OverWatch preseason bracket is a chance to practice before the 8 week ladder begins. Tournament will start at 9pm, registration starts at 8pm.
The purpose of these weekly ladders are:
- Allow centers to feature game days/nights around a game to help build their local community for that game
- Give players from centers a chance to play in organized brackets that would be impossible for most centers to run on a weeknight for a single store
- Give our "regulars" something to play for that is not invaded by out of store/town/state/country teams and players showing up for prizes on a weekend tournament
At 9 PM EST we will start brackets for that nights game. Centers can field as many teams/players as they want. We will have Discord channels running for LFG players if you want to combine with another center to form a team.
The points for the ladders come from wins in the brackets. It is very simple, each win in the bracket gives a player 50 points. No penalty for losing, no complicated formula. The goal is to earn at least 250 points over 8 weeks to qualify for the finals. That is just 5 wins ANYTIME over the 8 week period.
What else is in it for the players? Well, each bracket win gives them 50 points which are also extra ggCircuit coins!
