The CLWO Chess Tournament

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).

Important Information:

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

Prizes:

1st Place: 10$ Steam Wallet Voucher

2nd Place: 5$ Steam Wallet Voucher

3rd Place: CSGO Case Key (Of your choice)
