The WardiTV Americas Open is an event which will run throughout October on WardiTV. We've found it difficult to schedule events this month in our usual time zones due to other competitions and so we have decided to run an event which runs at American-friendly times. This is an open event and there are no regional restrictions, but the times, servers & (most) invites will be Americas based. This is something we have not done before and so we are excited to see how it turns out!
Dates & Format
Two single-elimination qualifiers will award $25 to the first place finishers as well as qualification to the main event for the top three finishers in each qualifier.
