Tournament format

The Pinnacle Fall Series will take place in three stages. The first is the Regional Swiss stage, the second is the Main Swiss stage, and lastly, there will be a single-elimination Playoff stage.

What is the Swiss-system tournament format?

The Swiss-system is a tournament format that gives all teams a fair chance to progress to the elimination stages of a tournament. It gives teams the opportunity to play equally balanced matches against other teams with the same match score and doesn’t eliminate a team from a tournament after two losses, unlike other traditional formats.

The Regional Swiss stage will see 16 teams invited to compete for eight qualification spots in the Main Swiss stage. Each team that progresses into the Main Swiss stage will also be awarded $2,000 of prize money for the effort.

The Main Swiss stage will see 16 teams competing, eight from the Regional Swiss stage and eight receiving direct invites. Like the previous stage, eight qualification spots (for the Playoff stage) will be up for grabs. Each team that earns a qualification into the Playoff stage will earn $3,000.

The single-elimination Playoff stage will feature 12 teams in total; four teams will receive direct invites to this stage while the remaining eight teams will have qualified from the Main Swiss stage. For teams that make it past the first round of the Playoff stage, $1,000 will be added to their prize purse while the overall winner will earn the first-place prize of $40,000.
