The Shacknews "The Bigs" tournament starts tonight! Currently, we have 15 out of a possible 16 players signed up. The winner will receive a 4,000 point Xbox Live Card! How exciting!
I found a good little freeware bracket program which completely randomizes the bracket and creates a nifty little graphic, so here it is. Since we're one person short as it stands now one player will get a free pass to the second round.
Names shown are Xbox Gamertags. I'll post the shackname/gamertags list in reply so people can message their opponent and set up a time.
Home field advantage will be given to the player on "top" in their bracket. If your name is above your opponent's, you get home field advantage, which means Home game, away game, home game (if necessary). In round two it'll be the bottom player. You need to win two out of three nine inning games on medium difficulty against your opponent to win. The winner should send me a message after the contest is decided so I can scratch off their opponent. You cannot play as an All-Star team. Duh.
Round one of the tournament starts tonight at 7pm central and ends on Monday night at 7pm. This gives people a full three days to play a couple of games. If you must forfeit please send me a message so I can mark your opponent as advancing to the next round. But only a Giant Faggot would actually forfeit considering you have THREE FULL FUCKING DAYS TO PLAY AN HOUR'S OR SO.
Anyway, if you'd like to fill the one open slot just post up. Otherwise everybody should know exactly who they are playing so you should send them a message to get things rolling.
Also I may not be able to play in this tournament if the Pirates beat the Astros due to me fucking killing myself.
