Welcome one and all to the annual Sleuthville AVH Tournament 2012! I would like to extend a special welcome to the Sleuth’s oldies who have recently returned to the game, and a happy hello to the new players who have joined the community. In the spirit of friendly competition, and in the hopes of fostering new friendships and community togetherness, I hope that both new and old will join in this competition.

The format will be 16 detectives, randomly paired off into teams of two by a third party, to face one other team. (This hunt will go forward only if there are enough players participating [16]. If not, either the entry date deadline will be extended or the tournament will be cancelled altogether. )

For this competition, players going through Cairo will have one day taken off of their totals. The winning team will be the one with the lowest combined number of days for hunt completion. Failed hunts will not count against you; you will not be disqualified. If you fail your hunt and would like to start another, you may, but the day count will start from the official start date of the round.

The rules:

- As soon as you are matched up with your partner, please POST your team name on this thread.
- PM me as soon as possible if you find that your hunt goes through Cairo, so I can keep accurate records.
- In the spirit of competition, trash-talking is allowed, just as long as it is friendly and appropriate.
- If you are unable to compete in a round for whatever reason, you are allowed to ask someone to sub in for you for that round only. This privilege may only be used once, and only in emergencies. The player who is subbing in for you may be anyone who is not competing in the current round, even someone who was not initially entered in the competition.

You may:
-Travel to Shangri-La the night before, but NOT start the hunt
-Use a Compact Travel Kit
-Use head of faction privileges
-Use agencies and apartments to swap gear

You may not (enforced only by the honor code):
-Use sidekick cases (for either clues or travel)
-Enter second/third detectives etc.

I reserve the right to disqualify any player from this competition at any time for breaking any of the rules.

The winning team(s) from each round will go on to the next round until a winning team is determined. In the event of a tie, both teams will move on to compete in a triple threat pair matchup. The last team standing wins. Anyone who would like to join, please POST here. Participants will be gathered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The first matches will start on **Monday, June 4, 2012** at 0:00 Sleuth Server Time (SST). Each following round of the competition will start on the next Monday at 0:00 SST, unless a match takes longer than expected. In that case, things will be adjusted accordingly and you will be updated as soon as possible.

The winning team will split the grand prize of $500,000. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to PM me, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I hope to see you at the starting line. And as always, have fun! :)

Riza this is wonderful - thanks for organising the tournament!

I'll definitely take part and will post back here as soon as I'm partnered up.

Question: can each agency field only one team or can there be multiples?

CORRECTION: The first matches will start on **Monday, June 11, 2012** at 0:00 SST. This is to allow sufficient time for sign-up and preparation.

Sounds like you have another winner contest, I can't imagine you won't have enough Detectives to make a go of it.
