We won`t accept TBAs!
The teams will be selected by a lottery. To host as many different countries as possible, we will choose one team per country in a first lottery round (2 of 3 players in a team decide to which “country pot” you belong; if all 3 players of a team are from different countries, they will be in the “international pot”). Afterwards the leftover teams/postcards will all be thrown in one pot for the remaining spots lottery.
Registration fee: 45 € / Team

Swiss Rounds (Friday):
5 rounds (morning & afternoon group, each group with 10 teams)
World Cup Single Elimination (Saturday):
1st and 2nd of both Friday groups are seeded number one of the 4 groups. The next 12 teams (ranked 3rd to 8th of both groups) will be distributed to the 4 groups according to their ranking. The new four groups are playing Round Robin (3 games per team).
1st and 2nd of each group will play a Top 8 single elimination (quarter-, half- and final).
The last 4 teams (ranked 9th and 10th) will play a consolation round (3 games per team) during the main Round Robin.
So every team will definitely play at least 8 games during the whole tournament!
We will try to organise private housing for every player from Friday until Sunday.
We will offer a free breakfast for all players on Saturday and Sunday! Furthermore there will be a grill for your own meat and veggies.
