Wow! Is all I can say about these last few weeks. We've seen teams we thought would advance and we've seen quite a few upsets. It just proves to show that anything can happen during these playoffs. We're soldiering on to the FINAL week of Season 3.
The format for the bronze matches will be a best of 5 rounds match. The format for the finals will be a best of 7 rounds match. The higher seeded team has earned the right to choose side (marines or aliens) or map first. Normal best of x rounds procedures apply afterward. If opponents finished in the same place in their groupings, a coinflip with occur and winner of that coinflip chooses side or map first.
Default time for the finals and bronze matches will be on Saturday, November 23rd @ 1200 PST / 1500 EST / 2100 CET / Sunday, November 24th @ 600 AEST. You'll have until Sunday, November 24th to complete your matches. Please schedule as soon as possible and plan accordingly, so you're able to play your match in a timely manner.
Although it's encouraged that you use Steam or whatever is the easiest to contact your opponents, PLEASE LEAVE NOTES IN THE MATCH PAGES of your record of contact, especially with confirmed times for matches.
