StarLadder is back with a third season! Similiar to last time it starts off with a season where a few teams qualify for the offline finals in Kiev.

Unlike last time however, where six teams were supposed to attend the offline finals for a round robin into bracket system, there'll four teams starting it out right away in double elimination brackets. The tournament system is in other words as it was in the first season. But before any of that, 16 teams will play 15 playdays and climb the rankings.
