We are aiming to finish this competition before the Christmas break, although some Cups may run over. You must however stay on top of the roster by scheduling and playing your matches on time!

Given the problems that many have experienced with some clans not following the rules in the past, which in turn affects everyone from the players to the supervisors to the broadcasters, all should be aware that we are going to be more strict on enforcing the Cup rules!
