What is a tournament?

A tournament is a short-term competition with a scheduled beginning and a specific end. Players may register to play in a tournament on any League for which they are registered. When the tournament begins, each player is paired up with an opponent (or more than one opponent, depending on the format of the tournament.) Tournaments can be for "LadderStats," in which case the results are reported to the Ladder on which the tournament was played.

How can I find out what tournaments are available on the League?

For a complete list of tournaments for your Ladder or League, visit the Tournament Calendar located on the "Tournaments" tab. You can access the page for a specific tournament by clicking on the jump number. Once you have selected the tournament you would like to join, the information for that tournament will be listed under the 'Tournament Info' heading.

How do I register for a team tournament?

When you click the 'Register' link on a tournament page, detailed instructions will show up on the page to clarify any further questions you may have.
