We hope your fall esports seasons are off to a great start! This week, we have a few announcements and reminders to help your team have the best experience possible.
First, please remember that queuing for a match demonstrates both readiness and intent to play. Each student in the queue is expected to be able to connect and play their match within 10-15 minutes. If your students were not able to queue last week, don’t forget that they can use a make-up queue during week 7!
If you need assistance at any time, please contact our support team through the “Chat” bubble at the bottom of every page on our website and platform. Do not mark a match as a forfeit without contacting support first.

All coaches are encouraged to reference the rulebook, as it was updated on September 25th. Matches are best of 3 circuits, and smart steering should be disabled.
Make-up Matches? Playoff Schedule?
You asked, we’ve delivered. Make-up windows are changing! "Week 7" (11/13 - 11/17) will be "Make-up Week". Make-up days and queue times will be consistent with the regular season. You can find the Major playoff schedule on the Tournament Overview on our Help Site. Please note, the number of playoff qualifiers is subject to change based on participation within each game.
