  • Qualifying rounds will be organized as randomly-seeded tourneys with a maximum of 32 teams entered in each qualifying event.
  • Each round will be played on a different day over a three-week period.
  • Each round's matches consists of up to three games. The first team to win two games wins the match.
  • Officials will be available for one hour on each day during the event at each of three different times: 8:00, 14:00, and 20:00 (all times Pirate Standard Time).
  • It is up to the competing teams to arrange a mutually beneficial time to meet.
  • Matches may be postponed for up to two days if necessary, but must be fought at least one day before the next round is scheduled to begin.
  • An official must be present at each match.


  • Competitors must arrive ten minutes prior to their match.

  • Teams consist of three primaries and an alternate. Only the four registered members of the team may participate in any match.
  • If a team does not have three members present for a match, they may choose to fight shorthanded in a two vs. three or one vs. three match
  • If no members of a team are present when the match begins, then the other team wins their match by default.
