We would like to thank everyone already for signing up, apply'ing for invites and helping out on our discord server. We are overwhelmed by the succes we are having and we see that a lot of teams want to prove themselves in our tournament.
Here are some clarifications:
Main stream for this leauge: https://www.twitch.tv/absolutelegendstv/
We currently use the name Absolute Pro League, we might still have to change this name because after we announced RIOT posted guidelines to not use this in small tournaments. If you have any ideas for a new name that is allowed please let us know on discord.
The open qualifier and invites:
We started with 2 open qualifiers of 64 teams for 2 invite slots in our league. Because of the succes and being full within 24 hours we expanded the first qualifier to 128 teams and also 3 invited slots. This still is not enough since a few hours later everything was full again so we thought about the following format:
2 open qualifiers of 128 teams and from each qualifier 4 teams will move on to the proleague, that means 8 slots from open qualifiers!
32 teams will be in the league divided in 8 groups of 4, top 2 of every group will advance to the final bracket.
Format: Qualifier matches are all bo1 and quarter final matches are bo3 for a slot in the pro league. The proleague all matches will be BO3.
Everyone playing their matches will have to post their screenshot of the result on our discord channel ( tournament results ).
Dates and times:
Open qualifier 1: Saturday 25.04 at 18:00 CET and Sunday 26.04 at 16:00 CET
Open qualifier 2: Saturday 02.05 at 18:00 CET and Sunday 03.05 at 16:00 CET
APL: Tuesday 12.05 at 18:00 CET, from there on the first groups A&B all teams will play 1 match. Next will be group C&D that will start on 16.05 then the following groups 17.05 then 18.05 and 19.05. We will always play the last 4 days of the week.
As you can see we also have a donation goal of 100.000€, whatever we will reach in donations we will add to the prizepool. If we would ( i know im dreaming ) reach more then 100.000€ in donations that will go back in everyone working on this league and in creating a next league for everyone to enjoy.
