  • Three Bo5 Conquest 1024-capped Single Elimination Brackets.
  • Use the same 3 classes for the entirety of a Challenger Cup.
  • Only one deck per class can be used for each match.
  • Winner must change their class. Loser can keep OR change their class.
  • Blind pick. Opponents will declare classes but not the order of play.
  • You may sign up and play in any and all of the 3 cups.
  • Sideboarding is not permitted during a match.
  • If your opponent is not present 15 minutes after you are paired on the bracket, submit to match media a screenshot showing your attempts to add your opponent on the client, and give yourself a 3:0.
  • Once a Challenge has been initiated and accepted, canceling the Challenge (including disconnects) before the match has completed will result in a game loss. Not returning within 5 minutes will result in a match loss. Provide screenshots if this occurs.
  • Classes must be declared once in the Challenge screen. Screenshots of the declaration chatlogs must be submitted to match media for at least the first round. If match media cannot be uploaded a match statement can be made on each match page stating the 3 classes you will use.
Additional Notes:
Take screenshots of your results screen after every game and upload them to the match media. These will be used to prove your victories and speed up resolving conflicts such as when your opponent doesn't confirm results.
The top 3 matches of Challenger Cups A/B/C will be spectated and recorded by ESL Admins.
The top 2 players from each bracket will be eligible for the following weekend's ESL Legendary Series. The top 4 of each bracket will receive WC Points and be reached out to by an admin at the end of the cup to get information for prizes.
