As promised, here is the post about the upcoming PRO cup organised by @EstotyGames!
It will take place on Saturday, 24 October at 2 pm CEST.
Only PRO-players above 2000 ELO are allowed to participate.
You can sign up and check out the brackets here.
This time there are $175 in the prize pool which is distributed as follows:
1st place: $100, 2nd place: $50, 3rd place: $25
The format for this tournament is double elimination. In the upper bracket only best of 3s will be played. The lower bracket will be best of 1s apart from the semifinal and the final where best of 3’s will be played again. The grand final is a best of 5 with non specific rules.
Just like in the last PRO cup by Estoty, the picks and bans system is very specific:
(The numbers 1 and 2 refer to the players’ seeds.)
Maps are determined in this order: ban1, ban2, pick1, pick2, ban2, ban1, pick1
This is the order of champion picks and bans: ban1, ban2, pick2, pick1, pick1, pick2, pick2, pick1
Players have to pick three different types of champions, so they have to play a light, a medium and a heavy champion in each match up. The two bans at the beginning have to be medium champions.
In the best of 1s players are only allowed to play medium champions.
Now that the rules are clear make sure to stop by when the action will be streamed on Twitch. The English match commentary will be streamed on rawaleen’s twitch channel.
The only big question left is: Will CoollerZ show up this time?
Come by on Saturday to find out! 😉
