Stage 2 is upon us. Thanks to all the teams participating!
Groups are live for Stage 2, which will run until 9/27. Please aim to complete most of your matches by 9/20.
Team Captains, check your email for invites to your Challonge group, and your team pages on the website for your group assignment. Be sure to upload your screenshots and replays to Challonge!
For Stage 2, Gold Groups have 5 teams each, and Silver Groups have 4 teams each. The top 3 teams in each Gold Group will remain in the Gold Groups for Stage 3. The top 2 teams in each Silver Group will remain in the Silver Groups for Stage 3. We are also welcoming 3 new teams into the Silver Groups.
The Home and Away team rules are more complicated than ever before! Please take note of the following:
-In Gold Groups, Home and Away team rules are normal for all odd numbered matches on the Challonge group page (left column), where the first team listed is the Home Team for that match. For all even numbered matches (right column), the rules are reversed, where the second team listed is the Home Team for that match.
-In Silver Groups, the Home and Away team rules are the same as they were in Stage 1. In matches 1-5, the rules are standard, and match 6 of each group has the rules reversed, where the second team listed is the Home Team.
We have extended the grace period for roster changes for the entirety of Stage 2. Free agents and teams, please keep us informed of your roster updates.
