We’ve taken all of your feedback into consideration. At Tecmo Madison XIV, we are shaking up the format a bit. Please find the updated format below.
Tecmo Madison XIV Format:
4 Regions, 22 groups per Region, 3 players per group.
Round Robin opening rounds.
Round 2 will have a Gold bracket, Silver bracket, and Bronze bracket, each region producing 22 Gold players, 22 Silver players, 22 Bronze players. Gold Bracket competes for the cash prize and Tecmo immortality. The Silver & Bronze brackets compete for consolation prizes. Opening bracket is single elimination. Final bracket stage TBD.
Bracket seeds are determined by record and then point differential. If at the end of the round there is a two-way tie, a deathmatch will be played. If a three-way tie, a 3-man single elimination tourney will be played, where the top seed of the group gets a bye round.
In short, everyone makes the second round and keeps playing.
