FORMAT: Bo3, 3 Deck Riot Lock. Swiss Rounds Aug 28 (open rounds), Top Cut Aug 29. Due to software limitations, we may need to initially seed two or more brackets which will feed into a top 8 or 16 cut for the final round of day 1.
Between 5-7 swiss rounds will be played on Day 1 with any overflow rounds taking place on Day 2 followed immediately by Top Cut. The number of rounds is subject to change based on the number of participants. Player's will be updated on the exact number of rounds and Top Cut size after check-in ends before round 1 of Swiss.

Being 10 minutes late to a match after after round start in is a game loss
Being 15 minutes late to a match after round start is a match loss and you will be dropped from the tournament unless you message an admin before the next round starts.
Time limit rule will apply: you have 50 minutes to finish a best of 3 match. After 50 minutes a 5 minute overtime period will be given. If there is no winner to the best of 3 after overtime, the player who runs out of overtime first loses the round.
This will be an open deck tournament. You must use the three decks on the tournament's shared spreadsheet. We will share the spreadsheet the morning of the tournament so any errors can be corrected.
If you have any problems, then contact a moderator or talk to your opponent in chat. Take screenshots for verifying and explaining what happened. We cannot help if you do not communicate proof of your issue.
Disconnection Errors and Glitches
Always record a video or take a screenshot of your glitch or disconnect and call a moderator.
Glitches may result in a game reset.

Your SmashGG name and your Discord name MUST be close enough for us to find you on discord if needed.
If something is wrong with SmashGG, then you are expected to use the discord to communicate with the mods for help.
Being kicked or removed from the tournament for any reason is your responsibility. This includes:
Not signing in for any reason.
Messaging any mod for any reason after the start time wondering why you're not signed up.
Not having the same SmashGG and Discord name so we kicked you because we didn't know who you were.
Also See the "rules" section below for additional rules.
In the event the tournament does not conclude before in-game maintenance, then the event must be carried over to the next day, and you will be required to play at THE SAME TIME THE TOURNAMENT STARTED THE DAY BEFORE.
