Format + Registration
The format for this season will continue to be the double-elimination best of 3 format. This tried and tested format gives teams a second chance to redeem themselves after an initial loss and will definitely lead to interesting lower-bracket runs! If you’re interested in participating, you can either comment on the announcement post on the CS:GO Active Malta FB page or contact David Busuttil Delbridge, the admin for the event.
Malta National League 5 Prize Pool
Eden has decided to continue to distribute the prize pool using the new distribution system we saw back in Season 4. As a reminder, this system includes the 3rd placing team and reduces the amount the 1st and 2nd placing team receive. With very few active CSGO teams within the local scene, this will surely temp teamless players to band together and try their luck.
This is how the prize money will be spread:
- 1st – €750
- 2nd – €450
- 3rd – €300
Scheduling + Broadcast
The main announcement states that the Malta National League Season 5 will play out between the 10th and 11th of July. As per usual, the event will stream on the Eden Esports B stream.
European Development Championship
Like all the seasons prior, the winner of the MNL will have the chance to represent Malta as a wildcard team invited to the closed qualifiers for the 5th iteration of the EDC. This is a great opportunity for teams to get high tier Counter Strike experience which will help them grow as players. It also gives the winning team bragging rights with all matches being featured and documented on HLTV!
Since CSGO’s inception, we’ve seen the Project Eversio squad crush the local scene. The MNL has been no different with teams putting up a good fight, but never enough to bring Eversio’s dominance into question. Will we finally see a new team step up and use this last opportunity to dethrone the reigning champions or will Project Eversio win all 5 seasons solidifying their absolute dominance on Maltese CSGO?
