The Trio Cash Cup is a cross-platform tournament, split in two. Those that have reached Contender rank in Arena mode are eligible for one event and those that have reached Champion's league are eligible for another. This gives a broad range of players the chance to compete for prizes.
The Trio Cash Cup will run every Wednesday from 15th July to 12th August meaning there will be five separate tournaments to take part in. Both the contender and champion-only events will take place on these dates and at the same time.
Start times vary from region to region, for the most up to date information check the tournament tab in-game.
The Cash Cup is a trio tournament, so find two mates and get ready to compete against your regions best players.
Each session will last approximately three hours. Players can play as many as 10 matches. Players will earn points based on the scoring system listed below.
Players will be ranked on a leaderboard with the highest performing trio in the region eligible for cash prizes. High performing teams in the Contender Cash Cups will gain eligibility for one week of the Champions event.
