Z33K.com 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 lane@z33k.com.

Lane and Max

Tournament Rules

1. Finals: The finals will be set up and observed by an Admins and possibly other members of the Infinity Gaming Community (Admins may decline to enforce this rule)

  • 2. Size: Upon the discretion of the Admins and height of demand, this tournaments size may increase or decrease.

  • 3. Timeouts: A player may pause during a game if needed, but if they do not return within a reasonable amount of time without properly informing the other player, the player waiting will be awarded with an automatic match win.

  • 4. Cheating: If a player is caught to be cheating (mineral or map hacks, watching the stream, using a smurf account, etc.), they will be banned from future tournaments and disqualified from this tournament. Things such as abusing known bugs will also result in short-term bans. Multiple offenses will lead to permanent bans.

  • 5. Disappearing/AFK: If for some reason a player doesn't show up to play in the first round he/she will be disqualified from that tournament. Time restraints are as follows: Once a round officially starts (or the bracket goes up), a player has 10 minutes before he/she forfeits the match. If the round is a best of three the player has another 10 minutes before he/she forfeits the series. Obviously we're willing to be reasonable for actual serious problems, but just disappearing with no warning, or refusing to play, is pretty bad manner and we don't like it. If someone must leave, the player they defeated in the previous round will be given the opportunity to play in their place.

  • 6. Conduct: Excessive bad manners (BM) such as noob bashing, hardcore raging, or racial slurs, spamming, etc is grounds for removal from the tournament.

  • 7. Rulings: All rules and guidelines are subject to change without notice at the discretion of an admin or tournament host.

  • 8. Streaming: Streaming is only allowed if both players agree and/or an Admin wishes to cast the match. All live streams are to have a 3 - 5 minute delay to prevent stream sniping. 

9. Chat: Players are expected to communicate via the SC2 chat Clan Infinity.

10. Play on: If a player get's disqualified or quits, at the discretion of an Admin a player who was previously eliminated may have an opportunity to play.
