As we kick off the season, we are pleased to announce the ESEA League Season 29 playoff schedule for CS:GO.

For MDL matches: The LAST night to complete regular season matches will be Sunday, November 11th, 2018.

For non MDL matches: The LAST night to complete regular season matches will be Sunday, November 18th, 2018. We will be releasing the final seeds and match ups Monday, November 19th, 2018. The default match time is 8:30 pm (America/Chicago) and must be played +- 24 hours from the scheduled match time. For example, if the default day for your match is December 6th, you can play the match anywhere December 5th at 8:30 pm (America/Chicago) until December 7th at 8:30 pm (America/Chicago). You can play before the 24 hour window if both teams agree to a time on the match page and open a ticket so an admin can schedule it. However, you cannot play after the +- 24 hour window, so re-arrange your work schedules, dates, or anything else that can conflict with this.

For CS:GO: Players will veto in the gameserver at the time of the match.
The map pool is: de_nuke, de_train, de_mirage, de_cache, de_dust2, de_inferno, de_overpass
