CL Knockout Format Test: 5/4/2022 09:00:20

There has been some interest in turning CL from a Promotion/Relegation League into a Knockout/Playoff style league. Before I will even consider this I will need to see how this does in testing. I will need 8 clans to volunteer. The 8 clans will be divided into 2 groups where they will play in a double elimination bracket to qualify for playoffs. The top 2 of each group will play in the playoffs.

I will need lineups for 4 1v1s and 1 2v2. I will announce templates when all clans have signed up. I may also consider a template ban system, but we will see about that.

The idea is CL would look something similar to this :

If this idea is successful, would all 28 clans participate in the same tournament or we would have like 8 clans per division/group.

@marcus every body would have a chance to compete for first. Doing groups just allows us to avoid a 1 and done situation for clans, without having to do a full-blown double Elim bracket.
If you look up at the example above it allowed KRU Esports to make a top 4 run, despite losing their first game.

Wanted to sign-up, but too tough competition.
Will this work for whole clans or for individual players/ slots?

I think that clans can have multiple groups, for example Hawks 1, Hawks 2 (or they name it like they name NBA or NFL teams like "Discovery '16ers" or "Fahrenheit Heat"?)

British Raj, Post Melt Antartica

TEMPLATE SELECTION AND VETO:
Clans will rank the templates from favorite to least favorite. The least favorite will be "vetos" that will knock 4 out of 8 1v1s, and 2 out of 3 2v2s. The highest seed will always get second pick.

Example -
Seed 1
Biomes of America
Strat ME
Post Melt Antartica

French Brawl
Hannibal at the Gates
Guiroma

Seed 2                        
Post Melt Antartica    
Biomes of America
French Brawl
Strat ME
Hannibal at the Gates
Malvia
British Raj
Guiroma

SEED 2 FIRST VETO - Guiroma
SEED 1 FIRST VETO - Hannibal at the Gates
SEED 2 FIRST PICK - Post Melt Antartica
SEED 1 FIRST PICK - Biomes of America
SEED 2 SECOND VETO - British Raj
SEED 1 SECOND VETO - French Brawl
REMAINING TEMPLATES - Strat ME, Malvia


The teams will then play on Post Melt Antartica, Biomes of America, Strat ME, and Malvia.

GROUP STAGE :

Group A
#1 MASTERS vs. #8 GRANDMASTERS
#4 HAWKS vs. #5 Discovery

Group B
#2 Python vs. #7 CORP
#3 Lu Fredd vs. #6 101st

Top 2 from each group will qualify for playoffs.

Get me your template preference list and who wants to play what as soon as you can (via dm), so I can start creating games. There are no slots limits, subs or anything like that for this and you can swap people out between rounds if you like, just dm if you need/want anything.
