The ‘Regular Series’ is the foundation of our league system. It offers teams of different levels a chance to participate in an organized league system and to gain valuable competitive experience in the eSports scene. That’s why there are no restrictions for teams to get a spot in the ‘Regular Series’ based on pure Elo or rank alone. However, we want to point out that, due to legal protection for minors and privacy, for participants to be able to play in the ‘Regular Series’ as well as any other event connected to the ICS they need to be at least 16 years old or of legal age, respectively, depending on the particular game.
Essential to the ‘Regular Series’ is a divisional system that divides the teams into separate groups. The 1st and 2nd division will consist of eight teams battling it out in a round robin format. Subsequent divisions will contain four complete brackets. For more information refer to the ‘Master Rulebook’. A season usually takes seven to ten weeks depending on the playoffs and relegation games. The winner of the 1st division will be crowned ‘ICS-Champion’ of the respective season. The ICS aims to broadcast a multitude of games via Twitch.
