Tournament Structure

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.

Week 1-4

Swiss League

For the first four weeks of the tournament we will be 8 rounds of swiss across 4 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

Week 5

Top 4

After the swiss stage finishes, the top 4 will be seeded into a single elimination bracket. Semifinals and Finals will be bo3.
