Ultimate Team Tournament: Volume 2

highlight
Hi all!

Currahee and Sturmpanther are honored to announce the Company of Heroes 2 Ultimate Team Tournament: Volume 2. We knew you wanted more after the positive resonance to the first Ultimate Team Tournament, which we held in the Spring of 2018. SO let's get right into the good stuff!


Tournament format




Instead of one large bracket, this tournament will feature two qualification rounds Each of the sub-brackets will include up to 32 teams, who meet the criteria to play. Both of the qualification rounds will take place on individual days, so if your team does not reach the main round on day one you might as well try again on day two of the qualifiers.

The four top teams from each qualifying tournament will find themselves in the main round of the tournament where they will compete for the ultimate victory. The seeding for the main event will be determined by the results of the qualification rounds. To keep it fair, the best teams from day two will be seeded lower than the teams from day one.


Sign-up procedure




Sign-ups are open from 14th of April untill 13th of May.

All teams that want to participate please please join the official Tournament Discord server.

1) Both team members must have completed at least one automatch game in 2v2 or 1v1 in the sign-up window.
