the tournament decide you are not eligible to play in the tournament you will be informed and will not be able to play. - If you cheat during the tournament you will be disqualified and all matches will receive a loss to your name & the opponent(s) will take the win. The Tournament:
How the tournament is going to work is that there will be two groups. Each player that enters will randomly be put in either Group A or Group B and each group will be evenly split. Each player will play every player from their group once. Then after every game has been played, points will be added up. The top four players from each group will then be put in an elimination bracket where they will be randomly placed against each other. The semi-finals will be BO3s and so will be the final. There will also be a 3rd place playoff where the losers of the semis can play against each other. Point System:
Win - 3 points Draw - 1 point Loss - 0 points
1st Place: 10$ Steam Wallet Voucher
2nd Place: 5$ Steam Wallet Voucher
3rd Place: CSGO Case Key (Of your choice)
To apply for the tournament leave a message below with your IGN and your steam profile link.
Additional Information: - All games will be played on lichess.org. - Sides will be randomly picked. - Set game times will try to be set but if a player cannot attend they can organise a time for the game between themselves. - Each player will have 10 minutes of playing time in a game.

Good Luck to all and may the best win!
