New Star HoSeo
The "IPL Team Arena Challenge 2" is a team tournament organized by IGN.
Unlike the last IPL Team Arena Challenge, this one will have a qualifier. The first online qualifier will begin Sunday, January 8 at 10:00 a.m. PST. The second online qualifier will be on Sunday, January 15. Both qualifiers will be single-elimination.
- A best-of-nine All-Kill Format between two teams with five players on each side. After each game, the losing team picks the map and their next player.
- Tournament format is a true double-elimination tournament. Meaning that the winner of the Losers' Bracket must win two best-of-9 series against the winner of the Winners' Bracket grand final to win.
The IPL Team Arena Challenge will be cast by IGN's in-house casting team: HDstarcraft, CatsPajamas, PainUser, AskJoshy, and DoA.
A prize pool of $18,000 is spread amongst the teams as follows:
*Incredible Miracle, a joint winner of Team Arena Challenge 1, have declined their invitation.
*SlayerS withdrew from the tournament before any games were played. They will be replaced by StarTale, one of the 3rd place finishers of the second Qualifier.
