#15 - Group Stage Finished2016-12-06 14:10 | claire
We cheered at the triumphs of friends and heroes and we cried at their defeats. It's time to fondly say farewell to the craziness of group stage and welcome the more focused, serious, and punctual nature of playoffs.

The top four players from each group will proceed to the playoffs for their division. I thought long and hard about doing a single-elimination, but in the end decided on a double-elimination.

As matches are created, a deadline will be listed in the description. Typically these deadlines will be 1 week from the time the match is created. There are always exceptions and matches around the holidays will have more time. I'm very sorry to add pressure to the matches, but without strict deadlines the season will spiral out of control like it has in previous seasons. I'm expecting walkovers in some very important matches, which makes me very sad.
To all players who do not move forward to playoffs, thank you for participating and playing your games; I hope you sign up next season.

By the way, EDL playoffs are totally different animal emo
If admins wont be as hard as in group stage it could drag for a long time.

K1ra, you should start working on this now.
Sadly we saw what happened to All-Star game.
If you want to avoid similar fiasco as this or Edge league then you should already start preparing. Talking to players, checking who is willing to play, attracting those who hesitate.
Get admin for 2x2, review rules.
8 teams is a lot. If scheduling a duel takes that much effort for players to arrange, imagine when there are 4 that play at the same time.
Good luck

alexj and I we gotta open sighnups for 2x2 in the middle of January. Edl should be almost done till that moment.
So we planning to start 2x2 from February the 1st.

I do not expect many teams (at least 8 would be great). So we can try to complete 2x2 in 2 months maximum (or even faster).

We'll do the official announce after NY.

I would like to be concentraded on 2x2 league. But in case all other players are ok, I would support it as well.

Anyway myr is out so it looks impossible at the moment.

@k1ra you and your "2x2 league members" WST, IsBjorn, AlexJ, Blaizz, should be "bitchslaped" because you wasted ton of time on 2x2 instead 1x1 games during EDL emo

@claire Not bad idea at all

- kiru is still "horny"
- kinex, numavezi was busy with work
- Ivers was Ill
- warrior trying to get in shape
- stiqi for sure is not satisfied with place
- pretty sure Keizer would like to frag more

Myrmidon should get consolation prize Miss Congeniality for effort in this season emo

No, Claire.

St1gy, I "might" write a predictions article if I'm in the mood, but after all the shit I've done or tried to do for the q2scene this year, and the poor treatment I've been recieving, I'm really not interested in doing anything else.

Since there are 8 players in both Div1A and B are you guys interested in doing upper and lower playoffs for Div1? Top 4 going to upper, bottom 4 going to lower.

What do you think? emo

I signed up because of wst. I've been told him that I shall do it for community. And I did it.
But in the middle of groupd stage I got the appetite for games emo
So damn I hadn't enough time to get the good shape.

Anyway GL to everyone, cu in the middle of January for 2x2 league!!!

Let the force be with you!

Double elemination always more interesting than single. It give one more oportunity to players to contend for titles.

Also i think more interesting point system in group stage is 1 map win = 1 point.

We will sign clair, dont doubt about it. Thanks for season. Will watch playoffs for sure. There is analysis and predict article by myr? emo
GL all in playoffs guys. Next time i'll try betteremo

deadlines are quite ok if the're no exclusions. being waiting for the playoffs grid!
p.s. div1 is a competition of being a better player, div3 is a competition of being aware that the league has started
p.p.s 'I?m expecting' thing to be fixed, symbols missing stuff again
