trippaa full 2 month offseason for even the teams playing in grand finals of their division is too long imo
Just thought I would share regarding this, because I hear it being brought up fairly often-
ESEA ran a pretty consistent schedule, 8 week seasons, 4 week post seasons, and a break week between regular season and playoffs. However, ESEA Season 31 actually ended rather uniquely early compared to their normal schedule (almost a month so in fact). You can check it out in the spoiler tags using froyotech's match dates as a reference.
I don't really know what caused the ESEA seasons this year to start earlier than normal, but that is the main reason this offseason is going be awkwardly long. S31 ended July 23, so RGL S1 started a month later on August 22nd. Atm grand finals for RGL-Invite are going to be during the 2nd or 3rd week of November (sometime between the 11th and 22nd most likely). If I start the next season a month after, that happens to be right around the time that the holiday/Christmas season is starting (which I want to avoid).
The schedule that ESEA used from around S20 to S29 was-
Jan X - April X
May X - August X
September X - December X
where X is a day in the first or second week of the month.
