Introducing our brand new monthly seasons format, Gauntlet Contenders and Gauntlet Premier! We're looking to support not only the top professional SC2 players, but also the up and coming players who consistently join our open cup, the Global Open. Beginning in earnest in September 2017, we look forward to bringing you consistent StarCraft II action.
Gauntlet Contenders will be a monthly series with a prize pool of $100, it will be at the same time as our Global Opens's, 5 pm CT on Sunday's, and will replace the last Global Open of the month.
Our goal is to showcase the up and coming player, we'll be inviting players who consistently join our open events. The best part is that all 8 players in the Contender Monthly will get a piece of the $100 prize pool. Points are awarded to participants of the Global Open no matter their finish, with more points the higher you finish. Check here for a Google Docs spreadhseet for full information!
