Registration has ended


Cheeseadelphia X will take place from July 27th to July 28th at Localhost Arena in Denver, CO. Registration is open now open, so get signed up today. Much has changed from previous Cheeseadelphias, starting with WCS Challenger seeds.

WCS Challenger

Cheeseadelphia X will award two North American WCS Challenger seeds to the top performing eligible players* at the event. For the first time in WCS history, players will have the chance to prove their mettle and claim their Challenger seed in a fully open LAN environment.

Cheeseadelphia is open to all players, but only players eligible for North American Challenger League can claim the WCS Challenger seeds. If the top- performing players are ineligible, or are already qualified, the Challenger seeds will cascade downward to the highest- performing eligible player. Players from the European, ANZ, Taiwan, Latin America, and Chinese regions cannot earn Challenger seeds for their regions at Cheeseadelphia X.

New Format

Cheeseadelphia X will be using an open bracket format that differs from previous Cheeseadelphia events. The group stage will feature 64 players divided into four player double elimination groups, and from there players will seed directly into a double elimination bracket. The entire upper bracket will play out on the first day, July 27th, to determine our first finalist and fill out a brutal knockout phase.

On day two, the tournament follows the lower bracket players as they work through a brutal gauntlet, facing a fresh player every time they advance in the bracket.


Cheeseadelphia X features a $10,000 prize pool distributed to the top 12 players as shown:

1st: $3,500
2nd: $1,700
3rd: $1,200
4th: $800
5th - 6th: $600
7th - 8th: $400
9th - 12th: $200
