1. Tournament Format: Round-Robin
In a round-robin format, all participating teams play against each other at least once. The team with the highest overall score at the end of the tournament is declared the winner. Here’s an example of how you can structure the matches:
- Each team plays one match against every other team.
- Matches are best-of-one (Bo1).
- Teams earn points based on the outcome of each match:
- Win: 3 points
- Draw: 1 point
- Loss: 0 points
- The team with the highest total points at the end of the round-robin phase advances to the playoffs as the top seed.
- Depending on the number of teams, you can choose to have a playoff phase to determine the final winner.
2. Tournament Format: Double Elimination
In a double-elimination format, teams compete in a winner’s bracket and a loser’s bracket. Teams are eliminated from the tournament when they lose two matches. The winner’s bracket finalist faces the loser’s bracket finalist in the grand finals. Here’s an example of how you can structure the matches:
- Matches in the winner’s bracket are best-of-one (Bo1) until the grand finals, which can be best-of-three (Bo3).
- Matches in the loser’s bracket are typically best-of-one (Bo1) until the loser’s bracket finals, which can be best-of-three (Bo3).
- The winner’s bracket finalist starts with a one-game advantage in the grand finals, meaning they only need to win one best-of-three (Bo3) series to become the champion, while the loser’s bracket finalist needs to win two best-of-three (Bo3) series.
- This format allows teams to have a second chance in the loser’s bracket if they lose a match in the winner’s bracket.
Note: The tournament format can vary based on the number of teams, available time, and your preferences. Feel free to modify or customize the formats mentioned above to fit your specific tournament requirements.
