Tournament Overview

5 weeks / 5 rounds of modified swiss, each game being a best of one series. After the 5 weeks the top 8 teams will go into a single elimination bracket where they will play one best of three each week, until there is only one team left.

Summer Tournament Format Infographic

Modified Swiss

Teams will be matched against other teams that have the same/ similar points (wins). We will pre generate a swiss bracket each week based on which teams have “checked-in” to play, this lets us avoid the problem of having to wait for all games in a round to finish before starting next round. This also helps us reduce playing the same team twice but does not eliminate rematches altogether.

Single Elimination Bracket

Teams are matched against each other based on seeding, with the lowest seed playing against the highest seed, the second highest seed playing against the second lowest seed and so on.E.g. 1st vs 8th, 2nd vs 7th, 3rd vs 6th and 4th vs 5th.

When a team loses they are eliminated from the tournament and the winners progress onto the next round, this occurs until there is one team left.

Key rules everyone must know:

  • There will be a Check in system released during the tournament, you must check you team in on Sunday before 6pm. If a team does not check in by 6pm they will not be seeded into that evening’s fixtures.
  • Captains must be the player representing the team on tournament night. Results must be submitted by both captains via the companion before starting their next game. Failure of either of these may result in penalties.
  • We expect teams to remain sporting at all times, In the event of any flame or other poor sportsmanship please take screenshots and submit to admins.
  • Teams are expected to arrive promptly to all games. If a team does not have all 5 players ready to play 20mins after the scheduled start time they will forfeit the game, (or 20 mins after both teams have finished the previous round match).
  • Rosters will be locked after the Check-in deadline. After roster lock, teams can make one emergency sub, which must be done 1 hour prior to any matches they wish to take part in.
  • If you are unsure of any rules contact an admin.
