In Season 2 alone, we’ll be giving out over $250,000 by increasing prize pools to all online cups, all LAN events and the Season 2 Finals. We’re also adding Forge maps to the map pool, updating roster rules, simplifying the points structure, and adding a brand new element to online cups: The Legendary Bracket.
As far as the online cup prize pool is concerned thy have increased the figures to these:
- 1st – $1,500
- 2nd – $1,000
- 3rd – $500
They have also shared the schedule in the form of an image that you can see in the gallery below alongside the cup format, the Preseason and Iron Games HCS Atlanta seeding and the HCS points table.
Some new changes have also been made to the terms that you will need to follow. The three prominent ones that 343 Industries listed are:
- Any team with a roster of 4 or 5 that loses a player or drops a player will not lose their points.
