The first season was a resounding success. Multiplay has decided to start a new season this year based on the same format as last year. THe group stages will be round robin formats.
The finalists of last season CAZ and FM Esports have been invited directly into the tournament. Season 2 will have an increased Prize Pool of 20000 Pounds.
Multiplay Esports is extremely excited to announce Season 2 of the UK Masters. Bringing more games, more players and more prizes to the UK Masters lineup.
Season 2 adds two more titles to the UK Masters roster, as League of Legends and Hearthstone join the returning Counter Strike: Global Offensive. League has been a staple of the Insomnia BYOC tournament roster for years, and the inclusion of the incredible League Fest at Insomnia58 has further cemented its place in the Insomnia lineup. Hearthstone is one of Insomnia’s biggest titles, with players travelling from all over the world to compete in the Insomnia Truesilver Championship and the UK’s own TPG_Ness taking the top honours at the Truesilver 2 at Insomnia57 in March of this year.
Featuring over £45,000 in prize money across the three titles, UK Masters Season 2 will retain the prizing structure from last season. Prizes will be awarded to teams and players during the league and playoff stages of the competition alongside the prizing from the Grand Finals, taking place live from Insomnia59!
CS:GO League of Legends Hearthstone £20,000 £20,000 £7,500
Both Hearthstone and League will feature 2 online qualifiers, where the top 4 from each will advance into the league. Counter Strike will feature 3 online qualifiers, with the top 2 from each advancing. Both CAZ eSports and FM eSports have been given an invitation into the Season 2 league stage after finishing first and second in Season 1. Qualifiers begin on the 21st of September with Counter Strike: Global Offensive, followed by League of Legends and Hearthstone on the 26th of September.
