Finals are approaching fast, so make sure everyone is ready. There are a few extra things about finals that should be pointed out lest they become an issue due to bad assumptions, especially for the newer teams and players on the block.

No Mercs in finals
The last transfer round closes 27th November at midnight, so make sure you get in your last round requests soon! Especially if you have not let your league admin know that you are having roster issues, this will be enforced pretty strictly and you may end up at the mercy of the other team.
Mercenaries are only permitted during the playoffs and finals under unique circumstances and the opposing team’s captain and your division administrator must agree to allow the proposed mercenary to play.
If you have been having roster issues and it looks like you will make top 4, talk to your league admin now.

Finals matches can sometimes take up to three hours
You can end up going to three maps with two 30 minute halves each, so finals can go for quite a while. Make sure you budget enough time for the whole match!

Map picking system has been changed
Away team (lower seed) now picks first as to give the picking advantage to the higher seeded team.

Map ties are decided by a golden cap
It is impossible to tie a map in finals rounds as a golden cap will be played out.

If you have any issues or questions, you can post them here or talk to an admin. Make sure you sort out any issues before they become issues and keep a good open line of communication with the admin team.

Best of luck for finals!

An error caused some match threads to be posted listing cp_sunshine_rc1a to be used in round 4 and 5 of owl 12. The correct version is rc2. It can be downloaded as part of the OWL 12 map pack.
