The battles will be Best of 3, Single Elimination and tracked on Challonge. You can find the tournament page HERE! You will need to make an account, but don't worry, it's free and stupid easy.
The competition begins on Tuesday June 7, 2016 at 10 am EST. Once you sign up you will need to "check in" before the start time, but you can do so up to 2 days before the competition begins.
Once the tournament starts you will have up to 3 days to connect with your opponent and play your matches to determine who advances. Participants may continue to play through their matches so long as their opponent is ready and available, but please keep in mind we're trying to accommodate everyone, including those with busy lives while dealing with different time zones.
Submit your team for legal verification here! This is required, so please make sure your team is competition legal as any team not adhering to the rules and ban lists will be disqualified. You may also not make adjustments to your team once the competition has begun so make sure you're completely satisfied with it before battles begin!
There will be a match for Third Place as well with prizes going to the Top 3 competitors as well as a special challenge going to the winner of the competition! So everyone train hard. I'm looking forward to seeing all of you there!
