Arena Playoff FAQ



Arena Playoff FAQ


When do Playoffs take place?
  • Playoffs take place at the end of each Season.

How long is a Season?
  • The Winter Season runs from December 31st until March 31st.
  • The Spring Season runs from March 31st until June 30th.
  • The Summer Season runs from June 30th until September 30th.
  • The Fall Season runs from September 30th until December 31st

How do I know if there are playoffs for the ladder I am playing on?
  • We post a News Article in advance indicating which Games and Ladders we are running playoffs on. Games can be added to that list if the activity supports us holding a playoff tournament.
  • Example News Article from the Summer 2014 Playoffs

How do I qualify for Playoffs?
  • There are several general requirements that must be met. All of them are listed below.
    • Must create your team before the roster lock period.
    • Must play a minimum of 3 matches during the roster lock period.
    • Cannot override the roster lock for any reason.
    • Must have the minimum required players on their roster during the roster lock period. This varies based on the ladder (i.e doubles, team, singles).
    • Team must rank high enough on the season leader-boards to be seeded into the bracket.

How will I know if I am seeded into the playoff bracket?
  • Staff will send a private messages, pop-up, and email to the teams that are seeded into a playoff bracket.
  • The playoff bracket can also be viewed by going to that ladder's leader-board page and clicking on the season you wish to view. From there, click on the Playoff Bracket Tab.
  • Picture One | Picture Two

How will I know what time I have to play my playoff match?
  • The schedule for playoffs will be listed in a News Article, as mentioned previous. All playoff brackets will be completed on the same day they start.
  • Also, after the bracket is seeded, the first round date and time will be visible on the playoff page for that ladder.

The previous season is over and I am in playoffs, can I change my gamertag?
  • We highly suggest that you do not change your gamertag is you wish to participate in playoffs. The playoff roster is generated with the gamertags from the roster that was present during the roster lock period. Only the usernames and gamertags listed on the playoff roster are eligible to compete in playoff matches.
  • The players listed for the match is also generated by the roster present during the roster lock period.

I want to join a new team for the new season, can I still play in playoffs?
  • Absolutely, as long as you are listed on the playoff roster for a team that qualified in the previous season.
  • However, if you are the leader and disband the team that is in playoffs, your team will be disqualified as no match will be able to be schedule between your would be opponent.

Help!! I was ranked 4th on the ladder, but not put into playoffs?
  • You will have the ability to contest your ineligibility for playoffs if you believe you met the previous stated requirements. This can be done by submitting an Arena: Excluded From Playoffs Ticket
  • In order to be eligible, the team must meet all of the listed requirements. Just holding a top position does not guarantee entry into playoffs.

One of my teammates are banned, can he play?
  • If a player is banned for anything related to ladder or tournament misconduct, then that player is not eligible to participate in playoffs. Using that player will disqualify that team.
  • The only ban exception is for Inappropriate Content bans.

What do I get for winning playoffs?
  • All players on the playoff roster of the 1st and 2nd place teams will receive an achievement on your Gamebattles profile.
  • Additionally, there are several ladders that offer cash prizing for the teams that finish 1st and 2nd. Those ladders will have the prizing listed in the Title

usually it's MLG variant (including respawn), depending on which ladder you're planning in playing playoffs.

Generally speaking, it's top 8,16,32. But to be completely accurate
It is based upon the number of teams active and playoff eligible on the ladder at the time of seeding.
