The Dofus World Cup begins with Swiss rounds qualifier with all teams.
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 > Best team defeated.
Not being present on the draft of the first round leads to an immediate discalification of the tournament. For the rest, the rule of elimination after 2 forfeits is maintained.
The 64 best teams in qualifiers are qualified in playoffs. These are structured around a classic combat tree, where the 1st fight the 64th, the 2nd the 63rd, etc.
Until the quarter finals, the matches are played in 2 winning games (BO3). The semi-finals and the final are played in 3 winning games (BO5).
The highest ranked team in the qualifiers has the choice of the draft letter for the odd games, and the other team has it for the even games.
From match 2, the drafts must be thrown within 10 minutes of the end of the previous game, without possible delay.
The final will be played in a LAN, at the Espot Paris, on Saturday June 24th at 3pm.
The KTA will pay up to 200€ per player for travelling expenses. A transfer of the budget of a player for another of the team could be considered depending on the situation. Any additional costs will either be paid by the participants or deducted from their share of the cash prize.
At least one member of each team must be able to attend the event. If a team is unable to attend, it will be disqualified and will not receive any award from the tournament. In this case, the team they beat in the semi-final will be called back for a retake. If this new team is unable to attend, then another team will be called back in the part of the tree of the absent team, with as criterion elimination phase > ranking in rounds.
