The Premier League goes into season two
posted by Tezzeret, 3 years ago
Admist the controversy surrounding The Premier League, the organizers have announced season two of The Premier League
Season two's league format largely stays unchanged with the exception that instead of a best-of-two series, a best-of-three series will be played. A win nets the winning team one point and the losing team gets zero points. At the end of the season, the three teams with the highest amount of points will get their share of the $10,000 prize pool.
Invited teams have also increased from the original 10 to 12. Absolute Legends have not been invited back despite placing third overall in season one due to The Premier League's target demographic being Europe and America.
Matches are expected to be played daily as opposed to the a weekly playday that we saw from season one. The Premier League is set to start on the 10th of April.
TPL organizer, Laurent 'Ange' Blum has this to say:
We are very happy of the first edition success' which gathered more than 5 millions spectators and produced a lot of great games. Moreover, we have received a lot of feedback from the community and we took them into consideration in order to push the entertainment at his best of the season two. We do hope here at the Premier League that you will all enjoy the season 2. We are doing the best for it. See you April, 10th!
