During group stages, teams can freely schedule their matches with other teams in their group. You need to play three Best of Three games in two weeks.
Knockout stages are scheduled for 18.00 UTC / EST for Friday, 16.00 UTC/EST for Saturday and Sunday.
No, even if you have any. The tournament is for solo entrants only, though you can of course all sign up independently. Teams will be formed randomly, taking SR and preferred positions into account to create balanced teams.
We hope not. There is deliberately no prize pool to discourage smurfing. Additionally, requiring a minimum rank of 50 and taking season high into consideration means people have to invest time and money to participate on a smurf. The whole tournament being for solo entrants means there is also no point in trying to help lower ranked friends out. We are also always checking players to see if someone exhibits suspicious behaviour.
Sure! You can try your hand at casting (no previous experience required) or coaching (at least Diamond rank). Hop into our Discord and introduce yourself!
For signup, 2500 SR is a hard cap. We can talk about it if you are below level 50, please join our Discord and join the #verification channel.
You need to be at least level (the levels that give you lootboxes) 50 and be no higher than 2500 SR (season 4 high)
Group stages run from the 13th till the 26th of May. Knockout stages are 26th-28th of May.
At this time, the Scrub Cup is only on PC and in the Americas and Europe. We might be able to expand to more platforms and regions in the future.
The Scrub Cup is a tournament for Overwatch players with rank gold or below (2500 SR or lower). It’s a great opportunity to play the game competitively and have fun while learning and improving.
