Welcome to the Gfinity CS:GO Spring Series 2018 Playoffs!

Friday, September 7th, 2018

We're pleased to announce that the Gfinity CS:GO Spring Series 2018 Playoffs will begin on Sunday, September 16th, 2018. We've extended the absolute final date to play your matches until Tuesday, September 11th, 2018 at 11:59 PM ET, due to some unforeseen issues with our plugin that were introduced by a recent game update.

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

  • The regular season standings were 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 24 hours from the conclusion of the match to file an official dispute. Disputes will no longer be accepted after this 24 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 Gfinity and 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 Gfinity CS:GO Spring Series 2018 Playoffs!

Playoff Details & Moveup/Movedown Criteria:
As previously announced here, we've released the moveup/movedown criteria heading into the next season.

VETO Formats:
The Main, Intermediate, and 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) The home team (team with the better Playoff seed) will act as Team A
2) Team A bans one map.
3) Team B bans one map.
4) Team A picks map #1 (side choice to Team B)
5) Team B picks map #2 (side choice to Team A)
6) Team B bans one map.
7) Team A picks map #3 out of the two that remain (side choice to Team B).
