    • E.g. A record of WWL will be paired with another WWL player
    • W = Win, L = Loss, T = Tie
    • If no pairs exist, player pairs will be determined by the YGO Tournament Ref
  • Each player will play through 4 rounds

      • E.g. @Player 1 (YGOpro Username 1) (Host) v.s. @Player 2 (YGOpro Username 2) | Table # | Game Name: XXXXXXXXXX | Winner: @Player 1 (YGOpro Username 1)
    • The YGO Tournament Ref will post a list of all the duels for the round at the start of the round, and the host player will then @ the ref in #tournaments-general with the Game Name of the hosted room for the ref to update their Discord message
    • The ref will also update the duel message after a winner has been decided
  • Tournament placement will be calculated using the following formula
    • W = 1.00 | T = 0.75 | L = 0.50
    • Final Score = First Round Outcome _ (1.5) + Second Round Outcome _ (2.0) + Third Round Outcome _ (2.5) + Fourth Round Outcome _ (3.0)
      • First Place: Player with highest Final Score after all rounds have been completed
      • Second Place: Player with second highest Final Score after all rounds have been completed
      • Third Place: Player with third highest Final Score after all rounds have been completed

Tournament Overtime Procedure

  1. After the four rounds have been completed, the three highest final scores will be grouped together (a score can have multiple players attached to it)
  2. If no ties exist, prizes and placements will be delegated as written out in the Tournament Structure
  3. If there are more than 3 players among the three highest final scores, only the placements containing the three available spots will be considered
    1. E.g. If there was 1 person with the highest score, 1 person with the second highest score, and 2 people with the third highest score, all 4 people would be considered for placements
    2. E.g. If there were 2 people with the highest score, 2 people with the second highest score, and 1 person with the third highest score, only the first four people would be considered for placements
    3. E.g. If there were 4 people with the highest score, 1 person with the second highest score, and 1 person with the third highest score, only the 4 people tied for highest score would be considered for placements
  4. Tiebreakers will be determined first based on the final scores of players they defeated / tied in the four previous rounds
    1. All of the final scores of the players that the tiebreakers have defeated / tied will be summed together.
    2. The placements are then decided by the highest-to-lowest listing of the summed final scores of the players defeated / tied by the tiebreaker participants
    3. E.g.
      1. Player 1: Final Score of 10 (First Place)
      2. Player 2: Final Score of 9 (Combined Opponent Score of 25) (Second Place)
      3. Player 3: Final Score of 9 (Combined Opponent Score of 22.5) (Third Place)
      4. Player 4: Final Score of 9 (Combined Opponent Score of 19) (No Place)
    4. If there exists a tie at the Combined Opponent Score level, then all players at that placement will receive the prize of the placement they tied at
