Starting in 2020, RU players will once again have a chance to prove that they're the best overall RU player by earning points when competing in a series of tournaments throughout the year. At the end of the year, there will be a seeded playoffs consisting of the top 16 players with the most overall points. The winner of the playoffs will be crowned the overall best RU player of the year and have the ribbon above added to their postbit. The ribbon will last for a year until it is greyed out and permanently affixed to your postbit.

As you may have noticed, we’re starting the circuit off with the RU classic this year. The reason being is that we expect the tier to be unstable during the first few months to run the risk of hosting a large scale tournament. We’ll be using the classic to buy some time while the tier properly settles. In addition, unlike the previous years the type A tournaments are not spread out like we would want them to be. Between the new gen and grand slam tour dates being set in stone, there’s too many variables that are out of our control this year for us to set the circuit the way we think would be best for the playerbase.
Tour dates may be subject to change, so be on the lookout in this thread where we will announce any new updates. Look forward to another exciting year of RU tournaments! Further information on the circuit including specific tour dates, other potential changes, and signups will be posted here in the near future.
