Bracket Format

1.   The Event will be separated into 3 Stages, an Open Bracket, Group Play, and a Championship Bracket.

2.   The Event will support as many as 232 Players, including 208 Players starting in the Open Bracket and 24 Players starting in Group Play.  Finally, 40 Players, including 16 Players who started in the Open Bracket, and the 24 Players who started in Group Play, will compete in the Championship Bracket.

3.   The Open Bracket will have a Winners Bracket and a Losers Bracket.  After losing a Match in the Open Bracket Winners Bracket, Players will enter the Open Bracket Losers Bracket.  A Match loss in the Open Bracket Losers Bracket will result in elimination from the Event.

4.   The final 8 Players in the Open Bracket Winners Bracket will advance into Group Play.

5.   The final 8 Players in the Open Bracket Losers Bracket will advance into Championship Bracket Losers Bracket Round 1.

6.   Group Play will have four separate Groups, each with their own Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket.  After losing a Match in a Group Play Winners Bracket, Players will enter the corresponding Group Play Losers Bracket.  A Match loss in a Group Play Losers Bracket, or a Group Final Match, will result in elimination from Group Play and placement in the Championship Bracket.

7.   Each Group’s 1st Place Player will be placed into a Championship Bracket Winners Bracket.  Each Group’s 2nd Place Player will be placed into a Championship Bracket Losers Bracket Round 6.  Each Group’s 3rd Place Player will be placed into a Championship Bracket Losers Bracket Round 5.  Each Group’s 4th Place Player will be placed into a Championship Bracket Losers Bracket Round 4.  Each Group’s 5th Place Players will be placed into a Championship Bracket Losers Bracket Round 2.  Each Group’s 7th Place Players will be placed into a Championship Bracket Losers Bracket Round 1.

8.   The Championship Bracket will be separated into two halves, each with their own Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket.  The winner of each half of the Championship Bracket will play in the Final Match.  After losing a Match in a Championship Bracket Winners Bracket, Players will enter the corresponding Championship Bracket Losers Bracket.  A Match loss in a Championship Bracket Losers Bracket, or the Final Match, will result in elimination from the Event.

 

Match Format

1.   All Matches, except for each Group’s Final Match and the Championship Bracket Final Match, will be Best of 3 Games, unless the Players have already played each other in the specific Stage of the Event.

2.   If Players are scheduled to play each other for a 2nd time in a specific Stage of the Event, their Match will expand to a Best of 7, include the previous Match, and pick up where that Match left off.  For example, if Player A beat Player B 2 Games to 0 in their first Group Play Match, their second Group Play Match will expand to a Best of 7 that will resume with Game 3 and Player A leading 2 Games to 0.  If Players are scheduled to play each other in the Championship Bracket and they previously played each other in the Open Bracket or Group Play, their Match won’t expand and include the previous Match.

3.   If the Players scheduled to play each other in a Group Final Match or a Championship Bracket Semifinal Match have not yet played against each other in the specific Stage of the Event, an initial Best of 3 Games Match must be played.  If the Player who came from the Winners Bracket wins the initial Match, they will advance.  If the Player who came from the Losers Bracket wins the initial Match, the Match will expand to a Best of 7, include the initial Match, and pick up where that Match left off.  For example, if the Losers Bracket Player beat the Winners Bracket Player 2 Games to 0 in the initial Match, the Best of 7 will resume with Game 3 and the Losers Bracket Player leading 2 Games to 0.  The winner of a Group Play Final or Championship Bracket Semifinal Best of 7 will advance.

4.   The Championship Bracket Final Match will be Best of 7 Games, between the winners of the Championship Bracket Semifinal Matches.  The winner of the Championship Bracket Final Match will win the Event.

2.   If a Player set to start in Group Play chooses not to participate in the Fall Championship Starcraft 2 Event, and notifies MLG prior to the start of the Event, a Replacement Player will be selected to take their place using Fall Invite-Only Online Qualifier Standings with ties broken by MLG Rank.

12. CTF Games will have an initial time limit of 15 minutes. If the Game Timer reaches

Teams with fewer than four Players are not permitted to start an IS Game and Teams
with fewer than three Players are not permitted to start any Games. If a Team doesn’t
have the required minimum number of Players to start a Match, they will Forfeit
based on the timeline set in General Rules #5. If a Team doesn’t have the required
minimum number of Players to start a Game, 5 minutes after the previous Game has
ended, that Team must Forfeit the upcoming Game. Players are permitted to join
Games that are in progress, however, Players are not permitted to add a Character to a
Game for a Player who is absent.
 
15. Teams must use Split Screen (2 Players per Monitor) in Winners Bracket Rounds 1-
3 and Losers Bracket Rounds 1-4. In all other Rounds, Teams will be allowed to use
Split Screen, Full Screen (1 Player per Monitor), or a combination of both. This is
subject to change based on the number of registered Teams.
 
Game Type Selection
 
1. All Vetoes and Game Type Choices must be made prior to the start of a Match.
 
2. For a Best of 3 Games Match, the higher seeded Team must choose to act as Team
A or Team B. Team A must veto one Game Type first, then Team B must veto two
Game Types, and then Team A must veto one more Game Type. Teams must veto
one IS Game Type and one CTF/KOTH Game Type. The vetoed Game Types will
not be played in the Match. Team B must choose the IS Game Type that will be
played in Game 1. Game 2 will be the CTF/KOTH Game Type that wasn’t vetoed.
Game 3 will be the IS Game Type that wasn’t vetoed and wasn’t chosen for Game 1.
 
3. Best of 7 Games Match - If Game 3 wasn’t played in the Winners Bracket, the Game
will be played using the Game Type that was originally designated for Game 3. The
loser of Game 3 must choose a CTF/KOTH Game Type for Game 4. The loser of

the CTF/KOTH Game Type that the Teams have not yet played against each other.

according to General Rules #5.

2. For a Best of 3 Games Match, the higher seeded Team must decide whether they want
to Host one or two Games. The Team set to Host one Game must choose the Game
that they want to Host first. The other Team must Host the other two Games.
