We’re revamping our league structure and point system to better reflect players overall performance over the league season. What does this new system try to accomplish?
Instead of having an Intermediate Division, we will instead fill Champs up to 250 teams. This should increase the lobby size to ensure more matches while still having a barrier between Champs and Open.
Team Liquid is officially sponsoring our Duo league with a $1,000 prize pool! Top three Champs teams will split this prize pool at the end of the season. We will also add the winners streams to our “Featured Streamers” list on our website and Discord, tweet out socials, as well as an invite to our FNPL Tournaments Discord. Here’s the prize pool split:
We will also be awarding $30 to the team who got the most points that night! We will be using our new points system as described below.
The new point system will be designed to adjust on the match size. The more players there are in a single match, the more points the match is worth and the more placements we accept for submission. This gives incentive to play in larger lobbies for the chance at getting more points.
We will also only be accepting your top 10 matches from the season. Here are a few reasons for this change:
Below you can see the placements allowed per lobby size and their associated points. These values may be tweaked before the next season starts, but should give you an idea of how the system will work. A graphic will be made for easier view shortly.
The next season will be starting Monday, February 11th! We look forward to seeing you all there!
