What to expect of a tournament:
It’s pretty simple, the tournament will consist of a series of custom matches with the maps (and possibly settings) specified by the tournament.
You’ll have to be online a little before the tournament to get ready, join the designated chat channels, and get prepared to play. Check the challonge link and find your opponent, create or join the match and play. Afterwards, report the result to the TD and wait for your next match.
Due to the nature of RTS games, you may have to wait in between matches. Depending on the type of tournament, and accounting for delays, you should probably schedule about 45 minutes per match. For a typical 16 player double elimination, that would be around 5 matches. Of course, if you lose two fast matches, it could be as fast as 30 minutes for the entire competition!

How to join/create games on the day of the tournament:
Check if no game with your name exists, then create a custom, unmodded, game (UI mods are generally allowed). Name it according to the tournament, and your opponent's name. Set the correct map. Close all unused slots (may be designated in the forum post), and wait for your opponent.
Double check map version, options, faction and color, X up and go!

Reporting results:
Report the result of the match to the TD by writing the result in the competition channel. If possible, add the link to the replay in the vault.
Write the result clearly as <player1> <score1> - <player2> <score2>, so it can be recorded to Challonge.

Where do I see who I play next?
The competition is generally listed in Challonge. Follow the link on the forum post. You can find the bracket, the results that are already known, and the next matches.
Once you know who your next opponent is, you can start playing!
