CoD4 CC: Playoffs
After three weeks of playing groupstage matches with small delays and a few problems, we are now finally ready to move on to playoffs.

Eight teams will proceed from groupstage to playoffs - two from each group. They have been paired with teams from other groups based on their ranking to fight for that all important number one country championship position.

Round 1
Third Place


When the time does actually come to play the matches, there is not much to say about the rules except that Best-Of-Three VETO will be played in the playoffs.

How does BO3 veto work:
Knife on any map
Loser of knife eliminates one map
Winner of knife eliminates one map
Loser of knife chooses one map
Winner of knife chooses one map
Remaining map is the decider map if needed

In case of a draw, you have to continue playing the same map on mr3 until you have a winner. The acceptable results at the end of the match are 0-2, 1-2, 2-2, 2-1 and 2-0.

The use of the ESL Wire Anti-Cheat program is mandatory for all participants within the main round, failing to do so will result in necessary action being taken.

#1: gogo Team GERMANY!
The match between Croatia and Serbia should be checked before the playoffs start. There is reason to believe that the match was played in an unfair way. There were 2 players playing which were/are not in the team of croatia AND one of the players has no registered cod4 gameaccount.

Look it up yourselves:

I hope this is considered before the palyoffs start. My supportticket concerning this was never processed.
It just seems unfair to teams who play according the rules.
There was no official protest opened by team Serbia to complain about the match, therefore no actions are really necessary. And if there was, there would have to be a rematch. Knowing both sides, I can honestly tell you the result would be absolutely the same ;)
interresting so things like no gameaccount and ringing/faking are allowed if they are not reavealed by the teams playing. You are right its not that any other teams might be affected by such things. *beware sarcasm*

I doubt the outcome would be the same if it was played correctly. Convince me by setting up a rematch between Croatia and Serbia! Oh and i ofcourse want a different admin opinion about this. No offense ment but your are the croatian team captain ;-)

There won't be any rematch or changes in playoffs, so don't dwell on it.
