Tournaments are a type of competitive play in AWBW. As of June 2018, there are regular tournaments started each month. Please refer to http://awbw.amarriner.com/viewtournament.php for a list of tournaments.
Usually the tournaments are single elimination, but other formats may be implemented later.
Currently the top 1/4 of players are seeded by rating. That helps prevent the top players from all playing each other too early in the tournament. After that, the remaining 75% of players are seeded randomly
Signing up for a tournament can be done at http://awbw.amarriner.com/viewtournament.php when you are logged in. Please note that the sign-up period for each tournament is limited and you can only sign up for "Waiting" Tournaments and not for "Current" or "Completed" ones. Please keep in mind that activity is expected for tournament players. Inactivity can lead to warnings, or even bans for future tournaments.
During tournaments, the games are usually automatically generated. Each player will get assigned a CO randomly, with the chance to change the CO after the game has been created for you. After selecting the desired CO, you can press ready. With both players ready, the game will start. If one of the players does not ready up, the game will start automatically after a certain delay, depending on the boot settings (i.e. 2days for standard tourneys).
Tournaments often focus on specific topics or themes, usually based around the categories available for maps.
