Rose City Royal Rumble
Stealing from the genius that is Decatur's Gene Fruit, we are hosting Portland's first single player tournament.
This two day Royal Rumble will consist of Swiss rounds on Saturday and a double elimination tournament followed by a knife fight on Sunday.
Five Swiss Rounds will be played, during which each player's team will be randomly put together (with the help of Podium) before the beginning of each round. Players will earn 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss. At the end of the Swiss Rounds players will be ranked based on win/loss points, with the total number of goals scored by their teams used as a tie breaker.
Using these rankings, teams will be created for the Double Elimination on day two. Winning teams will continue to stay together, while players falling into the losers bracket will (potentially) get shuffled into new teams.
At the end of the Double Elimination tournament, there will be a three-way knife fight to determine who is the Rose City Royal Rumble champion!
There will be a CASH PRIZE for the winner, as well as prizes for the other two finalists, and maybe even more! Who knows!?!
***There will also be a prize for the best dressed, so be sure to channel your inner pro-wrestler and find an outfit that matches!***
