“Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.” – Picasso
We’re returning with another major weekend event in March, Elimination Draft, this $1,000 tournament is a continuation from our Escape Gaming Masters series where we will see the return of the “Legends” and the “Gatekeepers” from the last 1v1 event. As the tournament progresses less and less civilizations will be available in a players’ civilization pool, this means we’ll see some weird but entertaining match-ups! The format is seeing a major change for this event, for full settings & rules click on the link below!

“Qualification is on 17th March, the format will be Single Elimination, Best of 1. The number of qualification spots will be announced along with a bracket closer to the event (but before sign-ups close).
The main tournament is a Swiss format with 3 rounds, this means that each player will play a total of 6 games in three Best of 2 matches. There will be a fixed total of 24 games in the main event.”
We are waiting for all Legends and Gatekeepers to confirm their participation, there will be more open qualification spots if any players decide to drop out.
