This article explains the key dates, times, game information, and more for the MSEL Fall Major 2022 competition. Please ensure that all team members are aware of the MSEL GENERAL TOURNAMENT RULES before registration.

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 

Moving forward, we are expanding the Rocket League queue times on the originally scheduled makeup days (11/11 and 11/18; both Fridays). All standard queue times will be available on these days. Additionally, we will unlock the ability for your team to queue multiple times on those days if necessary. We hope this will help you have the flexibility you need to schedule matches. Additionally, we are reducing the minimum completed match requirement for playoff eligibility down to five for this season only, instead of the usual six.
