Sun, Oct 29, 2017 by snowblindfrog

Important info on playoffs:

We have done away with the Map Draft process for playoffs. See new Rule 7.2 below.
NA Steel has been changed to 16 team single elimination bracket and the Finals match has been moved to Saturday Nov 18th to accommodate. 
The full calendar and playoff brackets can be found here.


(7.2) Map selection

  • Maps for playoff matches will be chosen by each team from the map pool used during the regular season and will be played in a Best of 3 series.
    • Map 1: Home team choice
    • Map 2: Away team choice
    • Drawbreaker map (Control map played with Score to Win = 1): Away team choice
      • This is only used in the event that any map ends in a draw.
    • Tie breaker map = Home team choice
  • Each map won = 1 match point. Possible scores are: 2-0 or 2-1.


- Matches per week: Teams will play 1 match per week in a Single Elimination bracket.
- Default day and time:  Same as regular season.
- Match deadline: Matches must be turned in by Sunday at 11:59pm EST each week.

As always, you can play your match on an off-night if you have written agreement from your opponent posted in the Match Comm panel, but matches MUST be played by the deadlines above!
