Pluto Cup

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 / Rank bracket seeded round-robin group stage, leading into a single elimination bracket for both winners and losers of each group!

Signup Information

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.

    The average SR of a duo must be below 3500SR (Overwatch) The average rank of a duo must be below Platinum 1 (VALORANT)

What's New?

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!

This month of July we will be incorporating the VALORANT portion of the event.

Schedule

The first day for each game 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, and how many teams will make it through from each group. Adjustments to the schedule will be announced in the Elo Hell Discord.
