This is the official thread for the Coach Pupil League (CPL) - Season 2!
With the launch of Remastered and Blizzard's decision to make the base game free, Broodwar has had an influx of new players. This presents a unique challenge to a league like the CPL which is designed to foster a competitive learning environment for lower level players. In order to accomodate for the incredibly wide range of skill levels that signed up, CPL season 2 will be a two tiered team league. Teams are split between three categories: Coaches, A-teamers, and B-teamers. Coaches will be responsible for helping their players improve at the game and prepare for their scheduled matches. A-teamers consist of players who are just below the level of competition found in many of the community organized leagues (roughly 1600-1900 MMR). B-teamers are everyone who is brand new to the game or struggling at the start of the ladder (roughtly 0-1600 MMR). Matches between teams will pit A-teamers vs A-teamers and B-teamers vs B-teamers for a fair competition across two skill divisions.
Each week, teams will face off against one other by pitting 3 players from their A-team and 4 players from the B-team head to head in a bo3 match. Maps will rotate in a set order. At the start of the league, teams were balanced from the available players to all have an equal shot of placing first. Now it's up to the players and their team of coaches to see who can improve the most and take home the glory!
First line-ups are due April 8th! First matches are to be played no later than April 15th!
