Gauntlet StarCraft is happy to announce a weekly $50 Global Open!. ESL Americas Open was a staple among online events, with over two years of weekly content at NA friendly times. Gauntlet's very own Elementfini created the series, so we've decided to continue on with the tradition of weekly globals under the Gauntlet banner!
When? Every Sunday at 5 pm Central US
Sunday, Oct 15 10:00pm GMT (GMT+00:00)
Community Casters are welcome to cast the event up until the Semi-Finals

- Check in starts 30 minutes before the tournament. If you do not check in, you will be disqualified.
- Players will have 15 minutes to begin their match from the first time that both players are available. If a player does not respond within the allotted 15 minutes, their opponent will be awarded a walkover.
- This tournament is open to any player of any skill level. (GLOBAL)
- Join the "Gauntlet" in-game chat on the NA server to find your admins, casters, and opponents.
- The maps will be picked using the ABAB format used in WCS. The higher seed bans first (A). The second player bans (B). The bans continue until only three maps remain. The Higher seeded player then picks the first map, and the Lower seeded player picks the second map. (ABAB ABC)
- Games will be played on whichever server both players agree to. In the event an agreement cannot be reached, games must be played on the US Central server. If you are playing your games in another region, please make admin aware before switching servers.
- ALL of these rules, as always, are at the current admin's discretion.
We're happy to carry on the tradition of Sunday Opens in StarCraft II, we hope you'll sign up / join us!
