Yup, it’s that time again. We would like to thank and congratulate the teams who have made it into Asia Highlander Season 3 Playoffs. We would like to apologize for the delay, but we have had to not only resolve website issues, but also figure out the best way to host these Playoffs. This time around, the schedule will be significantly less chaotic than prior seasons due to the low number of teams, and Playoffs will be running for 3 weeks.
Badges for all formats and regions will be distributed at the conclusion of the last match of the season (recorded on the website). We are again testing out an automatic deployment, so we ask for some patience.
Playoffs Bracket Terminology
This will follow the same formatting as last season, with Winners and Losers brackets. Players should keep in mind that Grand Finals are technically separate, and will be treated as such.
Below you can find a schedule used to illustrate what matches are played each week, with the allowed days being listed alongside the week / matches. As you have made it to playoffs, we expect that you ensure you and your team are available for a minimum of 3 days of each week. You will also find BO1 or BO3 next to each match, this is used to signify which match is a Best of 1 set scenario, and which are a Best of 3 set scenario.
Week 1: Winners Bracket Round 1 /BO1/ (Wednesday - Sunday)
Week 2: Winners Bracket Finals /BO3/
