• Best Young Flyers Starcraft 2 Tournament

    A Starcraft 2 Tournament has popped up over on Ponychan, primarily for the people who are still learning the game.  

    This will only be for Bronze and Silver League, hence the "young" Flyers and not "Wonderbolts Tier Flyers". 

    This one actually includes some really nice prizes too!  You can find all of that after the break, or just visit this post


    Howdy Bronies,

    Bored waiting for season 2 already? Got competitive spirit? Own Starcraft 2?
    You’re in luck! Because the Best Young Flyers Starcraft 2 tournament for Bronze and Silver league bronies is just a stone’s throw away. That’s right, my friend (Jarhun) and I (Rainbow Brisk) decided to hold a low-level Starcraft 2 tournament featuring an all-brony lineup, for fun, healthy competition, brony interaction, and fabulous pony prizes. Want in? Keep on reading!

    ***Disclaimer*** Unfortuantely, as Jarhun and I only have North American accounts, the tournament will be limited to people on the North America server. We regret that we cannot accommodate European, asian
    -Play Starcraft 2: a Starcraft 2 tournament for low level players (Silver and Bronze league only), with the format depending on the number of players interested. If there is a lot of interest (and therefore, a lot of games), the tournament will be single elimination. If interest is minimal, then the tournament will feature a double elimination losers bracket. There will be no Exhibition matches before the tournament, placement in the bracket will be decided by random chance.
    -Meet other pony players: Unless a bunch of non-pony fans decide to join the tournament for no reason, then the playerbase will consist fully of your fellow pony friends.
    -Win Fabulous Prizes: Pony merchandise will be awarded to the players who place first, second, and third in the tournament. The prizes are as follows:
                    -First Prize: First Prize will be the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic 4 pack figurine set, featuring               Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie figurines.
                    -Second Prize: The player who places second will receive the My Little Pony Applejack’s Sweet                 Apple Barn Playset.
                    Third Prize: Third Prize will be the My Little Pony Basic Figure Set, of the pony of your choice.
    -Get casted! The final rounds of the tournament, should all go well, will be casted by Jarhun and myself. We have never casted before and are fairly awful Starcraft 2 players, so hilarity should ensue!

    -Players! If you are a bronze or silver league player and want to participate, you are more than welcome to! Keep reading for more information!
    -Help! If you are a seasoned Starcraft 2 player (or not so seasoned, but adverse to playing), but still want to participate, we will need some observers to make sure the game gets played, wins are recorded, and replays are sent. Right now there are just two of us, and if we get a lot of players it may be a daunting task to run by ourselves.
    -Support! All of the time and money to put this tournament together (money mostly for prizes) are coming from Jarhun and myself, for you guys. Make sure that you have a lot of fun, be great sports, and make this the best young flyers competition ever!

    If you would like to participate as a player or an observer in the tournament, send an email to [email protected] with the following information:
                    -Starcraft 2 account name (MUST BE ON THE NORTH AMERICAN SERVER)
                    -Your interest (as a player or as an observer)
                    -Your league (will be confirmed by us before tournament starts)
                    - Your favorite pony (you may choose multiple ponies)
