Map List

Competitive Map Pool. Teams will Veto maps before each match.


Please register your team (with all 5 members) at the following Battlefy link if you intend on participating.

Assuming there are 24 teams, we will be promising everyone a minimum of 4 games. You can come to the tournament, lose every single match, and still play 4 games total (we will adjust the groups and structure if we don’t meet 24 teams).

On the evening of Friday, February 24th @ 8PM, we will have a live stream on our twitch channel (https://twitch.tv/madcitygg) to randomize the group seeding before the event. LIVE from from the LAN if you are there.

As mentioned, signing up with 5 players reserves your teams spot. I strongly suggest coordinating with all of your teammates and signing up on both LANREG and Battlefy together, so we can make sure we can seat you together.
