Season 3 Playoffs Round 1: Trainsawlazer
Congratulations to the teams that have made it this far! As the regular season is now over, playoffs start this week. Playoffs this season will be 2 week single elimination. Each team in the playoffs will be scheduled against 2 opponents, if you get 1 loss, you’re out! Wednesday and Saturday are default match days for playoffs, but matches can be played in any reasonable amount of time before.
The playoffs consist of the top 16 teams in both NA and EU, and the top 8 teams from AU.
AU/NZ team's first default match day will be Saturday due to less teams being in playoffs, so expect your first round to be posted on Thursday!
Rosters have been locked, as the postseason has officially started. Once playoffs are over, and we have our winners, we will be distributing medals, so keep an eye out.
Best of luck to all of our playoff teams, and hopefully the matches pan-out well for you!

Rule 7 has been updated-
⦁ If a team does not show up or muster the minimum number of players required (5, as anything less is an unreasonable disadvantage in this format) to play a match by 15 minutes beyond the agreed upon match time, the opposing team may request a forfeit, provided they have the minimum amount of players, and documented proof of having shown up. Additional evidence may be requested by staff, or the match rescheduled/more time granted during review of these types of forfeit requests.
-added a new subsection to rule 7-o.
⦁ Matches in which one team leaves completely while currently in progress will count as that team forfeiting the match entirely (including every point scored). If the match is substantially complete, the other team will be awarded full match points for the match only when the partial score is in the remaining team's favor.
