As for the format of the season, we are planning on having three divisions, each with thirteen players. The tentative seeding for the playoff bracket will be as follows:
Seeds 1-3: The 1-seeds from each of the three divisions, sorted first by match record, and then game win PCT. **
Seeds 4-6: The 2-seeds “…” ***
Seeds 7-9: The 3-seeds “…” **
Seeds 10-12: The 4-seeds and 5-seeds will participate in a best-of-5 play-in match. The seeds will be predetermined by the 4-seed’s match record and game win PCT. **
** The next tiebreak will be determined by RNG.
*** Since this tiebreak actually matters (only for the overall 4-seed), there will be a Bo5 match(es) between the tied competitors.
As previously alluded to, the three 1-seeds as well as the highest 2-seed will be receiving a round 1 bye in our playoff bracket. The rest of the bracket will be a standard twelve-man single elimination bracket.
The actual divisions will be released soon!
