Z33K Weekly #30 - $250 RP OPEN Tournament
Last week we had a great turnout with 58 teams competing. Thanks to all who mustered 5 last Saturday this continues to be a successful event. Congrats to the winning team Rx Troll for taking 1st place with members: dudeimazn, Sickoscott, Sotere, BobqinXD, and Tblade755.

If you have any ideas for how to improve this event please let me know fletcher@z33k.com.

Announcement #1
Next week is the NA UnderRated Weekly #1 on Sat Nov 17. This tournament is for players who have 1499 ELO or LESS. More info can be found here http://www.z33k.com/groups/lol-weekly.

Announcement #2
Did you know that Z33K.com is actually a public platform that allows you to create your own tournaments? We want you to utilize this tool! If you're running a tournament or if you've thought it would be cool to run one, I invite you to come check out how easy we've made the process in the last 2 years of development. In the next 7 days there are 2 such tournies that we (the Z33K staff) didn't create. Consider participating in them. The Sticky Flames weekly #12 is here: http://www.z33k.com/groups/stickyflames.


Z33K.com is happy to announce the 30th installment of its weekly League of Legends 5v5 tournament series. This is an open tournament with a total of $250 in RP prizes!

Team Leaders: simply register an account on Z33K and hit the "SIGN MY TEAM UP" button. You will be asked to create a team, or sign up an existing team, which is quick and easy. Simply include yourself and your team members e-mail addresses and summoner names and you're set. Make sure to include the summoner name of each player under "Contact". Your team will be registered for the event. For future tournaments, you can simply sign up the team you just created.

Note, your teammates will receive an e-mail notifying them that they have been added to a team. They have the option to reject it (if someone was added in error). They are also given the option to activate a Z33K account ( this is not required).

This is a 1-day tournament. All matches will be played on the day of the tournament. Be prepared to play many matches in succession. Each team is allowed to register up to 9 members for the tournament. If you want a player on your team to be able to play in the tournament you must have them registered for that particular tournament before the event starts, not just on your team roster. Prizing is only given out to 5 members of each team.

Check-in: Teams must check-in prior to the start of the tournament to confirm participation. To check-in, at least one team member must click the “Check me in now” button on the tournament page. If you see a checkmark next to your team’s name on the team page of the tournament, you’re all set.

In-Game Chat: After checking in, team leaders or a representative from your team must be on the League of Legends client in the chat room z33k. IRC chat is also available from the website if you are unable to reach an admin in-game.

Brackets: Brackets for the event will be posted with random seeding, and once brackets are up matches begin immediately. Find your team name and your opponent and set up the game. Top and bottom lanes are based on the physical location in the bracket for each match.

Reporting Results: When you complete a match, you must report the result on the brackets. To do so, click on your team name on the bracket and hit "report match result". When prompted, indicate the winning team. If you or your opponent accidentally report the result incorrectly, please contact an admin so they can reverse the result, have a screenshot ready.

Be sure to reserve your spot in in next week’s tournament: http://www.z33k.com/groups/lol-weekly, or browse some of the tournaments that community groups like xO, Sticky Flames, HC, and aTm are hosting via the public/open/free/awesome Z33K tournament platform. If you are interested in getting more involved in the competitive LoL scene, consider applying to our new event administration team jobs@z33k.com.

Hello, I am new to tournaments and my friends and I want to start doing them. Could anyone help me with what happens after the check-in process? I can't find any information about how the tournament works when it comes to actually joining the game and then reporting the results. Thank you for your time.
