*What is Conquest?
Conquest is a match format which aims to be a simple method of increasing character diversity in a competitive tournament. This essentially means that within a round, each team can only pick characters that they haven’t already won a match using. This means that to a win a Best of 3 Match, a team must field 8 characters total. If a team loses a map, they do not have to change characters, but may do so if they wish, as long as they do not pick any characters with which they have won a previous map in that round.

Good luck, Warriors!
