August 24, 2017

As the European community descends on the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England, the details of the annual Insomnia LAN event have been announced.

Similar to previous years, the tournament will feature both open and invite teams fighting for the title of Europe's best team. Open teams will compete in four-team round-robin groups, with the top team in each group advancing to the playoffs.

The invited teams will compete in two round-robin groups of four, with all teams being seeded into the playoffs. Each series will be two maps, with map wins awarding two points and map ties awarding a single point.

The invite groups are as follows:

Group A

  • Se7en (invited)
  • Lowpander (invited)
  • ANTIC (invited)
  • No Input (qualified)

Group B

  • SVIFT (invited)
  • Ascent.EU (invited)
  • nunya (invited)
  • Weebtunnel Tactics (invited)

At the conclusion of group play on Friday, the eight invite teams will join the eight open group winners in the upper bracket of the double-elimination playoffs. Similar to prior Insomnia LANs, bracket play will feature a best-of-five grand finals (with no upper bracket advantage) and best-of-three series in the rest of the tournament.

The full planned schedule for Insomnia61 is as follows:

Is there anyone with a better understanding of this layout that can whip up a quick diagram to make it easier to visualise? Or is it essentially a standard double elimination bracket (in the later stages at least) cause I know what that looks like.

GL and HF - can't wait to see some EU gimmicks, even if there's a limited amount of Americans to annoy with them.

I think you meant group B round 3 at 21:30.

It is two four team Round Robin groups to determine seeding into a full double elimination tournament with the top teams of the open groups added. So the 8 teams from the invite bracket face the top 8 teams of the open one.

http://comp.tf/wiki/Insomnia61 has an ok diagram although the double elim tree isnt very well detailed.
