Welcome to League Play! This league has been created to offer a new dynamic to the gaming scene. What is it to League Play? This is a new way to enjoy the competitive video gaming scene by adding new forms of camaraderie, skill, and strategic planning to the sport. This is a 3-man team event spanning a 4 month period known as a season. There will be 3 seasons offered each year and a new game will be played for each season. During the 4 month span, teams will compete twice a month on a bi-monthly schedule totaling 8 events. Each of the first 7 events the teams will face two other teams for head-to-head matches and score points for their team as well as attain individual win/loss records.

7 of the 8 events will accrue points for the team in order to provide their rank in the 8th “Finals & Party” event. In the 8th event teams will be placed in a special bracket based on their seasons score from events 1-7 and compete for the prize money accumulated during the season. 1st & 2nd place will be awarded a 65/35 split of the pot and special prizes will be given out for various personal and team accomplishments such as the highest win average and the most team dominations among others. In a 10 team scenario that is $455 for each team member for 1st place and $245 for each team member for 2nd place!

A new strategic component is introduced in this format as well, how do you match your team against the other on who will play who, do you sacrifice your weakest member to the other teams strongest or do you match up equally? Do you submit your seating arrangement in “blind format” so the other team can only guess the order your team is playing in. Unlike single competitions, the skill to play is not the single factor but the teams’ decisiveness in knowing each other and studying their opponents that can turn the tides on a match-up. With 3-man teams you also don’t all have to be “the best” you work as a team to accomplish the win, one team member has a bad night and loses but his teammates hold strong and carry the team to victory. The new dynamics are endless.
