The Tournament

Battle Brawl is a Western title match between North America and Europe, with one team emerging as the victor, taking their piece of the $50,000 Prize Pool, and showing that their region is the Best in the West.

The Qualifiers were held on February 24 & 25, and took 16 teams (eight per region) down to just four finalists. If you missed those matches you can watch the VoDs over on our official YouTube channel.

This tournament, like our Regionals and Global Championship are Mix’n’Match format, meaning teams will play both 1v1 and 3v3 matches to determine the winner. 1v1 match wins gain a team 1 point, while a 3v3 win will gain them 2 points. For more details check out the Battle Brawl overview.

March 23 will be a round robin-style 4-set tournament to determine the seeding for the finals. The Day 2 finals on Saturday, March 24, will be an 8-set double elimination tournament, with the winner taking home $21,000 and the Battle Brawl title. Head over to our Prize Pool Announcement article for the full breakdown on prizing.

 

Meet the Teams

Our four finalists are the two North American teams Guardian and Genericname 12345, and two European teams Bowlcute Fan Club and Bad Intentions. We caught up with both teams after the Qualifiers to see how they were feeling coming out of those matches, and their focus as they look forward to the Battle Brawl weekend.

We also cut down the Qualifiers into each team’s best moments in our Top Plays video series:
