Welcome to the CEVO CS:GO Season 11 Playoffs!

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

We're pleased to announce that the CEVO Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Season 11 Playoffs will begin on Monday, December 19th and that as of Friday, December 16th, Playoff brackets will be released for each skill division.

A few quick notes on some postseason rules that you may not be familar with...

  • The regular season standings are determined using CEVO's proprietary CPI ranking system. You can read more about the CPI HERE.
  • For the most part, the match scheduling process will remain the same as the regular season, but match extensions beyond the deadline date listed on the brackets will not be permitted.
  • During the postseason, teams will have 1 hour from the conclusion of the match to file an official dispute. Disputes will no longer be accepted after this 1 hour window has expired.
  • All matches will be set with a default time of 9:00 PM (default timezone of conference), but teams are encouraged to work together to find a time that works for both teams.

From all of us at CEVO, we sincerely hope you had a good time participating in our event and we'd like to wish the best of luck to all of the teams who will be participating in the s10 Playoffs, and to those of you who didn't make the cut this season, we look forward to seeing you again next season and/or in our FREE MVP off-season tournament, the Fall Classic.

VETO Formats:
The Main, Intermediate & Amateur skill divisions will play all matches as a best-of-three (bo3) map series using the current Valve Major's map pool. Maps will be decided inside of the client prior to each match with CEVO's veto system outlined below.

1) Home bans one map
2) Away bans one map
3) Home picks map #1 (side choice to Away)
4) Away picks map #2 (side choice to Home)
5) Map #3 is randomly selected from remaining 3 maps (knife for sides)

NOTE: The FREE division will play their Playoff matches as a best-of-one (bo1) map series with the predetermined maps listed on the brackets.

PERMANENT ROSTER LOCK INFORMATION:
This is a quick reminder that as of Sunday, December 11th at 11:59 PM ET all team rosters in each skill division were permanently locked. During the Playoffs there will be ABSOLUTELY NO roster changes permitted for any team, for any reason.

We enforce the permanent roster lock towards the end of each season to prevent teams from stacking up on the talent from teams that did not qualifiy for the playoffs and to encourage teams to remain together for duration of the season. 

PRIZE CLAIM POLICY:
ALL roster members from each winning team must follow the instructions below to be eligible for payment. Players may begin sending in their earnings forms as soon as the final match in their specific event (ie. CS:GO Season 11) has been completed.

Every "Ready" player on the roster will receive an equal share of the team's prize money, regardless of whether or not they participated in any matches, and only players who have submitted their earnings forms within 30 days of the conclusion of the event will be paid out. 

Players who wish to forfeit their share of the money to the rest of their team can do so during the prize claim process. All prize claims will be processed within 60 days. To submit your winnings request or forfeit your prize, please use the following instructions.

How to claim a prize:
1) Sign in to your account on CEVO.com
2) Click on “My Teams” by hovering over the Settings button
3) Fill out the CEVO Prize Claim Form for each prize that you’d like to claim
4) Fill out and upload the applicable tax form (if claiming over $600 in a given year)
5) Click the “Claim Prize” button

[quote="pixar"]Why does the amateur league start later than all the others?[/quote] We decided to start the Amateur Europe conference a little bit later so that it ended at the same time as the other divisions. [quote="bpBT"]will there be gotv for playoffs?[/quote]Yes, there is GOTV available for all matches on the specific match page for each game.
