      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

DreamHack announces ‘Senior tournament’ amongst others

DreamHack has announced four side competitive events that will run at the same time as its main DreamHack Summer 2017 tournament.
The four tournaments include an all-female tournament, a junior competition CSGO AWP Skins for those under 18, a free-for-all event for and perhaps the most interesting, the ‘senior’ tournament.
In an environment in which most players are in their early to mid twenties, save for Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas, having a tournament for gamers aged 30 and over is certainly a unique concept. This and the other three tournaments will be BYOC (Bring your Own Computer) and will run from June 17-20 at Elmia Fair in Jönköping, Sweden like the main contest. According to Yahoo Esports, the event “holds the Guinness World Record for highest number of computers in a LAN. ”
This match has the chance of turning into something like CS Reunion @ Inferno Online, a tournament operate by DreamHack last April for ex-1. 6 legends to show their skill once more. Players like Emil “HeatoN” Christensen of the classic SK 2003 squad would definitely be fan favourites but there are other legends who could make an appearance too.
One player who immediately comes to mind is the Brazilian Raphael “cogu” Camargo who was considered to be the best Brazilian CS player of all time. Someone else who might make an appearance is popular streamer Anomaly’s dad Papanomaly, who is often seen in videos either assisting with case unboxings or actually playing the game.
The prize winnings for the side tournaments are as follows:
1st place - 10, 000 SEK
2nd place - 5, 000 SEK
 3rd place - Product prizes
Esports Insider says: It is very considerate for DreamHack to create tournaments for people who might not have otherwise competed. It will definitely be a breath of fresh air from seeing the same teams compete against each other. Perhaps the Junior tournament situation will show us some great up-and-coming legends that might get a chance at their own pro contract.
