Hi all, OrD here! :D

This tournament is based on the current Blizzard Ladder Map-Pool (blmp) to give us Gold-plated folk an opportunity to practice our skillz in a competitive atmosphere where a loss doesn't mean falling down the ladder.

We want to provide a competitive environment that aids in overcoming "ladder-anxiety."

So... TLDR much? My fault on that everybody. In essence the above post says:

I'm an official z33k.com Tournament organizer and I run a tournament Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 10pm EST for Bronze, Silver, and Gold League players.

Here's the link: http://www.z33k.com/users/45328

Thanks!

So... *bump.*

The tournament is casted, VoD's go on YouTube (OrDStarcraft) and there is a highly competitive atmosphere to help players overcome "ladder anxiety."

Looking forward to seeing you there! (p.s. Please tell me if this post was where you found out about "Good as Gold" on z33k.com)

Aeveras: I'm not seeing the message, yet. My profile's name is Or Draconis (OrD) and the link should just be facebook.com/OrD.SC2 - please try me again there or through Twitch (stream profile: www.twitch.tv/Or_D)

Edit: I'll just put the message here, it doesn't have any personal information or anything :P

Hi,
I saw your post on the SC2 forums regarding the Good as Gold tournament and was wondering if you'd be interested in having me help cast one of them. I'm looking to improve my casting skills and get more community exposure.
You can check out my stuff here: http://www.youtube.com/user/SquallCasting/videos
Thanks!

You can contact me at SquallCasting@gmail.com for further information and whatnot.

I'll be solo casting tonight, but Aeveras and other guest-casters will be participating this week so stay tuned for those announcements! In the meantime...

Get your mind off the fact that half the world got to play Diablo III before you did by playing in "Good as Gold" tonight!

(and yes there is still one tomorrow, so make sure to take a break and keep those SC2 skills sharp!)

I'll be watching the stream. These kind of tourneys are fun. Lower leagues do some whacky things.
Starcraft2 all week! Monday-Thursday are going to be streams and pro streams then GSL finals on Friday/Saturday night/morning and MLG Spring all weekend.

Jack, thanks for coming out! Your feedback about an earlier start time is being echoed by several other participants.

If anyone else likes or dislikes the idea of starting the tourney at 9pm EST instead of 10pm
EST please let me know by commenting on this thread or on the thread on TeamLiquid.
