Welcome to the Association of Stick Arena Professionals (ASAP)! This is the new go-to official hub for Stick Arena competitive tournaments. In ASAP, we aim to create an environment that prioritizes competition at the highest level, improvement of your game, and encouragement and welcoming of all players.

Why ASAP? ASAP gives competitive Stick Arena a real platform for establishing who the best Stick Arena players are. ASAP also employs a tournament tier system similar to the ATP for Tennis that encourages newer Stick Arena players who want to develop their skills. Additionally, ASAP has solid mechanisms that account for various factors, such as hacking and spurious identities, that have been issues in previous tournaments.

UPDATE! This weekend in ASAP was a HUGE blast. A recap:

SATURDAY: SINGLES MASTERS 500 #1

On Saturday we had a 16-player single elimination tournament. It was a hard-fought affair, running almost 3 hours with several intense battles that were instant classics.

At the end of the day, Avarice emerged as the champion, with Twisted the runner-up. Both players in the Finals faced formidable opponents along the way; in particular, Avarice triumphed over Sin, our 3rd place finisher, and Twisted edged out Jake, our 4th place finisher.

SUNDAY, DOUBLES CHALLENGER #1

Our Doubles Challenger tournament on Sunday had a 22-player turnout for an 11-team bracket. We tested out some newly made/rarely used Customs Maps, which were successes overall. I’d like to thank the members of our ASAP Map Team for their contribution: Koli and Scorp for map building, and Meteor for suggestions on good 2v2 maps.

Avarice and Sin emerged as the champions of the tournament, with Lizbona and Koli coming in 2nd. Jake and Meteor gave the champions a run for their money in the semifinals, but ultimately finished 3rd.

Overall, ASAP Tournaments have been a blast, with every single one of our 4 tournaments so far having a 16+ player attendance. I have our wonderful Stick Arena community to thank, and I think this is the start of something that is going to only get bigger!

Have any questions, such as how to join, what the current rankings are, or what the prizes are? Don’t forget to check out the links in the Opening Post of this thread!

More events coming next weekend, so stay tuned!

Welcome to the EU version of the ASAP tournaments hosted by the European Task force! These tournaments will consist of both 1v1 and 2v2 held in the {Europe} Amsterdam server and will be played at their own convenience, meaning that the participants will receive a 48 hour deadline per round in which they will have to organize and play a match with their opponents. This is enforced so the tournaments are finished within a week, and give room for the tournaments on the next one. Please sign-up at the designated channels, #1v1-signups, #2v2-signups. More information and all other info is in the ASAP, ETF discord and on this excel document: https://discord.gg/hF8K58S https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18Ltoh0ZVwe4kRnU3_QppxapI4AtPFLUq/edit#gid=722468723

After this weekend, we will also be having the April Open, which is a huge 2v2 tournament! Don’t miss it! Register in ASAP today and you can work towards continuing that free Lab Pass streak (or maybe getting some of those cool spinners you see people walking around in).
