The Face-Off Challenge will be run once a month, the winner of the Novice Bracket will be promoted to the Pro Bracket for the next challenge and the clan that scores the least amount of rounds won in the Pro Bracket, relegated to the Novice Bracket, giving them a chance to work their way up the ladder.
