If any participant in the lower bracket loses, they are eliminated.
        • Round Robin Only
          In a Round Robin tournament, all players in a tournament or in a group play against each other in turn. Points are awarded based on wins, losses and ties, and depending upon the tournament, players with the lowest score in the Round Robin table are eliminated.

          A Swiss bracket is similar to a Round Robin bracket, but all participants do not play each other. However, everyone plays an equal number of games. Points are awarded based on wins, losses and ties. It is commonly used when Round RObin is not feasible due to a large number of players.
        • Swiss Only & DE Playoff

          A non-elimination, leaderboard style tournament, specifically for a Battle Royale game. Standing and kills determine the points, which are awarded according to the tournament rules.
