Tournaments & Game Events

These tournaments are run by the Laclede’s LAN staff. Entrants will direct questions to the staff table.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Saturday through Sunday: Double-Elimination Tournament - Reddit Thread

  • 5v5
  • Best of Three
  • Round Length: 1:45
  • Maps: de_inferno, de_nuke, de_cache, de_mirage, de_overpass, de_train, de_cobblestone

The first team to win 16 rounds will be awarded the win. Teams will take turns banning out maps from a list of 7 until a map is decided upon. Players will play a Knife Round to determine sides at the beginning of the match. When the server for a particular match goes up, teams have ten minutes to join before the start of the match.

Winner’s bracket advantage will be applied to keep finals to one match (since a team that goes undefeated through the upper bracket would normally have the potential for two matches in the finals).


Sunday: Single-Elimination Tournament - Reddit Thread

We will use the current Competitive format. Changes to the format may be implemented at the event with consent of all team captains and contingent upon player turnout to provide the best tournament experience.

Season 3 Competitive format can be found here.


Saturday through Sunday: 5v5 Captain’s Mode Double-Elimination Tournament - Reddit Thread

  • Winner is the team who completely destroys their opponent’s Ancient or forces their opponent to surrender.

The tournament will be played as Best of 3 double-elimination until the Winners’ Bracket and Losers’ Bracket have finished, at which point a final, 5-round Grand Final will be played between the last two teams. Tournament structure may be changed to Swiss/Round Robin if fewer teams participate. Any changes to tournament structure will be discussed with team captains before being implemented.


Sunday: Double-Elimination Conquest Tournament - Reddit Thread

  • Rounds must be completed in 90 minutes.
  • All games will be Standard Duels. This means that we are using Standard card restrictions.
  • Matches will utilize a best of 5 format with 3 classes per participant each match. Each player will submit three unique classes and Standard decklists prior to the tournament. Each game in a match is blind pick for both players. When a player wins a game, the winning player cannot use the class that was used for that game for the remainder of the match. The player that loses a game can keep the same class or switch to a different class at their choice, with such a switch being a ‘blind pick.’ The first player to win 3 games wins the match.
  • All players are required to submit a screenshot of their decks to the tournament admins prior to playing. Text is also acceptable, as long as it conveys all the information needed to prove the deck has not changed after the start of the tournament.

Put together a team of 1-3 people and build the best base based on a scoring system we provide! Use limited resources efficiently to fulfill the objectives and win! This challenge will last all weekend, so you can use it to fill in your down time without interfering with other tournaments.

This tournament will use the original PC edition of Minecraft, which runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. We will NOT be using the Windows 10 Beta. For more information, please consult this page.
