STAGE 1: QUALIFIERS (4 weeks)

Each week, run a double elimination bracket qualifier where all participants compete. Assign points to players based on their final placement in each qualifier, using the below point system. At the end of each qualifier, calculate the cumulative points earned by each player.

STAGE 2: ROUND ROBIN (top 16)

Take the top 16 players with the highest cumulative points from the qualifiers. Divide them into four groups of four players each. Each group plays a round-robin format, where each player competes against every other player in their group. Award points based on the outcome of each match (e.g., 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw/tie). After all matches are played, rank the players within each group based on their cumulative points.

STAGE 3: FINALS (top 8)

Take the eight players who have advanced from the top 16 group stage. Arrange them in a double elimination bracket for the top 8 finals. Run the matches following the double elimination format until one player remains undefeated in the winners' bracket and one player remains undefeated in the losers' bracket. The player from the winners' bracket and the player from the losers' bracket who has reached the grand finals will compete for the championship.

Awarding Final Placements: Based on the final results of the top 8 double elimination bracket finals, award placements to the players accordingly. This league format provides a progression from qualifiers to the group stage, and ultimately the top 8 double elimination bracket finals, where the champion will be determined.
