Season 4 Playoffs Round 1
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 double elimination, best of 3. Each team in the playoffs will be scheduled against 2 opponents, if you get 2 losses, 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 default day (which means that for your first game the deadline is Wednesday).
The playoffs consist of the top 16 teams in both NA and EU.
You can start scheduling your matches now so you'll have a little bit of extra time for your first playoffs match. The default times for playoffs matches will be Wednesday and Saturday, 9:30 PM CEST/ EST.
Please read your match notices carefully, this time we're introducing our players to the pick/ban system, we're sure a lot of panners are already familiar with this one, but please, take a look!
As for the South American and Australian teams - don't be upset, you are free from your duties, except for the top 4 teams that will be facing each other in page playoffs on Friday. Take a break for now, you have deserved it.
(Yes, SA and AU playoffs will occur!)
Let it begin!
