Ok, so this tournament is going to work like this:

Because there is more than 64 players and less than 128 (There are 88 in total), the top 24 players in terms of pp have automatically qualified for the main bracket. Everyone else is seeded in terms of their pp, the top seed is top 16, high seed is next 16, low seed is next 16 and no seed is last 16 players. The top 5 players in each group will qualify which means there are 40 qualified people in total. Then there will be a standard single elimination bracket with the remaining 64 players.

Since you are in the "Low" seed, you will play 3 games. One with a Top seed player, one with a High seed player and one with a No seed player. This system is used for big tournaments to prevent the best teams from knocking each other out early on, which means that the final games will be much more close and exciting.

If you get in the top 5 of your Group, you will qualify for the main tournament with the 40 people who qualified through the group stage, and the 24 people who automatically qualified, making 64 people total.

(Sorry if this is a bad explanation)

The tourney will be continuing after New Zealand and Australian holidays (1 week difference) but matches will be scheduled on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays.

Also, you can forfeit after the match schedule is out, that way you get to see if you really cant make the time. Unless you have other motives for quitting after the holidays.

The top 5 players in each group will qualify which means there are 40 qualified people in total.How is the fifth player determined, since there are only four matches per group? The loser with the highest number of wins? Like if one loser gets 3/7 wins in their match, and all other losers get 2/7 or lower, the 3/7 loser becomes the 5th of the top 5?

Is there any place we can bet on the matches?There will be no official betting organised by anzt3 staff but there's nothing stopping you from privately betting.

Still cant get my head around how this bracket works :/Ok. So you're in group D, in the low seed. There are 4 different seeds (Top, High, Low and No) with 2 people in each seed. The "Top" seed has the 2 people with the highest ranks in your group. The "High" seed has the 3rd and 4th, and so on. You are in the "Low" seed, so that means out of the 8 people in your group, you are the 5th or 6th highest rank on your group.

Since you are in the "Low" seed, you will play 3 games. One with a Top seed player, one with a High seed player and one with a No seed player. This system is used for big tournaments to prevent the best teams from knocking each other out early on, which means that the final games will be much more close and exciting.

If you get in the top 5 of your Group, you will qualify for the main tournament with the 40 people who qualified through the group stage, and the 24 people who automatically qualified, making 64 people total.
