Q: Who starts off on which side?
A: Home team gets to pick starting side on their map picks, while away team gets to pick starting side on their own respective map picks.

As an independent arbitrator for these two teams, since they both contain admins. The issue of exile ringing came up as a question of the purpose of the ringer system. As players do need to be rang at times, but if you default ring someone for a majority of your playoff games. Then what's the point of the roster lock.

KND agrees, as do I, that exile is generally within the skill range of Artz, but to just choose to replace someone just for the playoffs, goes against the spirit of the rules. We do have a limit on how many times a player can ring for a team. But, I know that when I wrote that rule I did not consider someone using it purely for a playoff run.

We will not allow exile to become the new main just for playoffs. So if Rewind plays him tonight, RGL is okay with that, however, we would not allow him to play in the Grand Finals then, if Rewind got to that point. If they choose to not play him tonight, then he would be okay to play in the GFs.
