Name of the hosting entity: LudoSport Sweden
Type of event: Unrated Unofficial Open International Rookie Tournament
Bracket of the event: TBA
Event Managers: Henrik Ekman and George Johansson
Head Official: Henrik Ekman
Location of the event: Tryckeriet, Vasatorpsvägen 1b, 254 57 Helsingborg
Time of the event: Saturday 30th of September and Sunday 1st of October 2023
Criteria for qualification: Athletes from LudoSport Network, ranking Novizio or Iniziato.
Formula of the tournament: Gamma
Formula Gamma. What's that?
During group stage, all athletes will duel each other once. Each duel will consist of three assalti, with a time limit of 60 seconds. All athletes move on from the group stage to elimination.
Match pairing for elimination will be determined by style score from the group stage, instead of war points as traditional.
Each elimination match will be best of 7 assalti (first to 4 points), or until the time of 180 seconds runs out. It will be double elimination formula.
The final match will be best of 9 assalti (first to 5 points) with no time limit.
ok... but why gamma?
There are two main reasons:
We want to bring more focus to the style score of the athletes, rewarding those that put more effort into correct techniques.
We wanted double elimination to ease some of the pressure athletes feel during regular elimination and to make everyone last for a while longer, more duels, more fun.
