Today we’ll be engaging in a contest of rockets. Entrants from the Shacknews community have entered in an attempt to prove themselves the mightiest of the bunch in Rocket League! The details of the upcoming tournament can be seen below.

  • Tournament is double-elimination 1v1 matches. Losing twice after seeding means elimination.
  • A series of team matches will determine seeding by overall points scored (not goals)
  • The highest two scorers (overall points, not goals) will earn first-round byes.
  • Tournament matches will be a single 1v1, 5-minute, standard rules match.
  • In losers vs winners final round, losers brackets champion will need to win two matches to win. Winners bracket will only need one win.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Stimulus Games without some kind of stimulus. That’s why there are a number of Amazon fun bucks on the line! They will be awarded to the top three places as follows.

  • 1st Place: $600 Amazon Space Bucks
  • 2nd Place: $300 Amazon Space Bucks
  • 3rd Place: $150 Amazon Space Bucks

At the end of the day, we know we can’t bring back the economy alone. We’re just here to have some fun and do some good. Our community has done right by us, so this is just another attempt for us to do right by you with this free tournament. Someday, the pandemic will come to an end, and when it does, we’ll be there to launch even greater competitions and events here at Shacknews. Until then, thank you for watching and participating in the Shacknews Stimulus Games 2020.
