British Esports Championships

6v6 Overwatch

Tournament Format

All matches will be a “4-game set”, where 4 maps will be played regardless of the outcome of the first three maps. The winner of each match will be the team that has won more maps than the other. The map pool will be released one week before season start.

In the event of a tiebreaker, a fifth “Control” map will be played. This map will be chosen by admins and may change each week.

Weeks 1-6

Swiss format

For the first six weeks of the tournament, we will be running a Swiss format. In Swiss, everyone plays all rounds and teams are then ranked on number of wins. Teams with same win record against each other in each round are matched against each other. E.g. teams with 2 wins play against other teams with 2 wins.

Teams tied on number of wins at the end of Swiss will be ordered by map win/loss differential.

Weeks 7 & 8


After the Swiss stage finishes, the top 8 teams will progress to Playoffs. Playoffs will be double-elimination.

Quarterfinals and semifinals will take place in week 7. Finals will take place in week 8.
