The second season of the NoxFire League, which aims to promote the Balkan scene, will feature 16 teams, culminating with LAN finals that will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The 16-team online group stage will kick off on February 8 with a round-robin, best-of-one format. Eight invited Balkan teams will be accompanied by six invited squads that hail from other regions of Europe. The last two spots in the league will be up for grabs in the closed qualifiers which will feature eight Balkan sides.

The top four teams from the regular season will be in Sofia, Bulgaria on May 3-5 for the playoffs which will use a double-elimination, best-of-three format, with the exception of the best-of-five grand final.

Windigo, who won the first season to earn $6,000, are among the invited teams and will be joined by three other sides that are currently in the Top 30 of the World Ranking: forZe, AVANGAR, and 3DMAX.
