Following the contact made with competing teams, below we have listed full info pertaining to the remastered OCS system for public viewing. For teams competing in the "Ladder Division" and "Champions Division", make sure you've read through the full brief to familiarise yourself with the changes.


TRANSFER PERIOD

- The transfer period will be a completely open transfer window. This simply means teams may make core changes (More than 3 players traded) to the line-up leading into the rest of the season.

- Organizations will retain the seed for the season.

- Transfer Period will open at exactly 00:01AM on Monday the 21st of August.

- Transfer Period will close at exactly 23:59:PM on Sunday the 27th of August.

NB* All lineup changes need to be emailed to info@orena.com before 23:59PM on Sunday the 27th of August for the changes to be considered.

ADDED SECOND LEG (PLAYOFFS)

Considering the above changes, we will be implementing a "playoff" leg.

This means that the "organizations" that made more than 3 core changes to their lineup will head into a playoff against the 3rd to (number depends on how many Champions Division teams made core changes) placed teams in the "ladder" division, at the end of the OCS season.

Playoffs will be played ONLINE.
