The APL is a team based, round robin tournament using VGC rules being held exclusively for those living in Australia. The tournament will be held over 8 weeks and will feature 6 teams, managed by 6 of Australia’s best VGC players. Over those 8 weeks, we will see 5 round weeks, a mid season break, and two weeks of playoffs. Teams will be picked through a drafting process where Managers will bid for players. Players can sign up to be included in the draft by clicking the button below.
We have 6 teams, and 6 of Australia’s best VGC players leading them:
Managers start with 90k and can draft themselves for 15k. Base price of a player is 3k, and bidding increments are 0.5k.
During the draft each manager will take it in turns to nominate players who signed up, and then managers will bid on said player. If no one bids then the player goes to the manager who nominated the player for the base price.
Each team must have a minimum of 6 players, with no maximum.

Players of each team can be traded at any time, with ‘2 for 1 player’ deals and ‘1 player + money for 1 player’ deals also being allowed. During mid season break players can be sold back for half of their original drafting price. Managers may purchase new players for their team from a Midseason draft, which will have new sign ups closer to the date. Players sold can be bought by other teams.
Players from the winning team are automatically eligible for the EXP Invitational, though they must have played a minimum of 3 rounds for that team.
