As indicated in the previous post, three Division 3 teams have been disqualified due to continued ignorance of rules and warnings even when given excessive leniency. But moving on, what an exciting time for Division 3 teams!
You've entered your first season of AsiaFortress Cup,
and it just so happens that the rest of your division have decided to grant you a free ticket to the playoffs! What a time to be alive. Screw the Gun Mettle ticket, this is where the real money is made!
So what happens now?
The match between Backcappers and Beyond Velocity can still be played this Saturday as it can affect Playoff seedings. However, if both teams agree to immediately proceed with Playoffs instead, seeding will take the current standings as is.
But Sir Shounio what does the Playoffs mean?
The Playoffs follow the Round Robin Group Stages because it takes the top 4 from the previous phase and pits them against each other to find who slots into the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placings.
Playoff matches are also different because teams are actually allowed to pick what maps to play! and you called this a dictatorship... That means you'll never have to play Logjam ever again!
One more thing to note is that the Playoffs DO NOT permit Mercenaries. Whether the Regular Season match this Saturday is played or not, Division 3 Playoffs will start NEXT WEEK 27th of July, so if you wish to add more players or substitutes to your team, the rest of this week is your only chance.
Also since they're Playoff Matches, please try not to play at the same time as each other so we can actually cast them.
That's it! Good Luck to you aspiring young nerds in Division 3 - and may the demos upload smoothly!
