Tournament come support!

Hello, I am hosting a battleborn ps4 streamer exclusive tournament this Saturday June 11th, starting at 3:00pm est. 6 streamer teams will battle each other for fun and glory! The streamers are, Bohan716, Frombhindtv, Skatastic, Fai_egoistt, Roccobrown, Bunzcrew.
Come support competitive tournament!!

here are the rules.

Picks and bans:
Team 1 – Ban 1
Team 2 – Ban 1
Team 1 – Pick 1
Team 2 – Pick 2
Team 1 – Pick 2
Team 2 – Pick 2
Team 1 – Pick 2
Team 2 – Pick 1

Best of 3 matches:
Both maps of each type:
Match 1: capture: team that wins coin toss choses of map
Match 1:
Match 2: meltdown: team that lost coin toss chooses map
Final match incursion:
Overgrowth only

Echelons frame rate is dumb and overgrowth is, in my opinion the official pvp map of Battleborn.

Unique characters on

Items will be allowed

2 item bans per team

Exploiting any part of the game will result in your forfeit. Example: sentinel reset switch can give you infinite shield when triggered in the right situation.

Galilea and Alani are both banned until they are balanced.

I’ll be watching. Sounds fun

What does that mean? I’m new to sporting terms.

Picks and bans means champion picks and champion bans.

Ban phase: Team one “bans” a character, meaning the other team cannot pick them, then team two bans one character.

Pick phase: Then team one picks one character, then team two picks two characters and team one picks two more characters and so on.

It may be a bit clearer if you just watch a vid with picks and bans from another MOBA:

This is the picks and bans phases from smite, they alternate banning and picking until both teams are drafted from available characters, and teams cannot have a duplicate of a character the other team has. There’s an additional ban phase during this that is not described in the tourney above. There’s a LOT of strategy going on during picks and bans.

The Devs have said they intend on implementing picks and bans into BB down the road BTW.

I know you already agreed on rules most likely, but I disagree with banning Galilea
and Alani while also allowing an additional ban, and more notably Galilea. With a draft, it’s very easy to counter them, and because of this I think it’s dumb to knock out 4 of the Battleborn. Just my opinion though

lol, I think it’s funny people would still consider Gal that OP… in a competitive environment Boldur is a muuuuch bigger problem than she is, especially since her nerfs.

What makes Galilea OP isn’t her health or damage its her utility. She has way too much in her kit.

And she’s likely to keep it.

I don’t see why you wouldn’t just add an extra ban-phase and leave her in, let the players determine who’s passed or banned. she’d probably get through more than you’d expect, I know I wouldn’t waste a ban or a first round pick on her… I’d rather have a handful of characters first, even in her role. She’s not likely to get another nerf any time soon.

And at a competitive level I’d prioritize Miko or Marquis waaaaaay higher than Galilea

Frombhindtv will no longer be joining us in the upcoming tournament. I will be making a team as a replacement. Add me on psn Karmolarmo with “tryout” in the message. Than you!

Sounds really interesting, shame I am a Xboxer

Have fun people

A couple teams dropped out last minute, so we will only be having skirmishes July 11th until I decide on what to do. Come watch us have some fun.
