GAUNTLET SEASON 3 FORMAT HAS BEEN CHANGED, WE WILL NOT RUN THE REMAINING 10 SEASON EVENTS. We chose this because scheduling has been very difficult, and quite frankly humbling. I plan to release a blog post regarding Gauntlets second year of operation. Basically, it's too ambitious to run an online league spanning months. Gauntlet "Seasons" will be a monthly format once Season 3 has concluded.
Gauntlet StarCraft is back in 2017 with a revamped format for our 3rd Season! We decided to change over to an invite-only format, so that we can focus all of our attention on each individual cast, showcasing each player and putting the spotlight where it should be.
- Two events per week. $75 winner-take-all for each.
24 season events
- $3,000 total in prizes, $1,800 from the semi weekly events and $1,200 Season Finals!
- New Points system!
- Players can participate in 8 Season events, top 16 in points are invited to the Season Finals!
Invites and player participation will be tracked / updated on this thread
Rankings as of 5/31/2017
1st: 20 Points
2nd: 14 Points
3rd/4th: 8 Points

$1,200 Season Finals Format
Season 3 Finals will be a 16 player, single elimination tournament, played out over two days, played out June 24-25. The top 16 players in points will be invited.
We are really excited for this new format and are looking forward to it! Hopefully this thread presents the plan in a clear way, but please let me know if there is any confusion. Players who wish to be invited can drop a line on this thread or they are welcome to send me an email at GauntletSC2@gmail.com and we'll go from there. We are actively seeking out players and booking events now, so please don't delay!
Best of luck to all of the players!
