The Age of Mythology Deathmatch community has crowd-funded an entire League on Meta Plays, and we are proud to assist in hosting.
The main sponsors of Deathmatch League Season 2 are @Phenomenonand @GanG. Phenomenon will be managing these events, as well. Upon seeing their generous contribution, we have added $100 to the fold, as well as a custom banner and medals for the League Finale.
Please note that unlike the Meta Plays Supremacy Season, this League is played on Age of Mythology: Extended Edition.

MEDALS FOR ALL (NOT REALLY)
As mentioned before, the Finale will come with custom medals - credit to @PF2K have a look here:
(It's an inside joke in the DM community - the "Hydra's heads being the dominant players - naturally, we let the donators choose what they wanted to see!)
WHERE TO WATCH
Just to reiterate: this is a community league hosted ON Meta Plays, but not one hosted BY Meta Plays.
As such, community streamers will be picking up the matches they can cover as and when.
The Tournaments themselves are not one day events, so the best way to stay in the loop is to join the DM Discord, as well as to keep an eye on the brackets. Streamed games will be marked with times and have a Twitch icon over them linking to the stream, as usual.
FEEL FREE TO PLAY
Deathmatch may be intimidatingly fast and different, but the community is a very friendly one. DM players are always super eager to help someone new learn the ropes. Please don't hesitate to join, especially if you are a strong supremacy player looking to improve in the multitasking and late game departments!
It will also offer you a very different experience from Supremacy, not just because of the mode itself, but also because these events are played on the DM Patch 2021 - which just got updated with some minor tweaks specifically for this league.
