EMS IX FIFA11: The Playoffs!
After the groupstage it's the time to start the last phase of this competition. So we'd like to announce the 12 players who will meet with each other in the play-off. Only a few weeks and we'll know who the best. Let's see the details.

There are 3 players with the same points in the Group 'A' but from among them only 2 players may get into the play-off so we have to check their matches as a "mini-league".

poldi10 vs. Naxro [13:7]
poldi10 vs. Cold-Blood [5:0]
Cold-Blood vs. Naxro [7:6]

Based on these results the final order will be the following:
2. poldi10, 3. Cold-Blood, 4. Naxro

Qualified players from the Group 'A':

1. Praii
2. poldi10
3. Cold-Blood

Qualified players from the Group 'B':

1. ReDw1nG
2. Janni
3. Blafkipje

Qualified players from the Group 'C':

The system

The default date on every playweek is Monday, 20:00CET but the current match can be played anytime on the playweek from Monday to Sunday.

The playoffs has been created with 12 contestants in a single elimination bracket. The top 3 contestants from each group qualified themselves into the playoffs. The group winners have been seeded 1 to 4, the group 2nd places 5-8 and third places 9-12. This means in the first round the group winners won't play. Only the 2nd and 3rd places will play against each other. The contestants have been seeded so that two contestants from the same group can only meet in the semi-final.


You have to start your all matches with ESL Wire and LagInspect according to the Ladder rule.
