Prediction Competitions & Contests
There is a prediction contest live on the challonge page for the bracket (found here). People can predict which user accounts will progress through the bracket up until the 10th April. The 3 users with the highest score at the end of the tournament will earn a $25 Amazon Gift Card
There will also be a Guess the Player contest below T90Official's Stream where, during the course of the final day's stream viewers can guess which player is playing as which account. They will need to submit their guesses before the player reveal after the Grand Final on Sunday 14th April. The 3 users with the most correct guesses will earn a $25 Amazon Gift Card.
If you want the best chances at working out who the players are, make sure you check out the stream to see how the players play and who is winning!
Additionally, the player who's identity is guessed the least often will earn themselves $100. That means if they can successfully hide who their identity and deceive twitch chat, they can earn
themselves an additional prize.
