This is the first official announcement of the 2v2 Tournament we'll be hosting, but there is a really cool 2v2 grassroots movement going on, as before we even thought about hosting this, beastyqt's community had helped fundraise $300+ so credit where it's due, and thanks to the fans for helping make this happen!
We will host 4 "Qualifier" Cups in total, 2 focused on North American region and 2 focused on Europe region. Eligibility is open to anyone that is not currently on our blacklist, meaning you can play in all 4 cups if you so choose. In the event that players are caught sneaking into the tournament, they will be removed upon discovery and the bracket they ruined will not be replayed, however a team may be chosen to be invited back and replace them instead of just creating a bye in the brackets.
Map pool will be Ladder maps.
All matches will be Bo3, except for the finals which will be a Bo5.
We will use our "Post Veto" (aka the "F*ck you veto") system with pre-picked maps for each round. If both teams + admin agree, they may substitute the map pick system for one of their own choosing.
Top team from each region will be invited back to the playoffs at our discrection. Please note that winning does not guarantee you a playoffs spot, and in the event the same team wins multiple qualifiers we will invite at our own discretion
