This summer eight teams will battle for a share of the $300,000 prize pool, from the 21st to 24th July in North America. But before traveling on the North American continent, five of the eight participating teams will be determined via regional qualifiers.

With the LAN event scheduled to happen in less than two months, StarLadder will kick off the competition today. All four regions will get the chance to determine who will be their representatives for the second season of Starladder i-League Star Series.

For the European competition StarLadder will run three stages of qualifiers.
