lol wait… first of all why are yal not just doing this on the original gears ofwar?

i mean gears of war 1 is the best gears in the series…

gears 1 was actually more about skill… and you would get murdered touching the left trigger…

and 2) this is not straight up gears 1 rules…if it was bleed out time would be 5 seconds

Bleed out time can be adjusted and we are playing gears 4 ,that is the current gears game everyone is playing

no. not everyone. GEARS1 will always Survive. meanwhile Gears4 will die when gears5,6,7 etc etc come out…but GEARS1 will always live.

Loryat: True on the 5 seconds, I’ve changed that. I appreciate the correction.

Will there really be only 16 teams in total for this event?

Oh yes we will. We want some redemption.

Loryat: Yes. It ensures a proper bracket and it accommodates a good number of people.

16 teams is a nice, manageable and fun number for a tournament like this, Next step up is 32 which as you can imagine takes a lot of time to organise and then run on the day.

I noticed on the Crimson tournament that the sign-ups started before the bracket opened. Can we post a team now or should we wait until the 10th?

Post away buddy :blush:
