Peanut's 3X Double-Elimination - Team Doubles Tournament
This tournament is in the same style as my Singles Editions. It is bracket-type tournament with each round being itself a double-elimination series. All 64 teams will be grouped by 4 and the winning team of each group will be the winner of the double-elimination round and move on to the following round in another group with 3 other winning teams. Note that elimination doesn't mean a loss in a single game but rather in a set of games against one team (i.e. best of 3). You can lose no more than one set of games per round.
The tournament winning team will therefore have to win 3 consecutive 4-team double-elimination brackets.
When signing up, please only one post per team and include the name of both team members as well as the home map selection.
For those unfamiliar with a double-elimination bracket, here is the format for 4 teams (which we will be using).
How the tournament works Round 1 Given that we have 49 teams signed up, we will have 15 groups of 3 and 1 group of 4 all chosen randomly. The groups of 3 will play a modified double-elimination bracket (see spoiler above). The group of 4 will play a standard double-elimination bracket (see diagram above). 3 games at a time (1 on each home map, 1 on random map). Match-up winner determined by best of 3. Winner of the bracket moves on to the next round.
Round 2 16 teams grouped in 4s by ranking (see below). Double-elimination brackets for each group (see diagram above). 5 games at a time (2 on each home map, 1 on random map). Match-up winner determined by best of 5. Winner of the bracket moves on to the next round.
Round 3 4 finalists in the same group. Double-elimination brackets (see diagram above). 7 games at a time (3 on each home map, 1 on random map). Match-up winner determined by best of 7. Winner of the bracket claims victory in the tournament!

It is the same mechanics as the 1v1 tournament, but with teams of 2, so the post was modified taking those changes into account. If I missed something or something isn't clear, by all means let me know.
