School might be out for summer, but the games are still on! CSL is hosting a series of Overwatch and Hearthstone tournaments during the Summer with $4,000 and $2,000 prize pools respectively. Win some cool cash while honing your skills with your collegiate team!
There will be a total of (4) one-day tournaments for each game spread throughout the Summer (see schedule below). Each tournament will be a simple bracket and will play out entirely on the same day as opposed to the normal long CSL season format.
Registration opens two weeks before each tournament and is open until the end of the Thursday before each tournament, respectively; registration is FREE and teams may elect to participate in as few or as many tournaments as they would like - each tournament is an independent event so registration for each is also independent.
There is no limit to the amount of registered teams per school, but each player may only play for 1 team for the duration of a tournment, similarly to any lower division CSL leagues.
Compile your rosters (or use an existing team) by registering/verifying your CSL player accounts, creating your team and adding your teammates, and prepare to enroll your team under each separate tournament when registration opens under the TOURNAMENTS tab of the website: Overwatch Tournaments and Hearthstone Tournaments.
*Note* - If a team registers and forfeits after being placed in a bracket, they may be removed from all remaining Summer tournaments.
Prize pools are split up as follows:
OW - $4,000 total
HS - $2,000 total
There will be a total of (4) tournaments, each with an independent bracket and registration process. If you want to participate in all of them, you are free to, however do remember that you need to enroll your team in each individual tournament as registration opens!
Each tournament will begin at the usual CSL start time of 12pm Pacific and will run for several hours until the bracket is finished the same day. In order to facilitate a smooth bracket, all coordinators must provide their Discord information to their respective tournament admin email so that admins and other coordinators can communicate with them during the tournament, as needed.
All normal CSL rules and eligibility requirements are in effect; players who are currently taking full time courses during the Summer, are continuing full time students, or graduated during the school year (after Fall/Winter/Spring quarters/semesters) are eligible to compete during the Summer. Specific rules and major details are listed on each game's respective rules page, pending updates in the coming days: OW Rules and HS Rules.
Tournament is online only, bracket-only, and continuous play.
If you have any questions, contact us at [email protected] and [email protected] for more information. A tournament admin will also be available at all default match times by email or live through DISCORD in the OW/HS Tournament Help chats.
