To all (few) Combo players of you,
ParagonLeague is not very happy with the current format of the Combo series. At the moment it's over 3 months (12Cups) and it takes very long until you can actually win some money for your effort.
We will change the Combo format next series from 3 months per series to 2 months per series, so 7-8 cups + finals. The prize money will stay the same, so you can actually win a lot more per year;)
I hope you'll appreciate this change and more people find their way into our Combo cups :D
Btw: They're every friday starting at 8PM CET :)
