GameReplays.org is proud to announce that after 3 very successful seasons, we are partnering up with own3D.tv, TeamSpeak and SteelSeries to bring you another very exciting event. We give you Tournament Season 4! This is our biggest event yet, with a prize pool consisting of $3,000, hardware and Gold coins.
We have made a few small changes this season. We are bringing back the team roster, which means teams will need to provide their team roster before playing the first qualifier and that roster cannot be changed during the whole season. Like in the last season the winner of each of our 5 Qualifiers, which will consist of 40 teams each, will receive a $100 prize. Along with that we have some new rules regarding Forfeits/No-Shows, as well as new Server Picking Rules which we hope will be easier and more fair to our international teams! At the end of the 5 Qualifying tournaments, we will be holding our Invitational where top 8 teams will compete not only for our amazing prizes, but for the title of TS4 Champions! For rules, tournament structure, schedule and all information related to this event visit the Tournament Season 4 Official Page.
This will be the first qualifier out of 5 in which teams will fight for a prize of $100 as well as points on this season ladder to book their place in the Invitational which will have a prize pool of $2,500, hardware and Gold coins.
This qualifier tournament will allow 40 teams to sign-up: 8 for top 8 seeds and 32 teams for the Pre-Qualifier. Pre-Qualifier will be played on Saturday April 30 at 20:00 CET, in which 32 teams will play only 2 rounds and the wining 8 teams will join the top 8 seeds in the Qualifier which will be held on Sunday May 1 at 20:00 CET.

Tbh, I think most people understand why casting organization x doesn't let casting organization y cast at the same time as them, and vice versa.
Just because it's 'best for the community' doesn't mean that's enough to make it a reality. As Gosu stated, why put in the effort to set up an event and cast it if casting organization z ends up with 80% of the viewers?
Your argument is that Honcast would cover it better, which is irrelevant when you take into account that it's not merely the community that should benefit from a competition, but the organizers and the casters have to get something out of it as well, page views.
As if you don't know this, filthy troll! :P
We'll see about casting, there is this crazy queen bee over there running the show now, smock or something, totally in to me but holds me back cuz she jelly of my angelic voice.
It's tough man it's tough. I should just take myself where I'll be appreciated, like honcast or something. Oh wait, I already did that, then HunteR happened, then Veivi happened, then I quit HoN for 8 months, came back couple months ago, competing again... yup, I've seen this cycle before, I'll cast full time > competing in like 2-3 months. Till then I'll just slip in a cast here and there when hitler, I mean smock, isn't looking.
Pray for me.
You do a cast and the people will come - this I can assure you. Plus you're better at casting than throwing - or are you? :O
Athildur for president!
Looking forward to the event.
Questions from a concerned community member removed? Bad Moderation right there.
