Season Guide to CSL Fortnite Fall League 2019

CSL is an intercollegiate gaming league open to all accredited colleges and universities in North America. For 2019 we will be running a Fortnite Fall league with weekly online Battle Royale matches. During the regular season, teams of two (2) ("Duos") will play two (2) matches per week within their conference. Matches will take place every Sunday from November 3 to November 23. Points will be awarded to teams based on their final placing (1st, 2nd, etc.) and number of eliminations in each match. The regular season will be open to 500 teams, and spots will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. A school is welcome to field more than one (1) roster, assuming that there's room available.

At the end of the regular season, the five (5) teams with the most points from each conference will qualify for the Playoffs, which will consist of four (4) matches across two (2) days (December 7 and 8). Once again, points will be awarded to teams based on their final placing (1st, 2nd, etc.) and number of eliminations in each match, and those points will be used to determine the final results of the Fortnite Fall league.

Tips for New Coordinators and Teams:

Running a CSL team can be daunting, fun, or both! Here are some tips that we've gathered over the years to make the best of your experience:

1. Read the rules

Carefully. Rules are very important for creating a smooth experience!

2. Pick a responsible coordinator

This is the person who will submit lineups/reports on time, file disputes for forfeits or cheating accusations, and communicate with CSL admins on your behalf on a weekly basis; coordinators will also be responsible for making sure all team members are eligible under the rules. You don't want to incur penalties because your coordinator is disorganized or forgetful!

3. Know that not all teams are flexible

The default start times for all regular season matches are between 11:00 AM PT and 4:40 PM PT on Sunday. See section Format – Match Details below for more information. Unfortunately, given the volume of teams competing, matches are not able to be rescheduled and will start 10 minutes after their scheduled start time, regardless of the number of teams present. Only sign your team up for this league knowing that you will have to set aside time on Sunday afternoons.

Official Rules:

The following are the official rules of the CSL Fortnite league. Rules cover eligibility, format, match procedures, reporting, penalties, and more.
