Pluto Cup is the spiritual successor to the Peasant Cup! We will be running this event monthly for EHE supporters. (This includes Youtube, Patreon, and Twitch) Pluto Cup is a two-stage Overwatch & VALORANT Tournament with a SR bracket seeded round-robin group stage, leading into a single elimination bracket for both winners and losers of each group!
Solo sign-ups must be a twitch subscriber, youtube member, or platinum ($5) level patreon member.
Duo sign-ups must have one individual who is a twitch sub, platinum patreon level, or youtube member.
- Note: the average SR of a duo must be below 3500SR
Team sign-ups must have at least 3 members who are twitch subscribers, youtube members, or patreon platinum members. They may also be eligible if at least one member is a master level patreon supporter ($15)
Different from Peasant Cup, in Pluto Cup you can now sign up with a friend as a duo signup in addition to our solo signups. All of these players are grouped together to form as many balanced teams as possible, and play head to head for the title of CHAMPION in our discord servers!
The first day is a round robin style group stage, where groups of 4 duke it out to see who will move on the next day to each playoff bracket. Depending on the number of teams formed determines how many playoff games will be played. If there are less than 32 teams, the top 2 from each group will move on to the upper bracket, and the bottom 2 will move on to the lower bracket. Any more than 32 teams, and there will be an additional match on Saturday to narrow down the number of teams to 32.
