I have decided to setup a tournament, seeing vjeux had to cancel the last one.
The tournament will be in two weeks, just to give people time to set up teams and practice. The date will be September 11th at 4 PM Paris time (7 AM San Francisco, 10 AM New York)
The tournament will be casted live by yours truly on the Custom Live stream.
The cash prizes are sponsored by me, and the Curse premium by SC2Mapster
I hope this will bring more interest in custom maps, so everyone who can should sign up.
Map: Nexus Wars (version is still being checked, but the newest one on EU is called Nexus Wars US and is hosted by Doccrazy)
4 vs 4
Here is a map preview by HuskyStarcraft, this is of a older version of the map so most bugs have been sorted out, this video just explains what is the goal.
You have to have an available EU account.
Your team must be registered 6 hours before the tournaments starts.

Erm, I do not believe that is the original Nexus Wars. That version is bugged and old. The original(Which was on the US) was created and maintained by "lilman". Lipshcitz Is the fake.
Having played the updated one during beta(on the US). I can say that the one on EU is not fun to play at all, due to a lot of balance changes and updates that were needed.
Hi everyone, this is Isospeedrix and I will be (hopefully) creating a community for Nexus Wars and handling suggestions and changelogs. As most of you know, Nexus Wars was created by Lilman, and is one of the most popular maps in SC2 beta. I work with Lilman personally and he has decided to minimize dealing with forums and public affairs in favor of focusing on map design. Lets hope Nexus Wars will continue to thrive in SC2 retail!
Probably someone will have to talk to Isospeedrix...
I have received requests/complaints that Nexus Wars cannot be ported onto EU/SEA servers. Because the way battle.net is set up, each game is locked to its own region. Unfortunately we have no solution to this yet, so for now Nexus Wars can only be played on US servers. Please let me know here if you have a solution to this.
There is a Nexus Wars on the EU server at 1.17 that we could use instead hosted by Doccrazy.
Would be nice though is anyone from the US could get in contact with isospeedrix for me, as you need a US character to post on the US forums (sigh)
The name of the map is Nexus Wars US and if we decide to move to that or get a newer one the standard settings will be No Fog and 15 sec income.
Thank to you all for brining this to my attention, I tried the other version of the map and it was way better then the old one, to bad no one plays that one.
Again it would be nice if we could get the current one up on the EU servers and play that.
You are obviously reading wrong, if its a comma (,) the behind is cents as in $100,50 is one hundred dollars and fifty cent. If its a period (.) its there to divide the number for easy reading every third number like 100.000.000,00
And you have also added a extra zero to your number :p The prize is two hundred and fifty dollars, $250,00 ^^
