The Recreation Rundown

Registration for our inaugural League of Legends Rec League has finally closed! With that happening, there is some housekeeping we need to do, in order to ensure that everyone knows how this league will work, as the format will be different from our usual competitive splits.

Scheduled matches are available for viewing on the SKL website by clicking on “Tournament” under the “SKLeague” tab, or by going to the following link: https://battlefy.com/skl-esports/skl-esports-lol-rec-league/59d6644aec08220342928fa1/stage/59d664b4ec08220342928fa4/bracket/1. Teams will be scheduled to play one game per week, with the teams being responsible for the exact scheduling of their games with their opponent for each week. Scheduling between teams can be done through Discord or the LoL client. For ease of communication between teams on these platforms, team captains will be clearly labelled in Discord, as well as all team captains being added to the SKLe Club in the LoL client. If a scheduled time cannot be agreed between two teams for that week, a scheduled time will be chosen by the SKL Admin Team for early the following week.

After a scheduled game time has been agreed upon by two teams, a tournament code can be generated in Battlefy for their match. However, it is important to not generate the tournament code too far ahead of time, as the generated codes expire after twenty-four hours. Battlefy will track all of the stats for the matches, as well as reporting the outcome of the match, through proper use of the tournament code.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us on our Discord channel! And remember, it’s a rec league, so try to have some fun out there. 😊

 

Warm regards,

SKL Hearthstone Invitational

Hello! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Dylan “Edge” Edgar and I helped to run the last SKL Hearthstone tournament last season.

This last tournament series saw players play from May until July to compete to see who was the best in Saskatchewan. The tournament before that saw players play from November until February (even longer) and both tournaments saw people unable to commit every week for those months. Some dropped out for work reasons, or personal reasons. But many in the tournaments disliked how much time was required, along with a few other issues that arose from the tournament (complicated, streaming schedule, etc) I personally talked with many of the players to gauge what worked, what didn’t, what they would like to see added and what they would like to see removed. So we tried to find a solution.

We believe we found one.

Starting with our next tournament (September 24th! See Below!) we will be hosting tournaments held each month from now until December, with the winner of each of these being invited to the SKL Invitational held at the beginning of December. The tournaments will be of the following format:

  • Swiss Bracket, cutting to either top 8 or top 4 (based on attendance)
  • Winners receive invites, anyone finishing in top 8 or top 4 will receive points
  • Bring 4 decks, ban 1
  • Conquest OR Last Hero Standing (At least 1 of each)
  • FULLY ONLINE, played in 1 day (or 2 if we have enough people, but likely 1)
  • $5 buy-in

The tournaments will start in the morning, with last minute registrations due by a certain time designated on our website or on the Facebook page. There will be registration beforehand (which I strongly recommend) and the tournament/signup/match submissions will be held on Battlefy. We will be streaming the top matches on our twitch (twitch.tv/saskleague).

But wait, Edge. This invitational…only 4 players are going to play in it?

No. There will be 8!

Our first tournament winner, Jonathon “Alarid” Odne, has received the first invite to the invitational.

4 more winners will receive invites. This leaves 3 more spots. These spots will be filled by the players who collect the most points. (5 points for 2nd place, 3 points for 3rd-4th place, 1 point for 5-8th if the tournament cuts to top 8 instead of top 4).  Each tournament you play in, a certain amount of points will be added to your total (which will be displayed on our website sklesports.ca) and the top 3 players will receive invites to the invitational, with one exception.

Lets say Alarid plays in the next tournament and wins it again! This would mean that now he receives 2 invites to the tournament. But he only requires one. We will then transfer that invite slot to the 4th person on the leaderboards, to ensure all 8 slots are filled! Simple right?

I will personally be open to any discussion or comments about the tournaments moving forward, as will others from the admin team. Positive or negative, if you have something that you feel can make our tournaments better feel free to let us know.

Good luck players, and pull up a chair by the hearth!

Dylan “Edge” Edgar
