event summary

  • Swiss Round BO1 matches are 23 minutes long and Top Cut BO3 matches are untimed long (these times include the Check In timer) The Top Cut is untimed since it is a Single Elimination Bracket until a winner is found. When both players finish their game, they can play their next opponent. Please write in chat when both players are paired against each other. In the event of inactivity from a player in an untimed top cut match, a Game Loss will occur for each 5 mins a player hasn't responded to their opponent.
