The next season of StarLadder Star Series starts, where a new system will be implemented. Changes did not affect the prize fund amount and for now it is $80,000. Community can increase it due to the sales of in-games tickets. All teams "survived" after the next reshuffle will participate there. Thus, we will see many teams, which are principal opponents of HR as well as new participants of StarLadder.
Participants are divided on four quartets four teams each, and teams will play three matches each until three wins (bo3). Teams, which are at the last places in their groups, will get into the Pro-Series division. Teams, which placed the third in the group stay in the elite division of StarLadder. Two teams, which are the first in the group, will proceed to the next stage of the tournament.
In the second stage of the tournament, eight participants will be divided on two groups four teams each, where the best two teams of the group will enter the lan-finals.
