FACEIT is excited to extend its support to North America, with a season of its own.
Every Sunday, starting at 18:00 GMT, the players from North America will be able to face off against one another. The system will be the same as the European one: all players will be placed in a single elimination bracket. The rounds until the quarter finals are Best-of-1, while the quarter and semi finals are Best-of-3. The grand final will be Best-of-5.
You can currently already sign-up for the cup. Check-ins open on that same day at 17:00 GMT.
The top eight will be rewarded with points, which will be added on top of each other every week to create a ranking. The prize of each week will be $50, of which all is going to the winner. As a bonus, the player with the most points at the end of the Season will be flown out to Europe to visit the FACEIT team and studio, and to play in the European Finale.
Format: First rounds will be Best-of-One, Quarter Finals and Semi Finals will be Best-of-Three, and the Grand Final will be Best-of-Five.
