Best-of-Five (Bo5): Top 2 Seeded Teams Battle It Out
Each series is a best-of-three (Bo3) and each broadcast will showcase two series.
Prize Pool and Payout:
Each participant is receiving a base appearance fee each week just for playing, however, things get spicy at the end of the season with an overarching prize pool, which looks like this:
1st Place: $500 + 35% of Community Prize Pool (CPP)
2nd Place: $300 + 35% of CPP
3rd Place: $200 + 15% of CPP
4th Place: $200 + 15% of CPPThe Community Prize Pool functions very much like the Bounty system we’ve been running during Fight Nights for the last year: 60% of all Bits/Donations/Tips contributed during a CCL broadcast will go into a giant prize pool that will be divided up as shown above between the teams.
