This new shape MFAM Gauntlet will change from a monthly event to a four-week event format. This will feature qualifiers and a main event each week, starting on Monday July 13th. The main event will take place on Wednesday 15th at 4PM EST.
The qualifiers and main event will be broadcast on the MFAMGauntlet Twitch channel with a new pre show called “The Armory” being added to the event.
As part of this partnership, Nick will ask for donations to the Call of Duty Endowment Fund during the MFAM Gauntlet livestreams. The June main event reached a peak of 301,881 viewers, so it is understandable why Activision Blizzard have chosen to partner with Nickmercs to further promote the tournament.
