Hello everyone! And let's look what we have after half a season! I would like to note the outstanding and perhaps unprecedented organization so far, 29 of 30 matches full complete, well done guys keep it up and thanks for good orga! Also much interesting, various and original teams/players really doing this season! But go look what we have in standings right now - in top it's certain lead of uMaD who wants make history and cSc which wants go higher than Top 3! Nearly settle down two very different teams IFS and DuSt which seems always ready to give massive fire for any opponent. Next follow big group of teams who have a good chances for play-off and battle for it promise to be very tense. And already on this week we will see very important match in this case between novices from VOGO and old participants SQK. In buttom of ranks we also can see good teams which doing nice performance sometimes and who knows may be in second part of season they can make some surprises! Anyway want wish all teams good luck in this week and nice games! Cya!
UPDATE: very sorry guys - Maelstrom was revert too, re-download pls!
UPDATE: big ask for all teams, before tomorrow wars - re-download Alley Way map (revert for last patch) for correctly work. Thanks to team VOGO and sorry for that fail, we fix that for all maps.
Welcome to 13 season, finally qualification not work how we want, but it was predictable. So let's move directly to the group stage, how you can see it's 1 group with 12 teams, long distance there and we hope everyone will be able to master this journey (almost 3 months). Especially wanna pay attention on rules, to minimize the number of misunderstandings and constantly arising questions on one or another cases. At first rule of postpones is changed a bit, now teams have only 2 weeks to finish it, be attention please in this one. Also lovely question is "how many teams going play-off?" - in play-off going top 6 teams. In play-off we will switch for old wc3l system - with two 2on2's so be ready too. New teams should know about transfer ban for new players who must miss first match after the joining. Well every team has 3 Wild Cards for group stage and 1 for play-off, so you can use it in an extreme situation. Seems we make small review here about popular positions, but if you still have a questions - ask it in comments.
And finally for you attantion schedule of 1st play week with many interesting matches! Let's get started!
UPDATE: due to OCG team refusal to play, we get 12 teams, so season starts immediately at this sunday! Schedule coming soon, stay tuned!
Well! Qualification will continue this week, but we already can congratulate teams which gurantee will be in season 13 after 1/4 qualifier:
As you can see, the fourth team is missing here, it's because complete irresponsibility of both teams ( LUL and OCG), who did not even bother to deliver results... So, they must re-game their match at 31 July 19-00 CEST (by mutual agreement, the date can be postponed but not later than Saturday, August 3). I hope we can to resolve the situation and it won't happen again.
