Tournament Information[edit]

Structure[edit]

  • 40 players placed into five divisions of 8
  • The top two finishers in each division will be seeded into the main bracket.
  • From the remaining players, the top 20 will be placed in five qualifier brackets. The winners of each qualifier bracket will be placed into the main bracket.
  • The bottom 7 of group play will get knocked out and will be replaced by new qualifiers for NASL 3.[1]
  • The last spot for the main bracket will go to the winner of the semi-open tournament, which consists of 16 invitees and 16 players who will qualify through 2 open tournaments. The top 4 of the semi-open tournament will also qualify for a spot in NASL season 3.[2]

This assumes rules remain the same as in the first season. The NASL has not provided any official statement regarding tie-breaking for the second season.

Tie-breaking rules:

  • 2. Match score difference (walkovers haven't always resulted in a recorded loss for the missing player).
  • 3. Game score difference.
  • 4. Head to head score.
  • 5. Tie-break matches.

Participants[edit]

  • Due to conflicts involving travel accommodations, it was announced on August 11th that the Korean teams oGs, StarTale, WeMadeFox, TSL and Prime will not be participating.[4]
  • After six weeks of play Peru Terran Fenix said he would withdraw from the league due to latency issues. Following discussions with the NASL he later retracted that decision, but didn't show up for his remaining games. This lead to NASL forfeiting his spot in this and future NASL seasons.[5]
