October 31st the Tournament of Champions kicks off!
Eight of the best racers ever to pilot a Cygnus Pizza ship will compete in brutal head-to-head races to find the ultimate champion!
Starting October 18th, you get to vote for the tracks they will race on, and you can use your patreon votes to shake up the brackets… and then October 31st the race is on. Only one racer will take home the Tourney Champion Hat, only one racer will get the paid voice role in Smugglers of Cygnus, and only one racer will win physical Deluxe Edition of Smugglers of Cygnus!
The race for the best of the best kicks off as each race is done as a live best of 5 head to head racing series.
The racers will be setting up a time that’s good for them to do the live head-to-head over the month of November, with the finals being the end of December.
Stay tuned for race dates!

EpicSyringe said it best in his bio:
“I’m a variety streamer with an emphasis on bodying bosses. And this month, I’ll be bodying the bosses of CPR. I heard they were tough, but I’m epicness incarnate. And nothing gets the better of me. You best be prepared Cyprus, the absolute legend has arrived!” He most certainly delivered last month, when he beat the leaderboard topping @FadedKamui in the nail-biting final! Now he’s a force to be reckoned in the final Tournament.
Follow him on Twitch to see the legend unfold!
Commodore FadedKamui is a huge supporter of indie games and a great streamer who streams on Glimesh . He has proclaimed his intent to dominate the tournament so be prepared for him to leave all of his great manners and niceness by the wayside - that’s just extra mass when he’s coming for the Pizza!
