  • Sponsored by HiRez with yet to be determined prizes (will be annouced after draft tournament)
  • First ever official arena tournament sponsored by HiRez and if successful with many more to come. Also potentially offering better prizing as well
  • 2v2 arena tournament sporting explosives only; 2 players max per team
  • Solider ONLY
  • Ideally we would like to have every (or most) of the matches casted
  • Tournament to start on Saturday the 8th of December and run through to Sunday the 9th. If we get a big sign-up roster like draft tourney did than we may need to extend tourney to one more weekend
  • Sign-ups and information all will be posted on natribes.com (e.g. match results, upcoming matches, schedules, announcements, teams, prizes, players to look out for, etc) Also can check HiRez forums to see a post by HiRezAPC
  • It will be a open tournament double elimination styled bracket

    Is it possible to consider Supply Drop (1 per team) on Hinterlands since its the only map with no INV stations? and what’s the ruling on substitutions? Pr-registered team sub or like no subs at all?

    Hey Fig!

    Regarding the inventory station, it is actually something we would (if could) have taken out of the other maps. So Hinterlands having no inventory station is actually perfect. The reason for wanting this is to discourage fight and flight tactics and thus keep a constant flow to the game.

    On the topic of subs. •Substitutions will be allowed but subs must be discussed with a tournament admin prior to a match. This won’t be tolerated for the most part however.

    As for perks, we decided that for this tournament to not restrict most perks. Only safety third and looter are banned because it will help limit grenades and thus spam.

    Here is a short list of other Soldier bans:

    * AP grenade
    * Short-Fuse Frag Grenade
    * Assault Rifle
    * Gast Rifle
    * Eagle Pistol

    You need to put times at the time of the tournament creation please. It is the day before and you know people aren’t going to show up because many people don’t know what time it is starting.

    Additionally I heard that we’re only allowed to use the Energy Pack? Is this true? If so please add it to the rules as well.
