We are excited to announce our next mini event: Stratus Bowl II! This will be our second tournament using the 5v5 Flag Football gamemode. This will follow our big 7v7 Conquest Tournament -- that is still happening first.
Teams must have a minimum of 6 players registered on their roster with a maximum of 8 and must field a minimum of 4 out of 5 players in official matches.
Flag Football is a fairly new gamemode, pioneered into competitive by Stratus, where two teams of 5 fight in a long arena. There is one flag which spawns in the middle of the map, and both teams must capture it in their goal on their left side. Each match lasts 8 minutes, the team with the most captures wins.
Teams are expected to be ready for their matches 15 minutes before their start time, and will not be given more than 5 minutes to get ready. Officials will not delay a match regardless of whether a team is ready or not.
The tournament will take place on the weekend of February 6th - February 7th, and will start at 11:00am EST. The format of the tournament will be finalized after we know the exact number of registered teams. This information will be released in the coming days after registration closes.
Registration is closed right now. As the event draws closer, we will open registration for both regular teams and Wild Card teams.
Teams will face each other in Flag Football maps. We are currently in the process of creating several Flag Football maps, so we will post the finalized Map Pool at a later date. It may or may not include some maps from the first Stratus Bowl. In the meantime, if you'd like to scrimmage, you can play those old maps.

Discord is used for voice communication during the event. Each team is given their own voice and text channels, which you will use to communicate with your teammates, as well as with our referee staff.
Make sure your entire team has joined the Events Discord.
Scrimmages can be hosted on /server Event1, Event2, or Event3. Or, you can purchase a Personal Server from our shop, and host them yourself there. You can look for a scrim opponent by typing in the #looking-for-scrim channel in our Events Discord.
All teams must have at least one player 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 are agreeing to be subject to our tournament rules. Links to the ruleset can be found below:
Like previous tournaments, we will use screensharing as a way to detect cheaters, and we’ll also be using 3rd party tools. By registering for this tournament, you also agree to being screenshared by us using our tools if requested. Please consult our full length screenshare policy at stratus.network/ss. This tournament will also utilize our anti-cheat, this will be used to better help us find cheaters.
Tournament winners will receive a Tournament Winner rank in our Events Discord, as well as a trophy on their Forums profile. (once trophies have returned.)
