Team captains will be the people in the middle who will communicate with Tournament Administration and Other Captains on the behalf of their own team. Please make sure to select your team captain before entering into the tournament.
- We ask for captains to be on earlier than their team. This is so they can organise their team and get them on, on time.
- Team Captains will check to see who they are playing against and communicate with the other teams captain to get both their teams into a lobby.
- Team captains will have to save and post the end of game screenshot
The qualifying stage will consist of 4 cups. Each cup will be played out as a single elimination bracket. The results of your previous week(s) matches will be considered and will grant your team a seed into the following week’s matches.
There are eight spots available in the playoffs. A 1st place or 2nd place result in a cup will grant your team passage into the playoffs. Teams that have secured a playoffs spot can no longer play in any further cups.
Single Elimination Bracket
Teams will play in a best-of-one single elimination bracket; this means that losing a match will result in your cup journey ending for the week. By placing in the top 2 of any cups you will advance into the playoffs.
Teams will be seeded based on results in their respective cups. Teams that have won a cup will be seeded between 1 and 4. Teams that place 2nd in a cup will be seeded between 5 and 8. Teams that have a better overall round differential will have a better seed going into the playoffs.
i.e. a team that wins every match 15-0 will have a higher seed than a team who wins every match 15-14.
*Students are able to form teams with other students from other universities/TAFEs
