Season 10 is Being Extended!
by Leeloo |

We have some news for you!

We will be extending Season 10 by an additional 3 weeks. this will increase the season length from 16 to 19 weeks. The reason we are doing this is to line up the grand finals weekends more in sync with the other leagues, and will therefore have consecutive weekends of grand finals across VR Master League. We are also increasing it to reduce off-season as we are working on a new formula for season planning, more in depth about this process is to be discussed and revealed in the off-season, but for now we are planning a "Annual Calendar" to showcase all seasons and off-seasons and the off-seasons events in one calendar year, we just need to make sure we are able to execute on this before actually doing it, and it requires a little bit more work to determine possibility. You can find the new updated calendar below as well as being able to do the command "!Calendar" in the bot channel.

We have also been discussing the Open Qualifier, Closed Qualifier and Bronze, Semi and Grand Finals format and we have been getting a little bit sidetracked getting this sorted. but we are hoping to have something final to announce very soon so bare with us a little longer!

Stay tuned!
