      • Teams must check-in before bracket begins.

      • Please use the Battlefy match chat to communicate with the other team. Go to your active match (on the tournament page, your Match Dashboard, or the bracket itself) and use the chat on the match reporting page. If the other team doesn't respond, let us know on Discord.

    Introducing the tiered bracket system!!!!

    Here's how this will work:
    -We'll start off the tourney with the group stage, as per usual. That part will not change at all.
    -After group stage, teams will be separated into one of three (dependent on sign-ups, it could be two or it could be more) brackets based on group placement:



      • Top 32 --> Move on to Alpha bracket (a new name for the top 32 cut we've seen before, it is not any different otherwise)
      • Middle 32 --> Move on to Beta bracket (the middle ground for teams that finish third or fourth in their group)
      • Bottom 32 --> Move on to Gamma bracket (for teams that finish 5th or 6th in their group)
    Depending on sign-ups, the above scenario will be adjusted, and there is no guarantee there will be a clean cut for the Beta or Gamma brackets. But we are testing this out in hopes that teams can get additional matches in and a chance at redemption if you don't perform as well as you'd like during the group stage
