General rules

  1. Intermediate Global Taiko Showdown is a 2v2 team tournament with teams of maximum 5 players.
  2. The teams will first play in a group stage and then play in a double-elimination bracket.
  3. The scoring system that will be used is Score V2.
  4. Any player who meets the requirements stated in the rank restrictions part is allowed to play. Since the tournament is aiming to get badged, some players might be declined by osu! staff.
  5. Any members of staff apart from Management, Mappool Selectors, and Referees are allowed to play.
  6. Players and staff members must have read this ruleset entirely. (and we will assume you did so throughout the tournament)
  7. All participants must stay respectful and keep a proper attitude. Not following this rule can result in a ban/blacklist from the tournament. This rule concerns all the staff as well.
  8. Any rule changes or unexpected occurrences will be announced in the thread and in the Discord server.

Rank restrictions

  1. You must be within ranks #3,500 - #10,000 during registrations. This means that you have to be in this rank range until the end of registrations.
  2. You are not allowed to rank up further than #2,500 during the tournament. If you pass this limit you will be disqualified.
  3. You must sign up with the country flag of your profile.
  4. You must join the Discord server of the tournament.

Tournament registration and teams creation

  1. In order to participate you need to meet the criteria stated in the rank restriction part.
  2. Players sign up individually. When their registration is accepted, they will get a country role in the Discord server.
  3. The staff can refuse a player if they deem that the player skill is not fit with the tournament.
  4. This year we are allowing two teams for a country under certain conditions:
    • There are 6 or more players signed up for a country.
    • Each team has to have at least 3 players.
  5. Because of the previous rule, there are going to be different situations to create the teams:
    • If there are five players or less signed up for a country, those players will form the team representing their country.
    • In case there are more than ten players signed up for a country, the top 10 players by ranking will be choosen to form the two teams.
    • If there are six to ten players (after keeping the best ranked ones) signed up for a country, the players from that country will have a few days (precise date in an later announcement) to decide how to split themselves in the two teams.
    • It is recommended to find an agreement as fast as possible to then decide on the captain and be able to schedule and prepare your matches rapidly.
    • In case the players can't find an agreement, they will be ranked by pp and put in the two teams with at least three members in each of them with the best ones in a first team and the lowest in the second.
    • The players will decide on the captain of their team. The deadline for this is a day after the one for forming the teams.
    • If the players can't agree or find a captain, the highest ranked player will be chosen.
  6. The captain is going to be the one to reschedule a match if needed and will ensure that his teammates are here for the matches.

Stage regulations

  1. There are six stages in this tournament: the Group Stage, the Round of 16, the Quarterfinals, the Semifinals, the Finals, and the Grand Finals.
  2. The team will be seeded with the average of the ranks of their 2 highest ranked players in 4 seeds: Top seed, High seed, Low seed, and Unseeded.
  3. In case there are more than 32 registered teams, the teams with only 2 players or the second teams from a country (lower seed) will be considered first to not be participating in the tournament. The ones with the lowest average rank from their top 2 players won't make it.
  4. Teams will be drawn in 8 groups of 4 teams during a drawing show which will take place on Sunday, June 2nd.
  5. In the Group Stage all the teams from each group will face each other. The best 2 teams get out of groups and advance to knockout stage.
  6. Rankings of each group are determined by sorting the results of each team's performance in the following priority:
    1. Most matches won.
    2. Highest (number of beatmaps won - number of maps lost) score.
    3. Most beatmaps won.
    4. Winner of the match played previously between the tied teams.
  7. In Group stage, 'Win by default' will be considered as win by 4:0, +1.0 score difference ratio.
  8. The winning condition for each stage is:
    • Group Stage: BO9 (win 5 maps)
    • Round of 16 and Quarterfinals: BO11 (win 6 maps)
