Spring '11 Playoffs: Better Late Than Canceled!
by Enrish August 15 2011, 2:31 PM
Playoffs have come once again and will be as exciting as ever. After many months of epic battles and stunning upsets, 60 of our finest singles ladder participants and 30 of our best doubles teams are ready and eager to duke it out vs each other to show us all who's really the best.

So without further ado, here are the cold hard facts about how this will get done.

Important pre-words:

It is every players/teams own responsibility to schedule their own matches before the deadline of every round. If you are not able to schedule your match before the set time for chat, then you MUST be in chat to play your match(es). Failure to do so will put you in risk of being disqualified and thus given a loss for the round in question.
In addition to this, it is also the responsibility of ALL ladder players/teams to send the host of his/her playoffs event(Enrish) a PM about the outcome of the match right after it gets done. Even if the host is in the chat with you, you must PM him the results (not chat PM). We need to be certain that nothing is overlooked or forgotten. Failure in sending this PM can result in reprimands as stated above.
Also, please make sure your inbox/outbox always has room. I will be updating everyone after every round (except days where there are two rounds) telling you who you play, when I expect the matches to be done, and more. If you are only in the Doubles playoffs, then the captains will be receiving the PMs.
I, and nobody else is your babysitter. Because of this I, Enrish, will most likely NOT be in the chat rooms most nights. I will try to have at least two staff members in the room at all times, but there shouldn't be a need for it. All you have to do is contact your opponent(s), schedule a time that works for both/all of you, play the set and PM me the results before the deadline. That's four easy steps. You don't only have a good 23 to 95 hours to get the match done, we scheduled a special hour just for you to get it done. If no referees are in the room when the scheduled time is up, your opponent isn't there and he/she didn't PM beforehand, please take a screenshot of the chat so we have proof they weren't there. Be warned though, if we find out you lied about their presence you will be disqualified.

Bracket Images
The bracket images for each playoffs event will be updated daily. In order to see the latest update, you will have to press ctrl+F5 while looking at the brackets. Don't forget this.

Europeans, we know this set schedule doesn't really work for you. Because of this, it is your job to get your matches in as early as possible so you can advance as far as possible.

Recent Season Changes
Every season, we look for ways on how to make the playoffs better for all and I think this time around we found some good ideas.
  1. Volunteered staff members will be monitoring the chats to prevent confusions. As stated about, they should not be needed, but in case of emergency there will, or should be 2-5 people in the chat rooms during the playoffs. They will, or should be the only people in their with bold referee name colors, so memorize the referee badge color so you know who to contact. Please keep in mind though that they are volunteers, and that there is no need to harass them if they weren't there to help you at the time. 
  2. To prevent some chaos and confusion, I have decided to divide up the two events into two different chat rooms. From now on, or at least for this playoffs season, singles playoffs will take place in Tournament Chat 3 from 8pm to 9pm EST and doubles playoffs will take place in Tournament Chat 4 from 9pm to 10pm EST. 
  3. On days there are two rounds that need to be played, there are two deadlines. The first match is expected to be done within thirty minutes of starting time, and the second round should be done within the hour. That would be 8:30pm EST and 9pm EST for singles, and 9:30pm EST and 10pm EST for doubles. If you have not appeared in the chat twenty minutes after the round was scheduled to start, you will be disqualified from that round. People who have opponents who are MIA(Missing In Action) at such time must screenshot it, send it to me through a PM, and inform the chat watcher. For days where there is only one round, if you have not appeared after 30 minutes of the scheduled time, you will be disqualified. Please follow the same procedure. If you are unable to make it, please PM me and your opponent(s) of that day. Falling three rounds behind could still get you disqualified.
  4. This was always suggested behind the scenes, but now it's time to leave it out in the open. If you are a participant in either playoffs please do not change your name until the playoffs are over. It makes it far more difficult to contact you.

Last Season's Changes
As stated above we are always looking for means of improvement. I honestly think last season was our best. We finally got a good schedule and I'm looking forward to a similar one this season. In the end though there were still some problems. Hopefully these new updates will fix that!
  1. You'll notice in the schedule below that we have the first scheduled match set for tomorrow. This will give people some time to get ahead of the game. To ensure that people take advantage of the extra time we offer rewards! 
  2. Card Rewards! 
    1. If you finish Round 1 by Monday, August 15th 11:59PM EST you will receive a pack of cards or a rare of my choice. 
    2. If you finish Round 6 by Sunday, August 21st 11:59PM EST you will receive a pack of cards or a rare of my choice.
  3. You have the option to obtain either one reward or both. This means that even if you don't complete the first round in time you can still complete the sixth round to claim one reward.

Terrible. The fact that ppl werent dq'd shows you probably did this last minute.
Enrish wrote at 3:17 PM on Aug 15, 2011 :
Brackets were made and ready around August 3rd. By time those brackets were made we already disqualified a few people/teams. We then found out Neal went on vacation meaning we could upload the brackets and get things started. We've spent at least six of the past fifteen days discussing certain situations. We went back and forth and we came up with our final decision, then Neal came back and uploaded the brackets. Just because the people you think should be disqualified aren't disqualified doesn't mean we didn't spend any time on this.
