Freemiums are welcome as long as they can commit 3 open slots for the qualification phase.
Qualifications: Once the list of players has reached 32, the tournament will be open for signups for only 3-4 more days. If we have more than 32 players, the qualification round will consist of 5 games with either 4 or 5 or 6 players (depending on what is easier to divide players as evenly as possible.) Player will score points each game based on where they finish. The top 32 scorers will move to the elimination round.
Elimination Bracket: Players will be seeded by qualification scores and placed in groups of 4 in each round. The top 2 in each heat will advance to the next round, until a final game with the final four. There will also be a consolation game to determine the players in 5th-8th place. The winner of this tournament will receive an invitation to the Grand Finale tournament at the end of this series.
Rules: - I reserve the right to change the rules or tournament structure at any time to accommodate issues or player amount. - Players will be randomly assigned games in the Qualification phase using random.org. - Players must join their games when invited within 24 hours.
