Last season my team had a total of 13 FFWs (http://cevo.com/event/cs-globaloffensive/roster/1102084/) This was the worst experience I've ever had with CEVO. Are there any changes this season to mitigate the number of dead teams being matched against us?

Therefore, there isn't a need for a Professional Placement Tournament.

You can do this using the match communication thread on the match page for each specific game. Matches in Intermediate are usually scheduled with about 2 weeks notice, so there is lots of opportunity to reschedule at your convenience.
