Map Pool

Maps are still being considered! To see the current map pool, and to voice your opinion, join the Discord:


Do you have a team? Sign them up here!
Are you looking for a team, or more teammates? Join the Discord to find people to play with!
If you’re a solo player unable to find a team, you may register for a Wild Card team here.


We use Discord to communicate during the event. Each team gets a voice and text channel — you will use these channels to communicate with each other & with our referees during the event. Important announcements and updates will also be sent in the discord.

Please make sure you and your entire team are in the Discord before registration closes.

You can join the Discord here:


All teams must have at least one player online who is fluent in English. Furthermore, teams must stay in their Discord channel while playing. Other voice communication services are not allowed. Keep in mind that by being on a roster for a team in the tournament, you agree to our tournament rules.

During the tournament, teams are expected to be ready for their matches (in Discord) 15 minutes in advance, and will not be given more than 5 minutes to get ready in game once the round has started. Matches will not be delayed due to teams not being ready.

You can find the full, detailed ruleset here.


In our tournaments, we use screensharing as a means to find cheaters. By registering for this tournament, you agree to being screenshared by us if we deem it necessary. Screenshares will always be performed by especially trained staff members, with the utmost respect for your privacy. Please consult our full length screenshare policy by clicking here.


Want to prepare for the tournament? There’s a few ways you can practice:


Every week, people play hundreds of conquest matches in our Ranked Discord. Once 10 people are in the queue voice channel, teams are picked, and a 5v5 match starts. CTW queue is now available on the weekends!

In our Event Discord, you can find another team to scrimmage in the #looking-for-scrims channel, and a scrim host to set up a server for you in #looking-for-host.
