May 11th, 2014 is shutting down on May 25th.

When my brother Max and I set out to make tournaments more accessible in 2010, we never expected the project to be so successful. After thousands of tournaments, 100,000+ players, and 385,546 tournament registrations, it is time for us to move on. There are too many stories to share here, but we will always be grateful for the opportunity to interact with a diverse group of competitive gaming communities, tournament organizers, volunteers, coaches, shout casters, and gamers from all over the world.

While Z33K has always been free, we do not have time or resources to actively drive the project forward. If someone is interested in taking over the project, feel free to contact

Welcome to Overmind Gaming's open weekly!


It is an absolute requirement that you join the group channel on 'OvermindxGaming', this is how participants and Admins can locate each other and communicate the most effectively. Admins are there to help, their ID's can be found at the top of this page, if someone is being difficult or breaking the rules, let them know! When in game you may pause only when absolutely necessary, and never without first alerting your opponent that you are doing so, and once again when resuming. The brackets are generated randomly, and when they aren't completely filled, random players may be given a BYE until the next round or once a latecomer jumps in.

First time with us?
Step 1. Join the group channel OvermindxGaming
Step 2. Contact your opponent that's listed under the tournament bracket
Step 3. Follow the rules, and report your games by clicking your match on the bracket
Step 4. More GG, More Skill

1. First map of each round will be listed under the brackets, and 'Match Schedule' on this page
2. If playing a best-of series, loser picks next map
3. A map cannot be played twice in the same series
4. Players in Finals may veto up to 2 maps

I can't find anyone, where is the group channel?

How do you generate the map pool?
It is a combination of current ladder maps and active tournament league maps.

Disconnection in mid game?
If able, resume game from replay. If opponent fails to return to within 10 minutes, report the match as their forfeit. 

Can't build Heart of the Swarm Units?
This happens when you choose an old version of a map that was in Wings of Liberty, be sure to select the format that's listed on this page.

Where do I report my matches?
By going to the bracket page and clicking on your matchup.

Where can I find the tournament results, and if available, casts and streams?
