Stacked Playoffs of AoC Season 40 Start!


There's plenty of top quality teamgame competing going on now in the community, but the most important fights are readying to happen in RTS League's Age of Empires II: The Conquerors Clan League - Season 40 has been of exceeding quality so far, and that's why we decided to advance more clans to the postseason than planned - even the fourth-placed are still so high-skilled they deserve a chance to fight for the banners! Since Vikingos Nómadas are not defending the Title, we're definitely curious who will climb to the top, and, quite frankly, looking at the line-up, it could be pretty much anyone:

Arg, BF', ByT, CLB, CZ, Frantic, nC, RFR, RoR, SlayeR, TheJedi, TheJedi|Z, TIC, VIK, WaR', Weljet

Playoff Bracket

Who's your pick to claim the prestigious RTS League Banners? Will it be some established clan, or one of the newcomers? Let us know on our community channels and follow us there as well to keep yourself up to date and also to be able to catch all the live streams coming your way! smile

Info for the clans

First and foremost congrats on advancing forward in the tournament!

Even though there is one full weekend ahead of us to get the first round done, we realise it might be a bit difficult for some with the Thursday start, so if you cannot make it this week, you can play Round of 16 next week as well - but it would be cool if you made an effort for this weekend already smile

Concerning the format, Round of 16 is standard Best of 3 (home map each clan, third on Blind Random), starting from Quarterfinals it changes into Best of 5 with two set maps - we'll let you know the pre-set maps soon in the info topic in the scheduling forum.

Round of 16: 29th June - 9th July
Quarterfinals: 10th - 16th July
Semifinals: 17th-23rd July
Grand Finals/Bronze Match: 24th-30th July

If you're wondering how the Playoffs seeding was done, it follows these few simple rules: reached position in the Division, reached points total, results of match-ups within the division, first and second from one division can meet only in the Finals, potentially diversity consideration to prevent same-division match-ups in the first round (we already know how clans played against each other in the division, Playoffs are about comparing with other divs! smile). All in all, the quality and skill level of this season is really high, so there really isn't any "easy" path to the Gold for anyone smile

That's it then - let's get to responsible scheduling in the forums and have some proper AoC fun smile

Gl&hf clans, may the skill be with you!
