How it works

Every team manager has a budget of $5500 and can buy up to five players. The chosen players will earn points based on their performances in the ESL One Cologne 2016 matches.

At the beginning of each tournament day, before the first match, all rosters are locked and you cannot change any of your players. Rosters will be unlocked at the end of each tournament day and you can add and remove players again.

After the bracket phase, team managers will be awarded another $5000 to freely pick from the remaining players to add to their roster.

Since decider matches in the group stage, as well as all playoff matches, are played best of three and can henceforth have a different amount of maps played, we multiply the results for all matches to 3 maps. This means the stats played by each player per match will be added up, divided by the number of maps played and multiplied by 3.

A full lineup of five players is not mandatory, you will also get points if you have only four or less players in your team.

You can also create as many private leagues as you want to play with family and friends!
