New in Version 2.0

Knockout! Format

Each round, all the participants are paired into two player matches.

If there are an odd number of players in a round, one person will get a buy that round. There are checks in place to prevent a player getting a second buy before anyone else gets their first buy.

After the round is complete, the total number of losses or "strikes" are tallied for each player. If a participant has the maximum allowed number of strikes, they do not proceed to the next round and are eliminated.

Players with less than the maximum allowed number of strikes proceed to the next round and randomly drawn into the next set of match pairs.

Last participant standing wins!

Balanced Arena Draws

Balanced Arena Draw mode does its best to match players with the arenas they have played the fewest times. If an arena is available and both players have yet to play it, they will be assigned to that arena.

Random Arena Draws

Arenas and matches are drawn randomly without taking into account how many times the players in the match have played in that arena.
