Recommended Posts



In order to participate in GSL Twist 2018, you must meet the following requirements:



  • Teams may be between 2 and 4 people.
  • You must sign up before the deadline. Signup Thread
  • Your gamertag must have achievements dated at least one year ago.
  • Your join date on the forum must be no later than April 1st, 2018 (if a subscriber, no limit).
  • You must have at least 20 posts in the forum, including at least one in the last 30 days.
  • Your profile on xbox.com must be set to public.
  • You must be able to sign in to LIVE at least once on July 7th, 2018, for our scanner to load your profile.
    * EXCEPTION. If a team of 3 members can recruit a non member to join the site and their team, the post count and join by date tournament requirements will be excused, provided the team requests this exemption in their sign up post.

During the competition, the following also applies:



The Twist

Only YOURSELF and ONE other participate on a team can have teamed up before (Post GSL 12).


Meaning, if myself, Hans Gruber, Toucan Sam, and Milhouse Van Houten wish to be on a team, but Hans, Sam, and I were on a team last year, one of us must find a different team. But if (1A) Sam and (1B) Milhouse were on a team and (2A) myself and (2B) Hans were on a team, then the four of us may be on a team.


If you teamed up in 2007, it doesn't matter. We're only looking at data after GSL 12.


All entires will be reviewed manually, so please make our lives easy.


  • From when you sign up until the end of the competition, you must not change your gamertag or your XBA profile name, and your Xbox LIVE profile must remain set to public.
  • If a member of your team is found to have cheated achievements, even if it was 5 years ago, your entire team is disqualified.
  • There will be no mid-competition replacements. i.e. if a participant gets weary of the competition and decides to quit, the rest of his team will just have to deal with it.
  • If your XBA account gets banned for any reason, you and your entire team are out of the competition. If this occurs during signups, non banned members are free to find new teams.
  • If you suspect someone has cheated, you can either report it at this link or contact bplayak directly.



Victory Conditions


  • The winning team will be determined by the largest team score during the competition period.
  • Team scores are equal to the combined total score of all team members
  • The competition starts at 12 am PST on July 8th, 2018 and ends at 11:59 pm PST on July 28th.
  • The MVP will be the individual with the largest gamerscore increase during the competition period.
  • Forum Awards will be given to each member of the top 3 teams, the overall MVP and the MVP of each team


Remember, only yourself and one other participant are allowed to have played together in a GSL tournament AFTER GSL 12. You can have 2 and 2 as long as each group has only played with each other and not the other group.
