A league system is different from the ladder format though, so allow me to explain the system for those who are not familiar with it yet.
After having signed up, all competitors are being placed into several groups. Each player has to play against all other players in their group. If you win a match against a player, you get points. If you win enough matches and end near the top of your group, you advance to the playoffs.
Once you reach the playoffs all players will be organized into brackets. From now on, if you’re knocked out, you’re out of the league.

Be fast to sign up because this will fill up very quickly, me thinks!
If you sign up you’ll be asked to “add a gameaccount” first. You can do this by going to your profile (top left “My Profile”), then on the menu on the left sidebar “Gameaccounts”. Obviously you pick Quake Live and type in your ingame nickname.
