GROUP STAGE

Four groups of six players will be randomly seeded. Each group will hold a classic snake draft with two ban rounds, one prior to Round 1 and the other between Rounds 3 and 4. Matches will consist of 3 games and be played in a round-robin style. Game ties are allowed. Match wins (i.e. 3-0 or 2-1) will yield 3 group points and match ties will yield 1 group point to both players. The top two players from each group by group points will advance to the Championship Stage.


CHAMPIONSHIP STAGE

Eight players will take part in an auction draft. Each player will have a budget of 200 pokécoins for bid placements. The nomination order will be randomized. Players will alternate nominating a Pokémon and then interested players will place public bids and counter bids until all teams have been filled. Players will then be seeded based on group finish in a double elimination bracket.



SCHEDULES

All drafts will be live with the exact times to be determined based on the availability of the players. Pick time limits will apply to ensure drafts are completed in a reasonable time. Snake drafts for the Group Stage will be held on 9/12 or 9/13, and the auction draft will be held on 9/19. All Group Stage matches will be played off-stream from 9/13 through 9/17 with all recorded matches to be uploaded and featured on a later GO Stadium recap stream. LIVE STREAM SCHEDULE

GROUP STAGE TIEBREAKERS

  1. winner of the head-to-head matchup(s);

  2. most game wins across matches amongst the tied players; then

  3. most game wins across all group matches.

If two players still remain tied, then they will face off in a sudden death game to determine advancement.
