North America Regions Tournament Has Begun

Ever wondered which North American region is the best? Have you had spirited discussions with friends about how West Coast is best coast or East Coast is beast coast?  Well, we’re here to settle it once and for all with the NA Regions tournament! We’re running this as both a fun tournament that a lot of people have looked forward to for a while, along with having a good test run for a potential World Cup format in the future.


  • 7 vs 7, three round-robin matches with a championship week at the end (battles for 1st and 3rd place) (four weeks in all)
  • Every player in the tournament must play at least once
  • Matches can be played on cart or on Showdown, but preferably on cart
  • All battle videos and replays must be saved. Players are highly encouraged to stream their matches.
  • Best-of-three sets

Teams are picked by the captains from each region. There are no open tryouts; players were hand-picked for each team by the captains.
