Similar to our duo revamp, we’re also making some changes to our squad league to improve the overall competitive experience. What does this new system try to accomplish?
Instead of having an Intermediate Division, we will instead fill Champs up to 150 teams. This should increase the lobby size to ensure more matches while still having a barrier between Champs and Open.
Unfortunately we don’t have a prize pool yet for squads. At the end of each season, we will invite the top 3 teams to our FNPL Tournaments Discord, adding the winning teams to our “Featured Streamers” list on our website and Discord as well as tweeting out socials.
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.
As we said in our Duo League 2.0 announcement, we’re making slight adjustments to the league schedule. Starting next season, squads will be hosted on Friday instead of Saturday.
The next season will be starting Friday, February 9th! We look forward to seeing you all there!
