Elite ShowdownDec. 23, 2014, 12:12 a.m.
This will be a tournament to decide who is the number one player in the US. Beginning at round 1 of each regional series we are hosting a nationwide 1v1 tournament to crown who is the top player in the country. The cost to enter is $5 per person. Each match will be a best 3 of 5. Spots are very limited and are a first come first serve basis. The tournaments will be broken down into 4 regions of 32 players.
During round 1 of each regional the 32 players will be whittled down to 8 players.
Players and spectators will be able to see who has progressed on to the next round much like March madness after each tournament has passed. At Round 2 we will watch 8 players at their respective regions be whittled down to the final 2.
During the 3rd and final round of each regional series, we will pit the final 2 players in each region against each other to crown our regional champions.
At the year end Elite National Championship in Vegas the final four (one from each region)will battle it out to determine who takes home the cash, the number 1 headband, and who gets to be titled the Elite One.
