I'm deciding to release player signups a week early! Signups will be open from December 5 to December 16.

Winter League Overview:
  • There will be 8 teams in Winter League II. Teams will field 8 starters and a minimum of 3 substitutes. There is no maximum team size.
  • We will draft using an auction of 120K credits, with each bid (for a player) starting at 3k.
  • Format Overview is as follows:
    • 8x VGC 2023 Series 1
      • After much polling and discussion amongst the community and managers, we have agreed upon the following format:
      • 6 closed teamsheet slots (with gentlemen's agreement for open) and 2 open teamsheet slots (which CANNOT be closed)
  • There will be no retains in this iteration of VGC PL.

Trying to be serious about VGC this year since I haven't played it since DPP. I am coachable and plan on spending at least an hour or two a day studying VGC content. Worth 3k :v
