SCREWBALL!! What the hell is that you might ask? Well people at the RA thought they weren’t going to have a tournament, they said so in captains meeting. Apparently they were still told they are going to try to get this together so a bunch of people sat down to discuss who the hell NOT to get enough teams to have to host this thing and this is what they came up with!
(This is the writer’s opinion and in no way represents the sentiments of the SBW empire, it’s owner or it’s employees [captains and players])
That being said check the rules bellow carefully cause it’s actually screwed in the head! And for that reason it sounds like fun and so we are in!
