Forewords and Thanks
This is a "TransparentTV" event, and is hosted on the Heroes Lounge website and discord, but not organised by Heroes Lounge.
The event is heavily inspired by the "X-cup" and I am thankful for all those involved in that cup, and the cups that have come before it. This ruleset has a lot of adaptations from other tournament rulesets, so thanks to CrossAlbeo and HeroesLounge for their work on their rulesets.
The name is merely meant as a bad joke.
