Hey everyone, as some of you know, we've been hosting weekly $1,000 Madden tournaments on our Twitch channel every Friday night. It has been a lot of fun to work on, but now I want to open it up to you guys in our core community. We're excited to announce the first ever Muthead Community Championship! Here's everything you need to know:
When: Saturday, 4/13 at 8 PM ET
Format: 32 player single-elimination on MUT Unlimited
You guys will be playing for the same prize pool the pros play for each week in Friday Night Football. The champion will receive $1,000 USD in addition to some other prizes. Here's a breakdown:
1st Place: $1,000 USD
1st - 4th: Muthead T-Shirt
1st - 32nd: 1 month subscription to playbook.gg
How to Participate
If you meet the requirements below, post in this thread and let us know you're interested and keep an eye on your PM inbox over the next several days. This is an invitational event, so just posting in this thread doesn't guarantee you a spot on the bracket. We will use a variety of factors in making selections including your activity level and standing in the Muthead community. The cut-off for sign-ups is end of day on Tuesday 4/9.
- 80+ Muthead OVR
- Muthead member for at least 90 days as of 4/13
- Can play on Xbox One and stream to Twitch (the Twitch Xbox app is fine)
- 18+ years of age
- US Resident
- Never have competed in Muthead League, Friday Night Football, or an MCS Live Event in the past 2 years
In the event you win, you will have to sign an affidavit of eligibility stating that you complied with the tournament rules and you played your games entirely on your own. Letting anyone play in this event for you is not allowed and signing a false affidavit certainly isn't in your best interest. The official rule set will be posted early next week. It will be very similar to what we use for Friday Night Football (found here).
If you have questions, let us know. I'll do my best to answer in this thread. Good luck!
Pretty sweet rocketz but why only xbox one?
All of our tournaments up to this point have been on XB1. Since the majority of pro players have both, that hasn't been an issue really. I know that it's not the same for you guys, but we have to start somewhere. If this goes well, this will be the first of many and we'll certainly be able to get PS4 involved.
Will the tournaments ever be opened up to UK, German and Canadian residents, just like the MCS events this year ?
It's possible, but not likely in the near future. For each country (and sometimes region of a country), we need a special rule set that complies with their laws/regulations. The MCS is working with a much bigger budget than we are. I'd love to open our events up to everyone regardless of where they live, that's just not realistic right now.
