2021 Fall Invitational Qualifier

6

Hello and welcome to the Qualifier Tournament for the 2021 Fall Invitational. The winners of this tournament will fill up the remaining slots in the group stage as well as determine substitutes. Players who have received invites are not eligible to participate (a list of invites can be found here).

This is going to be a 1v1 Double Elimination bracket with BO3 games in the winners bracket and BO1 games in the losers bracket. The bracket will be seeded based on ladder rating. Each BO3 will consist of a 5x5, 10x10, and 20x20, played in that order.

There is no rating requirement or maximum number of signs ups for this tournament, the number of BO1s vs BO3s in the winners bracket will be adjusted to ensure a timely tournament.

All standard tournament rules apply. In the event of a tie in position occurs (ie 7-8th) which is needed to determine whether a player will advance to the group stage, a BO1 will be played to determine who advances. Signups will close 15 minutes before the start time.

Map pool is posted!

I have also added a poll asking if people would prefer a U1500 and U1000 section be created for future seasonal invitationals. I would create separate brackets that would just be for people under U1500 and U1000 ladder. These brackets would just be playing for avatars and wouldn't be part of the main tournament.

This qualifier is the first time there's been significant interest from the U1500 crowd. It wouldn't be a large amount of additional overhead to run separate brackets if people prefer that.
