**The L97 Guild Cup follows a procedure unlike previous L97 events! Read this section carefully!**
The L97 Guild Cup will keep track of both individual performances and guild performances. In order to accommodate guild scoring, the traditional L97 scoring system has been modified to ensure fair competition. Participants DO NOT have to belong to a Battledome guild to participate. Participants unaffiliated with a guild will be part of the "Rogue Squad", and scored together as if they were a guild on the guild scoreboard. In order for a guild to be recognized in this event, it must have at least three members signed up.
The event has two parts. The Guild Cup begins with a classic pool play, and the pool phase will be followed by a double-elimination bracket. Everyone who battles in the pool phase will be randomly placed in the double-elimination bracket. Battles in the double-elimination bracket are worth more than battles in the pool phase. Continue reading for more details.
-The first portion of this event will be pool play. Participants will be divided into pools of 8 to 10 battlers. Every effort will be made to avoid placing participants of the same guild in a pool together. Participants will battle each opponent in the same pool three times. Scoring during pool play is as follows:
-Wins: 2 points to the victor
-Draws: 1 point to each participant
-Following the pool phase, ALL participants will be randomly placed into a double elimination bracket. However, battlers that did not play a single battle in the pool phase will be dropped from the event for inactivity. Once again, every effort will be made to avoid having members of the same guild face off in the first round of the bracket. Match-ups in the double elimination bracket will be best two-out-of-three. In the event that participants are tied after three battles, the participants will continue to battle until a victor has emerged. Participants that lose a match-up will fall into the losers' bracket. Participants that lose a second match-up are eliminated from the event. The event ends when all but one participant have lost two match-ups. Scoring during the double elimination bracket is as follows:
-Wins: 4 points to the victor
-Draws: 2 points to each participant
-Note that in match-ups involving members of the same guild, the victor is awarded 8 points; the loser is awarded no points. This scoring ruling is done to prevent members of the same guild from running up the score.
-In addition, the following bonus points will be awarded to the top finishers' guilds in the double elimination bracket:
