RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR GLORY:
BARSTOOL SPORTS COLLEGE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT
Barstool’s inaugural Viceroy Warzone league and tournament. Games will take place in public lobbies, in 3 hour increments, once a week for 7-weeks before we crown the first-ever Barstool Sports College Gaming Champion.
HOW IT WORKS?
64 teams of 3. 7 weeks. One night a week, players will stream for 3 hours. At the end of the 3 hours, players will submit their stream and their points will be tallied. Scores will reset after each round.
The round of 64 will be one week. The round of 32 will be two weeks. After the round of 32, 16 teams will be cut and a bracket of 16 teams will be set. The seeding will be based on the team’s performance in the 2 weeks of the round of 32. The round of 32 will be a cumulative score over the 2 weeks.
Players can be substituted out each week as long as the new players/team meets requirements.
Every competing player must be submitted 12 hours before game starts each week
Winning Prize: The Barstool College Championship Belt and bragging rights as the #1 Warzone school in the country.
Players must be a current student at university/college
Combined team K/D no higher than 12.

Each Kill = 1 Point
