We are starting off a new Quake Live Duel Season number #28. It will take place for the duration of two months like the previous seasons but will be much simpler and less demanding of players in regards to scheduling of games. Unfortunately in past seasons we had to deal with an increasing amount of scheduling clashing, noshows, last seconds drops from tournaments, delays, reschedules - generally speaking the players were becoming less responsible. But from now on that will not matter anymore because the format of the new season is simply: Sunday cups every weekend with points (as well as prizes, see "Rules and Prizes") for the top-8 culminating in a season finale on the last sunday between the 8 players who accumulated the most points through the course of the season. The season finale will take played out with a group stage (2 groups with 4 players) with two players from each group progressing to a single elim bracket. Many will be reminded of Faceit's Quake Live seasons that were held in a very similar format with sunday cups, points and season finals.

The donators from previous season will have a chance to choose the last map until the 9th of November. The choice will be made as following: if person A donates 15 euro, B donates 20 euro and C donates 100 euro, we will do something like "\cv random 135" (15+20+100), and the number will decide which person picks the last 7th map: 1-15 A, 16-35 B, 36-135 C.

Rules and Prizes
Rules for tournaments and events you can read here.
MapPool: sinister, cure, furiousheights, bloodrun, battleforged, lostworld и delirium.
Sunday Cups will be run the same way as before - Full Double Elimination bracket, winner bracket semi finals and finals BO3, the final 2 BO3s (if necessary). All other matches including the loser bracket final BO1.
The prizes through the course of the season will be distributed the following way: Every Sunday Cup will have 3.000RUR at stake - 2.500 for the winner and 500 for the 2nd place finisher. In total the Sunday Cups in season #28 will feature 3.000*6=18.000RUR as prizes. The prizepool of the season finale will depend on the amount of donations. If the whole 18.000RUR can be covered by donations (aside from Alexei A.) then the whole 50.000RUR donated by Alexei A. will be up for grabs in the season finale. Otherwise the missing sum will be deducted from the prize pool of the season finale. So in the worst case - if no donations will be received during the season, the season finale prize pool will amount to 50.000-3.000*6=32.000RUR split between 8.
