Hello Summoners, 

We hope you are as excited as we are for the Stache Classic this Saturday at 11 AM EST on Theta.tv!

The event will feature thirty-two Splinterlanders, each of which have battled through multiple rounds of qualifiers to reach the Grand Finals this weekend. 

Many of you likely tuned in for the qualifiers. If so, you will undoubtedly have an advantage in the Bracket Prediction Contest. The contest prize pool includes more than 30 Beta Packs and some epic prizes from NFT Horizon and us here at ZenSports to twenty-five winners. 

If you did not tune in for the qualifiers, don’t worry, we have you covered here!

So, who are the contestants? Which league did they qualify to represent? What chances do they have to win the tournament? Let’s find out!

Meet the Players & Event Rules


The Stache Classic will feature a unique and novel addition to Splinterlands Esports. The event will feature participants from all divisions: Diamond, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. 

When two contestants battle, they will do so at the lower skill division of the two. It does not matter which division the player is currently in, it matters which divisional qualifier the participant qualified for. 

It follows that the eight contestants who qualified via the Diamond League Qualifier will participate as diamond league players, and so forth. 

This ruleset ensures that participants from different ranked divisions and levels of power can all play in a fair format.
