RL Spring Season Launched

Collegiate Rocket League returns for a whole season in Spring 2019; registration has closed and the season is launched on the website. Read on for more information on the season details.

Format

There will be a group stage with (1) match per week, with the top teams advancing to a single elimination playoff bracket. 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.

In addition, cross platform with PS4 will be allowed. For players who ONLY have PS4, simply select PS4 by inputting the appropriate info; if you have both Steam and PS4, stay on Steam ONLY for now while we finalize multiple platform selection and front end visuals. For more information, please email us at [email protected] for more information!

For full format and settings information, please see the RULES PAGE.

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. A persistent chat will also open on the CSL website on the match day and automatically populate with both teams so you can communicate, due potential cross platform play
    • The match lobby must be setup with the name/password "CSLxyz" for easy access by both teams, with xyz being the match ID number; for example, https://cstarleague.com/rl/matches/33599, should be setup as CSL33599. Either team can create it, just be sure to sync up in the chat!
  2. Add your opponent ingame through their ingame ID if needed, available on their roster on the CSL website (hover over their name or click through to their profile)
  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.

Playoffs

The top (3) teams in each group + the next (4) highest teams from the groups with 8-teams will advance to the 64-team single elimination playoff bracket culminating in a live final event.

As a reminder, every individual set counts! Playoff contention is often decided by set differentials and head-to-head results as there are normally a few tied records, so make sure to get as many set wins as possible, and give up as little as possible (3-0 is better than 3-1, and 2-3 is better than 0-3)!

Prize Pool Reminder:
