BWUSA.org is prooud to present The Yankee League, which is nearly ready to begin. For those of you who don't know, the Yankee League is a clan league for USA based teams that is structured off the proleague format. Eight teams and two months of action will ensue to determine the Yankee Champ.
This league will hopefully provide a spark of activity and interest in our scene, and produce some awesome games. Similar to the proleague, all games are going to be released as VODS, thanks to an awesome team of shoutcasters that we have assembled. In addition, a giant replay pack of all the games will be released upon the end of the season for all your viewing pleasure. Furthermore, we hope to provide live broadcasting of select matches each week to add an extra bonus.
Before we continue, here's a list of everyone that will be helping out with this league, and without who this probably wouldn't have been possible.
Shoutcasters and Commentators
and possibly one more
Bman + Traelium (banner)
Clash (website <333333333)
Fakesteve + Dirtybird (writing up most of the rules)
Everyone who will watch + participate + follow the league (<3 thanks for keeping the game alive)
Here is some information about the league:
Playdays will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays (two clanwars taking place on each day) starting at 9pm EST. The matches will be played on US West, in channels: op Yankee-(1-4).
The format is exactly like the proleague; each clanwar has 3 1v1s, a 2v2, and an Ace match should there be a tie. All matches are BO1, and lineups + maps will be released ahead of time for preparation and hype purposes.
The four teams with the best record will advance to the playoffs, with 1st playing 4th, 2nd playing 3rd. The two winners will advance to the Grand Final, and the winner will be crowned Champion.
Now let me introduce the teams that will be participating in the inagural season.
