Day 2: Division Placement Format

In the Division Placement phase, the 69 players who made it from the Play-in join the four pre-seated players. The pre-seated players are determined based on the results of the last CCT event (AI Cup). Players compete to get to the highest division possible.

  • The Division Placement phase consists of two rounds, the first being a two-game match and the second a four-game match.
  • Players who lose a match get bumped down to a lower division in Division Play (Division Placement III players get eliminated).
  • Players who win all their Division Placement matches play in the equivalent division during Division Play.
  • The time control is 10+2.
  • A bidding armageddon game decides the winner if any match ends in a tie.
