When do games take place?

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.

Can I enter with friends?

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.

Won’t people smurf?

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.

What is this thing?

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.
