Now announcing the Great Northern Monthly Starcraft 2 2v2 Tournament!
After a wonderful, warm response from the SC2 community on TL regarding my 2v2 tournament held on the 2nd of March, I have decided to expand my horizons. In the next block I will do my very best to answer any questions you may have!
** Please make sure to either private message myself or post on the thread with your teammate and who you are signed up on binary beast under! The cutoff date for confirmation will be Thursday March 28th. Upon receiving the details I will mark your team as confirmed. Thanks. **
Where and how much does it cost to sign up?
There is no sign up cost and all teams must sign up on the Tournament 2v2 Sign Up website under either one player's name which will be confirmed or as a team. For example: Holybeardman/Holybeardwoman.
What is the prize pool?
Currently I will be putting up $100 distributed as $70, $20 and $10 for 1st 2nd and 3rd respectively. Please note all prize funds will be in $CDN and sent via paypal marked as gift.

Please note * to designate 2v2 only rules
-All teams will meet in the GreatNorthernSC2 GROUP on NA Server to set up for matches.
-Teams must consist of exactly two (2) players, no substitutions will be permitted without just cause and notification**.
-All matches will be played using the most recently released version of the game.
-Players must provide their own valid Starcraft II Battle.net account.
-Any team found using third party add-ons, altered game files, or modified drivers that changes the game mechanics or provides an unfair advantage will be disqualified from the tournament.
-It is the team's responsibility to be aware of, and follow the posted schedule for the tournament. Failure to be available on time or leaving before all your games are played could result in a game forfeit or tournament disqualification.
-Matches have assigned start times, and any team that has not checked in and cannot be found within 15 minutes of the posted time will forfeit that match. Match start times will be updated as the tournament progresses, depending on how quickly we get through the games. It is the team's responsibility to be aware of times of their matches.
-Two (2) forfeits during the tournament, either intentional or unintentional will be taken as a team's refusal to play and they will be disqualified immediately.
-In the case of battle.net, network, computer or power failure, any affected matches will be restarted from the Resume Replay function.
-Either team in a match may restart the match once within the first minute (60s) for any reason.
Should a game be restarted from the beginning, the new match will be played on the same map with the same races as the aborted match. Should a player have selected a random race for the aborted match, they will then pick the same race as was chosen for them by the randomizer.
-Any Team may dispute the results of one (1) of their matches during the tournament. They must do so immediately upon completion of the match before starting any further matches, and provide the tournament organizers with a replay file and the reason for disputing the match results. The case will then be adjudicated by multiple tournament officials and the results either deemed valid, force a rematch, or reversed entirely at the discression of the tournament officials. The officials may request a replay from any players involved in the match. Since replays are recorded automatically, failing to produce your replay file will likely result in unfavorable judgement.
-There will be no communication (either battle.net or otherwise) with players outside of the game while a match is in progress, and any conversation with an opponent must remain civil.
-Teams will be seeded based on current sc2ranks as well as consideration for personal achievements.
-All rounds up until the last round will be BO3, with the final being a BO5
