Please be advised that signups are only open for the ladder. Due to upcoming holiday season we are aiming to have these tournaments start at the beginning of next year and ladder ranks will be used for seeding into the divisions(Top 8 > Div 1, 9-16 > Div 2, etc).
We're kicking off with a showmatch between the current top 2 teams in Aus/NZ - noGG and team Apex! This match will be casted and streamed live on the Cybergamer NS2 twitch.tv channel. The date for the match will be confirmed soon and an update post will be made to let you all know.
Please ensure your team reads the rules thoroughly.
The format for leagues will be based on divisions. Each season will run for 8 weeks and there will be divisions of 8 teams. These 8 teams will play round robin matches over a period of 7 weeks with the top 4 then playing semi-finals and grand finals in the 8th week of the tournament. After the playoffs there will be a single map up/down match between the top 2 of a division and the bottom two of the division above. This format is better explained in the graphic below.
We're currently tossing up the idea of having it be either top 4 vs bottom 4 or top 2 vs bottom 2 for the up and down matches. We'll put up a poll before the leagues roll out so that people can vote on which they'd prefer.
