    How come Clutch gaming wasn't part of the draft?

    NBA 2K League 2018: COMPETITION STRUCTURE
    • The 15-week regular season will begin on May 1, comprising 12 weeks of matchups and three weeks of tournaments.
    • All 17 teams will compete in a minimum of 19 games, including 14 regular-season games and three additional tournaments.
    • Tournament results will not count toward a team's 14-game regular-season record, but will serve as a tiebreaker for the postseason.
    • Playoff seeding will be determined by regular-season standings.
    • Throughout the season, teams will be competing for $1 million prize money across the three tournaments and playoffs.
    • Weekly matchups will take place on Fridays and Saturdays with staggered game windows to provide convenient viewing for both domestic and international audiences.
    • The tip-off tournament will feature pool play, with four groups competing over five days. The top two teams in each group will advance to the single-elimination playoff rounds. The tip-off tournament will have a prize pool of $100,000.

      Seeding for the other two in-season tournaments will be determined by a team’s record during the four weeks of regular-season games that precede each tournament. These single-elimination tournaments will include a play-in game between the 16th and 17th seeds. Each of these tournaments will feature a prize pool of $150,000. The final tournament will also award a playoff spot to the winner.
    • The playoffs will begin on Aug. 17 and run for two weeks. The seven teams with the best regular-season records and the winner of the final tournament are guaranteed playoff spots. If the tournament winner has one of the league’s top eight records, then the top eight teams will make the playoffs.

      The quarterfinals will be single-elimination play. The semifinals and NBA 2K League Finals will each be best-of-three.

      The playoff prize pool will be $600,000, with the NBA 2K League champion receiving $300,000 from the pool.

    I watch some of the games on Twitch. It looks exciting and competitive, some players were even trash-talking against each other. Damn, I wish Daryl Morey's Clutch Gaming team should be added to the 2K League.

    They chose to make a LoL team and not be involved in this. Presumably because the manager is more familiar with LoL and not OW or 2K...which is really unfortunate.

    Also could be that, being 'analytics guys,' he and Morey would rather prefer to choose from the leagues that have a few years of history and vast data resources on their belt, leaving out 2K that's just about to be inaugurated this year. My guess is that the possibility of the future CG 2K may depend on how successful the 2K league turns out to be at least for a year or two.

    This will make the NBA more more than the WNBA does. You can already see it coming.

    NBA 2K League Qualifier Information
    October 24, 2018

    The first stage of qualifying for the 2019 NBA 2K League Draft will begin Friday, November 2 at 12 p.m. ET and will run through Monday, November 26 at 6 p.m. ET.

    Components:
    To measure commitment and skill, each player will be required to win 100 games in NBA 2K19’s Pro-Am mode or at the Jordan Rec Center, and win at least 50 percent of their games, in order to advance in the process.

    For example:
    • If a player competes in 300 games, they must win 150 of their games to achieve a 50% winning percentage in order to qualify.
    • If a player wins 100 games, but competes in more than 200, they will not qualify.
    • If a player does not complete a game or quits while a game is in-progress, that will count as a loss.
    Each participant must also complete an online application by Nov. 26. The online application will be available on NBA2KLeague.com in November.
    • Online applications will include questions on general applicant information, gaming background, basketball IQ, NBA 2K IQ, and an audio submission about why the applicant wants to be drafted into the NBA 2K League.

    Additional Information:
    The NBA 2K League Qualifier is open to anyone around the world who has a copy of NBA 2K19 (PlayStation 4 or Xbox One), an internet connection, and is 18 or older by the time the Qualifier starts.
    • Winning more than 100 games will not increase a player’s standing.
    • Pro-Am competition is a 5-on-5 format, with all participants using their existing MyPlayer.
    • During the Qualifier, an NBA 2K League mode will exist on the main menu of NBA 2K19 for players to enter.
    • Players can participate in games in Team Pro-Am or at the Jordan Rec Center in NBA 2K19.
    • The 102 players who participated in season one do not need to participate in the Qualifier.
    Following the NBA 2K League Combine in December, the best players will be identified and made eligible for the 2019 NBA 2K League Draft.

    The NBA 2K League also plans to conduct one or more tournaments outside of North America to identify additional international players for the 2019 draft pool.
