Region Wars Cup #1

   exa_   - 8/8/2019
With RGL HL S3 coming to an end, we are announcing our offseason cup, where the best players of each region can group up together to prove that their region is superior.

The cup will feature 2 groups of 3 teams in the group stages of the first week. The top two teams from each group will move into a single-elimination playoff structure the following week. The cup will take place from August 31st to September 8th. Each region will be represented by team leaders of the same region, which is selected through an application process held on the Forums.


The 6 teams and their leaders are listed below:

NOTE: Due to Pacific Northwest failing to field a leader, as well as interested players, Europe will be taking their slot.
