While the North American Star League prepares for NASL Season 4, the crew has but one question for the public:
Who will survive The Gauntlet?
Beginning Wednesday, August 1st at 10am PDT, the NASL Gauntlet will be a regional King of the Hill (KoTH) style tournament that is open to the public. Each night, players from the designated region who are in the announced Battle.net lobby chat will have a chance to be selected in one of the 9 games for the evening.
There is $75 on the line for every game, and the competition is open to the public! All interested competitors need to do is be present in the lobby for a chance to play.
After each region has been played 3 times, the audience will be asked to vote for their favorite player in the Gauntlet via the NASL FaceBook Page. Voting will be limited to players who have earned at least $150. Once the voting completes, the four most popular players will compete in a single elimination tournament for the Gauntlet.
First place in the Gauntlet will earn $1000. Second place in the Gauntlet will earn $500.
