FALL PLAYOFFS AND BEYOND
With just a few weeks left in the Fall Major regular season, this week’s newsletter is dedicated to a few reminders you’ll want to keep in mind as the season concludes.
Fall Make-up Matches
Week 7 (11/13 - 11/17) will be "Make-up Week". Match days and queue times will be consistent with the regular season. Once a participant has played the full six matches for the season, they will not be able to queue any more. We will begin seeding brackets the following day after each game’s makeup queues. With this in mind, match disputes must be submitted no later than 12 hours after the conclusion of a make-up match.
Key Playoff Information
A full breakdown of our schedule for seeding the playoffs, how many participants qualify, and the playoff match schedule can be found in last week’s newsletter.
