The following will contain loads of very important information. If you are participating in the tournament, you should read it carefully! Disclaimer: wall of text incoming

Today we have decided to expand our tournament one last time (to 72 teams total!). If your team made the cut, you should have received an Email. You can also check this page to see all participants:
https://www.toornament.com/en_GB/tournaments/3268804567799422976/participants/

You can still sign up until wednesday, 8th April, 21.00 CEST, but you will be put on the waiting list.
Current waiting list: (tuesday evening)
73. MixToad
74. opa! squad
75.Golden Gyps
76. ez$
77. Les Téchets
78. NC/AB
79. Sora Elektro
80. Feline Funnies
81. Ciganyok
82. Mr McVities, Grandstanding HobNobs
83. Aim Allergics
+ 6 more

The structure is now final and no more subject to change.
And this is where it gets complicated so open your energy drink of choice and activate your brain:

Invite
8 Invite teams will be seeded into two groups of 4 teams. Each group plays a Round Robin, 3 matches of Best-of-2 maps in order to determine the seeding for the knockout bracket.
All 8 invite teams will make it to the knockout bracket, where they will be joined by the best 8 open teams in a single elimination K.O. phase. All knockout matches are going to be Bo3 maps, with the sole exception being the Grand Finals (Bo5).

So far, so easy.

Open

- 16 groups of 4 teams each. Round Robin, 3 matches with Best-of-1 maps

- after the group stage all 1st placed teams will be put into a 16-team knockout-bracket. These teams will play one BO3 match against another group winner in order to determine the 8 teams that will join the invite teams in the main tournament K.O. phase. [/b] (all BO3s)

- after the group stages all 2nd placed teams will also be put into a 16-team knockout-bracket. They will compete for the inofficial title of "best 2nd placed team".

- We will be doing the same with the 3rd placed and 4th placed team. This should ensure that all teams get to play somewhat even matches at one point, because the initial group stage will likely be very inbalanced. The Round of 16 will take place on friday, Quarter-, Semi- and Finals on saturday.

--> all teams will be playing at least one BO3-maps match after the group stage, no matter how well you did! The winners of this match get to play saturday as well.

Since this is a lot of information, we created a flowchart, hoping this visualisation will help you understand the structure:
