Playoff qualification and a $500,000 USD prize pool are on the line for teams during each Split of the Regular Season. The 30 teams in each region will be seeded into three groups of 10 teams each, using performance across ALGS Year 2 and the Year 3 Preseason Qualifiers.
Each Split of the Pro League will consist of an online Regular Season in which teams will begin by competing in a triple round-robin format (each group plays each other group three times).
Across this triple round-robin, each team will play 36 matches in six series of six matches each. The top 20 teams by Regular Season Standings will then compete in an online Regional Finals utilizing the Match Point format.
In North America (NA), Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific (APAC) North ten teams will qualify for the Split 1 Playoffs, including the winner of the Regional Finals and the top nine teams ranked by Regular Season points. In South America and APAC South, five teams will qualify for the Split 1 Playoffs, including the winner of the Regional Finals and the top four teams ranked by Regular Season points.
For the Split 2 Playoffs, regional slot distribution will be determined by Split 1 Playoffs performance. The better a region’s teams perform in the Split 1 Playoffs, the more spots that region will gain for the Split 2 Playoffs.
At the end of the Split 1 Pro League Regular Season, the bottom eight teams in each region will be relegated to the Split 2 Pro League Qualifier, where they will battle against top-performing Challenger Circuit teams for a spot in the Split 2 Pro League.
Following the Split 2 Playoffs, any Pro League teams that have not qualified for the Championship will participate in the Last Chance Qualifier to qualify for the world championship.
