Third time’s the charm

“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet”

We’ve had to change the format up a bit to accommodate the larger group size but trust me, it’s as wild as ever. Only one tournament produces moments like this so jump in and embrace the sweet touch of madness.
