After three months of TF2 action, the ESEA Season 24 Invite playoffs is ready to kick off, with four teams looking to make the final ascent to the trophy.

ESEA title holders froyotech haven't skipped a beat following their win at Rewind LAN last January, going on a perfect run to place 1st in the regular season. EVL Gaming, who grabbed bronze at Rewind, placed right behind b4nny’s squadron in 2nd, dropping only three games in the regular season.

Taking 3rd place in the regular season are Six Apes, with saam’s men making their first playoff appearance in their second season of Invite. Last but not least, Jamal E-Sports will grab the final slot for the playoffs thanks to their 4th place finish, marking their second appearance in the Invite playoffs.

The ESEA Invite Season 24 playoff teams are:

  • froyotech
  • EVL Gaming
  • Six Apes
  • Jamal E-Sports

The teams will be seeded into a double elimination bracket, where two loses will knock them out of the playoffs. The team that makes the grand finals from the upper bracket will come in with an advantage, needing to win only one best-of-three series to win, while the team that climbs from the lower bracket will have to win two best-of-three's.

The playoffs will start tonight, with Six Apes taking on EVL Gaming, while Jamal E-Sports will have a big task in their hands at taking down froyotech tomorrow. Coverage of the playoffs will be streamed on our Twitch channel, and be sure to keep an eye on our schedule page to know when each match will go live.

unskilledi can't believe saam's team placed higher than showstopper's

technically they beat us in the head to head twice but for some reason esea decided to determine seeding based on rounds for instead of h2h so we slipped into 3rd because we took one more round during the regular season (both teams finished 9-7)

Also, it should say that the team that wins the upper bracket finals only has to win one bo3, rather than "[t]he team that makes the grand finals will come in with an advantage. . . "

Looking forward to watching as many matches as the schedule allows.
