AUS/NZ 4v4 S2 - Playoffs

Yup, it's that time again. We would like to congratulate the Top 4 teams who have made it into the AUS / NZ 4v4 Season 2 Playoffs. As always, the schedule for playoffs can be a bit hectic, but we have done our best to make the schedule easy to follow and spread over the four weeks in a better way for participating teams. If you have not made it to playoffs, we would like to congratulate you and thank you for your efforts this season. All badges will be distributed at the completion of the season.

Playoffs Bracket Terminology

We have changed some Playoffs terminology for this season, these changes can be seen below:

  • Upper Bracket is now Winners Bracket
  • Lower Bracket is now Losers Bracket
  • Grand Finals is separate from Winners & Losers Bracket Finals

While these changes are more heavily geared towards larger Playoffs brackets, we've done this to fall in line with more common terminology used by other tournaments. In the long run this should hopefully ease some confusion.

Schedule

The below schedule is used to illustrate what matches are played each week, with the allowed days also being listed under the image. As you have made it to playoffs, we expect that you ensure you and your team's availability for these days, as matches will be tightly scheduled and closely monitored by each Sub-League's Manager (see our staff list here).

Playable Match Days for each set of matches:

Week 1: Winners Bracket Round 1 (BO1): Monday - Saturday
Week 2: Winners Bracket Round 2(BO3) & Losers Bracket Round 1 (BO1): Monday - Saturday
Week 3: Losers Bracket Round 2 (BO3): Monday - Saturday
Week 4: Winners Bracket Grand Finals (BO3): Monday - Saturday

Asia Highlander S2 Playoffs starting early!

Due to the low team count for Asia Highlander this season, we have decided to start Playoffs earlier to avoid teams having to play each other multiple times. With this in mind, there will be a one week break starting tomorrow (24/06), with Playoffs starting the following week on Monday (01/07).

As this is rather sudden, rosters will remain unlocked up to, and will close on Sunday (30/06). We urge you to use this period to bring on extra substitutes.

We would like to remind Teams and Captains of some key rules specific for Playoffs:

  1. If your team is unable to play Playoffs, please inform us prior to match generation
  2. You can NOT forfeit during Playoffs, as this results in immediate removal from the Playoffs Season
  3. All mercenaries need to be approved by both the other team’s Captain, and a League Administrator

If you have any issues, questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us via Discord Messages or through #admin-support in our Discord.
