Tournament Structure


Open Play

Starting at 5PM on Friday, Open Play begins on Planet Ars Victor! The last open play matches must start no later than 11 AM on Sunday.

We structure the tournament to encourage as many games as possible during the two-day open play period. Every game you play helps you qualify for the finals -- even ones you lose! Here's how players are ranked:
  • By total games won
  • Ties broken by total games played
  • Ties broken by total glory from won games
Here's what the leaderboards looked like from past tournaments:

The only restriction is that any two given players may only have a single ranked match. You can play each other as much as you want, but only the first game you play together counts towards the rankings.



Throughout the tourney, we'll be constantly updating the leaderboard. You'll always know how close you are to the prize.

On Sunday at 2PM, those top players compete in the single-elimination playoffs. Previous tournaments have taken the top 8 players; it may be expanded to 16 at our discretion. The brackets will be seeded according to the following diagrams:
The final winner gets the $400 first place prize, and the runner-up receives $100.

Here's what the final brackets looked like in the last two playoffs:
