    Basic rules:

    1. To play you'll need Soulstorm 1.2 at the very least (aka current Steam version). Obviously you'll want more races unlocked than just bolter bitches/dark eldar, though.
    2. There will be an actual league structure with playoffs and semis. The ladder will depend on the final player count, but it will most likely be 2 top players from their playoff divisions progressing forward to the (quarter/)semi/finals.
    3. "Matches" will be resolved by way of best of 3 games. The player that wins two games against another player wins the match (and gains 1 point for playoffs).
    4. You must be able to play at least 1 full match a week. However, keep in mind that Dawn of War is not that much of a time commitment, especially compared to something like Blood Bowl, so a full match will rarely take longer than an hour (although this will depend a lot on the relative skillz of the contestants).
    5. To prevent spergs being unable to start games due to endless "counterpicking" in lobby, you'll be limited to only 2 races for the entire tournament. 1st race you'll play in your 1st game, 2nd in 2nd game - 3rd game as you see fit (still within the same 2 races). Should this lead to mirror matches, the race orders for one of the players can be changed (because mirror matches are uncool).
    6. First game map will be fixed (as in assigned randomly during league seeding). Second and third game maps will be picked by losers of the previous games.
    7. Since many 1v1 maps in DOW are not very cool, the following list of halal gudmaps will apply for the entire tournament:
    Battle Marshes, Blood River, Fata Morga, Frazier's Demise, Frostbite River, Meeting of Minds, Moonbase, Quest's Triumph, Shrine of Excellion, Titan's Fall, Tranquility's End
    8. Remember to save all game replays so that they may be inspected if accusations of foul play arise.
    9. Situations not covered by the rules will be dealt with using common sense.
    10. To apply, provide the following information:
    Steam name - timezone (in GMT format) - First race/Second race (can be changed before tournament start)

    I'm on an actual spaceship. No joke.
    Don't close signups early, I'll prolly wait until the last second as I've only ever played with SPESS MEHREENZ so far. Need time to grind.

    Oops, didn't notice that rule initially. How strict is it? I'm going to live as an outcast in the wilderness, only armed with an axe, a boat and a tent for 10 consecutive days with no internet access and computer whatsoever (end july - early august). Can we postpone/reschedule in that case? Or is it an automatic loss?

    It's 'k, we'll figure something out once this happens.

    I mean FWIW the possibility is that this tourney will be done already by that point :M

    I dont use no camera mod.

    Annihilate, control area, take and hold victory objectives.

    Standard starting resources and resource rate, no cheats, insane AI difficulty.

    Leptitbourg - East (GMT-4)* - Space Marine/SOB

    * I am always unsure about that system. I live in Montreal in all cases, should be same as eastern USA.

    EDIT: Also, I am sorry for whoever will play against me, but I have a horrible working schedule and it might be difficult for me to adapt.

    EDIT 2: Added my second RACE choice after some game against computers.

    EDIT 3: After having my ass handed over by RK and doing some more game, I changed my second race.
