Prizes will be awarded at the end of the tournament thanks to all of our sponsors.  The prize structure will be announced at the start of the tourney.  Clan Leaders will bear the responsibility of dividing up any prizes between their clan; the prizes will be sent to the leaders.

Though we have 6 vendors that have confirmed sponsorship, thus far I have received prizes from only 5 companies as of 05-17-2003.  I am not receiving large quantities of prizes to give a way.  I will give out the prizes in a fair manner.  That being the case, if the first or second place clan has a large roster, I won't have enough prizes to give something to every member.

All prizes that I receive will be given away.  I have no control over the products or quantities that a sponsor sends.  Please be aware that if your clan wins their might not be enough prizes for all of your team members.  All prizes will be sent to the clan leader.  It is up to this person to decide how the prizes are distributed to their clan.

In order to have your GR? match broadcast by GTV, the server you are playing on must have a PB variable set to allow the GTV client to stay connected (since it's technically a 'bot'). This variable is a 'mask' which means it will match as much as possible from left to right.

From PB Server Guide
PB_SV_Specname - If a special spectator client "bot" is used on the server, this setting should hold the player name corresponding to that client so that the PB Server will know this is not a real player; if the player with this name ever has a non-zero score, the "special" status is lost

From PB for Q3A FAQ
How do I set up my PunkBuster server to allow GTV clients? Set the pb_sv_specname PB Setting to the first few letters of the playername used by GTV clients that will connect. That way, the PB Server will keep the connecting GTV clients in SPEC status as long as there is 0 score for that "player". For example, add 'pb_sv_specname GTV' to the pbsv.cfg or pbsvuser.cfg file in the server's home "pb" folder.

So, if a server has 'pb_sv_specname GTV' set, GTV clients with the names 'GTV-NewDome' and 'GTV-Speakeasy' will both be able to stay on the server. If a 3rd GTV client were connected with the name 'MyGTV' it would be kicked after just a few minutes.

Note: 'GTV Client' in this case refers to the GTV server connected as a client to the Q3A server, not to be confused with spectator clients connected to the GTV server itself.
