  • teams can have 10 minutes late to start the draft, and 30 minutes of preparation between the end of the draft and the match start (it has to begin before the "forfeit" time indicated on the draft)


QUALIFYING ROUNDS


During the rounds, the draft letter for each match is determined as follows: if a team had less often the choice than its opponent in its previous matches, then it has the letter choice for the match. If both teams had so much choice in their previous matches, then the letter choice is randomly assigned.


A victory earns 3 Tournament Points, a draw earns 1 Tournament Point, a defeat earns no Tournament Points. Additional Points are also distributed as defined in the general regulations.


The classification criteria are in order of priority: Tournament Points > Percentage of Victory of Opponents encountered (PVA) > Additional Points > Direct result between the teams. Tie-break games will be held as needed on 3/22/21 8pm.


PLAYOFFS


The 32 best teams in qualifiers are qualified in playoffs. These are structured around a classic combat tree, where the 1st fight the 32nd, the 2nd the 31st, etc.


The confrontations are played in 2 winning matches (BO3). The highest-ranked team in qualifiers has the draft letter choice in games 1 and 3, the other team has it in game 2.
