Swiss Style with Top 8 Elimination Bracket.
There is no elimination in a Swiss format. There will be 4 rounds of Bo3. Each round you will be paired with an opponent and given a predetermined map to start. After the first round, the loser will pick the next map (No map may be played twice in a match) and so on until the Bo3 is over. After the four rounds of Bo3 the top 8 players (subject to change based on attendance) will then move on to the bracketed elimination finals. The quarter finals, and semifinals will be played in a Bo3 format. The finals for the tournament will be a Bo5.
Tardy rule: Since we are running a Swiss tournament, we cannot start a new round until all of the players have finished the current round. Any player who is more than 10 minutes late to a round will receive a forfeit loss for that round.
Observers: Because no one is eliminated during the Swiss portion of the tournament participants are not allowed to spectate other matches. During the elimination bracket spectating is fine but cheating of any kind will result in disqualification.
Reporting Results: All tournament players are required to report their result. Failure to report a result may end up in a forfeit for that round.
Technical Difficulties: Any drop occurring before the 5 minute mark will result in a rematch using the same map. Any other drop will be reviewed by the tournament coordinator.
