Ashes Tournament Signups: Only Three Days Left!
Hello Ashes and RTS fans alike! A couple of weeks back we announced the new Turinium Cup, our first official tournament for the RTS game Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation. We could not be happier with the response! Our goal was to aim for around 20 sign ups and we have now hit 15 people who are signed up and ready to go next week!
However, there is still time left before sign ups close at the end of the week, so if you want to test your mettle make sure that you do the following:
There has been some confusion about the scheduling we have for the tournament, so we are going to lay it out again just so everyone is clear:
- We will be running the tournament in two phases:
- Round Robin Pools
- Double Elimination Finals
- Most players will only play on one day, depending on which pool they are in:
- Group 1 (Alpha) – 12th August, 1 PM+ EDT
- Group 2 (Beta) – 13th August, 1 PM+ EDT
- Group 3 (Delta) – 14th August, 1 PM+ EDT
- Group 4 (Omega) – 15th August, 1 PM+ EDT
- If you are amazing enough to win in one of the pools, you will then play in the finals on the 18th.
- The exact times of the matches is flexible, but generally we are aiming to get as many done from 1PM+ EDT as possible.
- Ideally, we ask that you decide which day you want to play on so we can better set placements the weekend before.
At the conclusion of the finals, there can only be one winner of the Turinium Cup. Whilst we will have places for 2nd and 3rd place, only 1st place will get the prize: a choice of any Stardock product, redeemable on a Steam account*.
There will be streams and VODs made of the matches.
So if you want to follow the tournament make sure that you follow us at these places:
* Prize valid for individual titles or DLC ONLY. Bundles are ineligible.
