The DM Revival Cup is a rolling event series to provide the community with practice opportunities until Age of Mythology: Retold releases.

The purpose of these events is to provide practice to the community until Age of Mythology: Retold releases.
The tournament will begin on August 14th, and players must complete 1 round per week at a time of the players' choice.
The winner finals, losers finals and grand finals must be live streamed.
Seeding is based on Meta Plays Ladder Points.
