Tag Team contest
This competition is going to be a team contest. You can either sign up by yourself and get paired up or sign up with a team mate.
Just leave a reply or send a PM to one of us when you want to join our competition !!
We have a list of all players at the end of this post. It will be updated with every new entry.
The games which will be part of this contest will remain a suprise for now ....
Rules and additional info
It's going to be a double elimination tournament with 3 rounds for seeding. All players will play the same game each round.
Each round lasts a week.
1. Rounds for seeding
We'll have 3 rounds for seeding. So you'll be playing 3 games with your team mate and your score and your team mates score gets added together. The amount of contestants will determine how many points you will get. With 30 contestants the best team will get 30 points and last gets 1 point.
Comparing all the team scores will rank each team for the double elimination tournament.
2. Double elimination brackets
After the seeding rounds it's going to be a double-elimination tournament. The highest ranked team plays the lowest ranked team, the second highest ranked team plays the second lowest ranked team and so on. When there are an odd number of teams in the tournament the highest seeds receive "byes".
Each team begins in the winner’s bracket, but with one loss, goes into a loser’s bracket, where they will have to play their way back. All competitors will have the oppurtunity to play at least twice.
