This 1v1, single stage, double elimination tournament will bring together the best players from all around the world to battle it out and prove who is the true champion. This is an official event organised by Rafidka (rafidka#3788 on Discord).

But that's not all – we're not just crowning the best pro players. This tournament also gives amateur players the opportunity to earn the title of the best amateur players and take home a trophy. A total of 48 commanders will be invited to participate, with monetary prizes going to the top 3 pros and trophies to the top 3 amateur players.

A tournament... with a twist!

We also have one more surprise in store for you! In the final round of the tournament, we will be introducing a secret map that has never been seen before. This twist will test the adaptability and flexibility of the best players, as they must demonstrate their skills on an unknown battlefield. It's a chance for the ultimate champion to prove that they are not only a master of their favorite maps, but also able to adapt to new challenges and emerge victorious. 

Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to improve your skills, make new friends, and potentially win big. Spots are limited, so register as soon as possible:
