Hello fellow PvPers! Things have been heating up lately in the Shadowlands warzones / forums, with lots of friendly jestering, name calling, ego padding and what not. This is good! It means everyone's getting more competitive, which could only be advantageous for the server's PvP community as a whole.
So why not have a 1v1 dueling tournament for the ultimate battle to you skills and ePeen?
This tournament is NOT a 1-day tournament, but will rather happen over a period of approximately 2-3 weeks after the roster is closed. This will provide more time for everyone to juggle playing vs. real life.
The format of the tournament is double elimination. If you are unsure as to what this means, please check out this link
