The American Video Game League (AVGL) and DreamHack have announced the Collegiate League of Legends Tournament. The top two teams will travel to DreamHack Austin to play on the Main Stage.
The tournament will begin with an online qualifier beginning on March 30th. Teams will be split into groups of “~8” teams. Then a round-robin format will occur throughout the group stage where the top two teams from each group will enter the playoff stages of the tournament. The top teams will be determined by overall match score. The playoff stage will feature a single elimination bracket that will narrow down the competition two just two teams.
Each of the two teams will then be given $1500 for flights/transportation while the hotel will be covered. The finalists will also receive 3-day tickets for DreamHack Austin on June 1st-3rd. Not only will that be taken care of for them, the finals will be played on the Main Stage at DreamHack Austin and streamed on Twitch.tv/AVGL as well as Twitch.tv/DreamHack.
