  • Tuesday, 16th of June - Start of playoffs
  • Sunday, 12th of July - Grand finals

  • Nations have one week for each playoff round to schedule, the faster everyone schedules their games, the sooner we can finish it off, so i encurage each nation to schedule their games as fast as possible.
  • I decided that there will be no wildcards in the playoffs as that will further extend the entire tournament, one week for each round should be more than enough for nations to schedule their games.
  • Both tournaments are double elimination style, which means, even if you lose once, you can still advance forward via loser brackets.

I wish all the nations a lot of luck and fun in the playoffs and lets see who will lift up golden pocal this time.
GL to all teams.
Will look forward to shoutcasting as many as I can!
Except your actual nation....

i have 2 questions:

1) what advantage has the winner of the upper bracket vs the one that came from the loser bracket? have to win twice?

2) what about the map selection? u can pick one map and u cant repeat it till the finals or the whole tournament?

thanks in advance.
Regarding 1st question, you are right. The nation coming from the lower bracket has to win twice in the Grand Final.

I want to know regarding question 2 as well
thx mate <3
As I have already replied on discord, I will allow each nation to pick their strongest map each round without limitation. Given the fact I have already forced all 6 maps in group stages, I now wish to see nations show their best on their favorite maps and with that have higher chances of proceeding into next round of playoffs.
thanks for the reply :)

Good luck France. :)
