Gladiators is again back for a 3rd season! However, this season will be unlike any other... with Armor Critical's first ever Cash Tournament! The idea behind the tournament is to create some intense competition, as well as possibly bringing back older players to compete in the tournament. The funding for the tournament will be from community donations and money collected from the sale of icons.
Cash Handouts: The following is the cash distribution for team placements. All prizes are listed per-team.
1st Place - $600
2nd Place - $450
3rd Place - $300
4th Place - $150
5th Place - $120
6th Place - $90
7th Place - $60
8th Place - $30
Team Size: All games that will be played will be played in a 3v3 style. This is to distribute high skill-levels among various teams instead of stacking a lot of good players on one team. Your roster size, however, may have a minimum of 3 players and a maximum of 5. It's the team's responsibility to split the prize among the entire team.
Maps: Maps, the big question. As we are still discussing the maps to be used in the tournament, we are sure that most, if not all of these maps will be go-style maps. Currently, we are sticking to Capture the Flag only.
Schedule: All games will be played on the weekend, due to higher volumes of players being available at that time. If rescheduling is needed, all adjustments must be made the week prior to the game.
Signups: Signups will begin on October 27th at 12:00 AM EST until November 5th at 11:59PM . You must designate a Team Captain per-team and have a minimum of 3 players and a maximum of 5.
Feel free to hang out with us in the gladiators lobby! (/join gladiators)
More information regarding the tournament will be posted soon.

There are a few updates that we would like to let you know about.
Payout Structure: The payout structure has been changed a bit to further compensate lower-ranked teams in the tournament. The structure is as follows:
1st Place - $520 + $3/game
2nd Place - $370 + $3/game
3rd Place - $220 + $3/game
4th Place - $70 + $3/game
5th Place - $40 + $3/game
6th Place - $10 + $3/game
7th Place - $0 + $3/game
8th Place - $0 + $3/game
9th Place - $0 + $3/game
10th Place- $0 + $3/game
Also, now instead of ONLY handing out a placement prize, we've decided to give teams a set amount of money per-game played. The amount that we've come to is $3.00. This amount applies to every team that plays within the tournament. This motivates the teams that are constantly losing, to still play. As for forfeits, we're going with a 3 strike rule. If a team manages to forfeit 3 or more games, they lose half the money that they would have gotten.
Total Prize Pool (10 Teams): $1,809.00
Signup-Extension: We have decided to extend the sign-ups by two days. Now the final date to sign up your teams will be: Friday November 7th, 11:59PM.
Maps: The following maps have been decided to be played in the Tournament.
GO2011 (15549 tiles)
Revolution (12624 tiles)
Challenge (9864 tiles)
bubblek2 (9546 tiles)
Joy (4507 tiles)
Stank (4397 tiles)
