Posted By: Randu | 5 months ago

Another season is upon us. After a very successful season, we will be keeping the same format and only change a few things. Season 3 will be split into 5 stages, the same as Season 2. Due to EEG Malta 4.0 Online event, we will be moving the dates by 1 week so Season 3 will start from Monday, 1st of June.

 

Stage 1 - Semi-Pro League Qualifiers


Of course, Semi-Pro league is back where we showcase the best teams live on stream every week. There will be 2 divisisions, 8 teams each division which is 16 teams in total. 1st-4th place teams will qualify directly into Championship Playoffs for €2,250.00 prize-pool. 5th-6th place teams will qualify for Open Playoffs with a €250.00 prize-pool and the last chance to qualify for Championship Playoffs. 7th-8th teams will be knocked out but earn a free spot in one of the LCQ Qualifiers for a chance to qualify for Open Playoffs. Semi-Pro league qualifiers are a single-elimination and best of 5.

Why should you try to qualify for Semi-Pro League Qualifiers?
