Tournament Format: The 1st and 2nd Game Evolution Tournament Qualifiers will be played as double elimination brackets (best of three (3) games) until the final eight (8) Players remain. These two (2) tournaments will be played on separate dates and in separate locations (TBA). The top five (5) Players of each qualifier will be invited to the Game Evolution International Tournament. Additionally, one (1) double elimination bracket tournament qualifier will be held in each GCC country, at which point they will be combined with the ten (10) invited Players into a sixteen (16) Player tournament. There will be one round (best of three (3) games) to split players into two (2) different brackets. These are the Game Evolution International Upper Bracket and the Game Evolution International Lower Bracket. Winners in the Upper Bracket move forward in the tournament and are subsequently paired, while losers of the Upper Bracket are moved into the Lower Bracket. Winners in the Lower Bracket move forward in the tournament and are paired with losers from the Upper Bracket. Losers in the Lower Bracket are eliminated. This process is continued until there is a winner for each bracket who will compete in the Game Evolution International Grand Finals (best of (5) games) until a Champion is declared.
Match Scheduling: All matches schedules are available on the website, listed by the tournament bracket. If a Team needs to reschedule, they must contact their opponent and confirm a new match time. If both Teams agree to reschedule the match within 48 hours of the original match time, both Teams must alert the Tournament Administrator and have the reschedule approved.
