3* All disconnect and leave complaints must be sent in within 48 hours of the game being played.

4* No smurf accounts.  Your account must be played with your known ID in it.  If you are found out to be smurfing, you will be disqualified and no further participation in the tournament will be allowed.  If you are worried about which ID you should use, PM LRM)Game at LRM)Gayme on iccup.com.  If you feel that not smurfing gives you an unfair disadvantage, you must appeal to LRM)Game at LRM)Gayme on iccup.com.  We will then give you a predetermined smurf name.  Failure to comply will lead to disqualification.

5* All names must begin with ISL.  Ex: ISL-Joekim ISL_nOoNe [ISL]Sayle.

9* No hacking or abusing.  This is very very basic.  No multiple or shared accounts.  No letting other players on your accounts.  No taking free wins from friends.  No selling wins.  No playing against your own account.  If suspected of abuse, failure to comply with ISL staff will result in a disqualification from the tournament.

I gotta say the same. It's amazing to have this tournaments when SC2 is running and all that stuff

avatar #3 PL SC1f.drej 06 Feb 2011 @ 22:16 CET

Great event! GJ! It's time to play real Starcraft ONE!

avatar #4 n-a 06 Feb 2011 @ 22:18 CET

So this is going to be a 60 man tournament?

avatar #5 n-a 06 Feb 2011 @ 22:24 CET

56 in brackets = 14 brackets. 2 advance from each bracket = 28. 28 + 4 predetermined = ro32.

avatar #6 CA Nero[AoV] 06 Feb 2011 @ 22:28 CET

ah ok. makes more sense now

avatar #7 HU fazek42 06 Feb 2011 @ 22:28 CET

I am at a loss of words to describe how happy I am! This is so great - thank you so much to whoever is sponsoring this: I'm proud of you, BW community :) Thank you ICCup, Sayle and the entire crew behind this: you're doing a wonderful job. It makes me feel very happy to see that the BW community just keeps going on in midst of all this SC2 badness. So how did you guys get this together? Will there be many good players? 700$ is quite a bit of money to compete for :)

avatar #8 n-a 06 Feb 2011 @ 22:51 CET

Well I was inspired to start seeking out sponsors after I saw a lot of "BW Revival" threads. I know as a good player that there are a LOT of good players still playing, even if not on their main names or ICCup. So I seeked out sponsorship for the AoV Invitational, and it was a huge success. The second I saw it's success I organized this within a week and sought after large sponsors and organized it. Now that I have organized it with the generous donations of the sponsors, we as well as the immense help from ICCup staff will enforce rules and run the tournament.

avatar #9 GB EleGant[AoV] 06 Feb 2011 @ 22:57 CET

Let's go BroodWar!!

avatar #10 PL gNs.Messer 06 Feb 2011 @ 23:08 CET

Does invited players knows about being invited? :) I'm just curious if maybe I'm one of them :D Also post in tl.net says about some oldschool player (inactive?). Is he already chosen?

avatar #11 n-a 06 Feb 2011 @ 23:24 CET

Yes I already know the 4 invited... I organized it. Yes I know the old player, yes I know any other surprises.

avatar #12 CA [KiDCaNaDa] 06 Feb 2011 @ 23:15 CET

Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament to see who the 4 invited are!!!

Oh and do you guys have a rough estimate of what the minimum rank is going to be to qualify?

avatar #19 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 01:01 CET

nice!! gl all

avatar #20 DE ISL.Telsa 07 Feb 2011 @ 01:32 CET

ready to fight! :)

avatar #21 SE Bd.ZeKk 07 Feb 2011 @ 02:08 CET

Sounds good, but what does this rule really mean? "The absolute and most important rule is that LRM)Game holds full discretion over ISL decisions."

avatar #22 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 02:24 CET

Exactly what it says. The ultimate decision for anything ISL related belongs to myself only.

avatar #23 SE Bd.ZeKk 07 Feb 2011 @ 03:04 CET

So you can just do as you want then. It sounds a bit scary that you can just end up abusing things to anything you want..just saying.

avatar #24 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 03:40 CET

Thank you for accusing me of abuse before a tournament starts, appreciate it. What's your ISL name again? (sarcasm for the sensitive fags out there) Anyway, all tournaments in BW ever have had one person making decisions, were you also calling them scary and abusers?

avatar #25 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 03:43 CET

First of all, I don't really see any reason to do so on his part. Secondly, should he do anything abusive, I think he is very well aware that everybody would turn against him and he would get banned from pretty much everything bw-related except this one tournament. Point being that I don't think that would ever be in his interest. So with no motive and a horrible outcome of such action, I don't think we have to worry about such things. :)

Lastly, there pretty much have to someone who can take a decision in a tournament like this. Hopefully it'll be the right decision, but even if it isn't, it's still better than no decision or endless discussion. After all, it is their tournament, and since they agreed on this system, we don't really have anything to say in this matter. :)

As you see by my name, I'm ready to destroy everyone in this awesome tournament. Thanks to everybody who has made this possible!

avatar #26 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 03:55 CET

One more thing. Are we allowed to play with all players? Or only with other ISLers?

avatar #27 CA Safina[AoV] 07 Feb 2011 @ 04:12 CET

the head admin should never be a guy who is planning on playing.... conflict of interest anyone? glad I didnt sponsor this.

avatar #28 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 07:54 CET

because messer is head admin, right ?

im glad someone who is totally out of the loop didn't sponsor this tournament

avatar #31 CA Safina[AoV] 07 Feb 2011 @ 09:38 CET

ok obviously i used the wrong term, i dont mean u either. I am talking about LRM)Game. He said he is basically god of tournament. He's a good player and will obviously make rd32 but wut if something occurs where he and opponent dont agree? not very fair imo. If he wants to be in charge of this he shouldnt be allowed 2 play in it.

avatar #32 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 09:52 CET

Man is this a problem canada vs usa ? i really dont see the bad thing.the tour not started and u scared of lrm)game,funny

avatar #33 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 19:47 CET

It is rather funny that the same tournament you were very BM in and ragequit after from I played in, and ran quite smoothly. Not only will I be too busy heading the running of this tournament, but credibility really isn't my issue. I feel no need to defend myself from any pre-accusation such as that... that's just retarded. If I wanted money, I would just take the money and run. If I wanted to abuse, it would be suicide, I could never log on BW again due to e-lynching. Think logically before you outright accuse me of something. Not only am I dedicating around 40 hours a week to this tournament, but literally single handedly put this together.

avatar #34 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 10:47 CET

You ron, shhh. Safi, I'll take care if it, He's not head of everything, Game, decisions will go through me as well. I'll make sure this event is 100% fair.

avatar #35 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 12:30 CET

We wouldn't have sponsored it if we didn't think it was going to be fair :). Everything's gonna go smoothly for sure.

avatar #36 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 12:51 CET

Are Koreans allowed to join this tourney? The rule said no Korean IP....

avatar #37 GB EleGant[AoV] 07 Feb 2011 @ 16:04 CET

If you have an IP address from within Korea, you will not be allowed into the tournament- it's a foreigner tournament.

avatar #38 PL Mewman 07 Feb 2011 @ 12:52 CET

So anybody who wants to participate just have to join that team yea ?

avatar #39 GB EleGant[AoV] 07 Feb 2011 @ 14:26 CET

Yup, and you will be added shortly before the event begins.

avatar #40 PL Mewman 07 Feb 2011 @ 15:06 CET


avatar #41 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 13:25 CET

This is really awesome event and props to all organizing this for BW. I really hope we can bring bw alive and have more similar tournaments. I will participate just to show my support, but i won't be able to qualify. I am really looking forward for the cast, believe Sayle will do good job!

avatar #42 BE sas.Ghost 07 Feb 2011 @ 14:23 CET

Looking great, best of luck everybody.

And a big thank you to the sponsors/organization ofcourse!

avatar #43 BY Griffin39 07 Feb 2011 @ 17:44 CET

thank you for your decision

avatar #44 BY Griffin39 07 Feb 2011 @ 17:46 CET

and btw when the tournament stops there will be lots and lots of great replays

avatar #45 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 18:12 CET

"severe punishment"? Relax, it's just a video game, spending some time in prison is "severe"... :)

avatar #46 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 19:44 CET

haha ^^

avatar #47 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 18:34 CET

Thanks to everyone who had a part in the organization aspect, hopefully it'll all run smoothly, don't see why it wouldn't. Good luck to all, I'll be participating in this for sure.

avatar #48 BG SlayerS_BoxioR 07 Feb 2011 @ 20:27 CET

i want play in this tournament, pls u added my account

avatar #49 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 21:52 CET

Great work. Thanks for the dedication.

I will be playing and it will be a lot of fun.

avatar #50 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 22:04 CET

ok admin, u added i'm in tournament.. i'm is B- :)

avatar #51 n-a 07 Feb 2011 @ 23:49 CET

Due to a flood of PMs and good players even thinking this is private... this is a public tournament, anyone non-korean can participate.

avatar #52 KR OutOfScan 08 Feb 2011 @ 00:25 CET

Computer skills only refers to graphics and art? Or do you need other things as well?

avatar #55 n-a 08 Feb 2011 @ 07:43 CET

tournament started tomorow ? :P

avatar #56 n-a 08 Feb 2011 @ 09:58 CET

Question: Do we ladder only against other ISL players or against everyone?

avatar #57 n-a 08 Feb 2011 @ 17:47 CET

The tournament is open to the public, therefore you can play vs the public. Playing any player is at your own risk.

avatar #58 SE PiQLiQ 08 Feb 2011 @ 11:17 CET

Looks interesting :)

avatar #59 SE Megashira[AoV] 08 Feb 2011 @ 12:38 CET

It's the same as in TSL, ladder stage is vs everyone.

avatar #60 n-a 08 Feb 2011 @ 20:39 CET

ask players to save their reppacks too!

avatar #61 SE PiQLiQ 08 Feb 2011 @ 22:22 CET

I think i will participate actually :)

avatar #62 BG Animus 08 Feb 2011 @ 23:10 CET

This is great, thank you for keeping BroodWar alive!

Cant wait to watch the casts :)

avatar #63 HU fazek42 09 Feb 2011 @ 17:23 CET

+1 to reppacks, and also I'm not quite sure whether this is the right place to say it, but I really would appreciate some FPVods. I mean obviously, people won't record their FP View during a prestigious tournament like this (or would they? using the recorder program might cause some problems) but it would be great for us lower level people to actually see more FPVods (like the ones Stylish used to make). If we are to keep this community alive, we need newer players to pick up the pace and what better way is there than to show us the real gosu players do stuff. Not only would it be extremely exciting to see some of these matches in first person, it would, in my opinion, be quite educational. So would anybody be willing to record their FPVODs? :)

avatar #64 DE ISL_Resh 09 Feb 2011 @ 17:34 CET

just awesome :)

hope i get better through ladder

avatar #65 n-a 09 Feb 2011 @ 23:20 CET

Wow this tournament seems to have spiked up activity on BW. Great Job, glad this seems to be off to a good start. Also @ JoeKim I have some photoshop skills(dunno if thats what you meant). I would gladly help with anything that is needed. Just PM me if you need my help.

avatar #66 US EmeraldCoast 10 Feb 2011 @ 00:53 CET

Very innovative way to revive the BW community! Another good idea may be to preselect sponsors to cast commercials during the livestream finals (not sure if livestream will permit). I think that the public needs to know how supportive the BW community is and how effective we can be. Proving that the BW community can sustain itself will be a huge boost in image for the community and also attract more potential sponsors. Just a few ideas for a community that I have always cared about! GG GL HF!

avatar #67 n-a 10 Feb 2011 @ 02:38 CET

Yeah,i think in the breaks of semifinal msl sayle will publicity the ISL,but need a vod :( trailer

I also think it's very important to show our support towards our sponsors. If there is anything we can do, don't hesitate to let us know!
