The first TWO rounds will actually be a round robin if we have over 34 players. Players will be broken into groups of four (depending on numbers, we may have one group of six). You will play every one in your group once (or three people if in the group of six). The specific scenarios will be selected at a later date, check the tournament website.
The top player in every group will automatically advance to the next round. The runner-ups from the groups will fill the spots to make the single elimination rounds four or eight players. The second round will be single elimination if we have 34 or less; otherwise four will advance to elimination rounds after a second round robin.
The elimination rounds will be a strict ladder (1 plays 8, 2 plays 7). Assignment to a ladder position will be semi-random. All 3-0 winners will be randomly assigned the top positions.
The elimination rounds will be two-game matches against the same opponent.
