Hi All @actifit 'ters,

The Season 2 of Poliac Champions League kicks off this coming Saturday. In this post you will find all you need to know about the competition.

Group Setup

As mentioned before, no draws from this point on. The groups are formed using serpentine method, based on rank. The path to Final is already also known for everyone.

My two cents

In Season 1, Group A proved to be the strongest - both Finalists came from it. How do you assess your groups? Easy? Tough?

From my point of view, I am matched again with @cezary-io. In Season 1 I won both matches with high scores, but that was during my vacations... I cannot repeat that performance on a working day. He was then the best player of all who were eliminated after the group phase. Also, @cezary-io was the MVP of the eliminations, scoring 60k in two matches. He will be the favorite of Group A.

@ilodz24hd and @giulius also scored high and left no doubts to their opponents. Even though the latter is the lowest ranked player in the group phase, his rank may not fully represent his potential.

Group A seems very tough to me and I expect high scores in each match here

Schedule

etc.

  • Q1: A1 vs D2
  • Q2: A2 vs D1
  • Q3: B1 vs C2
  • Q4: B2 vs C1

Two legs will be played in each pair:
Leg 1: Wednesday, Sep 22;

Semifinals
