Rules and Format

Stage 1-) Weekday games
Weekday games are played as a group eliminations. Players will be divided into 4 seeds according to the their standings in the league table. After that they will be placed into 4 groups randomly according to their seed. Group stage games will be played from Monday to Friday and players will decide with their opponents on which day and time they will play their games. Then they will report their scores to a League Moderator. All group games will be played as Best of 3 (BO3). You will play one BO3 vs each player in your group. First 2 of each group will move to the Quarters.

First 2 of the groups will move up to the Quarters. Quarters will be played as Single elimination. All games will be played as Best of Three. Winner of group A will face second of Group D, Winner of Group B will face second of Group C, Winner of Group C will face second of Group B, Winner of Group D will face second of Group A.

– On the standings page the table has four sections Win-Loss-PD(points difference)- Points
-Win is for every game you won. If you won 2-1 , you will get 2 wins. If you lost 1-2 you will get 1 win.
-Loss is for every game you lost. If you lost 1-2, you will get 2 losses. If you won 2-1, you will get 1 loss.
-PD is your (total wins) minus (your total losses). If you have 10 wins 2 losses, your PD is 8.
-Points are awarded according to your placement at that week’s tournament.
1st- 7 points
2nd- 5 points
3rd- 4 points
4th- 3 points
Last 8- 2 points
Last 16- 1 points
-Number of wins,losses and PD is used as tiebreakers in the standings between players who have same amount of points.
Info about group standings:
-Every BO3 you won in your group counts as a set win and they are the main determinant of who moves to next stage.
-You will get 1 group points for every game you won in your group.These points are just there to determine group standings, do not mistake them with tournament points.
-In case of a tie in the group standings among 2 players, the one who has won the game between them will get an advantage. For ex: If both player A and B have 2 set wins and they have the same points, the winner of the A vs B set will have a higher placement in the group.
– In case we have less then 16 players in a league, some groups may need to consist of 3 players. The tournament platform does not allow groups to have 3 people in them. So we add 4th person as —— into the group. All players in the group automatically win their games against —— and they don’t get any points for this win.
