The next cup will take on November 18th and will be a Duos tournament.

Teams of 2 will compete in the Marvel Knockout LTM format.

The format is a 8 team format, with each winning team advancing to the next round until a winner is declared.

Losing teams in a round will be sent back to the lobby to queue up again.

There is usually a 10 match limit, so players will want to advance as far as they can, and hopefully win, to maximise their points.
