Welcome to
Alpha Beta 8.
Tournament Set-Up-- This will be a
32 player, 1 vs. 1 double elimination bracket styled tournament. Please note that a minimum 98 percent turn percentage is required to be admitted into the tournament.
-- All 32 players will begin in the
Alpha Bracket. The opening bracket is determined via random.org.
-- The
Alpha Bracket will use a different map each round (See listing below).
-- Win your
Alpha Round and continue to compete in the
Alpha Bracket.
-- Losers of each
Alpha Round will be moved to the
Beta Bracket.
-- The
Beta Bracket will use the Thailand map. If the Thailand map gets quenched (is no longer officially
Beta), it will still be considered
Beta for the sake of this tournament.
-- Win a match in the
Beta Bracket and advance to the next round. Lose a match in the
Beta Bracket and you're eliminated.
-- The eventual
Alpha Champion and
Beta Champion will play a game (Round 9) on the
Beta map. If the
Alpha Champion wins that match, then the
Beta Champion will have lost twice and the tournament will be completed and the
Alpha Champion wins the tournament. If the
Beta Champion wins that match (Round 9), then a
do or die game (Round 10) will be played on the
Alpha Map.-- Also, note that the
Alpha Bracket Runner-Up (Loser Of Round Alpha Round 5) goes to the
Beta Final in Round 8. Otherwise
Alpha losers always play in the following
Beta Round. If you haven't deciphered it already, you play less games in the Alpha Bracket. Therefore it pays to win
. The road to victory is much tougher on the
Beta side of the bracket.
