Black Squad Announcement

Posted By: Diomedes | Jun 23, 2018

Introduction

Firstly, we’d like to say a big thank you to all the support we have received from the community in the past 2 months, within this article we will be announcing a new competition, tournament changes, a new tournament format and lots more!
 

League Announcement

We are happy to finally announce the ESHUB Black Squad League!

Alongside our weekly tournaments, we have decided to create a league for Black Squad. This league will only be for the best teams per region and will allow us to live-stream and cast matches every week using the competition channel!

 

Format

It will be 5v5 Demolition!

There will be 4 separate leagues, a league for each region with 8 teams per league

-Europe
-Asia
-North America
-South America

  • 4 Teams will be invited

  • 4 Teams will qualify

  • Top 4 teams of each League will qualify for a seeded bracket play AKA Playoffs

Winner of each Playoff will become the number one team in their region!
 


Rosters

Min Players = 5

Max Players = 8

This means teams are allowed 3 substitutes, since leagues last over multiple weeks, subs will be needed for most teams

 

How to Qualify

Teams that have been invited to the league will be announced over the coming weeks.

If your team were not invited, do not worry, you can still compete in the league by playing in our qualifiers. We will be running qualifiers for each region which will decide who qualifies for their league!

  • 4 Qualifier Tournaments per region, winner of each tournament qualifies for the League

These tournaments will take place once per week!

Rule Changes

Starting next week, we'll be making the following changes to our Tournaments and Black Squad Competitive Format:

  • Any match that is best of 1 will now be first to win 12 rounds instead of 8.

  • Teams that win our weekly 5v5 Tournaments will not be allowed to compete in the next weekly tournament.

    • Example: Team A wins a 5v5 Tournament on the 1st of July. They are then not allowed to enter the next 5v5 Tournament on the 14th of July. After this tournament, they are free to enter again.

    • This will allow for new winners to compete

       

Introduction of credit-entry tournaments & weekly competition schedule

All tournaments will alternate regions, week to week. This means week 1 will be two regions (example South and North America) and the following week the two other regions will have tournaments (example Asia and Europe).
