Scuffed League consists of 3 seasons per year: Winter, Spring, and Summer. There are two smaller championships (Winter and Spring) and one Major Championship: the SL Championship at the end of the Summer season.
How the Seasons Work
Each regular season is 11 weeks, 2 matches per week. Each team faces every other team in their conference two times, once on blue side and once on red. Top 2 teams (tiebreakers decided by average game time) are guaranteed advancement to playoffs, the top team is crowned conference champions. The teams placed 3rd–10th enter the conference gauntlet for the third and final spot in the playoffs. The two teams with the worst records are eliminated from playoff contention.
In the Winter and Spring seasons, after the conference gauntlets are completed, the top three teams from each conference enter the season Winter/Spring Championship.
Winter & Spring Championship
#1 seeds from each region get a BYE round. #1 seeds pick their preferred prospective #2 opponent; order of selection is determined by record and then by average game time.
#2 seeds get to pick their #3 seed opponent. Selected opponent must be from a different from their region; order of selection is determined by record and then by average game time.
Quarterfinals are a best of 3 match, higher seed choosing preferred side for the first game, followed by game loser selecting their preferred side.
Semifinals and Finals are a best of 5; selection of side is determined by record and then by average game time.
Finals victor is crowned Winter/Spring Champion.
Operates the same way as Winter/Spring seasons.
Regular season is 11 weeks, 2 matches per week. Each team faces every other team in their conference two times, once on blue side and once on red. The top team is crowned conference champions.
However, playoff qualification is a bit different. At the end of the season, the top 6 teams from each conference qualify for the double-elimination, National tournament.
#1, #2, and #3 seeds enter the winners bracket, with the #1 seed from each region getting a BYE.
#4, #5, and #6 seeds enter the losers bracket, with the #4 seed getting a BYE. Tournament plays out. Bo1, Bo3, and Bo5 will be decided in the future.
Finalists from the winners bracket are granted 1 free win in their Bo5 with the winner of the losers bracket.
Winner of the Summer Championship are crowned National Champions of the Year.
