Always a Titanic Struggle ...
The multiplayer Titan event is designed to allow both
casual and serious players to participate. The preliminary rounds
are played Tuesday through Thursday with games starting at 18
and 22 Tuesday and 10, 14, 18 and 22 on Wednesday and Thursday.
On Friday at 10 the top 16 players in the preliminary rounds
will play semifinal games and on Saturday at 10 the four semifinal
winners will play the Final.

Players may play in more than six games, but as an eliminator
The ranking for advancement to the semifinals is as follows:
The qualifying tie breakers, in order, are firsts, seconds,
thirds, fourths, titan kills, opponents' firsts, opponents' seconds,
opponents' thirds, opponents' fourths, opponents' titan kills,
lowest game number of the last game started, lowest tower number
of the last game started. However, finishing last in a 3- or
4-player game will NOT credit you with a third or fourth, respectively.
This system makes ties an impossibility.
