This guide shoud help you participate at United-BattleZone tournaments. Normally we host a Zero Hour tournament every sunday. Feel free to ask any questions. Visit us on http://www.united-battlezone.de. Pre-Tournament Step 1 – Registration: First of all you have to register. The account is valid for our forums and the tournament page. You can use our English registration process. After registration check your mail and click the validation link. Step 2 – Log in: Second you have to login in (enter username and chosen password). Step 3 – Sign Up for a tournament: Third you have to choose a tournament you want to participate. The tournaments are listed in the right column of the page. The game symbols and abbreviations show which game is played (most likely Ra2 – Red Alert 2 [marked as yellow] or ZH – Zero Hour [marked as red]). Tournament date and time are Central European Time. Click on “anmelden” for your desired tournament (first in the right column, after that the button showing up in the middle of the screen). You’re now signed up (check the “Teilnehmer“ link for your nick – if it shows up you’re signed up) Step 4 – Check-In: The time shown is the time when the Check-In starts. The Check-In is a confirmation of your participation, which usually starts 30 minutes before the tournament. All players who signed up have to check-in in case they still want to participate (this prevents us from having a grid with 50% players not available). Click on “Einchecken” at the right column – after that click the button showing up in the middle of the screen. During the tournament: Communication between admins and players in IRC is obligatory: Each player must stay in the IRC-Channel #united-forum (QuakeNet) during the entire tournament. All communication with other players and especially the tournament admins takes place there. In case you don’t have an IRC Client set up at your computer, you can use our „ready-to-go“ IRC, which is available here. Admins can be identified by the "@DoW" in front of their nicknames. If you don’t use IRC you can’t participate or will be excluded. Tournament Details: The tournament details contain detailed tournament information (e.g. maps, prizes) – mostly in English. Grid: After the tournament started check the grid for your opponent. Contact him through IRC and play your games (see tournament details for modus, maps, etc.). Report Loss: After all games of a round were played (most likely it’s best of three, but check tournament details for exact information) the loser has to report the loss and upload the replays. Don’t report the game before all games are played – reporting is final and can’t be undone. All replays have to be uploaded at once (put them in a .zip or .rar archive).
