Participation medals will be awarded to every division this season, and placement medals will be awarded to Platinum, Gold and Silver this season.

Our maplist will be released as soon as its available. It will be posted here.

New Whitelist
The new whitelist should be available on our site about 1 week prior to the first match. Look for a news post on that.

Team Placements
Team placements are underway. Please be patient, all teams will be placed before the start of the season. Remember that you need 9 people on your roster to be considered for placement! If your team is not yet placed into a skill division please submit a division change request from your leader panel.

Reminder to All New and Returning Teams
After you have been placed into a division and have at least 9 players on your roster, don't forget to set your team to Ready in your leader panel to be scheduled for matches!

Chat Support
We've recently moved our league's Chat Support over from IRC to the Discord application.
If you are logged in as a player or leader, this support option is on your menu. We've also embedded the Discord widget on this page.
For more details please visit this forum thread.

Support Tickets
If you have an issue that requires admin attention, please use our support ticket system. Players who login via Steam can submit a ticket as well as leaders who login with a special leader username/password. The ticket system can be located in the Support Menu once you login as a player or a leader.

Thanks to the nearly 425 teams that took part in Season 18! We are excited to get this season underway.
