Each of the 12 timeslots on Qualifying Weekend will allow all players to join and be assigned to a pool of 4 coaches, with the winner of EVERY pool qualifying for the the playoffs, see "schedule" for details!
Once a coach qualifies for the playoffs, they may not participate in any additional qualifiers that weekend.
Format will also be a single elimination brackets, each round is a single game (Best of 1) with 2 minute turns on a 2 hour schedule for each game

Concedes are allowed, but discouraged. Please try to play it out to the end, if you can!

The round will be advanced in-game around 10 minutes before the start time, so if you and your opponent are both ready, you are welcome to start.
Games must be started by no later than 10 minutes of the above start time, if one player is not responding then an automatic loss will be issued. In the unlikely event that the game is not started and both coaches do not respond to the admins, then the admins will randomly assign a win to whichever coach eventually responds first before the next round starts, and if there is still no communication from either team before that time, then the admins will randomly select the "winning" team to move to the next round.
You must check in on start.gg before the first round of the bracket, or you will automatically be removed from that bracket. (Then also check in each round, If you do not check in on time you will be disqualified after 10 minutes, as above.)
If you forget to check in each round on start.gg, but are responding to your opponent and the admins, an automatic DQ issued by start.gg for failure to check in may be reversed, at the sole discretion of the competition admins.
To be eligible to participate, a player must be at least 13 years old (or such other age, if greater, as may be required in such player’s country of residence.)
Sportsmanlike conduct is expected. You are NOT allowed to be disruptive or harass your opponent on Discord, Start.gg, Twitch chat, etc (or any other actions that could be considered unsportsmanlike conduct except for actions intended to be allowed within the game itself as part of normal game-play.) If you do, then your actions may result in a game loss, match loss, or disqualification from the event without prizes, and/or ban from future events, solely at the discretion of the Tournament Staff.
Cheating of any kind will result in disqualification without prizes from the event, and being banned from all future events. If you are in a match where you believe your opponent cheated, please send any evidence you may have to the tournament staff. In addition to Hacking, "CHEATING" ALSO INCLUDES USING ANY BUG OR UNINTENDED EXPLOIT THAT EXISTS IN THE GAME, intentionally or unintentionally - UNLESS Staff has made an announcement to everyone about an exception to this rule. If this somehow happens to you unintentionally, you should immediately alert your opponent and tournament staff - if you don't, you will be deemed to have been Cheating, and you will be disqualified without prizing and banned from all future events.
