League is open to everyone of all genders, ages, and skill-types.

NOTE: We are working on a solution with Cevo to find a better way to host games then what we will likely begin the season with, which is the team captains organizing the lobby/server and adding their players. You will be updated on this matter on Discord.

RULES + LOGISTICS

Forfeits and Rescheduling:
If your team cannot have 5 players by the start of the game, a 15 minute mercy will be given to find the required players to have a full-team. Please notify OeSL admin if your team is in trouble to meet this requirement, the earlier the better.

Matches can be rescheduled as long as BOTH Teams agree to it.Players trying to reschedule a match the DAY OF the game may have to suffer a loss if the opposing team does not agree to it.

Substitutes:
Subs are allowed to be made before the start of any round, even mid-matchup. If you will be requiring a sub for an upcoming game, any player within the league may be used as a sub. If going outside of the league, please notify OeSL Admin.

We understand that on the rare occasion - One or Two players may not show-up to a game without warning in time for the start of the first round. Which can ruin the experience for everyone. Therefore instead of a forfeit we allow substitutions and players to fill on a team. Please send us their:

  1. NAME
  2. EMAIL
  3. IGN
  4. DISCORD ID


BEFORE MATCH
Left side of schedule is the home team, with the Team Captain in-charge of setting up the match (We recommend Cevo). Please aim to have your game setup 15 minutes prior to start-time. Players are encouraged to communicate in the allotted “Team Chats” on the OeSL Discord. If you haven’t joined yet, please do: https://discord.gg/rBKFDR8.

DURING MATCH
We encourage each team to have a designated streamer or someone recording the match. With regards to streaming, we will be showcasing all streams of games pertaining to your league, so please share with us in advance if you possess the capabilities and are looking to do this.

AFTER MATCH
The Team Captain of each team is expected to take a screenshot of the end-game scoreboard reflecting all team’s stats and the score. This is to be posted in the Discord “CSGO-results” channel immediately after the week’s matchups are completed. Standings will be updated the following day by OeSL.

 

GRACE PERIOD
If a team does not show up to a match at its scheduled time there is a 15 minute GRACE PERIOD. After 15 minutes the teams can either decide to reschedule the match OR the team that has missing members forfeits and takes a LOSS. Please submit a screenshot of the lobby of the match verifying that all team members are either present or absent.  

 

SUBMITTING SCORES
Please post the final scores and screenshots of EACH ROUND in the DISCORD. There is a channel called: #CSGO-results

Team X vs Team Y
