The tournament will follow the same structure as the Winter Championship. The tournament will be split into 3 weeks of seeding followed by 3 weeks of Double Elimination for the Top 16 and Swiss for the remaining teams.
Qualification will consist of four to 6 games bo1 games across 2-3 weeks depending on signups. Teams will be initially seeded based on rank of individual players into 4 groups. Each round you play you will be paired against another team in your current group and if you win you move up a group.
After qualification the top 16 will progress to Double Elimination bracket and the remaining teams will be seeded into Swiss tournament. Teams who do better in qualification will start the Swiss tournament with points based on finish in Qualification.
The first week will be bo1. After the first week winners bracket games will be bo3 and losers bracket bo1. With the Grand Final being a weighted bo5 meaning team from winner bracket starts with a 1-0 headstart.
Teams who get knocked out of double elimination will be relegated to Swiss League the following week starting with all wins earned during double elimination bracket.
A Swiss League is a league where everyone plays all rounds and teams are 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 1 teams with 7 wins they will play versus a team with 6 wins. Teams tied on wins in final standing we will be ordered OMWP (opponent match win percentage) to Example of how OMPW is used in Guild Wars
