Tournaments

For Show Matches, most of the time two top players are invited to play a BoX series against each other. Some times they adopt a King of The Hill "winner stays on" format where, once the series is over, the winner is crowned king and will automatically participate in the next showmatch. These events usually feature well-known players and highly-anticipated matchups that might never come to pass in a regular tournament.
