This is a single-round, single-table tournament, with each team playing 3 games on each map. The draw will be completely random for each of the 8 maps and for each version (2-, 3-, 4-player) game on each map, so the schedule will be unbalanced and individual teams may face particular teams more often than other teams. GAME FLOW
The draw for the 4-team games will be made and invites issued for those matches first. Once 1/4 (12) of those games are complete, the draw for the 3-team games will be made and those invites will be issued. Once 1/2 (24) of the 4-team games are complete, the draw for the 2-team games will be made and invites will be issued.TIEBREAKERS
In the event of a tie for first place on points, the first tiebreaker will be the most points taken from common games (games where the tied players were opponents).
The second tiebreaker will be the most wins in common 2-team games.
The third tiebreaker will be the most overall wins on the 4-team maps.
The fourth tiebreaker will be a head-to-head match on the North America map.
