Tournament Details

Format of Tournament

The format of the league will be as follows and be based on 12 vs 12.

  • 1x TDM Match: Not counting towards anything, just to get all players online and ready to go.
  • 2x Conquest: 1 Map will be played twice, with each team deploying from both sides of the map and battling it out.
  • 2x Rush: 1 Map will be played twice, with each team needing to Attach & Defend.
  • 1x Capture The Flag: 1 Map will be played once.

Tournament Structure

The structure of the tournament will be decided on the amount of teams/clans that enter the tournament.

Structure 01: 10 Teams or less (Lets work on 10 as example)

Each team plays 1 match, once a week, but there will be rounds where a team will play 2 matches a week, 3 times in the round robin stages.
This will make the round robin stage last 6 weeks, thereafter the top 8 teams from will go to Quarters, then Semi and then Finals.

Quarters & Semi-Finals

Both these matches will be played ON THE SAME DAY, with a 1 - 2 hour break between them. Maps for both will be announced on the Monday before the match.

Finals

Finals will be the week after the Q/SF have been played, only difference here would be that there will be 2 Maps of CQ (4 Rounds), 2 Maps of Rush (4 Rounds), 1 CTF (1 Round), altogether 9 rounds.


Structure 02: 10 or more teams (Lets work on 12 as example)

All teams will be split into 2 pools via random.org
Each team will play 1 match, once a week in the round robin stages.
This will make the round robin stage last 5 weeks, thereafter the top 4 teams from each pool will go to Quarters, then Semi and then Finals.

Quarters & Semi-Finals
Both these matches will be played ON THE SAME DAY, with a 1 - 2 hour break between them. Maps for both will be announced on the Monday before the match.
MAD CATZ & MWEB want the knockout rounds to be a high pressured event, and I think this could be VERY interesting.

Finals
Finals will be the week after the Q/SF have been played, only difference here would be that there will be 2 Maps of CQ (4 Rounds), 2 Maps of Rush (4 Rounds), 1 CTF (1 Round), altogether 9 rounds.

The Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals & Final will be played on and at a announced time closer to the showdown. All teams that qualified must be ready on the given date and time.

Tournament Fixtures

The fixtures of the tournament will be structured as a ladder (a persistent leader board that is automatically updated as soon as reported results are confirmed).
Each team will need to play against all other entered teams in their pool, the objective being to score enough points to end in the Top 8 on the ladder.

Each week, you will be notified of the teams that you will need to successfully challenge and play in the week.
The ladder system has a built-in challenge system that allows you the flexibility to arrange matches at times and dates that suit both teams, however, ALL SCHEDULED MATCHES MUST BE COMPLETED WITHIN A WEEK.
If you have not completed all matches in the week, you will forfeit that match, more of this in the approved rules.

After all matches were played, Top 8 will advance to the Knockout Rounds.
