In 2013, the first SC2 tournament for PC members was hosted. The champion of that tournament was a Dutch Protoss named ShadowE, defeating the Australian Zerg, gimmepie, with 4-1. Now, im 2014, a new champion could rise... It could be you this time!
Spoiler:
The last move that ended the tournament:

2014, a new year, a new SC2 tournament to blow the previous champion off the throne or not.
Anyone can join, from old players to people who recently join. There is no shame in defeat, as the main purpose of this tournament is just to have fun and learn a bit of the game while playing (which also was the main purpose in 2013).

The tournament will be hosted on the EU server of SC2, and from what i can tell from my Australian Arch Nemesis is that it works allright with the latency, so it will be hosted on the EU server unless you really cant play on the EU server. If you cant, lemme know and ill make sure your matches gets played on your server.

The tournament will start on February 10th, and sign ups will be allowed till February 3rd
This is to get more people into it and they get time to install and prepare for the tournament itself.
I learned from my mistakes with hosting it last time xD

Joining is simple and easy (not fun though).
Just fill in this form:
Username: ShadowE
Race (Protoss, Terran, Zerg or Random): Terran

Everyone who participates gets a emblem, and there are special emblems for who places 3rd (if there are more than 4 people joining), 2nd and 1st!
Also there will be a throphy for the winner :3

So come all in and join for fun, emblems and a possible throphy :D

Participants (may change if the player decides to)
Spoiler:

Protoss:
No Chance Without Zekrom

Terran:
ShadowE
Warrior Rapter

Zerg:
Gimmepie
Lord Scalgon

Random:

I'll be signing up then (since Shadow said my matches can be on the weekends when I got the time for it).

PC Username: No Chance Without Zekrom
EU SC2 Username: JunkoLovesU
Race: Protoss

EDIT: Found out that No Chance Without Zekrom is far too long for Starcraft II's character limit when registering a name for the EU server. So I went with something different. My EU Starcraft II username is JunkoLovesU. Hope there's no confusion. Oh, and I'll roll with Protoss for the tournament.

    I'll join, though I only have WoL currently. Think I'm going to go ahead and enter as Terran, even though I'm usually Zerg, just in the off chance that they don't let me change race with the next patch. Which means I have some practice to do.

    I'm pretty sure Blizzard won't bar you from playing any race. It'd be stupid of them to. So play as whatever you want.

      Still, I figured I'd enter as Terran in the off-chance. Sometimes it pays to plan ahead.

      Understandable, since the patch was meant to be released before 2014, and there is still no exact date when it will release.

        May as well post it here once more.

        Username: ScalgonDelta
        Race: Zerg/Protoss (so I've chosen...)

        Speaking of which, I don't know how well I'll do in the EU server, given I'm not from here.

        Im using my dad's laptop for now to practise, but this thing is horrible xD

        the F-keys (F1, F2, etc) cant be pressed with a single button (this keyboard sucks).
        Plus the shift key doesnt work properly either... I so hope my laptop is fixed soon before ill rip my hair out of SCV's not doing what i told them since Shift messed up again -_-

        Never in my life had i such low APM as when i started SC2

          It's one of those laptops that you have to hit an Fn key to use the function buttons, isn't it? I feel your pain, but my misfortune is mine is the best system in the house for gaming currently. Also, no external mouse, which surprises the heck out of some people on league of legends with how I manage to do what I do on a touchpad.

          I'm don't use an external mouse either haha

          Personally I think we should all just be thankful Shadow's APM has been cut because normally he is about as fast as pros.

          Race (Protoss, Terran, Zerg or Random): Random

          Trying to refamiliarize with all the races so I'm not sure if this will stay the same or not.
