Season 3 has just started, and the schedule for the first three weeks has been released. You can now do your map-vetos, rescheduling-offers and preparations for each game. We are looking forward to see how this season will turn out!
GOOD TO KNOW:
It is absolutely necessary to join our Discord here: https://discord.gg/kvJt68Wutk since we announce league-updates there, like updates in rules or anything regarding the league format. We also handle tickets from Discord, and it is a very easy platform to find contact with your opponents regarding rescheduling. If you have not already, join our Discord and let us know what team you are in, and we'll distribute the "Scheduler" role for you.
I can't do veto/rescheduling for my team?
If you are a manager/scheduler, but not a player then you might not see the map-vetos or the rescheduling-tool. To fix that, just add yourself to the league-roster. You don't have to pay for the league-roster slot, just sign yourself up and leave it unpaid. You'll be able to do rescheduling/vetos for your team once that's done.
I don't want to miss the rescheduling-offers
You can enable notifications on your browser, just make sure you don't have addons like ad-block to block the notifications. Either way, make sure to be in our Discord since that is usually where people will contact you. Set a scheduler role on your team-page, and make sure to accept Steam friend-requests.
It is also highly recommended to check out the SCL Website at least once a day, just to make sure nothing goes missed.
What anti-cheat will be used?
We are using Akros AC, make sure to download it. The link is available in the header of the website. It needs to be turned on in order to connect to the servers.
Read the league-rules, read read read it.
It is a requirement to read the league-rules, because you wouldn't want anything to bite you in the back because you forgot to. We are trying to prevent all kinds of default-hunting here on SCL, and we have designed the rules to make it harder to default-hunt. Therefore, the scheduling rules is extremely important and you have to make sure you understand them.
Use of coach.
Even though it's stated clearly in the league-rules have we received a lot of questions regarding coach. The coach can be used as a stand-in as well, and a coach counts as a 6th player. Yes, the coach has to be paid for.
To coach your team on the server, simply just connect to the server and type !coach in the chat. Make sure to connect before your whole team, since you can't access the chat if your team already has 5 players connected.
Streaming, casting, GOTV IP?
For teams with their own stream and casters, please read the league-rules regarding it. You are allowed to stream matches here on SCL, just make sure you follow our guidelines.
The GOTV IP will be public once the server is live. The current GOTV delay is set to 180 seconds.
We will cover as many matches as we can with our official streams and casters. However, higher divisions is more prioritized.
