We are fast approaching the end of Leagues Season 1, on November 25th, and we wanted to give you a quick summary of what to expect as we transition into Season 2.
No Seeding in Season 2
- You will start Season 2 in the same League that you finish Season 1 for both Solo and Faction Leagues. Your starting division will be determined during the first week of Season 2 based on your performance during the Qualification Stretch. This Qualification Stretch will begin on November 26, 09:00 UTC and will last until December 3rd, 08:00 UTC
- For example, Bob finished Season 1 in Platinum League, Division 2. At the beginning of Season 2, he will have the opportunity during the Qualifying stretch to qualify for any Division in Platinum.
- Note that the qualification period will ONLY let you qualify for a division. If your faction changes regions at the end of Season 1, you will start in Bronze for Season 2, and will NOT be able to skip ahead to more advanced leagues.
Season 1 and Season 2 Season Store Rewards
Season 1 Store Rewards Extension - The Season 1 Store items will expire at the end of the Home Stretch, but they will immediately be restored for an additional week until the end of the Season 2 Qualification Period. This will allow you to use rewards from the Season 1 Home Stretch to help purchase Season 1 exclusive content.
New Season 2 Exclusive Characters - Two new Season 2 exclusive characters will be revealed, and become available, starting at the conclusion of the Qualification Stretch, when the Season 1 (restored) content expires. We will also be replacing the non-exclusive characters for Season 2.
Region Transfer: More Regions and Faction Transfer
Even more Regions will have access to Region Transfer as Season 2 begins.
We are happy to announce that we will be adding the ability for Faction leaders to move Factions AND retain their Faction League progress! We don’t have an exact date yet, and are aiming for early 2019: we wanted to communicate this before Season 2 because we recognize that many players are frustrated that they lose their Faction’s League progress when they transfer. Look for additional information coming soon.
