A Swiss-system tournament is a non-eliminating tournament format that features a fixed number of rounds of competition, but considerably fewer than for a round-robin tournament; thus each competitor (team or individual) does not play all the other competitors. Competitors meet one-on-one in each round and are paired using a set of rules designed to ensure that each competitor plays opponents with a similar running score, but does not play the same opponent more than once. The winner is the competitor with the highest aggregate points earned in all rounds. All competitors play in each round unless there is an odd number of them. The Swiss system is used for competitions in which there are too many entrants for a full round-robin (all-play-all) to be feasible, and eliminating any competitors before the end of the tournament is undesirable. In contrast, all-play-all is suitable if there is a small number of competitors; whereas a single-elimination (knockout) tournament rapidly reduces the number of competitors, but without proper seeding, the best competitor may not necessarily win, as good competitors might have a bad day or eliminate and exhaust each other if they meet in early rounds. Unlike group format or other systems where all pairings are known from the beginning of the competition, in a Swiss system, the match pairing for each round is done after the previous round has ended and depends on its results. The Swiss system seeks to provide a clear winner with a large number of competitors and a relatively small number of rounds of competition, without a single bad result terminating participation.
Some games may require an altered format.
The MTA Esports League takes place each night of the week from Oct 3rd, 2022 with seven full weeks of competitive gaming action. Each night features match nights for one of the five great game titles chosen.
Games should be played during match nights as much as possible. However, there may be factors for some teams that make this very difficult.
For these reasons we will allow matches to be rescheduled if done so 24 hours ahead of the scheduled match time and both teams agree. However if not, no shows result in a forfeit of weekly points.
