All About Rosters
- Didn’t finish in the top 6 in the first tournament? Not a problem! Teams can change their team members as often as they want, until points are earned. Once you have points on the board, your teams are set in stone. Well, except. . .
- Teams who earn points are allotted one roster swap without consequences.
- After the free swap, there is an automatic 50% reduction to your points tally.
- If you want to know more, read our official Championship rules below.
- Signups are live!
- Signups will be open until 9:00am PDT on Monday, June 5th.
- Teams will be seeded by the rating they achieve as signups close.

- The last 8 teams will be broadcast live on Twitch on Saturday, June 10th starting at 11:00am PDT.

Want To Run Your Own Tournament?
We would love to see more of these! The more community involvement the better and there are some seriously solid reasons for doing it. Community-run tournaments directly impact which teams end up in the Arena World Championships, as all approved community-run events award points. If you’re interested, here’s what you should do: read the guide, fill out the application form and send in it to us. If you have any questions about running your own event, get in touch. We’re here to help and want you to create as many community events as it’s possible to have.
