This nation wars is a lot of different than previous seen. The format for this tournament is somewhat different and we will do our best to explain the format:
Each week we will be seeing a different format, which you will realise:
Week 1 (23 - 24 July)
Playday 1 and 2 will be a standard clan wars format between Korea and China.
The point system for week 1:
As you can see the 2on2 matches are valued a lot higher than the 1on1's and it will be interesting to see, how each nation will arrange the teams.
Week 2 (31. July)
Playday 3 will be a standard match, where the two captains will play a best of 5 series to determine the winner.
This means a show match betweenLawLiet and Infi.
Point system for week 2:
Week 3 (6 - 7. August)
Playday 4 and 5, we continue with a standard clan wars format with 2x 1on1 and 2x 2on2 matches.
Point system for week 3:
As noted here - the 2on2 matches will be valued a lot higher than the 1on1s.
Week 4 (13 - 14. August)
Playday 6 and 7 is the last week and will be a classic King-of-the-Hill style clan wars, where the winning team is granted 10 points.
The tournament will be about the points and especially the 2on2 matches are emphasised in this tournament which is extremely refreshing to see. The team with the most points will be declared the winner of the tournament.
