Streamer Team Battle!
Whose rallying battle cry will you answer?
A horn sounds in the distance... a call to arms! This Thursday (9th January) at 19:00 UTC, some of the largest chess streamers around will be clashing head to head in a Team Battle on Lichess - and they need your support! But what is a Team Battle?
You may have already heard about the new feature on Lichess, but in case you haven't:
- It's an arena format event - complete with berserking and streaks
- You join the Battle under the banner of a specific Team
- You play against members of all the other Teams joining - but not against your fellows!
- The points of the top performing 20 players from each Team go towards the overall leader-board
This event will be 2 hours long, with a 3+0 time control, starting at 19:00 UTC on the 9th of January. Now for the most important question: whose call to arms will you answer? The participating streamers are below, be sure to join their Team - and then when joining the event, just select that Team.
