Good Afternoon Gamers,
(Poster Done by OGM Forever)
Edit 10: Registration closes on the 11th May 2013. And Based on my estimates, I will most probably be running a 16 man tournament without group stages. So the 17th team and above that registers before 11 May 2013 will be placed on the waiting list.
OGM is proud to be hosting the OGM Ultimate Duo Rumble held on the 18 -19 May 2013.
Game Format: KOTH 2v2. 5 mins. Depending on the participants that joined, I will release the tournament structure. Best of 3,5 or 7 per match, depending on the stage you are in. It is guaranteed that the top 16 will play in a double elimination format in the best of 5 until the semi finals match. Semi Finals till the Grand Finals match will be Best of 7.
Edit 4: Just as a clarification. When I mean 5 mins, I mean that the first team needs to cap the point for 5 mins wins the match. (Edit: Tournament Format has been released) This is to make sure that everyone that signs up for the competition will not be refused entry.
Class allowed per team: 1 Medic, 1 Soldier.
Restrictions: Please look at the Rules and Regulations
Edit 6: I have decided to release the tournament format, as I realized that non disclosure will introduce confusion to the community. However, it is a bit long and my apologies for that. Any queries is welcome, and I am flexible to change the schedule if needed be.
Tournament Format (Note that this is not finalized until I give the proper tournament structure which will be a week before the actual tournament date. There will be some major changes):
• If there is less than 8 teams, the tournament will be postponed to a later date until at least 16 teams joined.
• If there is exactly 8 teams that joined the tournament: Single elimination Format of 8 teams will be used. The event will be dropped from 2 days to one day instead. All matches except Grand Finals will be a BO5. Grand Finals will be a BO7.
• If 8-16 teams registered, Group stages of 16 teams will be used. After which 8 teams will advance into single elimination format. All group matches will be a BO3. All matches above group stages except Grand Finals will be a BO5. Grand Finals will be a BO7.
• If there are 16 teams, double elimination format, BO 5 for each match. Semi Finals till the Grand Finals will be a BO 7. There will be no winner bracket's advantage.
• If there are 16-32 teams, which is the ideal scenario, there will be group stages of 32 teams, followed by double elimination of 16 teams.
• If there are >32 teams but <100 teams, there will be a preliminaries match conducted before the actual tournament date. Top 32 teams will be seeded into the group stages. After which 16 teams will be picked for the RO16 match in the double elimination format.
• If there is more than 100 teams, Swiss system format (Will be decided by server capability of OneAsiaGamer and Asiafortress) will be used, and 7 matches of BO5 will be played. Top 16 will be seeded into the double elimination format. If we do have the time, Top 32 will be seeded in group stages followed by double elimination format of 16 players.
Schedule of tournament
This is done with the assumption that OGM utilizes 8 admins and 16-32 teams are expected.

• Using this binary beast as reference, there will be from group A to H.
• Teams A-D check in at 1230 hrs to confirm their attendance for the group stages. From then, 2 admins will be handing each group. Each match in the group stage will be a BO3. The event will start at 1300 hrs The admins are expected to complete the stages 3 hours later. An hour leeway will be given to them. This event is expected to end at 1600 hrs, with 1700 hrs at the latest (1hr per round, with 3 rounds in total)
• For Group E-H, they will check in at 2000 hrs for their matches to be conducted. Similarly, their event is expected to end at 2300 hrs with 0000 hrs at the latest.

I did attach a rules and regulations file in this thread. Please download and read the word document as it contains information that you, as a member of the community participating in the tourney, should know.
OGM CrimsonFirebird, Newnar, Eques, Heepzteer, Nameless, Forever and various other OGM members hopes that this Rumble will allow the members of the tf2 community to interact with each other, to strengthen the integrity of the community and to showcase skills and sportsmanship within gamers themselves.
Fun games (Other than our standard Ultiduo) will be alongside our Rumble. Look Forward to it.
OGM: Centralizing E-sports, Connecting Gamers, Empowering Spectators
PS: OGM is inviting Guest Casters to cast our match. Applications are to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Edit: I have forgotten to add. It is an online tourney. Our dreamhack like event is still within its planning stage and will not be organized in the near future.
Edit 2: I have decided to put in further money till SGD $30. This decision is screwing up with my pocket money as 1. I am not as rich as most of you think. I am from a lower middle class family and we are living by the skin of our teeth. 2. Most of my money is funded towards getting a good double major degree in maths and physics in my university, and physics, being my forte, is where I would want to really excel in. This is just my little way of contributing back to the community for them being there during my dire times of need. (If you guys don't get the hint, oh well)
Edit 3: I will be imposing a 1 refined metal entrance fee to the competition. It pains me to generate a barrier to entry as I know that some people still have not the ability to make one refined metal but all of this is going towards the prize pool in the end, and not into my pocket. I sincerely hope that you do not hate me on this, but if you are really a bit short on making a refined metal, come talk to me and we can make a concession. Also, I do accept any metal donations to this rumble. Your contributions will be greatly appreciated and will be reflected under our list of sponsors.
Edit 5: There are some edits to the Rules and Regulations as well. The latest one is in http://onlygamingmat...x=0#post8060870
Blacklist for Soldier
• Primary Weapons: Only Rocket Launcher is allowed. (Direct Hit is subjected to a vote in the poll)
• Secondary Weapons: Only Gunboats and Shotgun are allowed
• Melee Weapon: Only Shovel, Equalizer, Escape Plan and Disciplinary action are allowed
Blacklist for Medic
• Primary Weapon: Only Crossbow or Syringe Gun or Blutslauger are allowed
• Secondary Weapon: Only Medigun allowed. (An poll will be held to determine the viability of Quick Fix and Kritzkrieg as an allowed weapon. Vaccinator is strictly not allowed)
• Melee weapon: Only Bonesaw, Ubersaw are allowed.
As a few of you have realized, I have not place a registration date. I am awaiting for further review of various things before I finalize the event (as in the Tourament Format) itself. However, the closing date will not be placed just a few days before the event starts, as it will allow OGM to fine tune its operational capacity and to release a tournament schedule that requires little tweaking on the day itself. To be safe, do note to sign up as soon as possible, as it will guarantee you a place. If you want an estimate of the latest good closing date, it will be by 11 May 2013. Confirmation E-mail will be sent to various teams by then.
Edit 9: Also, there is an test server that has been set up kindly by the admins of OneAsiaGamer. Do note that this server still suffers from whitelist bugs and Soldier whitelist weapons are not accurate.
Server Details are as follows: 126.96.36.199:30001
Do note that only 1 soldier and 1 medic is allowed per team. Any spectator that joins the team that has already one medic and one soldier could not pick a class to play.
Edit 8: I would like to extend my thanks to Fuzz who has kindly donated metal to the prize pool. Your name will be added to the list of sponsors
