Bracket and Matchups
The bracket will be randomly generated at the start of the tournament. From there, players can open their match lobby on Players’ Lounge, friend their request opponent and play the match online.
- 5 minute quarters for majority bouts
- 6 minute quarters for semi-finals
- 7 minute quarters for finals
Players will select their teams using the random team feature twice and select one of two teams generated. If you get the same team twice, you may randomize one more time. If you don’t want both of the two teams generated, you may do a third randomization as a ‘suicide’ option to pick a team that you must use. Current NBA teams only.
Games will be played on Hall of Fame difficulty.
After each match, both players report the scores to the site; if discrepancies occur, players will need to provide photo or video evidence. Players’ Lounge will decide who wins based on the evidence provided.
tldr: Free entry tournament with cash prizes, sign up at Players Lounge HERE. The tournament will begin on 6/3/17 at 3:00 PM EDT.
