With the start of Leagues Season 3 here, we wanted to provide a quick summary of what to expect with the new season.
No Seeding in Season 3
- You will start Season 3 in the same League that you finished Season 2 for both Solo and Faction Leagues. Your starting division will be determined during the first week of Season 3 based on your performance during the Qualification Stretch.
- For example, Bob finished Season 2 in Platinum League, Division 2. At the beginning of Season 3, 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 2, you will start in Bronze for Season 3, and will NOT be able to skip ahead to more advanced leagues.
Faction Region Transfer Update Is Coming!
- Shortly after the beginning of Season 3, we will release a game update (18.1) that allows Factions to transfer regions without losing their current League standing! We’re aiming for the end of January for the update to be available to all players.
Season 3 Rewards
Stretch Rewards - We’ve made some changes to Stretch rewards for Season 3:
- Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum league players will be awarded Coins at the end of each stretch if they are promoted.
- All Diamond league players will receive a Coin reward at the end of each stretch.
- Coin rewards for the top three ranks at each division have been increased.
- Season 3 Qualifier will not award Coins.
- League token reward amounts have been increased at every division.
New Season 3 Exclusive Characters - Two new Season 3 exclusive characters will be revealed, and become available, starting at the conclusion of the Qualification Stretch. We will also be replacing the non-exclusive characters for Season 3.
- The Season 3 exclusive characters will have unique gear requirements for 6-Star evolutions to Tier 3 and Tier 4. These unique pieces of gear (Athletic Jackets and Baseball Caps) will be obtainable in the Gold league store.
