On October 8, 2017 the Nexus Gaming Series (NGS) announced that they were running a holiday tournament. Billed as the 'Krampus Krucible' this tournament will take place in the weeks between December 4-18 of this year.
In this unusual tournament structure, every person signs up individually and they are assigned to teams. The brackets are best of three knock-out games. The tournament may be single or double elimination depending on the number of teams.
Each set will follow the same structure:
Map 1: Towers of Doom
Map 2: Infernal Shrines
Map 3 (if needed): Braxis Holdout
The teams are selected in a reverse draft (i.e. your opponent picks your team composition).
This looks like it will an exciting tournament and I for one can't wait to see what types of shenanigans can be pulled off in this format.
