Bagogames, TSR, and SIGAD will all host a PC BBTAG Tournament come January 26, 2020. The tournament will be online for the North America region. The tournament will provide Steam players with a Swiss Bracket to ensure players get a fair amount of play.
If you’re not familiar with the Swiss Bracket structure; A Swiss Style tournament allows all participants to play in each round of a tournament. Wins and losses are tallied to see which players can go to the next round. This way, participants are allowed to play a fair bit before “Drowning in pools”.
However, if it comes to that, the tournament will also provide an Amateur Side tournament for players who didn’t make it to Top 8! So, you’ll be able to continue your participation and even win a prize if you win the Amateur Tournament!
1. Code for Shovel Knight Treasure Trove (MSRP: $35.19 (GOG)) (1st Place)
2. Code for God Eater 2: RAGE BURST [MSRP: $49.99 (Steam)] (2nd Place)
