The tournaments consist of two fees to enter: #1 Tournament Entry Fee - This is paid to ggCircuit to enter the brackets and 100% of these fees create the national prize pool for that tournament #2 Venue Fee - This is paid to the local ggCircuit center for the use of their facility the day of the tournament. Many centers have options available for full station with all equipment or empty stations for teams to BYOC (Bring your own Console/Computer)
Registration will close at midnight two days before the event. The brackets will then be created and posted 24 hours before the matches begin. On game day, all teams may join the ggCircuit Discord channel for their game to help coordinate matching up teams for matches in the brackets.
The fun part is that we guarantee all entries at least three matches. If you are down on your luck and lose both of your first two matches in the double elimination bracket, you will be automatically entered for free into the famous Pink Pansy single elimination bracket with all other teams who lost their first two matches. This bracket will be a fight to the death for those teams to take the top prize and be able to call themselves true Pink Pansies! (Oh… and they also win back their tournament entry fee as another bonus!)
At the end of the main double elimination bracket the captains of the top teams winning prize money will receive the money via PayPal within 24 hours.
