As many of you know, we've been hosting Doubles Night throughout this
season to help teams reach the 25 game requirement to get into the
playoffs. Those nights have helped some teams, but because of the
specific time and date of those nights others have been unable to
participate. It's this reason I felt a new event was needed. Doubles
Weekend! Doubles Weekend is generally three Doubles Night
back-to-back-to-back. There will be a set time for Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday, and if you play three matches during the set time of any of the
three days you will be awarded the double dater
This means you must play three matches during the set time in one day.
You can't play one match each day and get the badge. Along with the
double dater badge you will given the chance to get the new weekend warrior
badge. In order to get this badge you must play two matches during the
set time of all three days. Yes, that means two matches Friday, Saturday
AND Sunday. There is currently ten days left in this season and
Doubles Weekend will be occurring the remaining two weekends. Please message me with a link of your team's ladder profile to get the badges.
The first Doubles Weekend will be happening this weekend, Nov. 11 to Nov. 13. The set times are:
Friday 4pm EST to 1am EST
Saturday 1pm EST to 2am EST
Sunday 1pm EST to 11pm EST
the set times are so long there will be no designated host. Staff
members are welcome to go into the chat and do some trivia or any other
side event during the set time if they'd like. Since Doubles Weekend
will be taking up the remaining weekends of this season Doubles Night
will now be hosted sometime during the week. Hopefully we can host
another night or two.
As many of you should remember, and as
referenced to above, there is a match requirement to get into the
playoffs. The match requirement for singles is currently set to 30. With
more than 2/3rds of the top 60 meeting the requirement and so many
within five matches of meeting it I will not be changing the requirement
for singles. If you plan on sneaking into the top 60 last second I
suggest you leave yourself enough time to meet the requirement.
doubles requirement is currently set to 25 matches, as stated above. It
seems many teams are having trouble meeting that requirement, so I'm
going to go ahead and lower the requirement to 20. It's certainly not
that big of a difference, but many teams aren't far from meeting the
requirement and there's still 10 days left in the season. If I feel too
many teams will be held back because of the requirement I will lower it
again, but not by much. If I do decide to change it I'll say something
next week. Meanwhile keep doing your best!
