The purpose of the Site is to enable You to compete in Tournaments, Leagues and other competitive formats in skill-based competitive computer games, such as e.g. League of Legends. Users (and only Users) will be able to participate in Free and "Pay-to-enter" Competitions and win prizes such as Credits, points, merchandise or gaming products e.g. peripherals, skins and in-game items. Users in Pay-to-enter Tournaments can pay a pre-agreed sum of money (an entry fee), where the winner(s) of the Tournament wins the Prize pool, minus a commission to Challengermode where applicable.
Challengermode's Match and Tournament services (henceforth "Services") are categorized as "Games of Skill" and the outcome of any Match or Tournament played is solely the result of skill, not chance. You can either participate in Pay-to-enter Competitions, by using funds from Your User Account, or free Competitions with both monetary and non-monetary prizes. You may withdraw Credits to Your bank account or online Payment Provider. Presently, cash transfers are only available via the Payment Provider further described in Section 7.
