What are we playing?
For our first tournament, we’ve chosen two awesome games: Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Rocket League. Participating companies can enter up to four teams for each game, consisting of four players plus one substitute for Call of Duty, and three players plus one substitute for Rocket League.
How can I communicate with other players?
A team captain must be nominated to communicate on behalf of your team and check in with mods prior to the start of each game. Players will also be added to a tournament Discord server, where they can chat.
What platforms can I play on?
PC and console players unite! Crossplay is enabled. This means that you can play on: PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, or Xbox One.
Note that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X players will have to play on PlayStation 4/Xbox One game versions, respectively.
How will the tournament run?
Each team will be placed into a pool and will play on each of the two evenings of play. At the end of the round robin play, your standing will determine who you’ll play in the finals and which league you’ll be placed in, i.e. if you place in the top two in your pool, you’ll be placed in the highest finals pool with other teams who also finished top two in their pool. From here, there will be quarterfinals, semi-finals and finals.

What charity can we support?
You're welcome to support any charity you wish. Once your team is entered, please create a Just Giving page in support of your charity of choice and drum up some noise about it to your wider network! All the money raised through your Just Giving page will go directly to the charity, with the chance of being topped up at the end of the tournament - depending on how well your team does. If you finish 1st in any division, your charity also gets a portion of the profits of the tournament.
