It’s easier than ever to start competing in this year’s Race to E3 tournament! All events use a new automated reporting system developed by smash.gg to seamlessly record in-game stats while playing and streaming. Register and then start up gameplay on your Mixer stream at any time during the three event windows to earn points. Only gameplay during your stream counts! You can stream as many times as you want in a given week – each streaming session acts as a new submission and is tallied and added as points on top of your existing score when the stream ends.

Do I need to play solo or can I play with a team?
Race to E3 tournament participants can play either solo or with a team. However, their results are counted from their individual in-game achievements. This means if a participant is playing in a team, only their individual score will count towards earning points. However, if the game you’re playing uses ranked wins, all wins will be counted regardless if you are playing in a team or not.
What are the disqualifications for Mixer Matchups
Disqualifications from Mixer Matchups – Race to E3 can result from the following infractions:
- Breaching the Mixer Terms of Service
- Impersonating another player
- Creating multiple accounts to participate
- Using abusive behavior or hate speech
- Using aimbots, hacks, alterations, modifications or otherwise providing an unfair advantage to yourself over the competition
If I enter after the event starts, do my livestream points count retroactively?
No. Players can register for an event at any time during the week. However, livestream points do not count until you’ve registered. For example, all events start on Mondays, so signing up on Wednesday does not count any streams on Monday or Tuesday.
