The Spring Championship will be ran In 2 stages a 4 week league followed by single elimination top 8 (quarters, semis, finals).
For the first four weeks of the Overwatch tournament we will be running a 12 rounds of swiss across 4 weeks (3 Bo1 games a night for first two weeks, 2 Bo3s a night for the third and fourth weeks). In a swiss everyone plays all rounds and teams are then ranked on number of wins. Teams will always play against someone with same number of wins. E.g. If you win your first game and lose second the the third game you will play against someone else with 1 win and 1 loss. Sometimes it is not possible to pair everyone with someone with exactly same number of wins in this situation we try and match closest fit. Eg if there is only one team with 7 wins they will play versus a team with 6 wins. Teams tied on wins in final standing will be ordered by OMWP(opponent match win percentage). An example of how OMPW is used in guild wars https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Match_win_percentage
After the swiss stage finishes, the top 8 will be seeded into a single elimination bracket. Quarter finals and semifinals will be bo3 and grand finals will be bo5.
