Event Format:

Bracket Format & Seeding

  1. The Event will support as many as 128 Players.
  2. The Event will consist of two Double Elimination Brackets and a Final Match.
  3. Each Double Elimination Bracket will have its own Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket. After losing a Match in a Winners Bracket, Players will enter the corresponding Losers Bracket. A Match loss in a Losers Bracket will result in elimination from the Event.
  4. Players will be seeded based on MLG Rank. Ties will be broken randomly. Players without an MLG Rank will be seeded randomly.

Match Format

  1. All Games will be Best of 5 Rounds.
  2. All Matches, except for the Final Match, will be Best of 5 Games, unless the Players have already played each other in the Event.
  3. If Players are scheduled to play each other for a 2nd time in the Event, their Match will expand to a Best of 11, include the previous Match, and pick up where that Match left off. For example, if Player A beat Player B 3 Games to 0 in the Winners Bracket, the Best of 11 will resume with Game 4 and Player A leading 3 Games to 0.
  4. If the Players scheduled to play each other in either of the Semifinal Matches have not yet played against each other in the Event, an initial Best of 5 Games Match must be played. If the Player who came from the Winners Bracket wins the initial Match, they will advance to the Final. If the Player who came from the Losers Bracket wins the initial Match, the Match will expand to a Best of 11, include the initial Match, and pick up where that Match left off. For example, if the Losers Bracket Player beat the Winners Bracket Player 3 Games to 0 in the initial Match, the Best of 11 will resume with Game 4 and the Losers Bracket Player leading 3 Games to 0. The winner of a Semifinal Best of 11 will advance to the Final.
  5. The Final Match will be Best of 7 Games, between the winners of the Semifinal Matches. The winner of the Final Match will win the Event.
