With the kind support of OSC and Matcherino, Proxy Tempest is proud to present The Great Christmas Rumble to round up a successful and long year of tournaments!
The format is super easy:
2 for NA, 2 for EU, each of them is replacing the respective regular Open tournament on the days they are held, but award no prize money initially.
Top 4 of each qualifier will proceed to play in the main event.
The main event is a single elimination bracket consisting of 3 days, with 5 series being played on each of the days.
Series are Bo5 until the semi final, final is Bo7.
It is possible to pre play a series if one of the players qualified has no possibility to play on the main event day, but the focus should be to play the series live.
Now that sounds super easy, right? Let’s get to the important part, the prize pool. Together with OSC and Matcherino, Proxy Tempest has been able to scrape together a 800$ prize pool, divided between the players as follows:
Prize pool for Main event:
1st: $300 + 300 OSC points
2nd: $200 + 200 OSC points
3rd/4th: $50 + 100 OSC points each
5-8th: $25 + 40 OSC points each
9-16th: $12.5 +15 OSC points each
plus participation and bounty bonusses, too!
