4 rounds of Swiss, Best of Three matches, Riot Lock Format (the format used by seasonals, three decks, no matching region combinations, one deck with no champions allowed, no one champion shared between decks, one ban)
The swiss rounds are followed by a top cut to Top 4/8 (top 4 if 16 or less players registered, top 8 otherwise). The top cut bracket is single elimination, Best of three matches played with the same decks.
For the swiss rounds, players will be allowed a grace period of 10 minutes from the start of each round to reach out to their opponent, and or make their presence known. If a player has reached out to their opponent and not heard from them after 10 minutes, the matter will be investigated, and if the opponent has not reached out or made themselves known, then the missing player will be disqualified and the present player will get a free match win.
The prize pool is at minimum $100 USD split between top 4. For each player's entry, $5.00 goes towards the prize pool, and $1.50 as a registration fee. This means, if a tournament gets more than 20 participants, then for each extra person, there is $5 more on the line.
ie; 8 players means $100 prize pool (out of our pocket mostly,) 20 players is $100 prize pool, 21 players is $105, and so on.
1st: 40% of the pool
2nd: 30% of the pool
3/4th: 15% of the pool each
