Here is something to believe in!
Series 9 BSSC Official RoomtoursWe are back with a new format for the Series 9 edition of BSSC Live Events! Instead of having just two roomtours determine who advances to the 4-player playoff to earn CP, we will be having a total of eight. Players will earn points based on their finish in each roomtour they participate in, and the top four point-earners will be the ones who advance to the CP playoff. In order to encourage participation and full and competitive tours, there will be no Best Finish Limit for roomtours, so playing in every one that you can will be to your advantage!
