Playoff Rules

7/68 Format

  • Battles will last 10 minutes max.
  • All maps are dual cap attack/defense mode.
  • There are two sides on each map: attacker and defender:
    • Attacker wins if their team is able to 1) cap one enemy base or 2) destroy all enemy tanks with at least one attacking tank left
    • Defender wins if their team is able to 1) successfully defend both capture points from the attacker and survive for the full 10 minute timer or 2) kill all enemy tanks
  • The order of battle for non-broadcast and broadcast matches are:
    • Map 1: attack, defend
    • Map 2: attack, defend
    • Map 3 Attack, defend
    • Map 4: attack, defend
  • All matches will be best of 9.
  • If teams are tied after 8 battles, there will be a sudden death tiebreaker match. Please see Tiebreaker below for tiebreaker rules.

Playoff Map Selection

  • Non-broadcast matches and Broadcast matches:

Once brackets are created, the admin will contact the two team captains via forum PM to arrange for a coin flip time to take place to determine seeding. Top Seed (winner of the flip) will be Team A, non winner of the flip will be Team B. Team listed on top of bracket will call the coin flip. 

Note that if a team does not reply to the admin with any issues with the coin flip time or does not show at the designated coin flip time then the opposing team will win the flip automatically. If both teams do not show a default flip will be made and determination of winner will be based on that flip at the admins discretion. 

  • Winner of the coin flip has the option of first ban (Team A) or role choice (Team B).
  • Team A will ban one map from the pool of 8. Team B will ban second map, Team A will ban third map, Team B will ban fourth map.
  • Team A will then chose the first starting map of the 4 remaining, while Team B will chose the role they will play first on that map.
  • Team B then picks the second map from the 3 remaining, and Team A picks its role for this map
  • Team A then picks the 3rd map to play from the remaining 2, Team B picks their role on map 3
  • Team B by default has picked the last map as only one remains, Team A picks the role for the last map.
