United Masters League announced with $150,000 prize pool

ChallengeMe.GG and Unikrn have unveiled the United Masters League, an invitational tournament with $150,000 on offer.

On top of the prize pool, the 14 competing teams will be splitting a $140,000 sign-on bonus and, as co-owners, are entitled to a percentage of the league's revenue share.

The prize money will be paid in UnikoinGold, described by Unikrn as a "universal token for esports and gaming." Questioned by HLTV.org, the tournament organizers stressed that the prizes are not dependant on the cryptocurrency's fluctuation.

UML Season 1 will begin on Monday

The United Masters League will begin with a best-of-two round-robin stage, running from November 19 through February 8. The top eight teams will progress to the playoffs, which will culminate with a four-team offline event at the M7M Esport Factory in Osnabrück, Germany, from March 29-31.

Below you can find the complete team list for the first UML season:

Up to four matches will be streamed per weekday until the playoffs on the UML's Twitch stream, where Edona "DonaSpock" Musliu will host the show, while Vincent "Zescht" Talmon-Gros and Sinisa "XqzR" Mihajlovic will be commentating on the action.

The prize money breakdown looks as follows:

1. $50,000
2. $25,000
3. $15,000
4. $10,000
5-8. $6,875
9-12. $4,375
13-14. $2,500

It is litigation raised by one person and Unikrn is fighting the frivolous lawsuit and it does not impact their daily operations in anyway. That news hit in August, since then they have been releasing great products and have started UKG betting with licenses that they have acquired Read this: medium.com/@rahulsood/unikrn-has-seen-big-launches-but-today-is-our-biggest-launch-since-2014-9c4a479bb5?_branch_match_id=560357058614908855

As I wrote in the second paragraph, the prize money does not depend on UnikoinGold's valuation.
