insomnia59: The Elimination Brackets (LIVE)

by Michael MoriartyDecember 10, 2016

Insomnia59 is trialling out a new bracket system for this LAN. It’s a creation of Jon “ViciousHorizon” Kelly, so no-one really knew what to expect how it’d potentially work. Time for a quick explanation of the bracket system.

Eight Groups of Six
Round Robin
First Round

Bo3 Single-Elimination Knockout

Winners to Next Bracket
Losers to Intermediates

Second Round

Bo3 Double Elimination

Winners to Upper Bracket
Losers to Lower Bracket

Third Round

Bo3 Upper Bracket

Top 3 to Brackets
Bottom 3 to Intermediates
Bo3 Lower Bracket

That’s the format until the final, which is a Bo5 Format. The two UK Masters teams, FM-eSports and Endpoint, enter the tournament in the third round.

So now you’re all up to speed with the “Jon Kelly Special”, let’s get to recapping the first the brackets. This will be updated over LAN to include all scores from each round, so keep an eye on this and Social Media for updates.
