  • Winner takes it all: $20 USD


  • First map is Rift.
  • Losing player each game picks next map. Each map may only be played once.
    • If all maps are used already, you may re-pick maps one time each.
  • Valid maps: Ashes, Badlands, Bedrock, Fissures, Frontier, Mirage, Rift, Vault.
  • No repeat leaders.
    • If all leaders are used already, you may re-pick leaders up to one time each.
  • No node strat - do not take nodes without the intent of killing Sentinels.
    • Exception: you can draw the Sentinels to attack an enemy minibase or units, and still capture the node.
    • Exception: Cannon Fodder can take nodes any way you want.
    • Players must use in-game chat or DMs to notify casters of the node-strat.
      • Casters will need to confirm for validity.
        • Mild cases of node strat will result in a warning (eg accidental retreats).
          • 3 warnings will result in a match loss.
        • Severe cases of node strat will result in a match loss (eg purposefully forced capture or cloak-based node strat). 
        • Resigning without admin permission will be counted as a loss.
  • 1 hour time limit.
    • If base and slot building count is even/very close, and neither player has a large army advantage, the game is a draw.
    • If one player has an army advantage, casters will send a final attack prompt. The outcome of this last attack determines whether a winner or a draw is called, based on the base/slot building count afterwards.
    • If one player has a clear base and slot building count advantage and their opponent is not in a position to even out the game with the next attack, the player with more slot buildings wins.
