Your neighborhood friendly Villain is proud to announce the details for Split 2 of the Oceanic Open Ladder (OOL) for 2017!
OOL is the start of any Oceanic player’s path to pro, it’s an amateur ladder for teams looking to qualify for the Oceanic Challenger Series (OCS) and then eventually join the ranks of the Oceanic Pro League (OPL).
Below you can find details on how to join the second split of OOL for 2017.
The second split of the OOL begins on the weekend of July 1st where tournaments will continue to be played fortnightly for a total of four tournaments spanning over 8 weeks. The final week will be the playoffs where the top 2 teams of that tournament will be invited to play in OCS promotion tournament and ultimately a spot in the OPL.
Earlier this year we saw an average of 57 teams playing each weekend throughout the split. It is the training grounds for which teams can hone their expertise in a competitive environment as well as gain invaluable experience for the future.
Anyone can enter the OOL, and not every team will have to compete every week. However, competitive teams will gain a natural edge if they play every week consistently for maximum amount of circuit points to make playoffs.

**How do I qualify to the OCS?**
In the simplest terms by gaining circuit points! Each week your team plays in OOL they’ll grab the chance to earn points to qualify for end of split
playoffs and then for a spot in the OCS. The more tournaments you play in the more points your team stands to win; note that although only the
top 2 teams of each group from day 1 preliminaries will move onto day 2 playoffs, every point counts so every game matters!
After the four weeks the top 8 teams with the most circuit points earned throughout the split will play in the playoffs and the top 2 will play in the OCS promotion tournament.

1st – 20 points
2nd – 15 points
