Entry into any tournament is almost always swamped with specifics, but this one keeps things fairly straightforward. The only major guidelines you need to follow fall under the categories of Age, Account Status, and Competition Rank. These are explained in the short list below. 

  • Age: Anyone wishing to participate must be at least 13 years of age. If you are under 18, you must have a parent's permission to participate.
