APM Season 2 with $40,000 purse

TakeTV has announced all the details about the second season of Acer Predator Masters powered by Intel, featuring a prize pool of $40,000.

Less than two months after the end of the inaugural Acer Predator Masters season, which saw HellRaisers scoop the first prize of $20,000, TakeTV and Intel have joined forces for a new edition, which will give away $40,000 in cash and over $5,000 worth of hardware prizes.

A total of 16 teams will be battling it out this season, which kicks off on October 5. The top eight sides from the previous season will be joined by eight invited teams in the league, which will see the participants split into two groups in the online stage.


HellRaisers won the first edition of APM powered by Intel 

The top four sides of the best-of-two round-robin group stage will automatically qualify for the offline finals, inside TaKeTV's studios in Krefeld, Germany, from January 7-10. The event will use a best-of-three, double-elimination bracket, with the grand final being played in a best-of-five format.

The group draw in full can be found below:

Group A Group B
Denmark TSM Europe G2
Germany mousesports Ukraine FlipSid3 Tactics
Ukraine HellRaisers Denmark dignitas
Poland Lounge Gaming Poland Vexed Gaming
Denmark SK Gaming Bulgaria E-frag.net
France LDLC White Europe CPH Wolves
Sweden Property Germany PENTA Sports
Germany KILLERFISH Germany Planetkey Dynamics

TaKeTV will be casting every match in German, while Rahim "Babam" Abdullaev will be in charge of the English stream. Further international streams, in languages like Polish, French and Swedish, will also be available.

For more information about Acer Predator Masters Season 2, check out the tournament's official website. Below you can find the full prize distribution:

1. $20,000 + 5x PCs
2. $10,000

TakeTV should have done it like this Year, with Richard Lewis, HenryG and some Players which were there. Just take Rahim out.

"The top four sides of the best-of-two round-robin group stage will automatically qualify for the offline finals" Is that top 4 from each group or 2 from each group? Not clear from the post - hope its 4 from each group so its 8 teams in the offline finals!
