Invitational Qualifiers League Play 2: Here's what's coming up. 

After some action-packed exhibition matches, it is time to get back to the Invitational Qualifiers. Week 2 is now on, and League Play 2 starts today. In this phase of the tournament, we have 24 squads competing to secure their ranks in the LAN Finals. Only 10 spots are available, which means only 10 teams out of the 24, will enter straight into the finals from the Invitational Qualifiers. Of these 24 teams, 16 teams are professional contingents, specially invited to participate in ESPL 2. The other 8 squads have emerged from the Open Qualifiers, where teams from all over India registered to participate. 

The ten teams are going to be selected on the basis of their cumulative performance over the two weeks of the Invitational Qualifiers. The past week we saw the 24 squads first competing in the League Play held on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. After a series of 18 matches, the top 16 teams went ahead to play in the Weekly Finals 1. Week 2 is going to follow the same format, starting today, which means this is the final chance the squads get to buck up and secure their spots in the Lan Finale.
