The end of season tournament has been scheduled for September 8th, 2018. Time TBD. Please let me know as soon as you can if your team does not plan on participating. As always, we will be playing a double elimination style tournament. The first matches (up until semifinals) will be 2 of 3 to 21 with a cap of 23 or 1 hour in time. If a team wins the first 2 games, then the third game shall not be played. If the 1 hour comes to an end and play is still in progress, then the team with the higher point total shall win. This is in an effort to keep playoffs running smoothly. The semi-finals on shall be best 2 of 3 to 21 with a cap of 23 with no time limit imposed.
Forfeits shall be assigned after the 10-minute mark of a scheduled game to the team who is not present. If both teams are not present, then both teams shall receive a forfeit and move to the losers bracket or be eliminated depending on their record. Exception to this rule is the first game of the day where there will be a 15-minute forfeit window. THE FORFEIT WINDOW COUNTS AGAINST THE OVERALL TIMER ON THE MATCH.
Please let all of your players know that they must have their ID with them to check in before their first game. Check in will start 1 hour before the days first matches and will continue through the start of the second-round matches. If a player is not checked in, they cannot play.
*NEW THIS SEASON*
Because, in the past, we have had a number of problems with people playing on multiple teams throughout the playoffs and delaying games for everyone else we will be imposing a new rule that requires players to sign on for their preferred roster. Each player who is listed on multiple rosters will only be allowed to play on 1 4s team and 1 6s team. Again, this is to help keep time and keep playoffs running smoothly.
This season will be using score sheets to help keep track of scores throughout the day in case there is any question of who won a game. Score sheets will be available at the tournament check-in table throughout the day along with clipboards and pens. Also, we will have surveys available that can be filled out anonymously throughout the day. These surveys can be used by any person involved in the league and does not have to be filled out by a captain. Please feel free to use these surveys to let us know of any ideas you may have, or anything that can be improved.
Please let me know if your team cannot make playoffs, and don't forget to check your scores online to make sure you haven't missed anything!
