Weekly Post #PLAYOFFS!

Playoffs are here! Congratulations to all of the teams who have made it this far in the season, now is where the real challenge begins. Both Highlander and 4s will be moving away from set maps and in to best of threes (Bo3). The bracket will be a double elimination bracket with all teams starting in the upper bracket.

In Bo3s the maps will be determined by a pick/ban phase that both participate in. The order of the picking and banning are based on the seeds coming in to the playoffs. Please remember each map (or set) is only one half.
Make sure you have all of the maps played this season ready in case you need to play them, check our map downloads page if you do need any of them.

The top 8 teams for Highlander, and top 4 for 4s, will proceed to the playoffs. We already have a post up that explains the way the Asia Highlander will be played that can be found here, and we also have set up Challonge pages for AUS/NZ Highlander and for 4v4 so you can see what the brackets look like.

The schedule for playoffs will be as follows

AUS/NZ Highlander

Week 1: Round 1
Week 2: Round 2, Losers Round 1
Week 3: Semifinals, Losers Round 2
Week 4: Losers Round 3(Monday-Wednesday), Losers Round 4(Thursday-Saturday)
Week 5: Grand Final

4v4

Week 1: Round 1
Week 2: Semifinals, Losers Round 1
Week 3: Losers Round 2
Week 4: Grand Final

Asia Highlander Season 3 - Playoffs

Yup, it’s that time again. We would like to thank and congratulate the teams who have made it into Asia Highlander Season 3 Playoffs. We would like to apologize for the delay, but we have had to not only resolve website issues, but also figure out the best way to host these Playoffs. This time around, the schedule will be significantly less chaotic than prior seasons due to the low number of teams, and Playoffs will be running for 3 weeks.

Badges for all formats and regions will be distributed at the conclusion of the last match of the season (recorded on the website). We are again testing out an automatic deployment, so we ask for some patience.

Playoffs Bracket Terminology

This will follow the same formatting as last season, with Winners and Losers brackets. Players should keep in mind that Grand Finals are technically separate, and will be treated as such.

Schedule

Below you can find a schedule used to illustrate what matches are played each week, with the allowed days being listed alongside the week / matches. As you have made it to playoffs, we expect that you ensure you and your team are available for a minimum of 3 days of each week. You will also find BO1 or BO3 next to each match, this is used to signify which match is a Best of 1 set scenario, and which are a Best of 3 set scenario.

Week 1: Winners Bracket Round 1 /BO1/ (Wednesday - Sunday)
Week 2: Winners Bracket Finals /BO3/
Week 3: Losers Bracket Round 1 /BO3/ (Wednesday - Sunday)
Week 4: Grand Finals /BO3/ (Wednesday - Sunday)
