Please fill out this google form to register. The last day to register is March 13.

The minimum fee is $30 per team

Payment will occur via Venmo - further details will be given upon registration. If this doesn’t work for you, just email us at [email protected] - we can probably work something out.

The tournament will follow ACF gameplay rules and will be hosted on Discord. Server details will be sent the week of the tournament. Teams should be on the server by 8:45 AM ET for the opening meeting, and gameplay will start at 9:00 AM ET.

This tournament will follow the eligibility rules set by team writing the question set:
