RL Season Registration Open

Collegiate Rocket League will return for a whole season in Spring 2018; registration is open now through end of day January  6th. Register now to compete for your slice of a $10,000 prize pool!

Format

There will be a group stage with (1) match per week, with the top teams advancing to a single elimination playoff bracket (size based on final registration numbers). The match format will be largely the same as the one-day tournaments from the Fall, however, after taking feedback from participating teams, the group stage matches will expand to Best-of-Five.

For full format and settings information, please see the RULES PAGE; be aware that the rules may be changed slightly before registration ends.

Weekly Match Day

This NEWS POST has a guide to what you can expect on a typical match day, we will also cover the basic overview of a weekly match day below:

  1. Add your opponent ingame through their ingame ID, available on their roster on the CSL website (hover over their name or click through to their profile)
  2. A persistent chat will also open on the CSL website on the match day and automatically populate with both teams so you can communicate
  3. Play out your matches and take screenshots of the end results for each map
  4. Report ALL maps on the match page OR request a forfeit on the match page with the relevant evidence for no shows/opponent voluntary forfeits. Either team can report, however it is the winner’s responsibility to double check that matches are reported fully and properly. Any matches not reported will count as a loss for both sides so make sure you check!
  5. If there are no issues, and your matches are reported properly on the CSL site, that’s it! If there are issues, always contact your tournament admins on Discord or by email (always document evidence of ANY issues/conflicts or else we may not be able to verify it and help you!)

As a note, participants can reschedule their matches to another day/time if both sides come to an agreement, however you should expect to leave Saturdays at 12pm PST open by default. Any unreported matches by the end of the regular season will be counted as forfeit losses for both sides and any playoff matches not reported by the end of that weekend will also be forfeited.

Prizing

The prize pool will be $10,000 distributed as follows:

How To Register

This is a free-to-play tournament. That's right, there is no registration fee! Registration is open to all North American (US and Canada) colleges and univeresities from now through end of day Jan 6th.

Participants must be full-time status students in good standing at the start of the season (Winter quarter/Spring semester) with a few exceptions; players who graduated at the end of the Fall are not eligible. For full eligibility rules, see the RULES PAGE for information, and for other rules and restrictions.

Once your CSL player accounts and the team are setup, the coordinator will be able to enroll the team in the season on the team page; once the team is enrolled you will receive a confirmation in the form of a big green check mark on your team page. For a sample of what this process looks like, please see THIS ALBUM.

Note that just registering your user account and creating a team is not enough; you must actively select to enroll on your team page to be actually registered to compete! If you do not enroll properly on your team page, you will NOT be included in the registered teams list and will therefore be left out when the groups are launched.

If you have any questions, contact us at [email protected] at any time!
