    • The winners of the second round matches meet in the third round, while the losers are again eliminated, and so on. Finally, two participants remain to fight for the tournament victory in the final.

  QUALIFIER SYSTEM:

Qualifiers allow a team to earn points for a parent event.
Qualifiers can consist of several events, from which all qualifier points are entered into a table. These are distributed according to the team's progress.
The qualifier with the lowest score will not be considered for the ranking.
This means that you can have a bad day or a day off without losing all chances.
Depending on which event the qualifiers are for, there are different ways to proceed afterwards.
Here are a few examples:
  • Top X qualify for the finals of the event
  • Top X qualify for a league
  • Top X qualify for an already existing league
  • Top X qualify for a relegation

What exactly follows after a qualifier can be read in the respective event under the info tab.

  OPL-Point-System:

The system does not only evaluate by wins and losses, but also includes the round results in the calculation.

We chose this system to reward teams with a high level of consistency, and to prevent a randomly generated tournament tree from allowing teams to qualify by luck at seeding.
Every round won is worth points, encouraging even supposedly worse teams to win more rounds.
We use the following formulas to award points:
  • Explanation of the variables
    • R‘A: new score of team A
    • RA: current score of team A
    • RB: current score of team B
    • SA: rounds won by team A
    • SB: rounds won by team B
    • k: round factor
    • W: win indicator (win=1; loss=0)
								
									R‘A = RA + 1/(1+10^((RB-RA)/400)) * |SA - SB| * W + (SA + k) * k
								
							

The factor is always 0 in the first round of the bracket and increases by 1 per round.
Example: Bracket with maximum 32 teams:
								
									Runde with 32: 		0
									Runde with 16: 		1
									Quarterfinals: 		2
									Semifinals: 		3
									Match for 3rd place: 		4
									Final: 		5
								
							

In case of a freewin, the match will be counted as a 3:0 win. The points for the match are distributed according to the formula.
We use the following formulas to allocate points:
  • We use the following formulas to allocate points:
    • R‘A: new score of team A
    • RA: current score of team A
    • RB: current score of team B
    • W: win indicator
      • 2:0 Win = 1
      • 2:1 Win = 0,7
      • 1:2 Loose = 0,3
      • 0:2 Loose = 0
								
									R`A = RA + 60 * (W - (1 / (1 + 10 ^((RB - RA) / 400))))
								
							
  • Each team starts with 1000 points in the ranking, regardless of the matchday from which they participate.
  • If a team misses a match day of the ranking, 5 points will be deducted from the team.
  • Teams that fall below 1000 points will receive 5 points each week to get back closer to 1000 points.

Freewin:
If the opponent forfeits or does not show up, the match will be counted as a 2-1 win.
