CHALLENGER, EVOLUTION & AMATEUR
Welcome everyone, to CSGO with LPL. As you may have already seen here we are fast tracking our road map, and bringing you A LAN for the CSGO Pro division.

Prize Pools
Pro: $5k prize pool (Accommodation Included + $2500 per team for travel), 8 team invite division
Challenger: $3k prize pool, 8 team invite division
Evolution: $2k prize pool, 16 team invite division
Amateur: $3k prize pool, open for all players

Total: $13k AUD prize pool

In order to compete in Challenger, Evolution and Amateur, players must have an active subscription during the season.

Our intent is to introduce a pathway for the CSGO community so teams and players can be broken up into different skill groups, to provide fair games against equal opponents, while providing a way to climb those divisions until you reach the top.

FFYI (Fight for your invite)
Each season teams fight it out in order to progress to their next division. For you to qualify for Evolution, Challenger and Pro you will need to start in amateur and work your way up the divisions. Each FFYI will be held after a season concludes, and is based on the results for each division. Matches are always a BO3 and can be scheduled throughout the allocated time frame.
