What is the TAC Invitational tournament? And how is it different from the other tournaments in the series?
The TAC Invitational in a way is the tournament of champions. Teams who win their division in tournaments throughout the series will automatically receive an invitation and a spot in this tournament.
Is there any other way to be invited to the TAC Invitational tournament without winning the division?
Yes! In addition to winning your division and receiving an automatic spot, The Athletic Campus will be keeping a master standings table that will encompass points won and generated from each tournament. Based on the number of teams and spots available in the final tournament, teams may receive an invitation to the tournament based on the amount of points that they earn over the course of the tournaments they participate in
My team has won the division for one of your tournaments, will we receive another spot in the tournament if we were to win again?
We hope to have everyone back participating in multiple tournaments. You will only be able to receive one spot per team for the TAC Invitational. In the event one team wins multiple tournaments, that spot reserved in the TAC Invitational will be awarded as part of the final overall standings. Teams who participate and do not win the tournament, will still be eligible and have the opportunity to receive an invitation to the final tournament based on the number of points won.
My team has been invited to the TAC Invitational but we may be missing some players, can we roster substitutes?
No. All teams invited to the final tournament will be required to play with the team they won with in the series. All teams will be required to submit a written roster and all players are required to join their respective team online prior to the start of their tournament. All rosters are time stamped and freeze following the start of the tournament they participated in during the series. Any team found with ineligible athletes participating in the TAC Invitational will automatically forfeit their game. Each team and every game may be subject to roster checks at the discretion of the Director of Programming.
