Academy Gaming North American Weekly Tournament—5v5 Conquest

Academy Gaming’s North American Weekly Tournament features a way for both teams and individuals to get in on the action. Don’t have a team? That’s fine! In the Academy Gaming Weekly Tournament, solo players are able to sign up as free agents and will be paired with other individuals to battle against other free-agent teams. If you’re entering with a group of friends, test your mettle against other premade teams and see if you’re able to claim the winning prize. Academy Gaming restricts Pro League players from participating in this tournament, which creates a friendly environment for players who enjoy lighter competition.
