A long (and chaotic season, screw you COVID!) is coming to an end: do you have what it takes to claim the trophy of your Fantasy League and become a Champion?
HOWEVER! The end of the Fantasy Leagues does not mean the end of the Fantasy Season. We have something pretty cool planned for the Overwatch League playoffs and will release more details in the next days!
Unless otherwise stated or configured, the top 4 fantasy teams will make to the playoffs in a single elimination 4 team bracket. Standings are first determined by wins and losses. The winner of the playoffs is the winner of your entire league!
The default tiebreakers will be determined in the following order, but can be updated in your league settings:
- Total fantasy score
- Head to head record
- Coin Toss
When viewing your league schedule, you should see the playoffs bracket at the bottom.
Playoffs take place across two weekends:
Semi Finals: Week 28 (August 14-16)
Finals: Week 29 (August 21-23)
If you happen to not make to playoffs, you enter the “Trash Tier”. Instead of a traditional bracket, the loser advances to the next round, so you definitely don’t want to be the last team standing…
The team that loses to every other team becomes the 🗑️ can. Even if you don’t reach playoffs, try your best to avoid “earning” the Trash Can!
In order to avoid stacking rosters, trades will be turned off during playoffs. Waivers and Free Agents will be available as normal but you will still have to submit a waiver in your league’s waiver order. If other users who are not in the playoffs drop players from their team, those players will go to waivers like normal as well.
