I don't know if the team is already because it is a common issue but I didn't see it on the in progress list. The issue is, sometimes when 2 players need to face each other for a tournament, so one player challenges the other one but as he sends the challenge, the other player is also picking a team and sending a challenge. Then, both players get a challenge and both accept, which leads to this situation :
I don't remember it happening before, so my suggestion is : if someone already challenged you, you cannot challenge this same person back until you answered to his challenge. It is a really important issue as sometimes tournament players end up using two different teams against a player who has brought the same team twice, which can lead to the player with two teams picking the most favorable matchup or having revealed a team he wanted to keep hidden for later. Wether this is already in fixing phase or I am the first to bring it up I hope it gets fixed before SSD and OLT playoffs.
 
Alternatively: if you attempt to challenge a player in some format, the process of doing so should cause the server to first check if your desired opponent has a pending challenge against you in that same format, and if so, it should take the opportunity to play "matchmaker" and reinterpret your challenge request as a response to their challenge. No need to say "you have to cancel this request, then go back and, in a separate step, reselect the team so you can answer theirs".

This part is done (available after the next restart), but we might also change the UI to separate incoming and outgoing challenges such that a player would also be able to issuing a challenge if one comes in from their intended opponent at the same time.
