So far, four teams have been invited to join the Minor League: Team Cryptik, Team Allegiance, The Papis, and Burrito Esports. The other spots will be filled with teams teams that rise to the top during a two-week competition set to take place at the end of February.

Each Season 5 split will give teams the opportunity to earn their share of $20,000. At the end of the season, the first-place winners will also receive additional prizes at the Minor League Finals.
