This is the second of our 2021 Quarterly Challenge Companion Tournaments and will be played on the Cricket map! There is only one official companion tournament for this challenge, but sign-ups are unlimited. Games will be played on the map and settings needed to receive tokens for Quarterly Challenge #2.
Format All players will be split into equally sized divisions of no more than 8 players. Players will be assigned divisions based on seeding (seeding is based on scores at time of tournament start).
The first part of the tournament will be a round robin, with players competing against all other members of their division in a match of two games (one on each of the player's home settings). Each game will be worth 1 point. Matches will be sent out twice per week, one on Sunday and one on Wednesday.
Once all the round robin games are complete (or the final standings are locked), the top 4 players for each division will go into playoff matches, consisting of 3 games each (the higher seed gets the extra home game). Player #1 will fight player #2 in the finals qualifying match, with the winner moving on to the finals and the loser going on to the semi-finals. Player #3 will fight player #4 in the quarter-finals, with the winner fighting the loser of the finals qualifying match in the semi-finals. The semi-final winner and the finals qualifying match winner play for the top spot in the division.
The final stage of the tournament will have all division winners moving onto a final bracket, where players will once again be seeded, this time by the total record in the tournament. In the event of a tie, original starting score will determine the higher seed. Matches in this stage of the tournament will be the best of 5 with the higher seed having the extra home game. The winner will win the tournament! See, simple.
Signups Players will sign up with a home settings choice (picked from the available list). NO combining escalating and trench!
