2021 spring split
Baltic Masters is a regional esports league operating in three Baltic countries - Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania.
In 2018, Baltic Masters introduced a new structure for esports in the Baltics by implementing a longer running league with competitive prize pools and an opportunity for teams to qualify for other Riot endorsed competitions in Europe. With the Baltics being the smallest region in the European Leagues calendar, Baltic Masters is a great opportunity for organizers to shine a light on local talent by inviting international caster to be able to provide league coverage in English.
The Baltic region is offered two spots in the Play-in stage of the European Masters. The first spot goes to the team finishing on top of the scoreboard after the regular season ends. The remaining spot will be given to the winners of the play-offs. If the same team were to place first in both the regular season and playoffs, the second spot will be awarded to the team placing second in playoffs.
Two open qualifiers will be hosted on Challengermode in the first week of January. Teams finishing in the top 3 will progress to a closed qualifier where they will face off against relegated teams from the previous season.REGISTER NOW!
