    ENDGAME CIRCUIT

    This tournament will be part of the 2015 EndGame Cicuit. The EndGame circuit is a series of 3 tournaments played from month to month. The Circuit acts as qualifiers to Splatoon's first league, the EndGame Splatoon Premier League (eSPL). The winner of each tournament will gain an invite to the premier league of Splatoon's top 8 teams, where they play in weekly, casted matches to determine the best teams around. More information regarding the 2015 EndGame Circiut and the eSPL can be found in this thread.

    EndGame has established itself in its first year as a major tournament provider in the competitive Mario Kart community. The Mario Kart World Cup, held for the second time in 2015, featured top players in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 and reached the front page of Twitch, becoming the most visible competitive MK tournament to date. Building on our past experience in online tournaments as well as new staff, EndGame is ready to branch out into the world of Inkopolis!


    Our goal is to bring a professionally organized tournament to the Splatoon scene and to promote its overall development.

    Hello everyone,

    In response to recent worldwide tragedies, we are lifting all registration fees. In their place, we ask teams to donate what they can, and that you all contribute towards our Doctors Without Borders fundraiser. We want to send all the love this Splatoon community has on over to those suffering in the world right now, and we hope you understand the change. You can read more about the change here: http://www.endgametv.net/news/2015/11/14/recent-worldwide-tragedies-and-how-we-may-help

    That said, the tournament won't change. We're bringing back high profile, hype-as-hell matches and we'll be broadcasting it this upcoming weekend. Get ready. We're coming.

    You are most likely including full stream links, rather than just twitch usernames. The website only wants Twitch Usernames. That goes for all trying to register.

    I just registered Wabi Sabi, but I'm at work so I have no access to my friends list so I'm not 100% sure on some of my teammates' NNIDs. May have to edit them later. I hope that's not too much of an issue!

    Hey guys, just a real quick reminder that tournament communication is taking place through the discord server linked in the OP. Please join and let me know what team you are a captain of. Thanks!
    I lost your guys' registration in the system. So if you wouldn't mind just resubmitting that later, that'd be great. Sorry about that.

    Keep in mind that we will have a client helping with the CS:GO setup.

    I totally misunderstood what the donations where going towards! I'll gladly support this event! I thought we were donating to the prize pool! I'm glad to hear that this is a charity tournament.

    Keep the registrations coming! Less than 24 hours left in registration and there's not too many spots left!

    Also, we've reached $105 before we've even started. Thank you so much to everyone that's donated. Less than $900 until we reach our goal!

    Additional graphic if needed;

    Additionally, we have a custom application ready to use for CS-GO styled rules, offered in both English and Japanese.

    Just a reminder that all teams need to be in the discord server. If you are in the discord server and your name is pink on the spreadsheet, please let me know (only exception: I already got Diamond Dogs). Thanks!

    Hope everyone has fun today!

    Nice to see a second one happening.

    I might just be blind but I don't see a link to the groups / bracket.

    Edit: Never mind, it's on the webpage.
