- 7 rounds of 8-player pods, following the same structure as Day One.
- After all rounds are complete, the 8 players with the highest points cut to the Top 8 race.
Top 8 Race
- Players' points reset at the start of the Top 8.
- The Top 8 is a “race” format over several rounds:
- After earning 10 points, players become “live” to win the event.
- The Top 8 continues until a “live” player takes a 1st-place in a match.
- Once that occurs, they are the winner of the event and the remaining players are sorted by points for standings.
Sometimes players cannot be cleanly divided into full 8-player pods. The previous 'byes' system is being replaced for the Fall Season, starting with this event.
- Each round we will calculate the "modulo 8" (the remainder after splitting the players into sets of 8).
- The bottom X players are determined according to points.
- There will be a maximum of 1 total bot per round.
- Players who have already played in a bot pod will not be assigned to another one.
- Pods will then be generated based on the following chart:
|# Modulo||Pod Structure|
|0||All 8-player pods|
|7||One 8-player pod with 1 bot|
|6||One 6-player pod (no bots)|
|5||One 6-player pod + one 8-player pod with 1 bot|
|4||Two 6-player pods (no bots)|
|3||Two 6-player pods + one 8-player pod with 1 bot|
|2||Three 6-player pods (no bots)|
|1||Three 6-player pods + one 8-player pod with 1 bot|
Note: This tournament will be slightly different because the new system requires an engineering code change that will not be live yet. Starting in August, we will have the ability to create actual 6-person pods (no bots). For the July SBBMonthly, these will be 6-person pods with 2 bots. The scoring for these will be the same as 6 player pods listed above, and bot finishes will be ignored (e.g. if a player finishes 7th behind a bot, that's the same as a 6th).
Scoring is determined by the lobby size. 8-player lobby scoring is consistent with prior events. 6-player lobby scoring has been adjusted for the difference in sizes.
