Organized by Contest of Legends

Introduction

Greetings challenger. I am Koroua, and this is my gladitorial arena on the wonderful planet of Geron. Here, you will take part in a series of battles against other legendary champions, seeking the greatest of prizes. Do you have what it takes to become a legend? Come now, test your might!

Championship for the first Spring Series of tournaments. Day 2 will consist up of the top 50 players, best of three. The top 16 players from that will move onto Day 3. The two finalists from that will compete in the final round.

There will be no match timers that you need to check into on Limitless. Once you are assigned your opponent, a judge will DM you a VC channel to join. You and your opponent will check in with the judge who will keep track of the game clock. Due to this, rounds be will 60 minutes long to accomodate for this. This is to more efficiently mitigate the consequences of unforseen circumstances / technical errors.

The San Juan Mountains are beautiful!
