While the World Championships is well underway, our Astralis Talent team is busy competing in the Aurora Open 2022 hosted by the NLC.
The Aurora Cup is a tournament meant to strengthen the divisions in the NLC in a competitive practice environment and is ongoing between the end of the split and the off-season.
Thirty-two teams compete in the group stage, where the top two teams in each group advance to the playoffs.
The format then consists of a single elimination bracket where the remaining teams compete for the combined prize pool of 9.800 euros.
