EZL is delighted to announce that Season 2 of the EZL Draft League has begun in South America! With more than 450 people applying to participate, competition for spots in the league was fierce, as everyone wanted to get in on the action. After the draft, 16 teams were formed, and have just now begun to battle it out. Over the next eight weeks, these teams will continue to clash, hoping to claim a share of the massive 65 000+ ICE prize pool on offer.
The teams will be split into two divisions: Aquarius and Taurus. After going through the two weeks of balancing, then completing the five-week regular season – which consists of a round robin stage of teams divided into subgroups, with teams switching subgroups depending on their results – the eight teams with the highest number of points will enter the week-long playoffs. Points will be awarded depending on the number of series won by each team during the regular season, with each series being best-of-three. When the league heads into playoffs, the format switches to single-elimination. Series will remain best-of-three in the playoffs until the final, which will become a best-of-five battle for the championship. This format promises to bring us plenty of action and intense dueling!
This second season of the South American Draft League has plenty of competition. According to the Head of SA, Painkllr, teams to follow include:
- Princesas Divinas – Captain: OneForAII
- LosSacoWeas – Captain: FerchoStyle
