There has been a lot of debate as to what the most Chillwave is over here at Blocland HQ. So much so that our new HR head Glenf had to go to the ER for some stitches. It became volatile.

I needed this madness to stop. We can’t be fighting at work. Blocland is a safe space. In order to restore calm to HQ I had to set up a Chillwave Bracket sponsored by our friends over at Coleman. Coleman the brand you trust!

I initially wanted to do a 64 team field but realized the work involved. We now have a 32 team field with 8 teams in 4 regions.

I don’t have to explain to you how a bracket works so I will not waste my time. Below is each region accompanied with a poll. I’m not going to explain how a poll works either. Just vote who you want to advance rounds, okay?

The regions are:

  1. Toro y Moi
  2. Washed Out
