Overview

Updated Season 2 overview.

Season 2 of the HCS features a $250,000 prize pool spread out over three offline events, seven online cups and one open online cup.

HCS Points

Season 2 point breakdown.

Season 2 features a new point and event tier system. All LANs are now classified under the same tier and offer the same amount of points, regardless of prize pool.

Roster Rules

In order to retain points throughout the season, teams must retain at least three members of their lineup. There are now three transfer periods in the season, an increase from the two in Season 1.

Transfer Periods

  • Transfer Period 1: April 26 - May ~8[2]
  • Transfer Period 2: May 17 - May 23
  • Transfer Period 3: June 7 - June 13

Maps and Gametypes

Iron Games Atlanta 2015 will feature no additional maps or gametypes to those seen in Season 1.[3]

Preseason Cups

Season 2 preseason overview.

The preseason cups help seed teams going into the season. The first LAN event, Iron Games Atlanta 2015, is seeded by a combination of preseason results and FFA results.

Online Cups

Season 2 Online Cup format.

Online Cup prize pools have increased from season 1, going from $1,000 to $3,000. They now take place over two day spans instead of one day. Saturdays feature the Open Bracket, where non top-8 seeded teams play in best of 3 series, while Sundays feature the Legendary Bracket with the top 8 teams facing off with the top 8 open teams in best of 5 series. As a result of the first cup being cancelled, it has been announced that the remaining seven cups will feature increased prize pools to make up the difference.[4]
