IGN announced their third edition of the IPL Team Arena Challenge. This massive event will see the top teams of Starcraft 2 battle it out for a $20,000 prize pool. Containing nearly every top team imaginable this event will truly show which team has the best players for this format.

This tournament is a double-elimination bo9 Winners Format. Each match will consist of five players from each team. Teams choose their first player blind, then the winner of the first game stays on to play a new player from the losing team. The winner of each game stays on until all five players from the opposing team have been defeated. This can result in a player sweeping the other team in an all-kill but it can also mean that a player can make a huge comeback after being behind 0-4 and still win it for his team, called a reverse all-kill.
