Instacup - Instagib Duel Tournament

It's almost time for another round of Instacup - the premiere instagib dueling tournament.

The previous tournament was such a success, that we've decided on turning Instacup into a quarterly tournament, hopefully providing some life to the instagib duel scene.

Whether you consider yourself a duelist or not, there’s still a spot for you in his tournament. 

Having fun is the ultimate goal - don’t think it’s not worth joining if you don’t expect to win.

As there will likely be others at your skill level, you should have enjoyable experiences, and great matches by participating in the tournament.


There will be a few changes to the structure of the tournament, due to feedback we received from the last one, and general issues we encountered.

There are now 2 phases to the tournament. A loosely scheduled round robin phase, where players will be split into groups, where they need to fight each of their opponents.

Players who win their respective groups will proceed into a 6 player eliminiation phase.

The matches will now be Best of 3, as having only one match per opponent last time wasn't overly popular.

The grand final and 3rd place matches will be best of 5.

    Phase 1:

    Loosely scheduled round robin with separated groups.

    Phase 2:

    The top 6 players are entered into an elimiation bracket to determine the overall winner.


Friday 19th of January. 20:00 CET

We expect phase 1 of the tournament to take, at most, 2 weeks. This should give the groups more than enough time to face eachother.

This is all subject to change as we start the tournament, and have a better idea of how many participants there are.

Due to the number of players who signed up for the previous tournament, and didn't show up, we expect players to check in a day early by letting us know that they'll 100% be attending their matches.

Players who don't turn up for the tournament, without notifying us, will be removed so that we're able to reorganise and seed the matches without delay.

Once again we'll be managing the tournament through Challonge, as it does a great job.

Grab them from for practice.


We'll be opening up donations for the prize pool. Mirio will be handling the donations. Contact him via Forums, IRC or Discord to donate to the pool.

I'll start it off with £20.

The prize will be split between the winners, the exact amounts/ratios still to be decided. This thread will be updated closer to the tournament.


This time around, I fortunately will have actual broadband, so I'll be able to stream matches to Twitch, or upload demos to YouTube as the tournament progresses.
