- There will be qualifier lobbies open throughout the qualification weekend; players can sign up for whichever lobby fits their schedule.
- Each lobby can hold up to
**15 players.** - Each lobby will have 1 assigned referee.
- The lobby will play through the entire map pool
**once**, and your score after every map will be recorded. - Failed scores will count as
**zero**points; if a player revives before the end of the map, their score will count as normal. **Players are not directly competing with the other players in their lobby**.- Players will be given points based on their performance on each qualifier map. The best score on a map earns a player 1 point, the second best 2 points, etc.
**Players' points on each map are added up to produce a total point score.****The players with the lowest total point scores will advance to either Group Stage or RO64**

- A referee will make the lobby 15 minutes before the match. Players must be online to receive their invites.
- If a player does not show up by
**10 minutes**after the scheduled match start time,**they lose their ban(s)**. - If a player does not show up by
**15 minutes**after the scheduled match start time,**they forfeit the match and are blacklisted from the next iteration of Dio's Bizarre Tournaments**. **If a player gives prior notice that they cannot make their match, staff will attempt to reschedule the match with their opponent.**However, there is no guarantee a reschedule will be successful. Additionally, staff will not blacklist the player from the next iteration of Dio's Bizarre Tournaments.- Each player gets
**1 ban from RO64 to RO16**and**2 bans from QF to GF**. Banned maps are effectively removed from the mappool for that match. - Both players can ban 2 maps of the same mod pool. However, from QF to GF,
**a player may not use both their bans on the same mod pool**unless they double-ban nomod. - Each player has 120 seconds to pick/ban a map. After the choice has been made, players have 30 seconds to ready up for the map.
- Failed scores will count as zero.
- In the case of a genuine disconnection in the first 30 seconds of the map, the map may be replayed.
**This can only be used once in a match per player.**If a player disconnects on the same map twice in a row or on two different maps, they must deal with the consequences of their disconnect. This rule is to prevent abuse through manually leaving the game after missing on a map. - On FM, both players
**must use Hidden, Hard Rock, Easy, and/or Flashlight.** **Scores with the Easy modification will be multiplied by 1.75.**- You are allowed to use, but not required, to use any of the above mods on the tiebreaker.

- In the event of a group stage, there will be
**16 groups of 5 players**, with the**top 2 players from each group advancing**to the subsequent RO32. - A referee will make the lobby 15 minutes before the match. Players must be online to receive their invites.
- If a player does not show up by
**10 minutes**after the scheduled match start time,**they lose the match**. - Each player gets

**BWS, or Badge Weighting Seeding**, is a method that**seeds players more accurately**based on the**number of badges they have**, and enforces rank restrictions based on the player's number of badges.- In other words,
**BWS "ranks up" players**based on the number of badges they have. - In terms of how much a player ranks up per badge,
**each badge is worth more**than the one before it. - The formula (originally by steve_04, but modified to be more aggressive) is as follows:
**BWS rank = rank^(0.99^(badges*(badges+2)/2))** - The rank cap is
**1.00 BWS**. You cannot go further than this. - This is
**not**a measure of skill. Read the first bullet point again. - Sample values of the BWS formula can be found here.
