Thu, Sep 20, 2018 by snowblindfrog

Week 2 Fixtures are now live! Week 2 scheduling was a hybrid of Swiss Ranking + SR. 

Week 2 Map Pool: Eichenwalde / Horizon LC / Junkertown (Draw breaker for each map: Lijang Tower)
Each map won = 1 match point
Possible match scores: 2-0 or 2-1

Reminders to team leaders:

  1. Maplist: Each week teams will have 3 maps to pick from to play each week.
    • Home Team picks the first map and whether they want to Attack or Defend first.
    • Away Team picks the second map, alternate who attacks first.
    • If either map ends in a draw, a single overtime round on Lijang Tower will be played to decide who won the map.
    • If the scores are tied 1-1 after the first 2 maps, then proceed to the remaining map from the weekly pool.
      • Example Week 1 match:
        - Home team chooses Junkertown and wins the map, they receive 1 match point.
        - Away team chooses Eichenwalde and the map draws with both teams unable to unlock the cart. Teams proceed to Lijang Tower to break the draw on Eichenwalde and Away team wins earning 1 match point. Now scores are tied 1-1.
        - Match proceeds to Horizon LC where Home team wins earning another match point. Home team wins the match 2-1.
  2. Pausing: Each team is allowed 1 pause per match in the event that a player drops. This pause should not last longer than 5 minutes. Do not abuse this rule. Doing so might result in your team losing the map or match.
  3. Match Comms: Team Leaders are REQUIRED to use Match Comms every week! You should use them to coordinate the date/time to play the match and any possible unrostered players needed for the match. Forfeit match results will not be accepted if Match Comms were not used! Failure to use Match Comms may also result in an unfavorable outcome for your team in the event that a dispute arises from your match! For more information on how to use Match Comms please check out the #using-match-comms room in our Discord. 
    • Team Leaders can access the Match Comms from 2 locations:
