Format and rules
Unlike most previous Code Red tournaments, the March 26 running doesn't feature a bracket, instead pitting all of the teams against each other in a 'race against the clock' type format.
All squads have four hours to queue into matches and get as many eliminations as they can. Leaderboards are determined by kills only, and since wins/placement don't award points, teams have the option of leaving matches early if they feel it offers them a better chance at getting more eliminations.

After the four hours, each team's five highest kill games will be eligible, and the squad that has the most eliminations will be declared the winner.
If there is are any ties, they will be decided by the following tiebreakers:
- Player w/ highest individual Eliminations
- If still tied, compare 2nd highest from both teams
- If 3rd on both teams are tied, both teams will get in one additional game w/ same Eliminations & tiebreakers format.
The overall prize pool for this event is $300,000, but $200,000 will be going to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societes (IFRC) in the top teams' names.
The remaining $50,000 will be offered as prize money, split between the top-ten placers based on this breakdown:
- 1st Place: $15,000 (+ $75,000 to IFRC in players' names)
- 2nd Place: $12,000 ($60,000)
