Tour vs. LSCS FAQs

 

Tour of Texas & Lone Star Championship Series FAQ

Is my team required to participate if we qualify?
Tour
Yes - If a team finishes in the top 12 at the Tour of Texas Qualifier then the team is accepted into the Tour of Texas and must compete at the Tour Stop II and Finals.

LSCS
No - The qualified teams (the first 12 teams finishing after the top 12 at the Tour Qualifier) have the option to participate in the LSCS or not. If a team accepts, then they must participate in the next two stops in Waco and Houston.
How does my team register?
Tour
Teams can register for the Tour of Texas Qualifier on AES. Visit our Online Team Registration page for more information. Teams who qualify do not need to register for the Tour of Texas Stop II or Finals. They will be added automatically after the Tour of Texas Qualifier is completed.

LSCS
All teams who register and play in the 2017 Tour of Texas Qualifier are considered eligible for the LSCS. Entry into the LSCS is dependent on qualification (those finishing between 13th and 24th place at the Tour Qualifier).

How do I pay the entry fees?
Tour & LSCS
Each team must provide two checks. The first check will be the entry fee for the Tour of Texas Qualifier in the amount of $485 made payable to Austin Sports Center. The second check will be the entry fees for Stop II and Finals ($750), either for the Tour of Texas or LSCS, dependent upon qualification. Stop checks should made payable to Austin Sports Center as well. Please do not combine multiple team stop checks - these must be separate per team due to the qualification process.

Checks should be mailed to:
Austin Sports Center
Attn: Tour of Texas
425 Woodward St.
Austin, TX 78704
What happens to the stop checks if my team does not qualify?
Tour & LSCS
If a team does not qualify for the Tour of Texas and/or does not accept the offer to play in the LSCS then checks are voided and destroyed.
Is this a stay to save tournament?
Tour
Yes - The Tour of Texas Qualifier, as well as the Tour Stops, require teams to fulfill the stay to save requirements.

LSCS
No - The LSCS Stops do not require teams to fulfill the stay to save requirements but EM2 Housing is able to help teams find rooms at a good rate.
How will ties be broken down in determining qualification?
Tour
There will be no ties to break - the tournament will play down to the appropriate place for each division.

LSCS
A tie to determine which team qualifies for the LSCS will be determined by match, set, point ratio.
