Beginner's Guide to Tournaments

This guide is mainly for people who have never entered one of our tournaments before. However, it can also help those who have entered once or twice but don’t fully understand the format.

Standard Format – Double Elimination

Unless specified, all our tournaments are double elimnation. DE tournaments have a winners and losers bracket. On the OzHadou bracket (see below) we all start in the middle of the page in the winners bracket (where the numbers are) and depending on the result of your match you will either progress further to the right (winners) or be moved to the left (losers). As the bracket is played out, players are moved around the bracket either towards the winners side final if they are winning or thrown into the loser’s side where they will progress towards the losers side final.
