Prizes

As mentioned earlier, our invited teams will be competing for a prize pool of $10,000! This pool will be broken down to accommodate six of the eight teams in prizes. Meaning, one set win in bracket ensures your team leaves with a prize!

  • 1st Place - $5,000 + Gem Package
  • 2nd Place - $2,500 + Gem Package
  • 3rd Place - $1,500 + Gem Package
  • 4th Place - $500
  • 5th Place - $250

Since this is a double elimination tournament, there will be a tie for fifth place. Each team that places 5th will receive $250.

Rules

All game rules will be used for both the WILDCARD event, and the $10,000 invitational.

  • Draft style play!
  • Each team will be awarded two (2) god bans per game
  • Each player will pick a god, in draft style selection. 1-2-2-2-2-1
  • In the event of a game restart, all players much choose the same gods.
  • In the case of disconnect or equipment malfunction, the flowchart is as follows:
    • If first blood is not achieved for either team -or- minions have not spawned, the game will be restarted.
    • If multiple players are disconnected, the decision for match replay will be handled on a case by case basis.
  • Players must show sportsmanlike conduct throughout the event. Trash talk is tolerated as long as it’s moderate and tasteful. A show of disrespect to a player or tournament official, or misuse of equipment provided to players at the venue may result in a yellow card.
    • A warning may be issued before a yellow card, but is not necessary.
    • Two yellow cards will equal a red card, which is a disqualification from your current set. Teams in Winner’s Bracket will fall to the Loser’s Bracket. Teams in the Loser’s Bracket will be eliminated.
  • Any attempt or threat of physical violence by a player in tournament is an immediate disqualification for that player for the remainder of the event, who may be replaced by a substitute if permitting. That team will suffer an immediate red card.
  • Players found attempting to watch projectors, other screens, or are found “ghosting” will be subject to a red card.
  • All rules are subject to change.
