core News team & Head of Anti-Cheat

Before getting into things, we would like to congratulate every team that has made it into the playoffs for this season, along with every team who played this season. Without you, we wouldn't be able to run two divisions for the very first time!

Premier division:

  1. red.pandas
  2. pipes on point
  3. Children in Africa
  4. style points

Main division:

  1. ATECH
  2. Nuclear Ratz
  3. mals simps
  4. kenya fortress

There are some important changes that came into this season regarding playoffs to try to encourage more competition and a shorter overall season runtime. Double Elimination has been retired in favor of Page Playoffs which operates more closely to Single Elimination. For example, the 3rd and 4th seed match up against each other and the loser is eliminated, with the 1st and 2nd seed going head to head with the winner moving straight to the finale. The victor of the 3rd/4th game will go up against the loser of the 1st/2nd game and decide who is brought to the finals. This means the playoffs will run for a total of 3 weeks.

Due to the smaller divisions, each division will only have the top 4 rankings advance to playoffs. To clarify for those who are curious, Valve has renamed our existing badges for us and added Premier badges. These will share the same models, but will have a different name.

There are some playoffs unique rules that come into effect that everyone needs to be aware of:

  • Mercenary usage throughout playoffs needs to be approved by both the captain/s of the opposing team AND a League Administrator. Failure to do so will result in a penalty.
  • There are no forfeits allowed in playoffs brackets.
  • Due to the low match count that comes with smaller playoffs brackets, you will have a staff member assigned to oversee everything regarding your match; from mercenaries, scheduling, disputes and just to answer any general questions you have.

If you have questions regarding anything, or merely need help during playoffs, please contact either your assigned staff member or reach out through #admin-support in our discord.
