New Format - Season 2

For this season of ProBots, we decided to do something truly special. We wanted to try a new, and incredibly exciting format for the tournament. With the goal of making a challenging format, we decided to take inspiration from one of the most challenging human competitions - the GSL.

Season 2 of ProBots 2022 will use the classic GSL two-stage tournament format.

The Format
Our format for this season will be a two-stage format.
It will begin with a double elimination group stage. Each of these 4 groups will have 4 bots, 2 of which will advance to the round of 8.
Games in this stage are all best of 3.

The second stage of the tournament will be a single elimination playoff bracket, with 8 bots that advanced through the group stage.
Round of 8 matches will be best of 3.
Semi Finals matches will be best of 5.
The Grand final match will be a best of 7.

We will be using the same seeding rules as used in the previous season of ProBots. For more information on seeding, as well as how it plays out in the new tournament format, check the season rulebook below!
