Actually that works out even better for me as that puts me at 4 people on the 8th and 4 on the 15th at this point. So you did me a favor by moving up.

Within the next two to three days.

Basically what I'm doing is asking everyone who might be interested one by one, as I want to give everyone an opportunity to participate. I have a number of people yet to ask.

It does turn out that I will actually be gone for a large portion of the day on the 8th, so I'm going to try to ask a couple of my other BGNers who probably won't be participating to fill in that day. Honestly though, there isn't exactly a ton to do anyways except for watching the games and reporting who the final two in each group are. Although if there is a SC:S person that's willing to help out I'd definitely be willing to take on the help.

Also, to those of you that aren't participating in the actual tournament, perhaps you'd be interested in helping out with the broadcasts of the final series. I'm more than willing to give up my role of play by play guy and serve as a general host to the tournament show. All you really need is Teamspeak, a microphone and your opinions. We've done it in many different formats in the past:

1. Standard 2 person broadcast(play by play, analyst)
2. Standard 1 person broadcast
3. 3 person broadcast
4. Team Broadcasts: Essentially based on the concept of sports radio, where each team will bring their own radio crew in to cover a game. So one broadcasting team would cover it from player a's perspective and the other team would cover it from player b's perspective.

Don't get me wrong, they haven't exactly been the most polished or greatest things in the world. However, they have been a lot of fun and I think it brought some life to the party too.

Hard to believe a simple question would lead to that answer. :P

Default BGN Invitational 7 Groups/Matchups

BGN Invitational 7 Groups:

I decided just to make things easier and cap it at the 8 people that I had already. We'll start getting more people in the future once the craziness of every day life starts to wind down a bit. Interestingly enough we have 4 BFers and 4 BGNers. The odd part is that we have 3 BFers and 1 BGNer in the group on the 8th and 3 BGNers and 1 BF player on the 15th.

Remember that in each group, we are playing double elimination. The first four series are bo3 with the final game to determine the runner up in each group will be a single game on Tau.

Here are your groups and the initial bracket:

Feb. 8:

Channel: op BGN
Match Start Time: 3:00 PM EST
Arrival Time: 2:45 PM EST

Match 1: SuperKiller vs Roegi(bo3)
Match 2: Benny vs Desastroso(bo3)
Match 3: Match 1 vs Match 2 Winners[Match 3 Winner Advances To Semifinals](bo3)
Match 4: Match 1 Loser vs Match 2 Loser[Loser is eliminated](bo3)
Elimination Game 5: Match 3 Loser vs Match 4 Winner(Single Game on Tau)
[Winner advances to semifinals]

Feb. 15:

Channel: op BGN
Match Start Time: 3:00 PM EST
Arrival Time: 2:45 PM EST

Match 1: Lousy.Cheesy vs Loophole(bo3)
Match 2: FatBoySr vs TheHawaiian(bo3)
Match 3: Match 1 vs Match 2 Winners[Match 3 Winner Advances To Semifinals](bo3)
Match 4: Match 1 Loser vs Match 2 Loser[Loser is eliminated](bo3)
Elimination Game 5: Match 3 Loser vs Match 4 Winner(Single Game on Tau)
[Winner advances to semifinals]

Elimination Round:

(the dates for these matches are up to the players as I will be willing to adapt them as needbe. Below is what I was originally thinking.)

Sunday, February 22nd - Blizzard Gaming Night(just relax, hype up the semifinals, etc..)

Sunday, March 1st - Semifinals Day(bo5 matches)
*These could be done the day of BGN, but I figured people might just want to enjoy playing the series of games for that. If so, we could then also push the championship series up to the 1st. I'm not picky either way.*

Semifinal Series 1: Feb. 8th Group Winner vs Feb. 15th Group Runner Up(bo5) @ 3:00 PM EST
Semifinal Series 2: Feb. 8th Group Runner Up vs Feb. 15th Group Winner(bo5) @ 3:00 PM EST

Sunday, March 8th - Championship Series(bo7)
(again all times can be adjusted back as needbe)
Semifinal Series 1 Winner vs Semifinal Series 2 Winner @ 3:00 PM EST
Championship Series Pre-Game Show would be live on the TS Server @ ~2:30 PM EST.

Full instructional details are available at http://www.swoopzone.net/bgninv7/. For the map pack, most people will have all of the maps if you have the iccup pack.

Should be fun.

Yeah, it's on East. Sorry Roegi, someone had to take on SK first. Remember though it's double elimination.
