1st Round – 4rd Round  > Australian Draw Pairing System
4rd Round – 7th Round  > King of the Hill/KOTH Pairing System

30 Minutes per game

Pairing system is basically a system to determine every match up in each round. There are two kinds of pairing system that will be implemented in this competition:

1. Australian Draw
Australian Draw is a pairing system based on power match (1st rank meet 2nd rank, 3rd rank meet 4th rank and so on) with no repetition in a period of time, usually one day. Thus, if a participant meets the same opponent for the second time in the same day, the pairing will be reshuffled automatically so they won’t play against each other again in the same day.

2. King of the Hill
King of the Hill is a pairing system based on power match (1st rank meet 2nd rank, 3rd rank meet 4th rank and so on) with repetition. More than one meeting is allowable.
