Announcing, for the first time, the Australian Amateur League where you, yes you, get to take part in one of 3 events from the 29th of June until the 3rd of July! The main event will consist of 16 amateur teams fighting it out in order to grab the title of being the first team to win the Australian Amateur League. The other 2 events will be something special indeed, 8 teams will fight it out in the arena and 4 teams will spam it out in battlefield as their opponents choose their heroes for them.

Are there Prizes?
We are hoping to get Valve to allow us to sell tickets for the league which would be the main income for the prizes. If there is prizes there will be 1st and 2nd Prizes and they will vary event to event.

Want to Participate?
The main event (Captains Mode) is only for people from 0k upto 4k MMR, smurfing is not permitted. The deathmatch and Reverse Captains WTF Mode is open for all players.
Registrations will end the 1st of May or when every team slot is filled! So please apply at the url below:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1a2EOQ_2NSX1soG65AQUwq5okC8rkq_Bt5aDXWu7lFPQ/viewform

Will there be casters?
Yes there will be casters, Wraze and 4 amateur casters have agreed to cast for the League.

FAQ
Just some questions that has been asked:

What does it mean by 'Australian Team'?
Well the team has to be Australia based, so at least 3 out of the 5 members has to be from Australia and all the members in your team has to be in South East Asia.

I am just over the 4k mmr, but I want to play?
Well we will decide if your mmr is classified as a borderline mmr. If it is you'll be allowed to participate.

It really is annoying how much Amateur tournaments are hosted that have a cut off point of 4k, i swear they are more than 3/4's that are hosted for amateur if not more.

I get you want to get more people playing (thus more people buy tickets if valve supports it) but imo it really does hinder the scene. This "Hey if you start to improve you won't be allowed to play in any tournaments."

We won't be that strict you could dive back under in 1 match we'd let it pass.

If your over 4k mmr then you can't be in the main event (captains mode) but you can participate in the Deathmatch and Reverse Captains WTF Mode... forgot to add that part thanks for reminding me.

I highly doubt there will be a next time, no offence.
In my experience i have found these mini tournaments are added and once it gets under way the admin team struggle to keep up with the issues of 'rescheduling, disputes, teams not rocking up' etc etc Which is why CG leagues are soo few and far apart.
If you manage to stabilize all that and host another season good work to you mate i just find it highly unlikely as the return you will get out of it will never match the effort it took out of you to even run the comp for a few hours.
