We will be following ALL PSP rules regarding our tournament, EXCEPT that our D4 Race to 2 division WILL NOT ALLOW COACHING.
So, to answer your question (assuming there are 12 teams in D3 Race to 4):
Division is split into two (2) 6 Team Brackets. Each team will play each other team in the bracket once, except the top-seeded team will not play the 6th-seeded team, the 2nd-seeded team will not play the 5th-seeded team, and the 3rd-seeded team will not play the 4th-seeded team. This guarantees 4 total preliminary matches per team.
Top 6 teams advance. Top team from each bracket will receive a bye directly to Semi-Finals Round. Seeds 3, 4, 5, & 6 will play a Quarter Finals Round. All rounds after Preliminary Round are single-elimination. Winners of Quarter Finals matches will advance to play in the Semi-Finals. Winners of Semi-Finals will advance to Finals (with losers playing for 3rd & 4th place).
Remember, there is a 12 team cap on the division to allow for this tournament to run properly. So sign up and pay to guarantee your spot in the fight!
