EQL 21 league structure changed
Two late signings, FOM & SD2, changed the scene quite alot and made me rethink the league. From what I see now there is a clear line where I can divide the scene into two divisions. The regular season starts today and ends on April 10th.
Instead of one large division I have decided to split the teams into two divisions with 8 and 7 teams respectively.
Division 1 will have 8 teams and the teams will meet once before the playoffs. Division 1 playoffs will be split into A and B with the top 4 clans reaching A and the bottom 4 clans reaching B. All match and map rules from the previous post are still in effect.
Division 2 will have 7 teams and the teams will meet once beafore the playoffs. All teams in division 2 will reach the same playoffs and the top team will qualify directly for semifinal 1. The rest of the teams will meet in the quarterfinals like this: A #2 vs #7, B #3 vs #6 and C #4 vs #5. The winners of A and B will meet in semifinal 2 and the winner of C will proceed to semifinal 1 vs #1. All other match and map rules from the previous post are still in effect.
I have also decided to keep the D99 special team since it means more matches and also because the players in that team should provide a decent challenge for the other non-D99 teams in division 2.
