Winter Classic Tournament

The Battlesnake Winter Classic is back again! Qualifying developers will compete across three Divisions to earn a coveted Champion Prize Pack. The tournament will be broadcast live on Twitch on December 19th with the Battlesnake Casting Crew.

<span class="text-info">NEW!</span> Winter Classic Qualifier Arenas

This year we'll be running Winter Classic Qualifier Arenas throughout the Fall League. Every two weeks the top developers in each Division will qualify for the Winter Classic Tournament, after which the Qualifier arenas will be reset and restarted. This means all Battlesnake developers will have 4 chances to qualify for the Winter Classic Tournament. The Battlesnake Casting Crew will announce who qualifies during Snake Pit Live, on Nov 7, Nov 20, Dev 5, and Dec 18.
