You can see some statporn over here if you like. But only after you remember how cool the first season of WePlay! Pushka League was!
We even proved that Kyle is not always wrong.
But back let’s get back to business. The next stage of WePlay!’s regional league will see a brand new format. Still, it is a bit complex: a couple of divisions, links between them, no tiebreakers and the places will decide the team’s progression… It may sound scary, but our Esports Department made a hell of a scheme to make sure that the teams will be motivated in every match so you will enjoy every map of the tournament. There will be a separate article dedicated to all the nuances. In the meantime, let's go through the main points of WePlay! Pushka League Season 2.
