There are a few requirements for teams to be eligible to be added to the playoff tournament. Below is a general description of those requirements.
- Team must be created before the Season Roster Lock that begins on the specified date. This is generally the last one (1) to two (2) weeks of the season.
- Teams may not override the roster lock. This includes, but is not limited to, role changes, updating GamerTags, adding/removing players.
- Team must play a predetermined number of matches during the roster lock period. This keeps the top teams active and to not hold the top ladder rankings without playing near in the end of a season.
- Team must have the minimum required players listed on the playoff schedule. These may or may not be the same as the ladder minimum roster requirements for ladder matches.
If the ladder is sponsored and/or provides prizes, more eligibility requirements will be listed. Below is an example of what is posted on all ladders rules pages. Make sure to fully review the rules page for the ladder you are competing on.
