- Format: Major Ladder and Single-elimination Playoff
- Weekly schedule: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 20:00 CEST

Promotions and Demotions
Our new system promotes further team development, with a focus on providing a platform to train for established teams, as well as prize winnings. At the same time, the system is simple for new teams and does not force a big time commitment.
Demotion: At the end of every matchweek, teams ranked 16th and lower will be removed from the league and lose their special accounts. They will have the opportunity to join and participate 2 weeks later.
Promotion: The top 5 teams in Go4WoT get promoted to Silver Series every week (not including Silver Series teams or the demoted teams from the previous week)
Effective immediately, players from the WGL Gold Series are not allowed to play in Go4WoT, regardless of whether or not they are representing the same team.
Teams that are in Silver Series can continue playing in Go4WoT, with no restrictions.
A consistent, balanced and intuitive ruleset is vital for a league to run smoothly. All the changes below are made with that idea in mind.
- Players banned on the ESL Play platform are forbidden from playing in WGL Silver Series.
- Teams can now add or remove players freely during the season as long as they do not remove 50% or more of the initial roster (based on the roster at the start of the season)
- Special battles will now start at 20:00, instead of 15 minutes earlier
- Teams will now have to participate in the Playoffs at the end of the season in order to qualify for the Gold Series or for the Qualifier.
