Announcing #WarOfTheGods Season 2 + The Runback Continues!
Thank you to everybody who followed us throughout all of the first season for War of the Gods! We are happy to announce that we finally have the information you’ve waited patiently to learn…specifically, the details on Season 2, which is brought to you by StreamMe and powered by GauntletGG!
For the most part, War Season 2, which is an online competitive series featuring Injustice 2, will run the same course that Season 1 did. Only participants from North America (Canada and the U.S.A., to be exact) will be eligible to participate in our series. No age limit will be in effect, but should any players under the age of sixteen break into the Top 4 of any weekly bracket, parental assistance will be required before they receive cash prizes. All brackets will be hosted online via the Playstation 4.
Every week, players will compete to earn league points and/or cash prizes. Points will be awarded to the Top 32 whereas the cash goes only to the Top 4. At the end of the season, the top eight players will qualify for the season finale in March 25th. Like with Season 1, up to $10,000 will be at stake in the finale, to be paid out across all eight competitors!
For a complete overview of the rules, please see gauntlet.gg/war.
This is where we depart familiar territory and enter into the unknown. The first season ran for ten consecutive weeks, but for Season 2, we are expanding into a twelve-week circuit for War of the Gods. We are also adopting a new schedule for the weekly brackets: preliminaries will take place on Sundays at 6 P.M. Eastern Time, while Top 8 finals will be played out every Wednesday evening at 8 P.M.!
Also, by popular demand, we have implemented a new restriction regarding matchmaking. Any and all players who enter War of the Gods cannot utilize a Wi-Fi connection to participate. Only wired connections are permitted for tournament play. We have also shortened the DQ timer for all matches to ten minutes, meaning that players who do not show up within that time limit will either be sent to Loser’s Bracket or eliminated from the tournament.
Below is the official tournament schedule for War of the Gods Season 2. Please be advised that this schedule is subject to changes at the discretion of the event team.

Wait! Before you jump to the registration page, we have another surprise for you!
Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to Kombat Cup: The Runback, we have decided to expand it into a monthly series which will coincide with War of the Gods Season 2! Starting in December and ending in March, we will host a Mortal Kombat XL bracket on any and all weeks that War is not taking place. It will follow the same format as War: preliminaries will occur on Sundays with finals following every Wednesday.
No league points will be up for grabs in the Runback, but like with the original bracket in October, we are offering $1,000 in cash prizes to all players who break into the Top 8! See below for the payout scale that the Runback will follow, in addition to an official schedule.
Payout Scale for The Runback
1st Place – $300
2nd Place – $200
3rd Place – $125
4th Place – $100
5th Place – $75
