They will compete in a 6v6, single-elimination tournament that will be streamed live on YouTube Gaming. The event event is called Day of Doom, and viewers can look forward to checking out "never-before-seen gameplay" from Doom's upcoming beta during the show.

The event kicks off on Tuesday, March 29, starting at 3 PM PST / 6 PM EST. Here are the teams:

  • Antonio Brown + Justine Ezarik (iJustine
