Now you may be thinking; "But Jasent, is this not just the same as ECL?"
Well, in a way it is inspired by the great things the guys at Escape Gaming have done for this incredible game. But the Ayre Pro Tour has some major differences. Each event is its own tournament. Yes they offer an amount of points to a player depending on where they finish, and lead to a global final but players are not expected to play all events. For example if a player so chooses, they can sign up for the Ayre Pro League: Season 2, but not sign up for the Ayre Masters Series III. And it is ALL 1 vs 1. I will explain in more detail on how the Ayre Pro Tour works will be released in the coming days with a band-wagoners guide to the Ayre Pro Tour, which will be posted to the Ayre Esports Discord (link below), so stay tuned for that!
The other announcement I have is that the first event of the Ayre Pro Tour is the Ayre Pro League: Season 2, a re branded second season of the Ayre Age League. This will be a tier 2 event on the APT calendar and will kick everything off in style with a $1000 USD Prize Pool. As ACCM won season 1, he is an invited player and will return to defend his crown. The main event of the tournament will take place from October 4th to November 12th, Signups close on September 19th before the qualifiers take place from September 20th - October 3rd. You can find more information on format, brackets and sign up for the Ayre Pro League: Season 2 on the Ayre Esports discord server. https://discord.gg/2aRerFj
