Hey everyone it's Champ from 2GG!
2GG is happy to bring you Breakthrough! An event with a focus on new and aspiring smashers.
For this event, we will be using round robin pools. Instead of the standard bracket pools where you are only guarantee 2 sets, round robin pools requires you to play EVERYONE in your pool before you are done. So, if there's 8 people in your pool then you get to play 7 other people regardless of your result.
Once round robin pools are done, the top 2 highest points will move on to a 128 man bracket. The remaining players will be eligible for another event which we will explain later.
Another thing to note here is that current and previously ranked SoCal players are not eligible for this event. Instead, they will be able to help out the new and aspiring players via coaching, matches, meet and greet plus more if they decide to do so.
Here's the list of smashers who are not eligible for this event: https://goo.gl/a2EJh5
**THIS EVENT IS NOT SOCAL ONLY! UNRANKED SMASHERS FROM OTHER REGIONS ARE WELCOME ALSO!**
I'm a ranked player from another region, can I register?
Short answer: Depends. Because we understand that each region skill level is different, a rank 1 in region A can be a rank 10 in region B or vice versa. That means we will have to gauge it on a person basis.
Due to this, IF YOU ARE RANK IN YOUR REGION THEN FILL OUT THIS FORM BEFORE YOU REGISTER:
The SoCal Panelists will look it over and if they decide that you qualify, I will notify you and you can then enter.
If we find out that you are ranked in your region and didn't notify us, then we will disqualify you immediately once the event starts.
