The Premier division has a new scheduling process which seeks to improve a number of historic areas. With Premier attracting widespread attention due to the high-calibre of teams, significant prize money and road to the ESL Pro League we have added a number of additional rules to make the league as easy as possible to follow.
Teams will submit a list of times at the start of the season for us to provide an initial schedule. Teams supply us with dates on which they are not able to play and do not want matches scheduled on. If a team does not submit any times then we will assume they can play all times.
Teams are allowed one wildcard per regular season. Teams may play a wildcard on a match up to 48 hours before the match in order to reschedule it. Teams may play a wildcard by posting on the match page, agreeing on a new date with their opponent and contacting a staff member about the match. Note that teams may not use a wildcard in the final week of the season as those matches can not be rescheduled.
Teams should not use the website or reach out to their opponents to try and reschedule matches. If a game is not played at the scheduled time then it shall be randomly forfeit.
