This format sees teams play in their own lobbies against random players, as they try to rack up as many kills as they can within a certain time window. What should be a test between players of similar skill levels descends into a sub-game of ‘who can get the best lobbies with the easiest players in’, so that the tournament participants can improve their KDA (kill/death/assist) ratios.
