CS, Dota 2 and COD PC round deadlines relaxed

Load Shedding has taken a tole on all teams and we appreciate the lengths our community has gone to, to accommodate each other during dark time. Unfortunately even the most organised of teams cannot always avoid the impact load shedding, and so we have made some changes to further help out. 

VS Gaming has decided to relax and regulations during the load shedding period to provide teams with some breathing room when arranging their matches. Matches will no longer expire by the end of each match week, but will instead reach their deadline at the end of the leg. That means that the remaining matches can be played at any time between now and the 10th of March. 

We do warn all teams that if they leave their match until the last moment of the leg, and for whatever reason the match cannot be played, we will not show further leniency. Play your matches early, so that if anything does go wrong, you have time to reschedule. 

This is limited to:

  • CS:GO
  • Dota 2
  • COD Black Ops 4 PC

Amended booking regulations for 2019 Load Shedding

  • Teams in the CS:GO, Dota 2 and COD Black Ops 4 PC league have until the end of leg 1 to book and play their matches. No match played after the final day of Leg 1 will be considered valid, unless special allowance is made by an admin.
  • Matches that are not booked or played due to a lack of effort/poor-organising/bad-communication - not a result of load-shedding - will be dealt with on a case by case basis. If the admin determines that the match was not played due to a lack of effort or due to poor organisation on the player or teams behalf, the team in question will be held responsible and issued with a forfeit.
  • Matches which were scheduled to be completed by the 17th of February maintain their deadline, provided they were not influenced by load-shedding. Matches which could not be played by the 17th of February due to load shedding will be granted the extension (until the end of the leg). Match disputes will be investigated on a case by case basis to determine the correct outcome.
