This Saturday marks the start of the County Championship Finals. It’s been a rough ride but we lost no enthusiasm and we’re finally here after 4 tough qualifiers that left us with eight County teams that will be battling for the prize pool this weekend.
Those teams are:Cumbria Dublin Glamorgan Norfolk Lincoln Leicestershire County Down County Galway
The format for the Finals weekend will be optimized so that players get the most out of the weekend and play as many games as possible.
It’ll start with two groups of four teams each, These groups have been randomised so no seeding comes into play. These are round robin groups so each team plays 3 [...]
As some of you already know if you follow the Steam Group, I asked for some help from players of the County Champs in regards to the format.
You may remember when we originally planned the County Champs we were going to use a 128 team double elimination bracket over 2 weekends. There were multiple problems with this format, for example: teams got one real chance to prove themselves, if they lost 2 Bo1’s they were out and that’s not fun for anyone, especially in a tournament you’ve been waiting months for.

The tournament will still be a 128 team double elimination. There are currently 93 teams created so still a lot of space to add new teams for existing and new counties.
