The league format will be lockout 1v1’s. The first half of the league will be a Round robin setup where each player gets to play against each other once, resulting in 7 matches for each individual. After that phase is completed the top 4 players will be moved into a Single Elimination best of 3’s tournament bracket for 1v1 lockout.
What is Lockout?
Players try to complete a single line (5 squares in a row on any row/column/diagonal) as quickly as possible. Squares are locked out by a player claiming them; if Player A claims a square, Player B can no longer claim that square.
The first player to complete a line wins. If a bingo line win condition is not possible for one player, the opponent can win by majority. A Bingo line is a priority win over majority. If at the end of 2 hours there isnt a winner (By bingo or majority (13 squares)), whoever has the most squares wins. A tie is only possible in the round robin matches if the timer of 2 hours runs out and both players have the same amount of squares.
