I have received a fair few requests to bring back a more competitive based BF3 tournament. After carefully considering what would be best for the BF3 community at this point in time, I believe a 4 v 4 Squad Rush would be most appropriate.
I would also like to thank for the following sponsor and peers to make this tournament happen.
Corsair, Solemn and Redding.

I just have updated all your scores in Binary Beast, unfortunately BB doesn't record how many MCOM stations were remaining or how many rounds you won by.
Basically all BB reports is which team won and lost and gives the winner 3 competition points.
So I'm going to change the point system from now on. You don't need to record how many MCOM stations remained in the scrim, the only details you need to provide me is which TEAM WON and THE ROUND COUNT.
For example Team A vs Team Z
Team A Won
If Two Teams in the same group have the same amount of WINS and COMP POINTS then they will go into a BO3 map scrim to see who advances into the ELIMINATION roundsEdited 6 times, last edited 31/7/12 - 2:41pm
