To show your support, all you have to do is play in the tournament and have some fun!
1. Summoner’s Rift – Single Elimination
2. 100% of the proceeds goes to the Boys Town

Dodge Dem Qs! Tournament Rescheduled
We are here to host PROFESSIONAL and EXCITING tournaments for you! If a tournament doesn’t have enough registrants, then we will reschedule it for when more people can play!
We understand that some weekends are better than others, and unfortunately, this weekend turned out to be bad for most of you. We have rescheduled our Dodge Dem Qs! Tournament for July 13th. Hope to see you all there!
So you know, we still plan to be around for the long haul! Our exciting tournaments aren’t going anywhere! We are redoubling our efforts to make sure we never have to reschedule a tournament again! To help us out, please lend us your support by making sure to like and follow us on our social media (links at the bottom of the page) and by telling all your RL and in-game friends about us!
Mayday Payday – The Momentum Builds!
Wow! What an action packed weekend of ARAM! We saw some killer teams pulling off some sick plays to manage some incredible upsets! For those of you who missed the streams, what were you thinking?! The team fights, individual game mechanics, and unique item builds were unprecedented! If you’re an ARAM fan and you missed out in playing or watching the tournament, do yourself a favor and sign up for Dodge Dem Qs
now! Seriously, don’t punish yourself and miss out on any more ARAM action. Life is too short not to test your ARAM skillz!
Our winner, Daddy Dont Stop
, made it through some TOUGH competition! They faced the reigning champs, Keep Calm
, in the Quarter Finals, and had an EPIC game 3 win! After that, they kept their momentum rolling and took it home to win first and $210 cash!
We’d also like to recognize Global Taunt Gaming
for placing second and winning $130! They pulled a Babe Ruth and called their victory well before the tournament, and they nearly pulled it off! They had a great tournament, and we look forward to some exciting things from them in the future!
Finally, we want to congratulate Fried or Fertilized
and Where Is My Teammm
for coming in at third and taking home $80! A special shout out goes to Where Is My Teammm
for making the Top 4 twice in a row! Their consistent domination really shows how ARAM strategy can ensure repeated victory. There are still a lot of novices out there who think winning ARAM depends solely on rolling OP champs. Well seeing the same beast of a team power through its competitors to the Top 4 twice in a row sure puts that myth to rest!
Congrats again to the Top 4 and a big thank you for everyone who joined us last weekend! We hope to see everyone again on June 1st for our Dodge Dem Qs
Riot Alludes to ARAM Specific Champion Tweaks!
Super Nomegeta, a Riot game designer, made clear in a recent post
that they have been experimenting with itemization, game pacing, map features, and other design elements in order to balance out each different game-mode but so far have had limited success.
As such, he says they will be "implementing map-specific balance changes for individual champions."
Super Nomegeta went on to explain that they think this implementation will be live within a few patches from now! He refused to provide any further specifics.
In a recent AMA on Reddit
, Super Nomegeta confirmed his previous post’s comment regarding this concept. Unfortunately, he went on to dash our hopes of seeing this anytime soon. He explained that "It's unlikely you'll see any ARAM-specific balance changes immediately. We may decide to come back and do slight adjustments in the future based on data and how well the TT/CS changes are received."
We all know how Riot likes to announce things wayyyy too far in advance. I recommend not holding your breath on them releasing this functionality anytime soon.
"First Blood" Tournament a Success!
Congratulations to Keep Calm
for taking home the gold and $420!
We’d also like to recognize WSN
for placing second and winning $260! Coming in at third are two teams - Quip Quap Gaming
and Where Is My Teammm
, who both won $160!
We are very pleased that this tournament went so smoothly! We would like to thank you all for respecting each other, ProSauce, and the tournament rules.
Remember to send your replays of your favorite plays during the tournament to [email protected]
if you want a chance for them to be in our highlight video!
If you had fun this weekend, please lend us your support! Let your real life and in-game friends know about us! We could also use your support on Facebook
, and Reddit when you see our posts! Your support will help our message spread so that our next tournament will be much larger! With your help, we will be regularly hosting large tournaments in no time! Not only will that mean we can continue to grow and offer you ARAM tournaments, but also that each tournament’s prize pool will be much larger!
Registration for the “First Blood” Tournament is Closed!
We have 34 teams registered for this tournament! Because of the odd number of teams, our bracket generation software automatically assigned BYEs for a majority of the games during the first round tomorrow. So for many of you, your first match starts at 3pm.
Just because you are officially slated to start at 3pm, however, doesn’t mean you can’t start early if your Team Captain agrees!
Check the "First Blood" Tournament
page to see who your first round matchup is!
We will be streaming select matches of the tournament. You will know if you’ve been selected if you receive an invite to your friends from “ProSauce ARAM” in-game. ProSauce ARAM will spectate your game, and stream it on Twitch.tv.
We were unable to get a shoutcaster for this first tournament, so the stream will only have music, and no shoutcasting.
Tune in to our stream at 1pm EST on Saturday, April 27 at www.twitch.tv/prosaucearam
Finals Guest Commentator
We are excited to have Gweedo and his team from Just Ok Gamers

1. Each tournament may have any number of BYEs to ensure seamless tournament progression
2. For now, BYEs are awarded to teams based on order of re-registration (starting today, not retroactively)
3. We’ve eliminated the Division based system for the brackets – we are pleased to announce that each tournament will have only one bracket that will be generated to accommodate all number of participants!
4. To replace the Division based system, we’ve created a Match ID system, so when you are reporting your victory, it will be important that you also include the Match ID
We are excited to announce that we will be streaming certain games in the “First Blood” Tournament! We didn’t think we would have streaming for you guys so soon, but we’ve received a lot of requests to get this rolling!
We will have a live stream of our Finals match by our friends, Just OK Gamers! We will announce further details in the upcoming week.
An admin will contact certain Team Captains as the tournament progresses to coordinate logistics should your game be selected for our live stream!
