Well, despite having 30 players sign up for Proving Grounds this weekend, we were unable to get 5 games going. However, as we did have the required sign-up, I am officially announcing the Proving Grounds Tournament.

Format
:
Tournament will be in the form of a single elimination tournament. Games will be blind pick summoner rift.

Teams:
Teams will consist of 1 PG mentor and 4 students. For the first tournament, I am limiting the tournament to 8 teams.

Registration:
Mentors:
Mentors will act as team captains. Mentors may sign up to lead a team until 5 pm EST Wed. May 4th. A limit of 8 mentors will able to sign up. If more sign up, I will decide which ones will lead, with preference given to those that have put in significant time to PG. I realize this may leave a few people out in the cold, but I hope this is only the first of many PG tournaments and do not want it to be larger than I can manage the fist time through.
Players:
Once the Team captains have been chosen, they will be listed and any current or former PG player may sign up under a mentor (they must have participated in at least 1 PG prior to signing up). Please note which mentor you want to play under, and at least 1 alternate mentor (in case too many sign up under the same mentor). Teams will be on a first come basis and mentors will have no say in their teams (ie, the players will get to choose whom they want to play with!).
Alternates:
If you miss the sign up OR want to sign up but are unsure if you will make it, you can sign up as an alternate. Alternate will be used to fill in spaces on game day for no shows. IF you are late and have been replaced on game day, you will be added to the alternate pool.

Date:
Tournament is tentatively scheduled for Friday, May 13th at 9pm EST. Teams are encouraged to play together with their mentor prior to the game.

Prizes:
I will be giving out a $25 Riot Card to each member of the tournament champion team!

General Rules:
- No restrictions on Mentors (Team Captains) in choice of champion, roles, runes, or masteries.
- Games will be blind pick games on summoners rift.
- Game results will be reported to me by both team captain immediately following the game.
- General rules from PG regarding sportsmanship apply (this is a "for fun" tourney, prizes are nice but not the true reason for this tournament).

Hope to see people there in 2 weeks and hope everyone has some fun!
