There will be three divisions: recreational, competitive and elite. Each tournament will consist of a pool play/round robin, plus an elimination bracket:
We will aim to have pools of 5-6 teams with single games to 21 with a cap at 25, with the Elite division aiming to have pools of 4 teams with best 2-out-of-3 matches for pool play as well. Depending on number of teams we may need to adjust pools and we will have single games to 15 with a cap at 21. Pool play will determine seeding for bracket play - everyone will qualify for a spot in the brackets.
Bracket Play we will be using single elimination for all brackets and playing out for specific final placings. If you lose in the first or second round you’ll automatically drop into a feed-in consolation bracket. As such, every team will be guaranteed at least two bracket play matches.
Tournament Director reserves the opportunity to adjust the format as needed to best serve the needs of the tournament as a whole.
