Hello! Welcome to the hub for the NU tier's tournament circuit. The 2019 circuit will be based around four major NU Tournaments throughout the year. Participants will have to go far in these tournaments in order to gain substantial points and climb the leaderboard. At the end of the year, the top 16 players on the leader board will fight in a best of three single elimination USUM NU playoffs bracket to determine the winner. For a second year in a row, the winner of this circuit will be awarded with the lower tier circuit ribbon that will appear on the winner's post bit to commemorate their victory, the ribbon gets greyed out after a year and remains on your post bit.

  • This year we'll be introducing a new tournament into the NU Circuit for the first time. The NeverUsed Majors. Similar to the UU equivalent, the NU Majors is a pools based tournament which is divided into two stages - a round-robin qualifier and an elimination bracket.

NU Classic is returning to the NU Circuit in 2019!

What is a "Type B" Tournament?
A "Type B" tournament is given less weighting on the NU Circuit Leaderboard through the amount of points it provides. The points system for this tournament is the same as the points system being used for our major tournaments, the only difference is that it's weighting is 50% less than that of a major. For example, while the winner of an NU League cycle would be awarded with 500 circuit points, the winner of NU Classic would be awarded 250 points.
