Introducing The Weekly Bash (featuring the Mini League)

The Weekly Bash is BlueBird Rivals’ refreshed weekly tournament series, designed to provide a highly competitive experience for those wishing to push through the bubble scene and test their skills to their limits. A part of 'The Weekly Bash' is the 'Mini League', a structured, short league for the top 6 to fight for their share in the $250 AUD prize pool. Each season will operate in a 5 week cycle, to provide that consistent and refreshing experience.
