Last year's tournament at QuakeCon was a huge success. So huge that we've decided to do it again!

Last year's tourney included several qualification free-for-all DM games to quickly narrow down the ranks, followed by 1on1 matches to decide the winners.

We gave away several WireHead Studios casewraps as well as a Koolance case.

Now here's where you come in. What can we do to make this year's tourney even better? We need things like map suggestions and possible prizes. There's also been talk of including several class-restricted rounds into the tourney to make sure the most well-rounded player wins, not just some rabid Doomer or Skippywhore.

Thanks to jess for volunteering to run it this year!

 - All classes open
 - 40 fraglimit, 15 timelimit

 - top 2 scorers advance into the next round

2.5 round: Random FFA
 - Random class ONLY
 - 30 fraglimit, 15 timelimit
 - consists of the player group that does not have 5 people
 - If there is 1 player in this, they get a bye. If players = 2, frag/timelimit = 10.

3rd round: Doomed Wildcard FFA
 - Doom class ONLY
 - All the losers from the 2nd round play for a consolation prize
 - 50 fraglimit, 15 timelimit
 - top 2 scorers get a sticker or something =]
