You have the inside track on LuX so the bet is sorta stacked in your favor

Well I made two seemly contradictory statements,

1. Yamon challenged a player (lux) he could easily beat

2. It isn't good to bet against lux if you know what kind of shape he will be in.

Under normal conditions yamon has a huge advantage because lux wakes up super early (5 am) and doesn't get on until late at night. He is fatigued mentally and physically from both working his day job and taking care of his kids. He might be stressed from projects and meetings and worrying about his kids or why his wife is pissed off at him. Yamon plays all day every day and isnt handicaped by any of those above things.

Lux would have the advantage when he doesn't have to work all day or worry about his kids and wife. He would have an even higher percentage if he takes the time to study yamon's replays. Douglas might in contact with sean so he knows what kind of shape lux is in mentally and how sharp his game will be on match day. Lux is more talented than yamon (equally swift at one point).

lol i'm probably more stressed and fatigued than lux ever is at all times.
 that's why i don't have a wife, children or a job. i don't know how people think these things happen. just shows how narrow-sighted you are.
everyone has problems, trials, tribulations, stress, triggers, and responsibilities. Like seriously did you blow in from stupid town? because almost everything you say is fucking retarded. And the best part about your overall stupidity, is you're an unapologetic kind of stupid. Just absolutely hopeless.

bo7? gow? koth style? make a rules  ........................

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 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 Mouse, Ingognito, etc 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.
