    So the last floor of the pyramid begins, and now it starts, Minor League TWO, in which yours truly almost took part, but for political reasons, decided to back out... forced me to this.

    Anyways, welcome to Minor League TWO, and adhere by the rules... and FFS, read the format of competition too. :mad




    Format of competition:


    First Round:
    1. Round Robin competition between all groups.
    2. The top two in each group, plus two Wild Cards, advance to the quarterfinals.
    3. All Quarterfinalists are at worst guaranteed a spot in the Promotion Playoffs.

    Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Final; plus Promotion playoff references.
    1. All 8 remaining users face-off vs each other on a single-elimination phase till the Final.
    2. If there were a tie at the end of each round, except the Final, the same tie-breaker procedure as to determine group winner would take place (whoever led the most amount of time would go through), to avoid any late rallies and pain in the shit tie-breakers.
    3. If there is a tie in the Final, there will be a 10 vote Sudden-death tie-breaker.
    4. Unlike the first three Divisions, the Winner AND the Runner-up will be promoted.
    5. The remaining 6 users would participate on the Promotion Playoff.

    Wild Card Procedures:
    1. The two best third place finishers in each group will take the two Wild Card berths.
    2. Wild Cards CANNOT face off vs users from the same conference right away, as described on the main bracket.
      Example: The Planetary Conference winner CANNOT face the potential third place from the same conference if it got a Wild Card Spot.
    3. The top two Wild Cards will go through, it will be determined by the most amount of votes, then percentage, amongst the three 3rd place users.

    Promotion Playoffs:
    1. The winner of Minor League One AND Runner-up are guaranteed an automatic promotion into the Premiere League.
    2. The remaining 6 users left in the dust will enter a 6 user group to promote the remaining 5 who will accompany the winner into Minor League One (Unlike the main three Divisions, only the winner was guaranteed a spot, but due to Rhaella’s departure, an extra spot had to be awarded).
    3. The top 5 users in said group will be promoted to the Premiere League.

    Schedule of competition:
    First Round: February 4th-5th
    Quarterfinals: February 7th
    Semifinals: February 8th
    Final: February 9th-10th
    Promotion Playoffs: February 11th-12th.
