Key Dates
Signups close: January 2nd
Cup Dates: January 9th/10th

Entry Fees
The Invite division will have a fee of $10, and all other divisions will have a fee of $5 except for Amateur and Newcomer, which will be free. There will be no ringer fees so long as your team has 6 paid players.

Prize Pool
Qixalite will provide a month of premium access to their server bookings to the captain of each division winner.
The exact cash prize pool is directly tied to the number of signups. With a signup of 56 teams the prize pool would be about $1,900. The exact cash prize pool will be announced after signups close and teams are all paid up.

Structure
Similar to past RGL cups the tournament will run with multiple divisions, starting with a minimum of six divs and adjusting based on signups as needed.

Day one will be the group stages. Invite's group format will be announced after signups close, as it depends on how many invite teams sign up. The timing of it will not differ significantly from the other divs.
The rest of the teams will play four rounds of a swiss format on set maps (process, gully, snake, sunshine).

Day two will be the playoffs. The top half of the divisions (Invite structure TBD), will make playoffs for a chance at the prize pool for their div in a bracket. The exact format will vary on div size, so stay posted.
A consolation bracket will be formed from the bottom half of the div. Teams are able to opt-out of playing this stage should they choose to.

Schedule
Exact schedules for Invite will be announced alongside group format. Times in EST.
Day 1 will run from 6:00pm - 9:45pm, with each round having a 1hr 15 block to be played.
Day 2 is set to run between 6:00pm - 10:30pm

Servers
While teams are free to use their own servers, Qixalite will be providing a pool of servers that you can book within the RGL Discord. This process will work very similarly to the normal booking process for Qixalite servers.

Cup Specific Rules & Format

  • Due to the compressed nature of the cup, the typical NA format will not be run. Instead games will be played with timelimit 30 and winlimit 5, or winlimit 3 on KoTH. Golden caps are limited to 10 minutes, the team holding mid wins should time elapse.
  • Out of region participants are limited to two rostered per team, as in the regular season.
  • Invite teams are required to publicly upload their STV demos for all matches. Failure to do so will result in a major penalty, and carry a 20% deduction to any prize winnings.
