DuelCircle Competitive – Season 2 League Format

New for 2022, 10 randomly selected players from a prospective entry pool will compete in both the Spring and Fall Splits. Both the Spring and Fall Splits will feature their own single round-robin with regular season standings resetting at the start of the Fall Split. At the end of the Spring Regular Season, Spring Playoffs and Finals will transform into the Mid-Season Showdown. The MSS winner will earn the year’s first championship title and earn some cool prizes at this new checkpoint.

The Fall Split will provide these 10 players one more opportunity to rise to the top and compete for a title and even more prizes. Dominated Spring? Use that fuel to grind through Fall. Need to rebound from a bad beat? Here’s your chance at a redemption arc.

This allows us to harbor the best competitive talent year-round, while also building individual storylines as we progress through Season 2 of DuelCircle Competitive. Please visit our post regarding changes to Season 2 of DuelCircle Competitive for more information.

Fall Split Regular Season

10 Players will face each-other once in a 5 week single round robin format from Saturday, October 29th through Friday, November 25th. Players play 1 match daily, 2 matches weekly on Saturday and Sunday. During Week 5 we will play the final regular season gameday on Friday, November 25th and the Fall postseason will take place over that weekend. Games begin at 3pm Eastern with a 30 minute time limit.

Fall Split Championship Weekend

The top 6 players will move onto the Fall Postseason based on final Fall regular season standings. The top 4 players will compete in a double elimination format (Upper Bracket) while the 5th/6th seed compete in a single elimination format (Lower Bracket).

Playoff Matches are played in a Best-of-Three series. In between games, players have 15 minutes to reset and prepare for the following game. Similar to the Regular Season, games will also have a 30 minute time limit.

The 1st place seed will be able to choose between the 3rd/4th place seed as their Round 1 opponent in match A1. For more information, reference Section 5 of the DuelCircle Competitive Rulebook.

The Fall Postseason takes place during the Fall Split Championship Weekend on Saturday, November 26th and Sunday, November 27th with 3pm Eastern start times each day.

Official DuelCircle Competitive Rulebook

The Season 2 comprehensive rulebook has information regarding gameplay rules, league structure, eligibility, tiebreaker scenarios, match processes, playoff format, player conduct, and other ancillary items. The Season 2 Official Rulebook may be referenced at any time, here.

Throughout 2022, we’ll be carefully adjusting these rules over time based on gameplay trends within the tournament and within the Ranked 1v1 ecosystem. We want our players to progress throughout the year without the worry of updates impacting the flow of the season.

Fall Split Regular Season Player of the Week Awards

Returning for Season 2 of DuelCircle Competitive, is the Player of the Week Award for each week of Regular Season play. Players can earn 2,500 Crowns for standout performances during their 2 game stretch. Whether a player dominated or heavily improved and stepped up their game (literally), they’ll be in contention to receive the week’s top honors. Player of the Week discussions happen internally, on the tournament broadcasts, and on the Beyond The Spiral podcast.

As a special added inventive, the Player of the Week Award winner for Week 4 (November 19th-20th) + Friday November 25th will receive 5,000 Crowns in place of the standard 2,500 Crown prize!

Player of the Week awards will be announced at the beginning of each Saturday afternoon broadcast at 2:45pm Eastern during the Spring Split Regular Season. Player of the Week Prize codes will be sent to the email address on file after each Saturday’s games. Check back each week for winner announcements!

Week 4 Competitive Ruling:

  • Week 4 Saturday’s Game 4 between Stephen Fire and Blaze reached the maximum allotted time. In accordance with Rule 6.2, Rule 6.6.3, and Rule 8.1, the individual game VOD was reviewed internally by the DuelCircle Leadership Team and non-biased external third party community members to hold a vote and determine a game winner.
    • At 29:48, Stephen Fire’s cast of Furnace was completed within the allotted time period and respective planning phase. To allow for the timer announcement, players are allowed one final round of spell casts (one per player). The final spell allowed to be cast was Stephen Fire’s Helephant. All spells used after 31:19 therefore are not counted towards this decision.
      • Final health: Stephen Fire 3,244/9,041 vs Blaze 6,694/11,600
    • For a majority of the game, Blaze was never below 11,000 health until Stephen’s Helephant, while Stephen throughout the game gradually lost health. Blaze was significantly more offensive while Stephen played passive until the very end. For this reason, Blaze has been given the win against Stephen Fire.
