    The first KZ Tournament I held reached 286 viewers, a prize pool of $212, and ended with @burhác beating @kohze in a 3-2 Grand Finals. It was well-received. To see the entire 1st KZ monthly tournament, you can watch the playlist here.

    So, lets host a second one.

    This is the second monthly* KZ tournament that I will be hosting. It will be hosted on my twitch with the current casters as myself and @Zpamm. The servers have been provided by House of Climb, and funding has been supported by the community!

    The time planned for this tournament is Saturday, February 11th, 2017, at 1pm CST, on twitch
    It will be best of 3 until the grand finals, which will be best of 5.

    If you want to participate as a player or would like to apply as a fill in, please sign up here. Tournament has completed.

    For those who want to see who has signed up, view the spreadsheet here.

    The maps for the tournament will be
    :
    kz_summercliff2_go
    kz_paradise
    kz_sz_halicarnassus
    kz_phamous
    kz_dzy_reach
    kz_sukblock_v2_fixed
    kz_spacus

    Rules:
    Each player gets 2 vetoes. In the grand finals, each player gets 1 veto.

    This will be a 1v1 !challenge pro run.
    First person to reach the end timer with an active timer wins.
    If you noclip or teleport to the timer, you will forfeit that map to the other player.

    Current Prize Pool for all tournaments: $720

    Current Prize Pool for THIS tournament: $360
    1st Place: 70%
    2nd Place: 20%

    This is like asking an american football player to cast a soccer match because both sports involve running on a grass field chasing a guy with a ball.

    Don't get me wrong, I really like seeing pro players like Tabsen showing interest in kz, but I believe he himself said he hasn't really played too much kz and generally doesn't know THAT much about it.

    I'd rather not have to mute the stream again because last tourny had some unkown(?) guy casting, who was saying some really basic/stupid things like "Seems like X (person) knows where to go" or "X person is going forward". And I don't think that guy even played half the maps. I would rather hear somewhat technical casting, pointing out noducks, blockskips, safe routes/ time skips etc

    I think teleporting to timer is fine once the map has already started, especially if you mess up. It's teleporting to the timer before you start your time is considered cheating. It was something I saw being done on kz_peak_global on the last tournament, and I came to the realization that it not fun for the runner nor the viewer to watch someone walk back to the timer.

    However, it still stands that if you go to the timer before your time is started, it is considered cheating.
