Plateau - Runescape Pure League

First things first, congratulations to Element (Finn, Doyph, Giga, Wessel, Jake, Runs, Andreas) on winning our first tournament - their video can be found here.

With our first formal tournament being a huge success, being one of the most entertaining tournaments to both watch and play in quite some time, we wanted to again push the bar and do different again to try and bring the community together.
Instead of the normal tournaments where some matches would be predetermined, we wanted to put together an event where it really felt like anyone interested in playing could have an impact on their team and have most things be evenly matched as they can be.
Everything down to the premade team identities is done to encourage putting aside all things outside of the league and playing for something independent of any other activities. Fun and competition are the focus.

8 captains draft their team (6 each for rosters of 7) from a pool of players that register from all over the community in a streamed draft, then navigate a 2-3 week regular season where every team plays each other once (best of 5 rounds).
"Regular season" matters, with the top 2 seeds moving onto the playoffs with a first round bye, while the bottom 2 seeds won't even make it into the playoffs.
Playoffs are single elimination, best of 5 rounds.
At least half of the regular season matches will be streamed on our twitch, with the entirety of the playoffs being streamed.
Teams will fight for a current prize pool of 400m, but we're actively looking for ways to get it to 1b+ by the finals to match everyone's effort. (Sponsorship opportunities for server and stream media are available, please contact me if you're interested)


We thank Sharkbrew for allowing us to cross-promote to raise awareness and hopefully encourage more people to register.
Our hopes is that this is a fun way for not only existing players to have a bit of consistent action to start off the summer, but for players that don't get as much time in environments where they are encouraged to improve to do so as well.

- also, paying homage to the IR team who originally did RPL with some of the original team identities etc, shoutout to them for the original ideas -
