Team 62 got PWN in the very 1st match to take place. Even though it was 8(us) v 10(those badarses), it was alot of fun. Good luck Team 61! Goodluck also to the other GAP team, Team 123(I think) and goodluck to my old clan DnD. If you gotta play, play Drunk n Deadly!

This sounds awesome, but it is too bad I suck at FPS multi-player. I will watch the action though, and hopefully pick up some pointers on how to be better on-line. Good luck and it looks like whoever gets in can't lose either way (great prizes).

Join team 66 now! First game of halloween, we need some foes too join 65 it's open for players too.

please join team 9, we need more players. Don't worry I'm pretty good. My K/D is like more than 1.4 but my real K/D is more than 2.0 cause of my friends messing up my K/D. We have 10 players but we need people in reserve. Don't worry, if you're good, you can replace other members in the tournament including me if you're better. I plan to win this so I need players. the best players will get to play in the tourney but everyone should show up so in case some people don't show up.

I'll think about it. If you guys do a Warhawk tournament I'll dive in to it head first, no doubt!

While Resistance is a great game, i never felt as part of a team as I needed to be on other games such as Warhawk, GeOW, or RS:V. I probably won't be joining this tourney, becuase I value teamwork over skill any day. You can have the worst team ever, but if they're all working togeather, cooperatively, towards a common goal, you are indestructable.

Ugh another shooter-based tournament... can't we get some variety GameSpot? That being said, this tournament is a lot different from the others. Mainly the prizes... all Sony. The second place prize seems more enticing that the first one, at least to me. Also, looking at the slots available and this time accepting US&Canada members and with just "regular" registered users instead of "total access". This seems to GameSpot's biggest tournament yet. Too bad, no one seems to be joining. I see a lot of spots left.
