Demar "Dazerin" Williams is launching a brand-new North American Rocket League Tournament, sponsored by Psyonix. The event, dubbed "Wave Dash", is a Rocket League Content Creator's Tournament with a pretty hefty prize-pool. Let's take a look at the details of Dazerin's Wave Dash Rocket League Tournament, what is the Wave Dash Schedule, Prize Pool, and format.

Dazerin is a Rocket League Esports player, and a content creator involved not only in the FirstTouch Podcast, but in RLCS and CRL. He's also an Epic Partner with his very own Creator Code. You can find all those details on his Twitter account, if you want to check him out. Dazerin seeks to fill the void left by the currently-postponed RLCS 11 with his very own Tournament, and we have to be honest with you, it looks like it's going to be one hell of an event. Here's everything we know about Dazerin's Wave Dash Rocket League Tournament...

RLCS X is over, but Dazerin is bringing Rocket League Esports back with Wave Dash, a new tournament for Rocket League content creators. Other than this, what other Rocket League Esports is there to sink your teeth into?

What is the Wave Dash Rocket League Tournament Format?

Dazerin's Rocket League "Wave Dash" Tournament will feature an open qualifier, followed by a closed qualifier that will determine the eight teams who will advance to the main event. The main event itself will feature three different stages, with the last one being a major Playoff between the final four best teams. In total, out of 128 registered teams, only a single team will come out victorious. Unfortunately for all of us who are not North American, the event is only available to players who are residents of Canada or the United States of America. Here's a detailed breakdown of how the event will play out, taken from the Tournament's website.

How Much is the Wave Dash Rocket League Tournament Prize Pool?

Wave Dash has a $20,000 USD Prize Pool. It is a North-American event, so sorry people not living in NA, that prize pool is only available to them, and you ain't going to compete unless you're from the USA or Canada. It might be a shame, but who wants their filthy money anyway? They have $1 notes over there, and their money is freakin' paper, so it's not that much of a loss. I don't want that crap in my wallet. Totally. Yeah... totally not joking or anything...

How to Register for the Wave Dash Rocket League Tournament

To register for Dazerin's Wave Dash Rocket League Tournament, each player in your three-player-team must fill out the online form. To go over the criteria one last time: to successfully register for the Wave Dash Tournament, you will need a team of three players. The first player who registers needs to create a team and send invitations to his or her teammates. The other two players must register individually and accept the invitation. Keep in mind that the Open Qualifier caps at 128 teams, and that registration has been open since August 30. Thus, you better get in quick to get yourself registered. Seriously, stop eating that pizza, and go register... if you're a Yank, that is.
