Hey Everyone, Rage here! Important update for the Amateur League, Thursday, March 16th at 8pm EST is the confirmed date and time for Amateur Bidding. Amateur Bidding is structured the same as Pro Bidding with a couple differences you need to know about. First off, we’ve introduced Managers into the Amateur League. Managers will take the role as a captain to bid and schedule for their teams, but they will not play so don’t worry about seeing InfiniteRain on the spreadsheet, he will not step on the court. Managers will not have a duo going into bidding and will therefore not have any CCV. Captains will have a duo and CCV that will average out to 200 credits (100 per roster slot) Captains will be bidding on their 3rd and 4th roster slot while Managers will be bidding for all 4 roster slots and have all 400 credits to spend in bidding. Another difference from Pro Bidding is the bidding timers. Pro timers were set at 1 hour but that was clearly too long, so we’ve cut this in half to 30 minutes. Anyone not bid on will be drafted onto the teams in an order based on leftover credits and CCV.
Amateur Mixers run by NOPLEX have also been scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday to give players a chance to show off their talents and show their worth, both start at 9pm EST. Sign up here.
