Introduction

SM OU Global Championship is a standard SM OU Tournament with a goal to find the best SM OU player of the year.


Each round will consist of 2 stages. The first stage each player will be given 2 sets of pairings, in which they play a best-of-3 vs their opponent. After the first stage is completed and the host has determined wins, players who win both their matches go through to the next round, while players who lost twice are eliminated. The players who won 1, lost 1, battle it out in a tiebreaker FT2W in stage 2 to join the two-time winners in the next round (or the player wins the tournament in the case of a final). If a 3-way final, a 3-man FT2W round robin will determine the winner of the tournament (repeated if necessary).

The prize returns from last year: a $50 (or equivalent) amazon gift card will be given out to the winner!
The winner will also earn the right to display
in their signature.

Additionally, the winner of SM OU Global Championship will earn the right to compete in the year-end RoA Forum Championship, competing in the SM OU division for the
medal (to go in their signature).

You can also earn qualification points for the year-end SM OU Championship.
