Gamestah has announced an ODC (One Day Competition) for HotS, to take place on 29 July 2017 – that’s this Saturday! Here’s all the information you need about the ODC.
1. It’s open to all
Anyone can enter – this is a competitive day for anyone that wants to play. You don’t have to be a pro team, or an amateur team, or even a regular team: you could just grab five friends and enter for a day of competitive HotS!
2. It’s not compulsory
This isn’t a qualifier for another competition, nor does it have any points allocations towards a wider league. It’s a one-off event that starts at 12pm AEST and ends when it ends!
Since this is a casual event we have some prizes to give away (but no cash). Each player on the team that wins the Grand Final will receive a code for 12x Loot Chests. We’re also going to be nominating MVPs throughout the day, and at the end of the day we’ll be giving two MVPs (drawn randomly from all the MVP nominations) a Suns out Guns out loot chest code. For our viewers we’ll have a number of Hero Bundle codes to give away, including 2x Stukov codes!
As usual, the tournament bracket will be run by Challonge, one of Gamestah’s core sponsors! Register here, or click the image below!
The tournament format is double elimination, with Upper Bracket Matches best-of-three (BO3) and Lower Bracket Matches best-of-one (BO1). The Grand Final will be best-of-five (BO5) with the team in the Upper Bracket starting with a 1-0 lead.
6. Streaming Allowed
As with all of Gamestah’s Tournaments, matches will be streamed live on twitch.tv/gamestahtv1. We’re going to be doing something different for this tournament, though. If your match is not being streamed on the official tournament stream, and you’d like to stream it yourself (i.e. player POV streaming), just let us know. We’ll provide you with a Gamestah Logo to put on your overlays in exchange for your stream link. As long as you’ve given us the link, and you’ve put our logo on screen, you will be allowed to stream your match (with an appropriate delay, of course!). We’ll even promote your stream link on our social media, and the official GTV1 broadcast!
Note that you will not be allowed to stream your match if it is being streamed on GamestahTV1.
