Information[edit]

Format[edit]

  1. Season 1 of the League will conclude with a global Championship that begins with Round Robin and ends with a Single Elimination StepLadder Bracket.
  2. The Round Robin will support all 6 Championship Teams with each Team playing each other Team in one Game.
  3. In each Round Robin Game, one Team will have Side Choice and the other Team will have Draft Order Choice. Each Team will be randomly set to have Side Choice for 2 or 3 of their Games and Draft Order Choice for 2 or 3 of their Games.
  4. Each Team will accumulate a record of Games Won and Games Lost (Standings) over the course of the Round Robin.
  5. The Teams finishing 1st-4th in the Round Robin Standings will qualify for the StepLadder Bracket. The Teams finishing 3rd-4th in the Round Robin Standings will start in Round 1 of the StepLadder Bracket. The Team finishing 2nd in the Round Robin Standings will start in Round 2 of the StepLadder Bracket. The Team finishing 1st in the Round Robin Standings will start in the Championship Match of the StepLadder Bracket.
  6. All StepLadder Bracket Matches will be Best of 3 Games.
  7. Teams will be seeded for the StepLadder Bracket based on the final Round Robin Standings.
  • Round Robin Tiebreakers

1. If two Teams are tied at the end of the Round Robin, a Game will be added to the Schedule to break the tie.
2. If three Teams are tied at the end of the Round Robin, Games will be added to the Schedule so that all tied Teams play each other in an additional Game to break the tie.
3. If four Teams are tied at the end of the Round Robin, a Single-Game, Double Elimination Bracket will be created to break the tie. The Bracket will be seeded by Time Rating*. The Winners Bracket Final and Losers Round 2 will be the last Matches of the tiebreaker Bracket, yielding the following results:

  1. = Winner of Winners Bracket Final
  2. = Winner of Losers Round 2
  3. = Loser of Losers Round 2
  4. = Loser of Losers Round 1

If Losers Round 2 is set to be played by the eventual #3 and #4 Seeds in the StepLadder Bracket, and their Head to Head record, over the course of the Championship, isn’t tied, the Game will be canceled and the #3 Seed will be awarded to the Team with the better Head to Head record.
4. If five Teams are tied at the end of the Round Robin, a single-Game, Double Elimination Bracket will be created to break the tie. The Bracket will be seeded by Time Rating. The Winners Bracket Final and Loser Round 2 will be the last Matches of the tiebreaker Bracket, yielding the following results:

  1. = Winner of Winners Bracket Final
  2. = Loser of Winners Bracket Final
  3. = Winner of Losers Round 2
  4. = Loser of Losers Round 2
  5. 5 = Loser of Losers Round 1

If Losers Round 2 is set to be played by the eventual #3 and #4 Seeds in the StepLadder Bracket, and their Head to Head record, over the course of the Championship, isn’t tied, the Game will be canceled and the #3 Seed will be awarded to the Team with the better Head to Head record.
5. If added Games fail to break a 3-way tie, the tie will be broken by Time Rating, using only the added Games.

  • Time Rating is calculated by adding Game Length (Minutes and Seconds) for Games won as a negative number to Game Length (Minutes and Seconds) for Games lost as a positive number. The greater number will win all Time Rating Tiebreakers.
