    Format:
    The BGN Invitational 9 is mirroring that of the popular MSL Tournament that is held in Korea. Essentially there will be four groups of four players each and each group will play a mini-double elimination tournament to cut each group in half. The process is then repeated to ultimately get us down to our final two.

    1. All Matches Will Be Best of 3 Series except for the final tiebreaker match to determine the second place finisher in each group. This particular match will be one single game.
    2. This means that the maximum number of games that a player will play in a particular round of StarCraft is 7.

    Match Specifics:

    Game 1: Python
    Game 2: Loser of Game 1's Choice(each player strikes a map, winner first)
    Game 3: Winner of Game 1's Choice(no repeat of choice)

    The Elimination Game In Each Group will be played on the map Python.

    Championship Series:
    Game 1: Tau Cross
    Game 2: Loser of Game 1's Choice (Each player strikes a map, winner first)
    Game 3: Winner of Game 1's Choice (No repeats)
    Game 4: Loser of Game 1's Choice (No repeats)
    Game 5: Winner of Game 1's Choice (No repeats)
    Game 6: Python
    Game 7: Tau Cross (because everyone loves Tau Cross)

    DISCONNECTIONS
    - If the disconnection occurs within 2 minutes of the beginning of a game, the match should be restarted.
    - If the disconnection occurs after 2 minutes, the players can agree to restart the match. If one of the competitors claims that they had a huge advantage and was going to win, the administrator will take a look at the replay and give his decision. The decision of the administrator is absolute and cannot be overruled. If the decision is that a rematch should be played and a player disagrees to play it - he loses.

    DISCLAIMER

    All rules are subject to the admin's personal judgment. Generally, if you behave properly, this should be no problem. Excessive bad manner and/or possible usage of hacking tools can result in being removed for the remainder of the tournament.

    There is a possibility that we might use ICCup for this particular tournament, if there is interest in doing this, please let me know.

    Just to confirm, this is on USEast, right? Not ICCup?

    Here is my view on this. If all four members of the group want to play the matches on ICCup, then so be it. However, if there is anyone that refuses to then I'd just play them on USEast.

    Here is what is going to happen if the groups remain as above. Any group that only has 3 members will be playing a round robin set of best of 3 against the other two members of their group. The top 2 advance. If after these three games the three players are 1-1, you will continue to play single games against the other two until the ties are broken. Map selection will be the same as listed in: http://www.swoopzone.net/bgninv9

    Any groups that have 4 will follow the normal system that we have done the last couple of times.

    Any questions? Ask away.

    If anyone wants to tag along to obs or whatever, I don't mind at all (so the other players'll just have to agree )

    Hey SpaceD, can't log on to msn here. How do we report the results to you for the next brackets? I know there was one no-show in groups 1 and 4 (don't know about the others).
