2.17 The serverhoster decides which map will be driven first. The opponent has the right to choose the second.
2.18 Even in the playoffs, you are supposed to drive ALL three maps, even if the score is 2-0 already.

2.19 Group play 2 (optional, depending on signups)
Rule change: All will start from 0 pts in Group Play 2. After understanding the possibilities for unfairness of keeping your points from 1st to 2nd group play, I have desided to change it to let all teams starts at 0 pts in GP2, Sry for the unclearness, but its for the better.

2.20 Playoff rules
1:st and 2nd in each group play goes to playoffs
If 2 team are tied on 2nd place in group play, the team that won the match between the teams will advance to playoffs.

Possible scores:
3-0 gives the winner 3 pts and the looser 0 pts
2-1 gives the winner 2 pts and looser 1 pts.

Suggested match times:
Sundays at 20.00 CET (Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Wien…)
Option: teams agree on other time and day. Keep in mind, default match time overrules any other suggestions.
