Alpha X is so excited to announce its new circuit that will be replacing the Junior Championships: the EU Ascension League.
The aim of this tournament is still to support the rising stars and semi-pro players in order to offer a competitive environment for those who didn't yet reach the Top 16 of a DH.
Therefore, this circuit will be open to every EU resident who did never reach the playoffs of a DH EU Masters in 2020/2021 or 2021/2022. This rule excludes 27 players.
In 2022, we will have 2 to 3 $1,000 events. The first two are already funded, and we hope to find more money to host a third season this year.
Following the format of the 2021 NA Apprentice, hosted by Sugar, each Season will feature 16 players in Code S and 16 players in Code A, both with a standard GSL style format: Group Stage into single elimination Playoffs.
The players are invited depending on their results during the previous season: Top 8 in Code S are invited in Code S, Bottom 8 in Code A are not invited (8 slots are open through a qualifier) and the 16 remaining competitors are fighting in an Up & Down tournament in order to decide who will be promoted or remain in Code S, and who will be demoted or remain in Code A.
The first season will take place really soon! For this season, the 32 slots, both in Code S and Code A, will be granted through 4 qualifiers.
The qualifiers dates and registration link will be announced shortly. If you're from EU and never made it to the Playoffs of a DH EU Masters, it's your time to shine!
We’re thrilled that the amazing caster Rushi will be switching from the Junior Championships to the Ascension League this year. Foreign language casters can contact us if they want to comment the event in their language.

We're glad to announce that our partnership with the amazing OSC circuit continues as we switch from Junior Championships to EU Ascension League. Each event will grant a total of 1080 OSC points for Code S and 330 for Code A.
