FanimeCon eGaming Bracket Format Definitions

  1. Double Elimination
  2. Single Elimination
  3. Tournament Titles & Formats for FanimeCon 2022

1. Double Elimination

Double-elimination is a tournament format where players remain in the tournament until they have lost two sets, at which point they are eliminated. A double-elimination bracket determines which competitors face off against which other competitors, and in what order.

Double-elimination tournaments are divided into two brackets. The two brackets that make up a double-elimination tournament are known as the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket.

The Winners Bracket is so named because it consists of all the players with zero set losses in the tournament. All players in a double-elimination tournament start in Round One of the Winners Bracket. Players who win their sets in Winners Bracket advance to the next round of Winners Bracket. Players who lose their sets in Winners Bracket will be placed in a designated spot in the Losers Bracket.

All players in the Losers Bracket have one set loss in the tournament. Players who win their sets in the Losers Bracket advance to the next round of Losers Bracket, while the players who lose their sets are eliminated from the tournament.

By the end of the tournament, there will be one player remaining in Winners Bracket and one player remaining in Losers Bracket. These two remaining players will play in a set known as Grand Finals. If the player from Winners Bracket wins this set, they are the tournament champion. If the player from Losers Bracket wins this set, the two will play another set, known as a Grand Finals Reset, which will determine the tournament champion.

2. Single-Elimination

Single-elimination is a tournament format where players remain in the tournament until they have lost one set, at which point they are eliminated. A single-elimination bracket determines which competitors face off against which other competitors, and in what order. Certain single-elimination tournaments with multiple players may have multiple eliminations, in which case, players should consult the participating tournament ruleset for details.

Compared to double-elimination tournaments, which are divided into two brackets, single-elimination has only a single bracket. Results are determined by the last player standing, match win/loss record, the order of completion, or a combination of any of these
factors. Players should consult the participating tournament ruleset for details.
