The e-Lig University Series kicked off last weekend with 24 players competing in the Open series and only three ladies taking part in the All-Ladies competition.
The e-Lig series is a competition involving six University teams with each University bringing in 4 participants (Open series) and 1 participant (All-Ladies series). The competition is divided into four conferences with each University presenting a player in each of the conference.
The e-Lig series sees top two in each conference qualify for the quarterfinals whereas each position finish from each conference moves straight for position playoff. For example, if player A finishes 3rd in Conference A, he or she will meet all players who finished position 3 in each of the conferences to play for ranking positions (9th – 12th). This goes on for all other group stage position.
Position 1-2 in each conference qualify for main cup quarterfinals
Position 3 in each conference qualify for (9th-12th) playoffs
Position 4 in each conference qualify for (13th-16th) playoffs
Position 5 in each of the conference qualify for (17th-20th) playoffs
Position 6 in each of the conference qualify for (21st-24th) playoffs
POINTS AWARDING SYSTEM
The e-Lig University series uses a reverse point ranking system where the total number of players represents the amount of total points gained in each of the series tournament. The e-Lig series has 24 participants and thus the winner of the tournament gets 24 points whereas the last placed player gets 1 point.
