Participating with friends is encouraged, however, there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will be entered into the Challonge bracket and will be used to represent their team.  Voice channels will be created for each of the teams on our Discord server.

RegistrationVisit http://vvv-gaming.com/rocket-league/register on the day of the tournament to register.  While signing up you will be able to volunteer to be a captain.  If there are more volunteer captains than the total number of teams, the captains will be picked at random from the pool of volunteers.  If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players.

Participating as an individual: After filling out the signup form you will be in a free-agent pool. To ensure your participation in the event, you should be seeking out other free agents to form a team.  Another alternative is to seek a team that only has two players and join their team for the evening. If you do not have a team by the end of check-in period, you may not be able to participate.  If this is the case, contact an admin and seek help with finding a team, please only seek help after attempting to form a team on your own.
 
Participating as a team: After filling out the signup form above, your team is all set. All you need to do is show up in the discord server during the check-in time.  If you are seeking a third player for the evening, you can view the list of free agent players signed up at http://vvv-gaming.com/rocket-league/register and contact them to be part of your team for the evening. If you are unable to acquire a third team member on you own, then please show up on the Discord server at least 30 minutes prior to the event starting and seek help from a Supersonic Staff Member.

Reminder:  Solo participants do not earn points towards the season finale tournament.  We strongly suggest putting a team together to sign up with!  Feel free to use our discord chat to find teammates.
