Map and round rules
Maps are decided by elimination in games that are now on the stream, whoever eliminates first in the first set of maps selection elims first if a decider is needed. Every round will be normal ABBA style with a decider played if needed. However, games on the stream will have a different way of map selection where the viewers get to pick the maps, including any deciding maps. Warwitch will shoutcast the UB Final, LB Final and Grand Final and will use a coin toss to decide who elims first on these games.
Round Rules: First round, if 8 teams sign up, will be single elimination. After that the semi finals onwards will be double elimination. We are trying to find the best mix of competition, fun, and casting enjoyment and I think in our last cup it worked out perfectly in terms of casting time, viewer experience and how long the cup takes overall. The last casts have lasted 6-8 hours and we managed to bring it down to around 4 which is great.
