It's a Knockout!

Duration: 2 weeks

You must vote for five games out of the 17 games played during the previous season, in order of preference.
Vote scoring is the same as for the Super League (see above)
Sometimes the way a game is played will be altered to fit better with the shorter round lengths. For instance only playing one pinball table out of four. This will be highlighted in the voting thread, and voters asked to nominate any preferences. Such as voting which pinball table to play. If the game goes through the votes will be tallied.

The game with the highest votes will be played in the qualifying round. Then the game with the second highest played in next round, and so on until the end. A different game for each round.

Qualifying Round
Duration: 2 weeks

This is a free-for-all round, anyone can enter. When the round ends, players with the best scores will continue to the next round. How many depends on how many entered the qualifying round.

9-13 entries: 8 people qualify
14-17 entries: 12 people qualify
18-24 entries: 16 people qualify
25+ entries: 20 people qualify

If only 8 people qualify, the tournament skips onto the quarter-finals. A random draw will decide which players face each other, and the quarter-final round will last 2 weeks.
If 12+ people qualify, we move on to Round One.

Round One
Duration: 2 weeks

Qualifying players will be seeded into groups, based on their high-score in the last round.

12 Players: Players are split into four seeded groups of three players.
16 Players: Players are split into four seeded groups of four players.
20 Players: Players are split into four seeded groups of five players.

Players compete for the highest score within their group.
The top two players from each group go on to the next round.
The bottom players are knocked out.

One-on-One Rounds
Duration: 1 week for each round (unless round one is skipped - see above)

Group winners from Round One will be seeded against group runner-ups for the quarter-finals. Group winners can only play runners-up from the other groups.

From here on it's a straight one on one knockout tree up till the grand final. Including a third place play-off.

Additional Bits
For all other rules and info refer to the Super League rules.
The Knockout schedule is listed in the post above.
