The second season of the Gambit's Cup was announced shortly after the bold success of it's debut season. With the unexpectedly large following the first league had, it was a guarantee that Gambit's Cup would attract important sponsors which it's predecessor had failed to conjure. Thus, the Twitch.TV Gambit's Cup was born with total prize money equating to $1010.

The league itself was set to start exactly one month after the first season in order to keep the hype from the original as, while the season went much better than expected, it had still been too small for people to truly remember it through a large downtime. And so, the Twitch.TV Gambit's Cup was released with a new, larger and more inclusive rule set encouraging professionalism among the teams as long as a massive regular season schedule.

What this meant for our fans was simply 21 weeks of endless entertainment every Friday and Sunday.
