COH2.ORG is excited for Relic's War Paint Championship Series. This is a 1v1 tournament that invites up to 16 of the top competitors from the Go4CoH2 ESL series to compete alongside 16 wild cards which enter the tournament through two open qualifier rounds.

Funded by purchasing War Paint Skins through the in-game store, each skin purchased between now and September 4th contributes both to the tournament's prize pool, as well as unlocking a variety of rewards for those who have purchased skins.

Each round of the tournament will be live streamed on Relic's Twitch Channel.

MATCH CHECK-IN

- Once paired with an opponent, both players are required to check-in. Once a player checks in, the opponent will have 15 minutes to also check-in or they will automatically forfeit the match.

**IMPORTANT**

IF THESE STEPS ARE NOT FOLLOWED, THE MATCH MAY BE TREATED AS AFK IN WHICH THE LOWER BRACKET PLAYER WILL AUTOMATICALLY FORFEIT THE MATCH




Regardless if you have coordinated with your opponent and stated your match, if you do not check-in for each match on Battlefy before it starts, you will automatically forfeit your match and be dropped from the tournament. In other words, if you do not check-in for each match-up, regardless of the results of the match, it will count as a forfeit.

SCORE REPORTING
After each match, both players are required to report who won in the match’s PRIVATE CHAT feed on Battlefy. Any disputes will be handled by a Tournament Moderator who may require a replay of the match for review. The Tournament Moderator has final say regarding all match disputes.
