Format [1][edit]

  • Regular season

Each of the 16 teams will face each other one during 15 weeks with a pre-determined line-up. If some teams are tied on a rank which is qualified for the Playoffs/Playdowns, the direct comparison in encounters between these teams will count. If they are also tied there, the most won rounds in the actual season will determine.

  • Play-offs / Play-downs

The four most successful teams of the season will play the playoffs, where the ranks from 1-4 will be determined. In the first round seed n°1 encounters seed n°4 and seed n°2 encounters seed n°3. All playoff participants are qualified for the following 4PL season in 1st division. The playoff is played in Bo5.

The teams ranked from 12th-to-14th after the regular season have to defend their 1st division place against the three most successful teams out of the 2nd division. The playdown is played in Bo5. Every team that wins 2 rounds is qualified for the following 4PL Clan League season in 1st division.

The teams ranked on the two last positions have to leave the 4PL Clan League.

Participants[edit]

The 6th team initially invited Team Alternate was forced to cancel its participation due to management issue. Alien Invasion and Apex competed for the spot. Alien Invasion won and the second team of its Qualifier Group, Sypher, was automatically qualified.
