The purpose of this master tag challenge thread is to give players who do not currently have a master tag the opportunity to challenge a player in order to receive one. For many weeks players like Yamon, Greenagenda, Equinox, etc. Have expressed interest in receiving master tag status.
As far as maps go, that is 100% up to the master tag holder who is being challenged. For instance if someone were challenge Swagier for his master tag, Swagier will be the one to set the terms of said challenge (i.e. maps, settings, time, and day)
Since it is his master tag status on the line
The only stipulation we are setting for these matches are for them to be played bo7 with notice and for them to be streamed by both players or from a watchers perspective in order to promote the game on social media.
I would also like to add a couple side notes,
While master tag holders are more than welcome to accept each and every challenge. We will not throw money at every single challenge. For arguments sake lets say Yamon loses to Lux in his challenge. He is more than welcome to come back to this thread and challenge another master tag holder. We will do our best to set up a proper match and time for both players should said master tag holder accept. However chances are we will not be interested in giving out prize money for multiple challenges by the same competitor in a short time frame. Furthermore should a lower tier player like challenge a master tag holder we also will not be interested in giving out prize money for a successful defense.
At the moment we do not have any system for preventing master tag holders from dodging challenges. However if it becomes apparent that a master tag holder for unreasonable reasons is purposefully dodging multiple challenges they may be liable to lose their master tag status.
