    Starting Friday August 27th, there will be 3 tournaments every weekend:

    Fridays - 8:00 pm Eastern
    Saturdays - 4:00 pm Eastern
    Sundays - 2:00 pm Eastern

    You can join a maximum of two tournaments per weekend - so if you play on Friday and Saturday, you can not play Sunday. Playing throughout the 12 week tour is entirely optional - you can choose to play or not to play whenever you want.

    At the times posted above, a Topic will be posted in the Tour section of the forums. All you need to do to sign up is to post "in." If you are among the first 64 / 128 users to sign up, you will be able to play. You will need to do this for every tournament you wish to play in.

    Each weekend will be the same tier - starting on August 27th, the tier will be OU for that weekend. OU, UU, and Uber will be filtered in and out every three weeks. Again, if you only want to play the OU tournaments, then just wait for the week to be OU.

    After you sign up, pairings will be posted in a few minutes. You are expected to contact your opponent on Shoddy battle and do the battle within 15 minutes of the posting of the pairings. You play until you lose. When you win, you will need to contact the host of the tournament (the person who posted the Topic) on Shoddybattle and tell them you won.

    Hopefully this should answer a lot of questions.

    I want to give the suggestion of possibly getting a separate shoddy server for the tour. Since SU isn't the most desired server for a tournament because of its lag and the other commonly played server CAP has 100 slots, a new server could make it a lot easier to play. It would also make finding your opponent a lot easier.

    Just a little suggestion.

    Looking forward to it.
    Will Shoddy Battle 2 be released publicly before this event? If it isn't and is released during the middle, will we continue to use Shoddy Battle 1 or Shoddy Battle 2 for the remainder of the tour?

    If that happens we're most likely going to use Shoddy Battle 2 to continue. There won't be much differences that would affect it anyways.

    Shoddy Battle?

    This is for Shoddy battle, right? Or is this also for Wi-fi?

    Due to not using any cheats, I'd get powned on Wi-Fi...

    For those of you wondering where to sign up, there will be a sign up thread each day for the tour, and it's first come first serve. You sign up every day you want to join. For example, if you want to join the August 27th tour which is day 1, you would get on here at 8 pm GMT-5 and post "in" in the sign up thread. You are good for that day, but if you want to battle the next day also, you need to sign up again when that tour starts.
