Overview

Monday Madness is one of the weekly events presented by the Amateur Esports Organization. In this event Overwatch solo players sign up every week and compete in random teams for victory and glory.

Not everyone who wants to play in tournaments is already part of a team. This event is the perfect time to experience organised play and to get a feel how tournaments play out. This doesn’t mean you can’t sign up if you’re already on a team.

We will group all solo players into teams of six and together you will compete against other teams that also consist of six random players. The tournament format will be different depending on the amount of sign ups and will last between two and four hours.
