Completed Bracket:

Below this line is archival information. Congratulations again to the winners!

S@20’s Proving Grounds Mini Tournament is our first dip into our own little nook of the competitive scene. As our first organized event, we are keeping things a bit small. This event will feature 5v5 teams battling it out in an All Draft All Mid ( ADAM ) style match. The tourney will be on a single-elimination bracket and each member of the winning team that makes it through to the end will receive $20RP - totaling a grand prize of $100 for the winning team.

Here is a short video explaining how things are going to go down and how you can get signed up!

Without further ado, here is the finalized bracket for the tourney!

Scheduling Update: Due to popular demand and some concerns from the teams, the S@20 Mini-Tournament will start an hour earlier. So instead of starting at 8pm PST, it will begin at 7pm PST. Hopefully this doesn’t conflict too much with anyone’s schedules, and I apologize for the change!

Below is schedule for the S@20 Mini-Tournament! Games are expected to run about half an hour each. On Saturday will be our preliminary matches, each team will have one game to conquer their opponent in order to make it to the Semi-Finals! The Quarter Semi-Final games will be held on Sunday, with the Final game taking place after the Semis.

The games will be streamed on our official channel and shoutcasted by Skillfactory from PentaCast! Co-casting with him will be a selection of people from the S@20 staff and shoutcaster pool!
We hope to see you there, if you have any questions feel to comment, hop into our in-game chat channel or email Nurse Flan at!

The Battleground
The Mini-Tourney will be held on the Murder Bridge (aka: Proving Grounds). The format of the matches is an All Draft All Mid. This means each team will receive the standard three champion bans then begin crafting their own, diabolical team composition. The event will be hosted on the NA server - this mean's players MUST PLAY ON AN NA ACCOUNT. The games will be spectated and streamed by at least one of our lovely S@20 staff members. The tournament games will also be shoutcasted!

A max of 16 teams are invited to apply for Surrender@20’s first ever All Draft All Mid Proving Grounds Tournament! You can apply with your own pre-made 5’s team, or you can use the commenting system on this post to find some teammates. There is also our in-game chat channel in the League of Legends game client to find teammates as well. Please only submit your team information if you have full five man team and are serious about the event.

Process and Details
The first 16 teams to have one member send in their Team Name, their full team roster with in-game names, and the primary roles of each team member when sign-ups begin will officially be signed up for the tournament. Please send this information to, and you will receive a confirmation email for a successful entry. Remember, sign-up emails sent before registration begins will not be considered and the team will have to apply again during the scheduled time frame.
On March 4th, another email will be sent to the 16 teams to double-confirm their sign-up and that all teammates will be available for the tournament on that weekend. Please reply to fully confirm your participation! Should one of the 16 teams drop out, the next team on the waiting list will be contacted to play.

After sign-ups have closed on March 5th, the competitive brackets will be released on Thursday, March 7th. We anticipate games to run about 30min, and we would greatly appreciate it if competing teams would be ready at least 30min before their scheduled match! A no-show 10min after time started = auto-win for the other team. We will also be disappointed in you.

Please keep your evenings on the weekend of March 9th and 10th free to participate in the games, or to spectate!
