BattlePoker is a StarCraft 2 Arcade mod that combines poker betting with an SC2-powered unit autobattler. Players are dealt up to 2 cards containing units costing between 12 and 50 supply and bet on their strength. Instead of referencing a hand ranking chart to determine winners, the units spawn and are controlled by AI fighting to the death to see who takes the pot. Antes rise over time until one player remains!
We've already had two successful tournaments and are looking to expand our offering with a six week long 32 player league. Players will play one game a week, every Thursday at 01:00 GMT (+00:00) for six weeks fighting for qualification points along the way. At the end, the top 8 players will compete at a final table to take home exclusive in-game avatars as a prize, and an automatic invitation to our Season 2 tournament with cash prizes on the line.
There will be a two week qualification period beginning on Monday, May 17 4:00pm GMT (GMT+00:00) and ending Tuesday, Jun 01 3:59am GMT (GMT+00:00). At the end of the qualification period, the top 32 submitted qualified peak MMRs from the NA server will be invited to join the league. In order to track MMR, players will need to join our Discord and post a full screenshot of their peak MMR leaderboard which will include a timestamp from the in game stats screen. Points will be tallied as we play every week and all games will be casted and uploaded to YouTube. Players will be allowed to drop their lowest score across the 6 weeks, in part to allow players to miss a week without tanking their scores.
We do ask that players signing up make sure that they are willing to commit to the full 6 weeks of play, as signing up and ditching will affect your invite status to future BPL events.
Thanks for checking us out, we hope to see you at the tables!
