November 2011 North American Challenge

November 2011 Oceanic Challenge

Last week we announced and opened registration for the November 2011 Oceanic Challenge, a monthly tournament series allowing players to form small teams and compete for prizes, as well as being crowned tournament champion.

This week, we're excited to announce that registration is now open for the November 2011 North American Challenge, a tournament scheduled during the evening hours for time zones spanning most of North America.

If you’re ready to participate, you can do so by heading to the registration page. Sign in to your account and click the “Create your team” button if you’re looking to form your own team. If you just want to apply to join an existing team, simply head here and browse the list of available teams. Click the “Join Team” button and your application will be submitted to the team captain of that team.

If you'd like to discuss this particular tournament, Challenges in general, or want to chat with teams before applying, head over to the Challenge forums.
