Plazma League Season 2!

Hello everyone!

Today marks not only the start of a new year, but the start of Season 2 of Plazma League. We hope to expand last year's event into both a bigger and more compelling event, with major changes that we feel cements PL as the premier PB2 competition!

For those of you who do not know what Plazma League is, here is a brief explanation.

What is PL?

PL is a team PB2 competition, in where teams of 8 players compete in 3v3 matches with the goal of winning 15 rounds before your opponents. These teams are comprised of 7 players and one manager, with the players being selected in this years new draft format. Each week you will play 3 matches against your opponent (decided before the season), with the competition itself lasting 10-12 weeks (depending on the number of people who participate in the event). The first goal is to win as many games as you can during the season, to be crowned "regular season" champs After the "regular season" ends, there will be a playoff tournament as well, pitting the teams against each other in an elimination format to crown "playoff" champions.

How does PL run?

To go into greater specifics, each week your team will be competing in 3 matches against an opponent team. These matches will be decided ahead of time, and will feature 3 randomly selected maps in different map categories for you to battle in. (Example provided below from last season, maps have changed as of this year to feature more maps than ever.)

The results from these matches will be compiled and saved in a league board that looks similar to this. As you can see, each win awards your team with two points, and each loss results in no points. (This was last years table.)

Not only team results are recorded, however. Individual results from each match are recorded and put towards an individual stats leaderboard, with a new points system this year that we feel better represents each player's individual contributions. Perform well, and you can see yourself getting a high place on the leaderboards and maybe even reach the top 20, (all star), or win MVP!

How will teams be selected?

This year, we are implementing a change to in order to prevent teams from being too overpowered and compiling all the top players into one team, which is the new draft system! This year, the team managers (the people who run the teams, pick lineups, pick players, essentially run the logistics of each team), will be picking teams through the aforementioned draft, which runs like this: The first round (for the sake of an example we will say there are 8 teams, but the amount of teams we have will be determined by how many people join the event), will have its order randomized, then it will flip back and forth each round. This would look something like this:
