Config Files. If you would like to be able to have a .cfg file to execute to setup your settings for in-game, we are prepared to do that for you! However it must be sent in to firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE The tournament (The Last day is the Wednesday Night before the Tournament). The email should contact your .cfg file, not the autoexec, also include your Name and the team name you are playing for. If you do not email your config beforehand, you will not have access on the day of the tournament and will have no extra time to setup (You will have the same time as everyone else)
-Outside keyboards will NOT be allowed during day 1 of Tournament play. This is for multiple reasons, it is unlikely that you will be able to setup on the same computer for the duration of the tournament, and we do not have the time available for each team to setup and take down multiple times. We have also had issues with people mishandling our equipment and breaking it during tournaments. There will be no exceptions to this rule. If the Tournament does run 2 days, day 2 you are able to bring your keyboard as there will be much less moving and less people playing.
-Outside Mice and Mouse Pads are completely fine for all stages of the tournament. If you require special software to setup your equipment however you will not have access to install it. It must be plug and play.
-Outside Headsets are also allowed. HOWEVER if you require a USB sound card you may not use the headset. USB Sound cards over-ride our default sound settings and cause way too many issues to deal with on a tournament day. Just like with Keyboards day 2 you may use a USB sound card, since we will have more time to ensure everything runs smoothly.
No Ghosting. This is a Live-Event if people are attempting to get an advantage by having friends/players inform them of the others teams moves/plans the team will be immediately disqualified.
Be Courteous – The tournament Admin reserves the right to eject a player/team if they are being abusive to any other player. We have zero tolerance policy for violence, and verbal abuse ejections will be at the discretion of the tournament admin.
If we have 12 or more Teams the counter-strike Event will have to run into a second day.
*This Schedule is an outline of how long we anticipate the Tournament to run, however due to the nature games can run long, or short changing the schedule*

In a Best of 3 the Losing team gets to chose either the next map they want to play, or the side they want to start on. Map is always selected before choosing a side.
Will you be livestreaming the event?
Unfortunately no. We have a set amount of hardware available and the computers we would use to stream other video game events we host, we instead use to host LAN Servers for the tournament.
What is the LAN server setup?
It is a 128 tick Server running on our LAN network. Under 10ms
How much does it cost to watch?
There is no fee to come watch the event. We just ask you be respectful of the players and their space.
What if I can’t play day 2?
If you can’t play day 2 I do not recommend registering for the tournament, unless you are prepared to forfeit your day two games.
Why the 45second Bomb timer?
We follow the default rule set for the CS:GO Competitive Matchmaking, and some players are not familiar with the 35second bomb timer. In the later stages of the tournament if both teams wish to use a 35second Bomb timer we can change it.
Will the bracket use Seeding for higher skilled teams?
No, we will not be seeding any teams.
Can I sign up without a team?
Unfortunately no, you do require a full team to play.
