Tournament Structure:

The tournament structure is going to be Double-Elimination with the following:

Matchups will be seeded (using 1v1 ladder) to streamline eliminations.

Maps Selection & Faction Veto:

The event will have a 15 map pool; however, the BO1 rounds will have a map selected by the TD. The BO3 rounds WILL have a map veto.

This tournament WILL have faction veto ONLY in the semi and final matches.

For the BO1 rounds, a single map will be selected that all players play.
For the BO3/BO5 rounds, maps will be decided by the map veto process.

Map Veto Process

In order to select the maps played for each BO3, the two participants in each stage will discuss amongst themselves which maps they would like to veto. Each player will be given the right to 3 vetoes and the bottom player in the bracket will be given the first veto. Each player will also submit vetoes sequentially. Once the list is down to 9 maps, the players will be given the right to pick which of the nine they wish to play. The bottom seed will be given the right to pick the first map and the top seed will pick the second.

In the case of a tie, the players will veto down to a single map with the bottom seed having the first veto.
