The Best Zed NA Tournament is a competition run by Esportspedia and streamed on Azubu.

Overview

“The unseen blade is the deadliest.”

It’s a simple question that was pondered when we did Best Riven NA. It was answered when Megazero defeated all his opponents to claim the title of Best Riven NA.

Now we want to know: Who is the best Zed in North America? The Best Zed NA Tournament hopes to find out by pitting 32 high-level players against each other in a dance of shadows. We’re expecting jukes, ninja moves, more jukes, and lots of action, so don’t blink: Esportspedia will be bringing you all the action exclusively on Azubu!

Charity

  • Best Zed North America will not feature any monetary prizing. It is a charity event.
  • Donations will be open throughout the tournament to three different charities.
  • Azubu will match percentages of the total donation pool (across all charities) to the first, second, and third-place players' charities of choice.
    • 30% of the total pool to the winner's chosen charity (in addition to donations from viewers).
    • 20% of the total pool to the runner-up's chosen charity (in addition to donations from viewers).
    • 10% of the total pool to the third-place player's chosen charity (in addition to donations from viewers).
    • This means that 160% of the total donation pool from viewers will be donated: 100% from the donation pool and 60% total matched by Azubu.
  • Each player may choose between either of these two charities, The Humane Society of the United States or Extra Life.

Format

  • Single Elimination - Once your Zed is dead, you remain in the shadows.
  • 32 participants.
  • Best-of-3 matches until the finals. Finals are best-of-5. Bracket available here.
  • All players must play ZedSquare.png Zed but can use any skin.
  • Matches will be played in mid lane on Summoners Rift (see Boundaries).
