Firstly, we’d like to give a massive Thank You to everyone who got involved with Season One of our Ironsight League. From those competing, to those who simply liked a tweet at some point, we thank you! Season One attracted a much larger audience than we anticipated, so we’ll be continuing that momentum over into Season Two.
Season One did not boast a prize pool. There were numerous reasons for this, the main reason being that the game is still very new, as was the competitive community. However, we now feel that the competitive foundations have started to take shape within the community, allowing us to host a prize for Season Two.
Season Two Basic-Format
Season Two of our Ironsight League will see the return of both European and North American Leagues in the form of the European Championship League and North American Championship League.
The following information applies to both European and North American Leagues:
Leagues will have 7 qualification tournaments, twice a week. These tournaments will take place over June and the start of July. Only the winning team from each tournament will qualify for the league.
Season Two will therefore be made up of 7 qualified teams and the winning team from Season One. This will truly be a battle of the champions.
The league prizing will be based on the number of teams per qualifier.
Qualifiers will cost 5 credits per player ($3.25).
Initial predictions estimate the prize to be around $250 for Europe and a $500 for North America.
First qualifiers will take place on Saturday 30th of June.
Thereafter, there will be two qualifiers a week, for three weeks.
We will run one qualifier during the week and one qualifier at the weekend.
1st Qualifier (EUROPE)
1st Qualifier (NORTH AMERICA)
In the event that a qualified teams splits before the league or during, one of three scenarios will occur:
Rosters will be severely restricted. You will not be able to freely change your rosters as you see fit during the league. You will be required to stick together. If you cannot make this commitment, do not enter. You will have the opportunity to make a roster change at some points in the league and you will be allowed to have substitutes on your team.
Teams that do not qualify for the Championship League will be eligible to compete in a secondary league.
This League will run with little to no prize but will allow for teams to practice. The winning team of this League will also be invited to participate in Season 3.
