Thanks Grand Admiral Commissioner Rone! And a warm welcome to all of you for joining us inside the BGL aka the Barstool Gaming League. It will usher in the new age of gaming tournaments here and even more opportunities for the common gamer to get noticed. This idea spawned from the college tournament Gametime put on in the fall which ended up as such an amazing experience, Mop messes aside. General Smitty & the HooliganZ felt like we needed to expand on that ASAP and not just with college kids but also giving anyone out there a chance to strut their stuff and become a true Warzone champion while streaming to the entire world.
So this time we're switching it up a bit and giving YOU the chance to represent your favorite Barstool brands in Verdansk for a 3-week Warzone kill race. It's as much about skill as it is making great content AND making a name for yourself in the world of gaming at Barstool & beyond. 1 person from every team will need to stream in order to compete, with each team captained by a Barstool Sports franchise who you'll represent in the field of battle.
Assemble your trio or submit as a solo solider to get placed in the draft pool before picks and teams are revealed on Tuesday. You'll need to be available the next 3 Wednesday's from 7-10pm ET in order to play. Winning this tournament will take skill, but most importantly heart. If you prove yourself worthy you'll receive the eternal glory of being a Barstool Gaming League Champion along with internet immorality.
This is the future of gaming... THIS IS THE BGL.
Apply to be drafted HERE and check out our 12 teams & rule set below... Full disclosure we've already got a submission from The Mop and although he IS being allowed to have draft eligiblilty, ANY reverse boosting from him or any player out there won't be tolerated or counted.
Barstool personalities can play on the team and be the streamer or can have Stoolies representing them. The teams can change week to week and sub in new people if necessary to work around any scheduling conflicts.
Each week will be Warzone trios with a K/D cap of 9. One person on each team MUST be streaming for the broadcast.

1st place: 25 Points

Top 3: 15 Points
Top 4: 10 Points
Top 7: 7 Points
Top 10: 4 Points
Top 15: 2 Points
Top 20: 1 Point
Each Elim = 1 Point
-The top 3 games are counted during the 3-hour time limit.
-Each week based on how the teams place against the 12 other teams, they will be given points. Weekly scoring:
1st place = 10 points
2nd place = 9 points
3rd place = 8 points
11th & 12th = 0 Points
-The bottom two teams in overall placing are eliminated each week.
-The points awarded will stay the same each week despite teams being eliminated, so week 2 the last place team will score 1 point. Then in week 3 in the custom lobby, the points will stay the same and the last place team will score 2 points.
-Tie-breakers are decided by eliminations in the 3 games that are counted.
Each week, the bottom 2 teams in rankings will be sent home from the tournament. So in week 2, it's not the bottom 2 teams that week, it's the bottom 2 teams based on their ranking over the 2 weeks.
Reverse boosting is banned and if we find strong evidence that reverse boosting has taken place, we have the right to eliminate the player from the tournament and strip the points awarded to that team that week. The team can still compete but will need to replace the player.
