The Administration team has deemed it acceptable to run the event as planned. See you there!

Greeting Dirty Bombers,

Heads up scrubs! The world isn’t wide enough for the two of us!

Make way for the underdogs in Proving Grounds #9! It’s time for them to duel it out to become the greatest team in the world.

But stand back you big dogs! You’ll get your chance to tackle this fresh meat some other time.

On the 3rd and 4th of December, we will be hosting a double elimination bo1 tournament.


That means that we’ll be prohibiting certain teams/competitors from participating. The following list is generated from DBN performance from performance in previous events:

  • fE
  • SoloQ
  • Run and Pack
  • t>
  • wimpy
  • LPS
  • d92
  • HERO
  • BROP
  • Ins
  • rbbts

It’s important that the players of these teams also realize that we’re not forgetting about you! With this separation we’re trying to give the newcomers room to move, play, and compete. But let’s not forget that your dedication to the game, drive to win, and passion are what drive the community, and your understanding of this ruling and this particular list is greatly appreciated.


Rules update:

  • 2.20 Teams signed up for Proving Grounds events are allowed to use one (1) player who has been banned from Proving Grounds events. This means that, for example, a single player from team “fake ELITE” can sign up for Proving Grounds with four other players that are not from a banned team.
  • 2.21 At the end of each Proving Grounds tournament, the winning team will be added to the excluded teams list. Players who played for more than 25% of maps for a given tournament will be added to a team’s exclusion roster for that tournament. If a team is excluded, all players from the team’s exclusion roster will be excluded from future Proving Ground tournaments.
  • 2.22 Any team caught actively playing with a banned merc during any event will result in immediate forfeiture of the current map.



The event will start at:

9am PST

12pm EST

5pm UTC

6pm CET
