"Prestige-Gaming & Bleached Bones" present

Arena League

Monday: Start delayed to 19:00 CET






How does this tournament work?

Sixteen teams compete for a prize pool of 30.000$. The games are played as 3v3 arena matches. Each team consists of five players, but only three of them play at the same time. A special unit frame addon called ArenaLive Spectator is used to show what is happening during these matches. The features include a cast history, crowd control on portraits as well as a cooldown tracker.

The matches start with bans and picks. Each team consists of five players, who are allowed to play multiple classes or specs. During the banning phase the teams can choose which specs the enemy team is not allowed to play and after that, during the picking phase, each team can pick the classes they want to use. These systems help in creating a variety of comps facing each other.

After the comps have been picked the two teams face each other in a best of three series. The first team to win two matches wins the first round. After that bans and picks start again to allow the teams to adjust their strategies. Then the next best of three round is played. The first team winning two best of threes is the winner of that match. After the group phase the teams with the highest amount of points proceed to the finals.

If you don't mind a bit of Russian accent, watch the following video to see the pick and ban systems explained in more detail.

The matches will streamed live on ArenaJunkies.com

It's a private stream. I have the access code but am not sure if I'm allowed to share it. Saw about 100 viewers on the stream yesterday. It's commentated in Russian only, however.

Yes, the Yaspresents tournament was called off. A lot of tournaments currently.

ArenaLeague: See this newspost, commentated in English/Russian, public. Weekends, this Sunday and Monday.
Yaspresents: Internal guild tournament that got postponed.
MiR Gaming: Tournament played this weekend. Apparently many players switched from the Yas guild to MiR.

then why would they postpone the arenaleague tournament if only 100 people are watching a random private tournament? is it because some players are in both tournaments?
