Welcome to a new season of CEA Open League! There are 8 divisions, each consisting of 7 teams. Your performances from each week help seed you into Playoffs after your 7 week season. Note that there is no limit on how many teams can participate from each school.
For more information, please check out the Handbook.
Schedule and Format
Participating schools will be seeded into one of the 8 divisions based on the location of the school. Teams within their region will play against other teams in the division in a round-robin format, facing each other once throughout the group-stage phase. Group-stage matches follow a best of 2 format. 3 points for two maps won, 2 points for a map win and a map draw and 1 point for a tied series (two map draws or a map win and a map loss). Round differentials are kept to break ties. The default match time is every Wednesday at 9:00pm ET each week. However, teams are free to reschedule their matches as long as matches are played before Saturday 11:59pm ET the same week. At the end of the group-stage phase, top 2 in each division will move onto Playoffs.
