Stage 1 – Placements & Regular Season (1 March – 25 April):

New teams play 2 placement matches. After that they get placed in either Ruby or Sapphire. Teams from previous season keep their rank and continue climbing from where they left off. Each team can only face the same team twice in stage 1. There are a few systems for promotions and demotions.

Promotion:

  • Ruby/Sapphire: Win 3 games vs Ruby, Win 2 games vs Sapphire or Win 1 game vs Emerald+ to be promoted.
