Answered: Clarification regarding teams leaving before eliminations

At a tournament yesterday, we had 24 teams, the minimum for a full 8 alliances. When alliance selection came around, the 3rd seeded team had left the tournament. The tournament proceeded to run with 7 alliances of 3 and one alliance of 2. We weren’t sure what to do because the event modifications in the game manual only say “tournament”, not elimination rounds.

Should have we proceeded as we did or should we have only had 7 alliances?

In situations like these, it is up to the discretion of the Event Partner on how to proceed. It is recommended that with 23 teams you proceed with 7 alliances of 3, however this is not a hard rule.

Thanks Karthik!
