The Tespa Collegiate Series: Heroes consists of two phases: the Regular Season and the Playoffs. Registration closes February 27th, 2019 @ 11:59 PM PST.
Teams will play against one another in a Swiss-system consisting of six (6) weekly game assignments, with two (2) best-of-three matches per week. Every Monday, the matches will be assigned to teams. Each match is assigned a default match time, which will take place during one of two time slots on the following Sunday. Matches can be played earlier if both Team Managers or Captains agree and they document the agreement in writing (for e.g. a screenshot of the in-game chat, email, etc.).
The top sixty-four (64) teams from the Regular Season Leaderboard will be seeded into a Round-of-64 bracket. Round-of-8, Semifinals, and Grand Final matches will be played in a best-of-five format, wherein the first team to win three games will win the match. Teams will fight for prizing in this final elimination bracket.
