The multiplayer Titan event is designed to allow both
casual and serious players to participate. The preliminary games
are played Tuesday through Thursday with games starting at 21
Tuesday and 9, 13, 17 and 21 on Wednesday and Thursday. This
remnant of the original 1991 format has been grandfathered into

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.
