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.
- The team must be created before the Season Roster Lock that begins on the specified date. This is generally the last 1-2 weeks of the season.
- The team must not override the roster lock. This includes, but is not limited to, role changes, updating GamerTags, and adding/removing players.
- The team must play a predetermined number of matches during the roster lock period. This keeps top teams actives and filters out inactive teams when creating the playoff bracket.
- The 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.
