At the ESC: THE ELITE SERIES Grand Finals, there will be an open bracket for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 & Skullgirls. This allows players who have not yet attended a qualifiers one last chance t the $500 prize pool.
Here’s how it works. Anyone can enter the Open bracket. The bracket will be played out until there are 4 people left on the winner’s side, as well as 4 people left on the loser’s side. From this point, these 8 players will qualify for the pro bracket, where the players who have already acquired seeding points await. The top 4 seeds out of the players that got seeding points will get a 1st round bye. The bottom 4 seeds out of the players that got seeding points will have to play the 4 players that qualified from the open bracket on the winner’s side in the 1st round. The 4 players that qualified from the open bracket on the loser’s side will retain their status in the pro bracket. Therefore they will be waiting in the 1st round of losers and will play the players that are defeated in 1st round winners.
This allows the players who attended the qualifiers to maintain an advantage for earning seeding points, while still giving an opportunity for a new player to come in and win the whole thing! The entry fee for the open bracket is $10 which is payable at the door at A&C games on August 4th.
Open Bracket Entry (per game): $10
