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.

Overwatch Rules

Map Selection should be done using pre-game lobby chat.

  • All results should be submitted using tournament companion.
  • The available map pool is: All Maps.

Map Selection will be determined as follows depending on number of rounds in a match:

  • Best-of-Five (Bo5)-Teams alternate banning maps until 5 maps remain, these maps are then played in a random order.
  • Best-of-Three (Bo3)-Teams alternate banning maps until 3 maps remain, these maps are then played in a random order.
  • Best-of-One (Bo1)-Teams alternate banning maps until 1 map remains, this is then the map played.

Map ties will be settled by a Bo1 Control map announced before that night’s games begin.

Custom Game Settings:

  • Rule set: Competative
  • Disable Kill Cam: ON

Full rules doc will be available before season starts.
