Earlier this week we announced that the CPL website had been released. On Tuesday, the CAL website also made it’s return, sporting a similar design to the CPL site. The official status of CAL is that they will only be offering Heroes of Newerth competitions at the moment.
As of this time, the league has no plans to expand their game list. Below is an excerpt of the official press release:
The CPL has partnered with S2 Games to run a North American online tournament for Heroes of Newerth (HoN) in conjunction with the launch of the new Caleague.com (CAL).
“I was very pleased when the CPL approached us about the launch of the new CAL” said Marc DeForest, CEO and Founder, S2 Games. ‚”The Heroes of Newerth competitive scene has grown significantly since release and competition is getting fierce. That makes HoN the perfect title for the re-launch and we are very happy that they chose HoN to be the first league showcased.”
Registration for the league will open on September 1 and run through September 29. 128 teams of five people per team will be allowed to enter this inaugural tournament for the new CAL. The format will be 5v5 in a single elimination in a best of one for prelim and best of three for quarter finals onwards bracket beginning on October 8 and ending on October 24.
The winning team will receive Hotel and Airfare to the DreamHack 2010 winter event, where they will compete against seven other international teams for $15,000 in cash and prizes! DreamHack Winter 2010 takes place November 25-28 in Sweden.
