Gfinity have announced that the Elite Draft — and attached Elite Series — will not take place until a later date. The Draft was due to be held on Friday but has now been delayed indefinitely.
London-based Gfinity have claimed the Draft is delayed due to an extension of the Gfinity Challenger Series, which is the first part of a three-tier system that culminates in the Elite Series.
Here’s the announcement in full:
“The first season in the Gfinity Challenger Series is now in full swing, with thousands of regular players competing for cash and G-Points across Street Fighter V, CS:GO and Rocket League.
We have a number of exciting announcements brewing and as soon as “the suits” get through the paperwork, we will share all the details with you.
In the meantime, to give all players the best chance of qualifying for the Season 1 Elite Draft, we are extending the Challenger Series. Cups will continue to run with cash prizes and G-points up for grabs, so don’t miss out.
We’ll also be sharing start and end dates for the Gfinity Elite Draft and Elite Series shortly.”
With no new start date mentioned and only five of the competition’s promised eight teams announced, many people are asking questions about Gfinity’s Elite Series after it’s gone somewhat quiet in recent months.
