The tournament will begin October 30 with online play and will be played every Tuesday until November 12. At that point, the final two teams for the tournament's LAN final will be decided. The bracket will be seeded by previous tournament results if available, and by SR otherwise. If neither tournament results nor SR are available, the team will be randomly seeded.
All matches during the online portion will be streamed from the RAID Studio at https://www.twitch.tv/watchraid.
Teams will play on the latest Overwatch patch and will be able to pick from a select number of maps. The maps available to play in the tournament will be King's Row, Eichenwalde, Junkertown, Route 66, Temple of Anubis, Volskaya Industries, Lijiang Tower and Ilios. In the event a best-of-five series goes to the fifth map, the final map of the series will be Nepal. Should any map end in a tie, a best-of-one Oasis game will be played to determine the winner of that map.
The winners of the tournament will take the entirety of the prize pool home as their reward. Signups for the tournament have already closed.
