GFINITY SPRING SERIES PERMANENT ROSTER LOCK INFORMATIONThis is a quick reminder that team rosters for all Gfinity Spring Series will lock permanently on Thursday, September 6th, 2018 at 11:59 PM ET. After this date, there will be ABSOLUTELY NO roster changes permitted for any team, for any reason, for the remainder of the event. With that said, we recommend that teams have backup players available and on team rosters in case of any unexpected absences that may arise to prevent unnecessary forfeit losses.
We enforce the permanent roster lock at the end of each season to prevent teams from stacking up on the talent from other teams that will not qualifiy for the playoffs and to encourage teams to remain together for the entire event. Additionally, team captains should take note of CEVO's prize claim policy outlined below and make final roster adjustments accordingly.
Again, team rosters will remain open from now until Thursday, September 6th, 2018 at 11:59 PM ET.
