As many of us in the northern hemisphere are aware, it’s fucking cold! But it’s already March, so we’ve got only a few more weeks until we’re officially into spring. What better way to celebrate than playing some coh2?
As an ML Affiliate Event, this tournament will follow standard Master League rules. You can read them here. This includes the use of Tournament Mode and commander terminator beginning in the quarter finals. The biggest change, though, is the use of ColdTech! That’s right! Specific maps are to-be-determined, but in matches that are a Bo3 or Bo5, the first two games will be played on winter maps with ColdTech enabled, and in Bo7 matches the first three games will be played in this manner.
Players & Schedule
This tournament will be open for sixteen players. If there is enough interest among players to boost their ranking going into ML5 and future tournaments, thirty-two players will be acceptable.
Matches will begin at 14:00 UTC on Saturday, March 20th as well as 14:00 UTC on the following day. In the case of enough signups, the tournament will extend to the following weekend, the 27-28th of March.
As an ML Affiliate Event, the $700 prize pool is coming directly from the ML! First place will take home $400, second place $150, third place $75, and fourth place $25.
Sign up here. Signups close at 21:00 UTC on Wednesday, 17 March.
