Finals Schedule Outline
July 11th, CrabTowne
12:30PM – side tournament begins on BK2000. First entry is free, each additional entry is 2$. One game, no finals, winner takes all, unlimited attempts.
1PM- check in for ALL DMV players. Unlike last finals where their was a staggered time for A,B and C division. All DMV players are requested to show up at 1PM to check in.
1:15 – 1:30 PM- all checked in players will be entered into the league software and drawn into random groups for one last jockey for position. Players will play one game in random groups with regular league scoring 3,2,2,1/3,2,1/3,1 depending on if it’s a 4,3 or 2 player group. 2PM. A division finals are set. Top 16 players are in A division, if some of the top 16 are not in attendance the highest B division players will have the option of playing in A or remaining in B.
2:15 PM- all remaining players will start the B division tournament. No C division. B division tournament will have seeding advantages. (See below for details)
6PM – estimated conclusion of B division
6:30 PM – estimated conclusion of A finals7PM – estimated conclusion of the side tournament ( side tournament will conclude once the final 4 in A division have an opportunity to play one side tournament entry should they choose to.)
B Division Finals
Once A division is set the next 16 players will be the B division seeds. They will play in four-4 player groups, one game, seed chooses game, lowest finisher in each group goes to a last chance play in game. If your not in the top 16 in B you will be playing elimination games down to 4 remaining. The 4 survivors of the rest of the pack will play one head to head games against the 4 lowest finishers in the 4 player groups to finalize 16 players in B.
Once we’re down to 16 players in B, first round is 4 -4 player groups, one game, lowest finisher in each group is eliminated. Then round 2 is four, 3 player groups, one game lowest finisher is eliminated. Then round 3 is two, 4 player groups, one game, lowest finisher is eliminated. Round 4 is two, 3 player groups, lowest finisher is eliminated. Round 5 is two, two player groups, one game, lowest finisher is eliminated. Round 6 is the final two, one game for the victory.
Higher seed always chooses game or order. One player can only choose the same game twice.
With seeding being so important it’s important to know the tie-breaker rules.
If two players are tied for points their is a series of tie-breakers.
As an example, Jon Horner currently has 54 points and Shannon Schreier has 53 points. If Shannon can make up one point on Jon they would be tied on points and it would go to a tie-breaker. Both Jon and Shannon have 2 weeks at 12 points so it would go to the second tie breaker. Shannon’s first 12 was in week one, Jon’s first 12 was in week 4 so Shannon would be the higher seed due to tie-breaker.
July 30-August 2nd, 2015
