Sendou's Vanishing Crutches


You can win. But can you give up on your crutches and still remain on that path? 

At the start of each set every weapon is legal. After every map the losing team can choose to ban any weapon that either team played for the remainder of that set. 


These tournaments are meant to be fun so treat everyone with respect!  Inappropriate team names or player names aren't allowed. If you experience bad conduct, please reach out to the Tournament Organizers and let us know what's happened. Inappropriate behavior may result in bans and disqualifications of teams.  If you have any questions or need any help, reach out on our Discord.



All teams that want to play must check-in. Check-in opens 60 minutes before the tournament starts and closes 10 minutes before to allow some time for TO's to organize the bracket and change the seeding if needed. Last time to sign up is 15 minutes before the tournament starts. There is no exceptions made for latecomers.


One player may only play for one team for the entire tournament. Submitting roster beforehand is not mandatory but doing so is recommended for pick-ups. You can do it either with a DM to me or a post to #helpdesk.


Player that has a stable wired connection that is located relatively close to everyone playing (so for example the only American player shouldn't host if the other 7 are European) should volunteer to host. If no volunteer can be found the higher seed decides one between their players to host.

Map/Mode selection 

Map/Mode list will be announced by the TO's in our Discord server.

Winning Condition

Best of 3 for every round before Top 4. Best of 5 for semi-finals, bronze match & Underground Bracket grand finals. Best of 7 for grand finals of the actual bracket.

Underground Bracket

Teams that are eliminated early on are immediately entered into our Underground Bracket. If a team does not want to play in this, they should let tournament organizers know on an early loss. The Underground Bracket can be found here.


Time limits

You have a total of 35 minutes to finish a set of Bo3 and 50 minutes to finish a set of Bo5. This time is from the result posted on #match-results that lets you know the opponent you are facing till you post the result of the match in question to the said channel. There will be an extra 5 minute grace period at the start of the tournament.

Hearing back from your opponent shouldn't take longer than 6 minutes. For everyone to join the room after it has been created and the opponent that you are talking to has been notified shouldn't take longer than 7 minutes. Subbing shouldn't take longer than 1 minute. 

If your opponent is holding up the set let us know on #helpdesk or both teams might be punished for holding up the tournament. Please communicate any delays with us so we can run the tournament smoothly!


Every team is allowed two (2) replays due to a DC during the tournament. DC is not granted if:

  1. The opponent's (the team that does not have a DC) score has passed 50
  2. Over 2 minutes 30 seconds have passed in the game clock
  3. The team with the DC doesn't stop playing immediately after the DC happening.

If host DC's while the game is in progress the team that wasn't hosting takes the win for that map. If host DC's before game starts (players can move) room should be remade but with a different host.


If a player you are facing is having connection problems to a level where it's greatly interfering with the game you can DM me after the tournament is done with video proof and we will consider taking action against this player for our future events. Notice that latency (that is caused by players living around the world) is not considered lag in this rule.(edited)


Feel free to reach out to us on our Discord, or to ping any of the TOs (Sendou, Earth22, TheJuFox, Alicia, Walky).
