      Most of the players will also be streaming their matches on their own channels.
      So if you prefer to have a first person view on the games
      you will have the chance to do so!




      Players of the league have to play one match against each of
      the listed opponents. Matches always consist of 10 maps
      - all maps have to be played out.

      Spectators are only allowed in-game if both players agree.
      The exception are the official casters.

      Every map win scores 1 point. In case two players are equal in score,
      the rank is shared – and the prize pool averaged.
      Example: three players share #7 means that they all get
      ($600+$500+$400)/3 = $500.



      Map pool:

      For every match, the order of the 7 maps will be determined randomly
      in advance. The 7 maps are then played in the determined order.

      At any time before the match starts (can be days or weeks in advance),
      both players veto two maps each in ABBA order. The player listed on the
      left will be player B.

      The 3 remaining maps are then played in the order they appear
      in the initial map order for the match.
