Mist League 2013
What happened to the Mist League after its second season? This was its website, but alas is now only an edited historical record of the site.

ML SEASON 1 FINISHES AND MLS1C AHEAD!
(tldr: thanks everyone, scroll down for MLC details)
Last week was the 10th and final week of the first Mist League Season. It has been a long journey for us and the teams who stuck with the league. We’ve seen the league change and evolve, we’ve seen it shrink and grow, and now we see the first season come to an end.
We want to thank every team who participated, every twitch viewer, every ML mod, mmorpg.com and Anet for supporting what we all want to see grow and flourish – GW2 PvP.
For some ML teams, this is just the beginning! Soon the finalized ladder will be updated, and we’ll find out which teams ended up in the top 5 spots of each region! This is important, because these 10 teams will be invited to compete in the Mist League Season 1 Championship(MLS1C)!
Once it is clear which teams made the cut, we’ll work with them to find a suitable date for the big event(no less than 3 weeks from now). This will be an event which will reward the top teams with a title as well as cash. ML is hard at work gathering funds to fulfill its $10,000 goal, of which a good part of is already secured through ads, donations, and sponsors throughout the season. We want to hit our $10,000 mark, so we continue to search for additional sponsors.
For those interested in the format of MLC:
The event will begin by splitting the North American and European teams into two round-robin groups. Each match in these groups will be played in a first to 500 format where every team will get a chance to play every other team in their group. Once the matches within the groups are complete, the top two teams from each region will compete in a bo5(best of 5 games) playoff. When the contenders from NA and EU emerge, they will face off in a grand final in a bo5 for the ultimate prize – becoming the first ML Champion, and forever encoding their guild’s name in GW2 history.
Map to be used are as follow: Forest of Niflhel will be used for the Round-Robin. Battle of Kyhlo will be used for the playoff matches, and Legacy of the Foefire will be used for the Grand Final. We plan on continuing the tradition we’ve started, which is to use the same map for the duration of the whole match.
Also as per tradition, we reserve the right to change any of the information presented to you today. Hopefully that is one tradition we can break out of in the future, but as we grow and learn, we want to make sure we are flexible in order to deliver the best experience we can for everyone involved in this endeavor.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me in game at Ruler.1832 or through skype at slav.elenkov where I’m more accessible.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
MIST LEAGUE SEASON CHAMPIONSHIP
At the end of each Mist League Season the top 5 teams will be invited to participate in the Mist League Season Championship. The tournament will consist of 2 groups of 5 teams each. The teams will compete against each other in a round-robin format within these 2 groups. Each match will be played in a first to 500 format.
The two teams out of each group with the highest point total (up to 500 for each game) will move on to the Group Playoffs. Playoffs will be played in a best of 5 games format ( bo5, or first to win 3 games). Once a victorious team has emerged from each Group Playoff, they will then move on to the Final Round.
The Final Round will also be played in a best of 5 games format and will ultimately crown the winner of Mist League Season 1. The top 3 teams in the Championship will receive the bulk of the prize money in a progressive manner. Currently the target is $10,000 total prize money. Please check official Terms & Conditions regarding MLSC (Mist League Season Championship). Below

We're proud to announce the very first Guild Wars 2 Invitational Tournament on August 31, 2013 at PAX Prime! We're teaming up with our partner MMORPG.com to host an exciting PvP tournament where the top North American and European teams will face off in a best-three-games-out-of-five match with a cash prize pool of $10,000 on the line.

The European regional tournament will be on July 27-28 and the North American regional will take place on August 3-4.
Both regional qualifying tournaments will have a maximum of 32 teams. The format will be five vs. five single elimination matches, and the winners of each match will be determined by the victors of two out of three games.
