Welcome, we’d like to introduce you to the first ever WFF tournament organized by SHC! where 16 teams will fight in a double elimination bracket for a juicy 150 euros prize pool.
How does Double Elimination work?
Everyone starts at the first bracket (winners’ bracket). After the first round, when half of the teams lose, they will be dropped down to the second bracket (loser bracket). When you lose 2 times in this tournament you’re out. So when you are already in the second bracket, and you lose another match, you will be eliminated from this tournament. At the end of the tournament, you have two teams left: one is the winner of the winners’ bracket, who have never lost and one is the winner of the losers bracket, who has just one loss. They will play each other; if the winners bracket team wins, the tournament is over. But if the losers bracket wins, they now have both 1 loss and they will face each other once again!
How the seed will work?
The teams will be divided in 2 groups, Champions and Challengers. In the Champions group there will be 8 teams that should be considered the best based on previous results, while in the Challengers group there will be the rest of the teams. In the first round Champions and Challengers will be matched against each other randomly, the winner of these matches will advance where the loser will be dropped in to the loser bracket.
How many maps will we play?
We will make a list of 50 maps total, every team is able to pick 5 maps of this list, so we will play 10 maps total every match. These maps will be played during the match, if the two teams got a similar same map chosen, then we’ll suggest both teams to pick 1 other map where they both agree about. Everyone is able to practice those maps in our training server.
