Hello everyone! IGN Pro League is proud to bring you the fifth week of Killing Spree, and this week WE'RE DOING IT LIVE! This is a weekly best of 3 showmatch, where the winners will earn some cash and return the next week to defend their title. If a team does particularly well and wins multiple weeks, they will earn themselves a killing spree and rack up bonus cash along the way! Just like in the game, if someone is on a killing spree they are worth more gold when they are taken out. Any team that ends a killing spree will also earn some additional prize money. Each week we will invite a different team to compete against our reigning champions.
One new team will be invited each week by IGN Pro League to play against our reigning champions. Any team meeting our 1700+ ELO requirement (Meaning the average solo queue ELO of your members is 1700 or greater) may apply here: http://esports.ign.com/lol/signup
Format & Prizes
Each week we will have a reigning champion playing against a brand new challenger in a best of 3, 5 vs. 5 on Summoner's Rift. The built-in Draft Mode will be used for picks and bans, with 3 bans per team. The first team to win 2 games will be named the King of the Hill or Champion and earn themselves $300 and the chance to play again the following week. If a single team wins three weeks in a row, they will start a Killing Spree, and will earn an additional bonus prize of $100 AND have a $100 bounty placed on their heads. Here's a hypothetical run that a team could go on:
Team A > Team B ----- Team A earns $300
Team A > Team C ----- Team A earns $300
Team A > Team D ----- Team A is on a killing spree and earns $300 + $100 (+$100 bounty)
Team A > Team E ----- Team A continues their killing spree and earns $300 + $100 (+$100 bounty)
Team A < Team F ----- Team F ends Team A's killing spree and earns $300 + $200 bounty
Our first broadcast for Killing Spree will begin at 5 p.m. PST, or 20:00 EST (-05:00) on Thursday, February 9th!
There will be a European rebroadcast on the day following the first broadcast (Friday, February 10th) at 18:30 CEST (12:30 EST (-05:00))
Special! This week we will be joined in the studio by CLG Chauster for guest commentary!
Every game will be commentated by our in-house IGN Pro League casting team of HatPerson (A.J. Mazur) and Baron (James Reilman)! Stream link: http://www.twitch.tv/ipl_lol
