Transformers Wars III

PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP IS REQUIRED TO PLAY IN THIS TOURNAMENT.

It's been a long time since the conclusion of Transformers Wars II, but the time has finally come to continue the franchise and find our next Transformers Champion. This will be a doubles tournament, just like the previous installments, but for a twist this time around, the first round will be played as 6-player doubles for a little bit of extra flavor. Don't worry though, the format is incredibly straightforward. Read further to discover all the important details. ;)

Each team will choose a Transformers character from the list provided below who they will represent for the duration of the tournament. Also, each team needs to choose a home map for use in the Qualifying Round and the Finals. All maps are allowed, except for: Classic, Doodle Earth, Chinese Checkers, Circus Maximus, and World 2.1. The Classic map will be used during the Bracket Round for all games, which is why it is not available as a "home" map. The others are just too much of a pain for use in a tournament setting.

All games will use the following settings: Sequential, Flat Rate, Unlimited, Sunny

Qualifying Round:
The 24 teams will be sorted according to the combined score of both players on the team and then divided into 8 separate groups of three teams each. These groups will then play 6 games (2 on each home map). The team with the highest number of wins from the 6 games will advance to the Bracket Round. You will receive 3 games to start, and the second 3 games after approximately 1 week. If all three teams in a group wind up with 2 wins apiece, there will be a sudden death game on the Classic map to determine who advances.

Bracket Round:
The 8 advancing teams will be randomly sorted into two 4-team triple-elimination brackets. All games in the bracket will be played on the Classic map. The brackets are displayed below. If they seem confusing at first, don't worry, I've got it all figured out, and all you need to know is that you won't be eliminated until you have lost 3 times. The winning team from each bracket will advance to the Final Round.

Final Round:
The two finalist teams will play a 7 game series with the first 6 games being alternated on the home maps of the two teams. If needed, Game 7 will be played on the Classic map. The first team to win 4 games will be crowned champion of the tournament.
