For this new year and our first PS5 tournament, we want to do something different! !
We used to make single elimination brackets but they are too drastic and some teams can be eliminated in the first round without proving themselves.
So we thought about a system that will give more fun to the organizer and the players and grow the chance of every participating teams to win !
So we focused on 3 elements :
- The duration of the tournament
- The excitement of the games
- Number of games to play
This is why we decided to go for the format! Round Swiss !
We see you coming… no, we don’t copy the NBA2KLEAGUE, we had thought long before about this Swiss format 😉
The Royal Rumble tournament will be our first PS5 Tournament and we will use the Round Swiss format !
- Based on the number of participants, we will determine a number of rounds to play.
- Every teams will have to play only one serie of 2 matchs (Home, Away) Each round
- Each round will have to be played before a deadline (1 or 2 days) between each round
- After the last round, all teams will be ranked by their scores.
- The TOP 4 Teams will be sent into a single elimination bracket where they will play each round on BO3 and the final will be played on BO5
