Format & Rules

Provisional Ranking Round-robin League

A twelve-player online round-robin league. Matches are best of three rounds, best of five games. In the case of a tie in rankings, order is determined by the players’ game win-loss difference, with one game counting as one point. For example, a 3-0 victory counts as +3, while a 2-3 loss counts as -1. If there is still a tie, the winner of the match between the two players claims the higher ranking.

The top four players will automatically advance to the upper finals league. Fifth through tenth place will advance to the lower finals league. Eleventh and twelfth place drop from competition, falling to B League.

Finals League Ranking Competition

Provisional ranks fifth through tenth place will play in the lower finals league. The top two players from this league will join provisional ranks first through fourth place to make up the upper finals league. Tenth place will fall to B League, while eighth and ninth place must play in the replacement playoff after the next season’s B League.

Offline round-robin leagues. Matches are best of three rounds, best of thirteen games, with deuce rules to ten wins. In each match, the player with the higher provisional ranking begins with a one-game advantage. Two characters are allowed, with mid-match switches allowed every three-game interval for the losing player within that interval. In the case of a tie in rankings, order is determined by the winner(s) of the match(es) between the involved players. If there is still a tie, order is determined by game win-loss difference.
