Season Showdown

This is the season-long competition that you’ve been asking for.  Pick your sport, build your roster, and automatically start competing against similarly skilled players from around the world.  Pro football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and League of Legends esports are all available with even more coming soon.  Collect, compete and win!  It’s just that simple.

Setting Showdown Lineups

Season Showdown is a mode that spans the entire season of whatever sport you’re playing.  In this mode, you’ll compete in weekly events against large groups of fans with similarly ranked rosters.  Compete to win valuable prizes as you battle for the Showdown Cup.

Regular Season Series

During the Regular Season, you’ll compete in a Series of competitions. The length of each Series is one week. Each sport is slightly different in the set-up of their Regular Season Series, as the Series follows the natural gaming set-up of each sport. The most important thing to remember is to level-up and collect your best possible line-up, so that you can compete against the similarly ranked players in your Series.

Playoffs

When the Playoffs begin, you are placed into a Division based on the quality of your roster. Throughout the Playoffs, you’ll have a chance to move up or down the Division ladder based on where you finish on the leaderboard each Playoff round. The Divisions consist of Bronze, Silver, Gold and Ultimate Divisions. Your goal is to reach the highest division possible before the Season Finals.

Season Finals

The Season Finals will align with the final event/series in the sports season (example: World Series). Once the Season Finals begin, your Division is locked and your goal is to earn the highest total score to win.
