Splitgate is the latest gaming first person shooter franchise to put their feet on the esports market. As revealed recently by their development team, a new and exciting tournament format will be introduced.
Not only has Splitgate received positive feedback when it first launched, the game still attracts enough audience for big established teams to remain within the community. The team has announced eight organizations for the summer 2022 pro series, some which will definitely be recognized by you. The following teams will participate: Bork, eUnited, Fire Rate Diff, Luminosity Gaming, Moist eSports, Spacestation, T1, and Xset.
The event is set to start with the new implemented format. Which includes a regular season league on June 4th, challengers season June 10th, and finals weekend July 15th. The format will provide a possibility for new and upcoming teams to enter the league via relegation playoffs, making the environment more competitive to stay at the top. Finally it has been suggested that there will be four seasons with this format, as to maintain consistency to the community.
Regarding the prize pool itself, is not too shabby however definitely not compared to the high end esport events as it is still in its infancy. The popular peripheral manufacturer “Astro” and Amazon’s Twitch “Prime Gaming” will be the official sponsors and ambassadors of the project, providing a total of 500,000$ plus in prizes divided in 100,000$ per season, with the biggest prize pool being first place in the finals receiving 30,000$.
