It's time to Rumble for the kids again!

RumbleCharity!

mcYZ5Yu.png

Event going down on December 7, 2013! Set the date!

More importantly, once again we'll be spotlighting our wonderfully-adorable "lower" league players from the general community.

BUT FIRST, you guys will have a chance to participate in the event! We are holding a one-day "offline" qualifying mini-tournament to compete for 16 open spots to be part of the Rumble.

- The qualifying tourney will be on Saturday, November 23rd at Noon EST
- Bronze to Gold players only
- Signups will be open until an hour before the tournament and we'll contact contestants via email / bnet with the channel name when we begin.
- Update: Wood League players also welcome

More details on the mini-tournament can be found in the sign-up form.
Please fill out the form completely as we'll be verifying that you're a true... "casual" player.


We'll be raising money for Child's Play. For information about this charity you can visit their website or watch this video for some behind-the-scenes information.


About the event: The Rumble in the Bronze is a tournament / charity-fundraising event put together by 100% community volunteers. It is a combination of hard-core Bronzesque play and fun showmatches with pros. Since 2010, we've gathered together to let low-level players duke it out for the entertainment of the masses, while raising money for a good cause. All combined we've raised over $26,800 due to the generosity of the eSports community.


Some VODs from our previous rumble events:
Rumble in the Bronze 2011: Throwdown in Tinsel Town
The End of Liberty 2012


Here's a small clip from one of last year's showmatches, to give you a taste of what's to come :D




As for the Rumble itself, we have some great games planned for you guys. Stay tuned as we release more details in the coming weeks!

    One of my teammates is interested in Starcraft so I have him watching the WCS stream and TheSTC's stream at the moment. He's really excited about how fast it is compared to Dota, constantly asking questions about how units work and game mechanics.

    How do I keep him sticking to it once he logs in and realizes how hard it is?

    I find it hard to get the dates for tournaments in general. It just seems like most tournaments have a habit of not posting the date anywhere until 2 weeks beforehand. If you've booked out a venue, you got dates. Just tell me dangit.

    nani vs revival is TOMORROW for 16th place and a spot at blizzcon

    TOMORROW

    I am 100% behind naniwa for the whole tournament now. he's got me like jinro, stephano, thorzain did in their primes. that last ep of Meta really helped as has what I believe is him de-asshole-ifying himself over the last 6 months or so. also those proxy gates.

    those proxy gates

    THIS IS SO FUCKING GOOD

    "There is a fundamental difference between Jaedong and everyone else in the tournament. He's not like Bomber or MC, who erased their pasts and reinvented themselves as champions. He's not like MMA or Maru, who barely got started in Brood War before an opportunity called SC2 came along. He's not like INnoVation or Soulkey, for whom Brood War died too quickly for them to realize their potential. He's not like TaeJa or Polt, who face no shadows of the past as they began their professional careers with StarCraft 2.

    Unlike the sixteen other players, Jaedong has already stood on top of the world. He is the only player who is competing for the title of the best, past and present. For Jaedong, the WCS Finals are not about rebirth or the realization of a lifelong dream. It's about the continuation of a reign that was interrupted in 2010."

    pointless to quote something someone just linked to but fuck it. chills.

    the hype articles are excellent. I love hearing all these stories. I didn't even know about Jaedong vs Flash and the power outage.

    It's a great idea by TL writers to do this - the hype for EVERY. SINGLE. MATCH is going to be unreal.

    Blizzcon better have the loudest crowd on this earth. I've never seen a tournament so stacked. It's absurd.

    I am truly happy that we may see matches that would have been good in 2011, even 2010, and some where the names would have meant nothing at the time. or where names would have meant a different game at the time.

    it's amazing what we might see. the only part I am missing at all will be saturday night for work, and maybe the beginning sunday depending on time (but considering it's west coast, I doubt it).

    I got a buddy coming to redbull nyc and I told him about blizzcon (he only knows the sc basics, played sc2 campaign, doesn't watch/play multi at all ever, played at launch) so he's gonna come over and I'm gonna put it on the big tv and everything. so excited.

    So question for P players. If you are paired against someone in a lower league, is the "standard" play to cheese? I ask because I had a string of plat/diamond players either cannon me or similar weird stuff.

    All the gold protoss usually try regular builds. I'm debating trying proxy hatch in those situations
