Why we started Z League

We built Z League, the world’s first skill-based tournament platform because we loved watching streamers and pros compete in tournaments, but felt that there were no good options for casual gamers like us. At Z League, everyone can compete in fair, fun and meaningful competitions.

Skill Based Divisions

What makes Z League different is our proprietary ranking algorithm which analyzes all of your stats to sort your team into a division. This means you will only be competing against teams of a similar skill level.

Playing in tournaments can feel hopeless when you know that you’re competing against streamers and pros. The truth is, not everyone gets paid to play for 8 hours a day; And some people are just straight up better than you. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have some healthy competition and even make some cash while you’re at it. Z League's custom ranking algorithm was built by a Harvard trained engineer. Using your historical warzone stats, your team is placed in an evenly matched division, creating an exciting, engaging and fair tournament experience that you can actually win.
