Rare & Twitch are hosting a Twitch:Rivals event for Sea of Thieves. These Twitch:Rivals events are events where affiliaties and partners can compete in streamer versus streamer games. The stream will be hosted on http://www.twitch.tv/twitchrivals but viewers can also watch the content creators they like.
The tournament will be held on July 23th in North America and July 24th in Europe. The Twitch:Rivals tournament will feature 80 players, 20 per event.
Price money & special bonuses
There are 4 events. During event 1 & 4 teams can earn $2000 for a first place, $1,200 for a second place. Teams finishing last earn $200.
During event 2 & 3 teams can earn $1,200 for a first place and $800 for a second place finishing.
The most interesting aspect of this tournament are the bonuses. The team digging up the most chests earns $600, the team collecting the most chests also earns $600. Sinking the most ships also earns you $600, while keeping your ship as safe as possible and not letting it get sunk also earns you $600. For the second and third event these bonuses are a little lower.
So.. teams are able to win up to $14,600 during the event. And even the worst teams will earn at least $1,200.
