Gears of War 3 Official Tournament Rules

1. The CGS Bracket will be double elimination and consist of 4 rounds.

2. Once one Team wins 4 rounds, the Match is over.

3. After losing a Match, Teams will fall into the Loser's Bracket.

4. A Match loss in the Loser's Bracket will result in elimination from the Playoff Bracket.

5. If a match is not played and neither team is present, it will be the Judges’ decision on which team wins and loses.

6. Teams will be given 3 minutes to prepare for a match. If a team does not show up on time, they are considered forfeit.

7. Smack talk is allowed, but should not be excessive. Every player has 2 warning before they are ejected from the match.

8. Each team is limited to 4 players! Each of the 4 player must be registered in order to form a complete team.

9. If there are any complications such as disc freeze, power outage, etc. The match will be replayed, however if there are intentional disconnections, such as rage quitting, the team is either disqualified or if it is just one player he is ejected.

10. Last rule (more of a statement) Good luck and have fun! Try to show good sportsmanship!

Please allow hammerburst, as far as the online community goes the use of the hammerburst is high and most would agree that its not OP. Thoughts anyone?

Yeah, I had to take the Hammerburst out. Personally that is my weapon of choice, but I'm basically going by Alpha/MLG rules.

I'm assuming we are allowed to bring our own personal controllers? And I would also like to know as well what version we will be playing as alot of the more recent title updates have drastically changed balances on weapons.

Will we be allowed to spectate with the ghost camera and help our team after we die? Either way idc it'd just be nice to know.

Gears of War will be updated to it's most current update. As far as bringing your own controller, because of the time it takes to sync to an xbox. There are just alot of complications with that. We have TV's with speakers and we do have some headsets, however you may bring your own headsets. Team communication is pivotal, however once you are dead you may not help other teammates that are in battle. Once you die, you must switch to another character immediately. You may still talk to them but you may not use ghost cam to give off the other teams location.

Yes you can bring wired controllers, I meant to add that in there. As long as it's not a wireless controller, you can bring your own controller.

Wait a sec.. xD
No ghost cam, got it. But we can't tell our teammates the location of the enemy if we see them on their view? Just making sure I know. :P

That is correct, once you die you may not use ghost cam. However you may still communicate with your teammates after you have died.

Also just a heads up, classic stalemates will be off. Meaning if one team has more players alive than the other, that team will win. However if the amount is equal it will still result in a stalemate.

Thanks for your participation everyone, I hope this year turns out as amazing as all the participants and attendees! :D
