   Kitt(eh)   - 7/11/2024

Season 15 Playoff information


In this article, you will find playoff information on S15 6v6 playoff format and schedule for every division.


Sustainability & Prize Pool


To shore up the league’s future sustainability prize money will be awarded to the top 4 teams in each division. Going forward, this cost-saving measure will ensure the league can continue to persist as long as players continue to sign up, paid or not.

Specifically, fees not awarded in prize pools will be directed toward LANs, infrastructure costs, and offsetting the overhead expenses that have weighed down the league financially for some time.

Demo Requests During Playoffs


Due to the competitive nature of playoffs, punishments for failed POV demo requests are harsher . Any missed demo request during playoffs will immediately result in a ban instead of a warning for a first offense. Furthermore, all players participating in a division grand final must submit their demos.

Players have the responsibility to double-check their demo files to make sure they are the correct ones before submitting them to an admin. Submitting an incorrect demo will be considered a fraud attempt and will receive an additional penalty.

Should you need to provide a demo please upload it to Google Drive, Discord, OneDrive, Dropbox, Mega, demos.tf, or MediaFire. Other methods will be ignored.
