Welcome guys and girls, before you go on and read the (pretty much the same but not exactly) rules and notifications down the page let me address a few words. First of all thank you for considering signing-up for the new nD Monthly War Event, it means you enjoy it and that means I'm doing a good job, if not .... well sorry. As we all know the summer is here, it has a slow start but nonetheless we are feeling how the heat is rising and people need to cool off. So what better way to cool off than a nice friendly, prize awarding, adrenaline pumping WAR EVENT.
This Event will take place between June 28th 2013 and June 30th 2013. Playing time will be in the afternoon between 19:00 GMT +2 and 21:00 GMT +2
Sign-ups are open until 26th June 2013 13:00 GMT+2.
• Playing on 16-bits is forbidden
• The use of the Tactical shield is forbidden.
• Using of bugs is forbidden.
• Moving through walls, floors and roofs is strictly forbidden. This also includes skywalking.
• Silent bombs (ie. The planting of a bomb which doesn't make a sound) are illegal.
• Planting bombs so that they can not be defused are illegal.
• Flashbugs are forbidden.
• Mapswimming or Floating is illegal.
• You need to record a .dem file (demo) even if there will be a HLTV during the matches.
• If you suspect anyone of cheating send me a PM in the next format:
Match: Team 1 vs Team 2
Player reported: X
Map : de_xxxx
• Every player has to keep his demo in his PC after the match ended 30 minutes since if there are any suspicions we can verify them by checking the demos.
• If asked for the demo and you did not record one, you will be kicked out of the event and banned from participating in the next event of the war section. Rest assured you will be reminded at the beginning of the game to record so that there will be no excuses about forgetting or not being notified.
• The above two rules are canceled if and only if there is an active HLTV on the server confirmed as fully operational by the organizer.
Details as to how and which maps will be played can be found further down the page in the "Miscellaneous" section.
-> Remember this is a 5on5 event that means teams of 5 people will compete against each other on designated maps until one is considered the winner. You can sign-up as a 2-man cell at most (ex: Lien and RiotX sign-up as a team and during the random team picks they will be put together in the same team) or just by yourself but remember if you are a part of a 2-man cell you will be added in a team according to the skill level your cell and the other teams have. The pairing will be done with random.org.
-> If the team does not choose a captain one will be given by default, if the team-captain does not choose a name for the team one will be given to you (ex: Team 1, Team 2, Team Pantyhose etc.)
-> There is no max. number of teams but remember this is a 5on5 tournament. Any more players than the x5(times five) that are expected to sign-up will be put as reserves. Ex: 42 people sign-up -> 42 = 40 + 2 = 8x5 + 2 -> 8 teams + 2 reserves. Who the reserves will be is decided by the order of sign-ups.
-> Further down the page you will notice that the schedules already have an 8-team based tournament ideal at the base of the event, that is purely for exemplifying what the brackets and schedules will look like. The bracket will be modified accordingly after the sign-ups will be closed
-> Before the matches start you will be notified through a PM on the forums thus you will be able to take the information about the match both from this thread and your inbox. Also I advise people who can't constantly watch the forums during the day of the event to add me on steam. Details below.
We have prizes :
First place: 100.000 nDcash ( 20k per person ) + medal to prove you are the winner of the event (Medal will be delivered as a signature custom made, not as a real one.)
Second place: 50.000 nDcash ( 10 k per person )
Remember prizes can change at any time (for the better) if we get donations.
To sign-up simply reply in this topic with "In" or "I am in", if you have a 2-man cell, sign-ups request that approval/consent is needed from both participants. If you have questions you can ask here or on steam at "rambo_1993".

Maps will be decided by two bans between the two Team - Captains in each round. The order will be decided by a knife duel between the two.
Ex: Captain A wins knife duel. Captain A bans de_dust2 (it won't be played during that match). Captain B bans de_inferno. Captain A bans de_tuscan. Captain B bans de_train. -> Map to be played will be de_nuke. Remember this is only available for R1 and R2. During the Grand Final there will be only one ban per team.
Maps to be chosen from :
Another example from a bracket of the same type of tournament can be seen here
The official tournament bracket will be posted after the teams have been made/decided.
Each Round will be played with standard MR15 Rules and will not end in a draw. If there is a draw there will be over-time which will be represented by 5 rounds played with 10.000$ (ten thousand) at the beginning of the first round for each team on each side that means a total of 10 Over-Time rounds.
The Grand Final will be played 29th june 2013 at 19:00, it will be a BoF3 (Best out Of 3) type of match where the winners will prove their skill. The winning teams are decided by the two teams who won most matches. The final decides which team is number 1 and which is number 2 in rankings.
