Introducing the Clash of Rivals: Battle of the Bands
A couple of months ago, we launched our first-ever team-based, single elimination Tournament that let you join a squad and take on your rivals in real time. You've absolutely loved our first few Clash of Rivals events, so this month, we're back for more... and this competition may just be the fiercest one yet. Get ready for the Clash of Rivals: Battle of the Bands!
For a quick overview of the event & introduction to your Team Captains, check out this video from Duff & Hyp Andrew! For more in-depth details, keep scrolling and read below.
In the popular Clash of Rivals events, we're settling some of the world's greatest debates, one issue at a time. This time, we asked which bands YOU wanted to see represented, and you all answered. The 8 chosen teams are truly epic—combined, they have over 1.5 BILLION albums sold. We all have a list of our favorite bands, but this time, you only get to pick one. You get just one ticket to just one show... who are you going to see during this week's Battle of the Bands?
Here's how it's going to work:
On Tuesday, September 26, you'll be able to join one of eight teams: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Rush, Nirvana, or Pearl Jam. You'll be able to join the team of your choice using a promo code. Choose your team wisely—the team you choose on Tuesday is the team you're locked into for the entire competition! All 8 promo codes will be announced on Tuesday, September 26 at 1 PM ET.
Once you choose your team and enter their corresponding promo code, a special Tournament will be unlocked where you will compete against other players who chose the same team. In that Tournament, you'll compete for individual rewards amongst your own teammates, with the top players in each division bringing in the top prizes.
At the same time, the other teams will be playing their own Tournaments, too.
In each of the tournament's 3 rounds, your team will be matched against one opposing team; only one team from each matchup will advance to the next round. After Round 1, the aggregate score of your Top 10 scorers in each division—Rookie, Veteran, Pro, and Tour Pro—will be matched up against the aggregate top scores from the opposing team. The team with the better aggregate score will advance to the next round of the single-elimination Battle of the Bands bracket.
This means that, while Golf Bags are awarded for individual performance within your own team, advancement (and a chance to win even more rewards, including rare and exclusive prizes for the champion team) is based on your whole squad's performance.
The same structure and balance of individual & team competition will apply in the semi-final round on Wednesday, September 27, and the final round on Thursday, September 28. The last team standing will be crowned the Battle of the Bands champions after the Finals conclude on Friday!
Although Golf Bags will be based on your individual performance, there will be very special rewards in store for everyone on the final winning team, so don't overlook the value of joining a team where the competition is fierce!
