Season 14 is starting NOW, and you have until November 19th, Monday to play the first match.
Scheduling is being strictly enforced.
Due to this post being put up late there will be an additional 3 day grace period to play matches for weeks one and two.
Rules for Season/how to play your matches:
a) On each week matches are: rank1 plays rank2, rank3 vs rank4, etc.
b) New teams can join every monday (till 3 december 2018) at the bottom rank with 1 point
c) less than the bottom scored team that played last week.
If its a uneven team-count the last team thats not playing will get their score adjusted to have exactly 1 more point then the team with the lowest points that has been playing till monday. (like this the team that sits plays for sure in the next week)
d) You get each 2 more points on everything expect the seeding points (they increase by 1) of the previous match to make catching up easier.
1) Confirm your match time on the match page. Also, please type in your teams map choice and server choice on the match page. (Lower Seeded Team picks first server and side)
2) Each player can only play twice in the same week. This includes any matches+mercing/substituting.
3) In case both teams don't find a match-time that they can agree on, the team with more match time suggestions wins. If no effort was made by both teams, the lower ranked team wins.
4) Each match will consist of 4 rounds total. 2 rounds on one server, then 2 round on another server. (unless both teams agree to same server).
Unplayed Matches with no/similar scheduling effort will have the lower ranked team winning
How the Scoring for the Season Works:
You receive points for playing each week's match and for each round you win.
You will receive less points if you don't play a match/forfeit.
On a uneven Teamcount the last team will get their score adjusted to next week to have 1 more point then the last team that played previous week.
Each Week PlayingPoints and RoundwinPoints values below increase by 2 Point to make it more important to play till the end.
Seeding Team Points:
So to prevent two teams playing each other endlessly, we have devised each team to be worth a certain amount of points.
Let's say the Rank 1 Team plays the Rank 2 Team resulting in a 2:2 split. Then the Rank 3 Team plays the Rank 4 Team, scoring 4:0.
The next week, the Rank 1 and 2 team will again play each other.
Ranking will only change if two teams locked in their rank achieve a score of 3:1 or higher. Each Team earns Points based on the Ranking of the enemy Team, allowing teams who have a lower rank to gain more points if they beat a higher seeded team.
If the Rank 2 Team plays the Rank 1 Team, they will earn 38 points on top of the points awarded for each round won.
The Rank 1 Team will earn 36 points on top of the points awarded for each round won.
Week 1 Scoring:
Earn 2 points if you play the match. (The Forfeiting Team gets 1 Points instead of 2)
Earn 2 points for each Roundwin.
Earn the Seeding Team Points of your enemy added to the total score.
You have until November 19th to play Week's 1 match. (Monday)
For Example: Rank 1 Team plays the Rank 2 Team and ties with a score of 2:2:
2 Points for playing + 4 Points for 2 Roundwins + The Seeding Team Points (Rank 2 Team has 38) = 44 Points awarded to the Rank 1 Team
2 Points for playing + 4 Points for 2 Roundwins + The Seeding Team Points (Rank 1 Team has 40) = 42 Points awarded to the Rank 2 Team
As each week progresses, you earn 2 additional points for each round won. So the first week you earn 2, the second week you earn 4, the third week you earn 6.
Playoffs will be determined and will be explained in a future post.
*Comp Mod may be updated through the regular season as we want to make sure the game is playing well. The goal is to get comp mod ready for the playoffs. So we will cut off any updates to comp mod a week before the playoffs unless there is an update to vanilla that changes something.
